If I ever had to write a book on the many beauty rituals of India, oiling would certainly be the first chapter. Oiling – as a practice – passes as the most significant and prominent ritual to naturally promote head-to-toe beauty. Absolutely natural and side-effect free, oiling – in all actuality – does more than boosting the quality of your hair and skin. Believed to improve the health of your hair and skin, oiling is as good as signing up your body for a blissful retreat. While oils extracted from coconut, almond, olive and sesame are some of the most commonly used ones, we also have oils like rosehip, hemp and jojoba to suit skin types that are more prevalent in today’s day and age. Acne-prone and combination skin, I’m looking at you. Well, if you’re convinced and wish to unlock a healthier scalp and skin, here are the best brands to shop from.

If beauty potions and elixirs have your heart, you’re bound to love the bestsellers from RAS – a brand that presents the best-of-best secrets (a.k.a ingredients and formulations) from the farm on your shelf. The facial oils are supremely well-crafted, while the rest of the oils have been revamped recently.
Trust the OG brand to never let you down when you reach out to it for anything under the roof. Case in point – oils; face oils, hair oils body oils, pre- and post-shower oils, all kinds of oils. Forest Essentials ties all their products with a sensorial experience – quite literally – and the same reflects in the many ranges of oils. You can pick a fragrance, a target usage, a texture even.
Founded by beauty content creator Komal, Koqal is a new-age, nascent homegrown brand that deserves your attention STAT. With a very limited product line-up, the focus is quality not quantity. Out of the two multipurpose oils that Koqal offers, the rosehip one is a clear winner.
‘How many oils are too many oils’ is what comes to my mind when I think of Kama Ayurveda’s wide range of oils. From botanical oils to traditional ones for the hair and body to well-concocted essential oils, you name it and you’ll have it. What piques my interest is that in spite of having such a striking variety (of oils), each one of them reflects thought and a target-based approach.
