Is massage oil sold in stores?
Thu, 08-08-2013 - 8:14pm

before I go crazy spending time walking up and down the aisles, does anyone know if stores even sell massage oil? Or does Johnson & Johnson still make baby oil?   Does baby oil work as well as massage oil?  what products are they near?  I don't have a kid so I wouldn't even know where the baby oil is.   I know I can ask the staff at the store, but it's embarassing, IDK.  Can someone please help?  thanks.

Good point, Purp2010!

Just to add baby oil/massage oil are not interchangeable with personal lubricant as they will degrade latex condoms.

Massage oil and baby oil are not the same.

Baby oil is scented and made for babies.

I like jojoba oil. It's not cheap, but you can get it in most drug stores and health food stores. There is really no need to be embarrased, unless you are confusing massage oil with personal lubricant. That is an entirely different product and while it can be even more embarrassing to purchase lube, it's still no big deal.

We are human after all and our skin needs oils and moisturizers. What's the big deal?

I have found some at Walmart, but it's hit and miss. Sometimes they have it and sometimes they don't. Baby oil would tend to stain things, whereas massage oil doesn't tend to stain sheets. Why not order it off the internet?

I don't understand what's so embarassing about buying baby oil.......which is found in any drug store, in the baby department, along with baby powder, lotion, shampoo, etc......all of which can be used by adults.

If you go to adult stores such as Ambience, or on line you can buy scented and/or flavored massage oils, too.

Baby oil should be available in most stores, including scented versions. Massage oils, may not be.. except maybe in places like bed & bath...

Why is it embarassing to ask for baby oil?  Even you don't have a child, how would the people at the store know?
