  2. Ritesh,

    As I have mentioned in http://hinduspirit.blogspot.com/2011/02/about-us.html, every Hindu custom holds within lots of medical aspects. Generally oil bath is taken as it disperse the dusty, oily particles present on the skin. This phenomena helps to make the skin to remove heat from inside of the body, which acts as a valve, to outside easily. The gravity during new moon day & full moon day are high. It might also be one of the reason. Please share if you knew the actual reason. We are actually in a quest to find the truth. Thanks.
