Until recently, I believed that the belly button doesn’t serve any purpose once the umbilical cord connected with the mother is severed. I assumed the sole purpose of this particular origin point was giving oxygen and nutrients to the embryo from the mother and as that function ends after the cutting of the umbilical cord, what else could the belly button function for? Well, a surprising claim surfaced the internet with numerous articles on ‘oil in the belly button,’ ‘belly button oiling,’ and ‘navel therapy’ and made me think otherwise.
You are already aware of aromatherapy which is a holistic healing treatment that uses extracts from natural plants to improve both physical and emotional health and wellbeing. Aromatherapy uses aromatic essential oils to enhance the health of your body, mind, and spirit. This particular therapy believed in the power of essential oils to affect your body. As the benefits of essential oils skyrocketed with claims of success, another way to use essential oils to benefit your body has come into view. Although it has been practiced for centuries in ayurvedic treatments, this particular practice of belly button oiling became insanely popular recently.
# According to the Ayurvedic practice of belly button oiling, navel oil therapy can detoxify, nurture, and treat ailments in the body. Ayurveda is an ancient Indian holistic healing system based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, spirit, and body. However, the study of Ayurveda is considered as pseudoscientific while the practice is classified as protoscience or unscientific. Because several studies on Ayurvedic medicine proved that there was only one scientific study of Ayurvedic medicine out of a collection of more than 7,000 studies.
