Olive oil can be used for a massage on the Vishuddhi, as well as the head and backbone. When you touch somebody with oil, you see, the Krishna tattwa acts… because Krishna is the one who represents the Madhuria, the sweetness of your character. In little little things are expressed Madhuria… like in poetry or in relating some events. Krishna’s Leelas were all full of Madhuria… it’s like a sport… it’s like a sport (1985-0502)

Oil is useful for correcting a bad Hamsa Chakra, by putting it into the nose (1984-1005), and olive oil can also be placed in the ears to prevent drying out (1987-0408); So oil is the one that helps you… in your ears, if you can put some olive oil, heated up… with one garlic piece in it… that’s very good for the ears. So the oil is the one that keeps your Vishuddhi alright (1985-0502)

Oil is to be put on your heads at least once a week… that will keep your heads cool. And also before taking a bath, use some oil for rubbing on your hands or on your body (1988-1221); To be applied to the hair before a head bath (1990-0811.2); You must put oil on your head… at least on Saturday… put sufficient oil, and then wash your head – but you will not do that, and then, you start losing your hair. Why not do something where it is needed, to look after yourself also (1997-1005); We lose our hair very fast, because we don’t use oil as we should – starting with the hair at the Sahastrara (1991-0728)

It would be a good idea… to start using a little oil for the head… in the night… as Sahaja Yogis, you should… better use some nice coconut oil, and rub on your head nicely, in the night… and in the morning… after all it doesn’t show much… and comb your hair in a proper way. If your dresses… and your hair are… like bhoots… then the bhoots will take over, thinking… ‘oh, this is a bhoot sitting down here… better take hold of that bhoot’… so dress up in a way… that you shouldn’t have hair on your forehead at all… keep it straight… make it nice… and have absolutely clean foreheads (1986-0504)

So before you start getting bald, better try putting some oil on your head… that’s one very important thing, Sahaja Yogis have to do… you can take vibrated oil if you like… and… I think olive oil is good… but better than olive oil, I find, is coconut oil… it is better for the growth of the hair. But sometimes you can also put almond oil… is also good for you… because if you have any problems that you feel exhausted, your nerves need attention, you are a nervous type of person, then almond oil is good for you (1986-0504)

People who have teeth which are troubling them, must look after them. It’s no good just going to the dentist… simple thing is to use some olive oil and some salt… rub it on your gums nicely every day before sleeping… that will keep your teeth alright. You will be amazed… that til today, I have not been to any dentist (1986-0504)
