Brief Answer:
Can be used

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query. The olive oil otherwise meant for cooking can be used for baby massage. However, please be informed that contrary to popular belief, oil is not absorbed through the skin and all it does is to make the skin appear shiny.

Let me know if I could help further.
