Why to oil belly button is an interesting question. Belly button or navel is a magical and an amazing part of our body. The main reason for applying oil on the belly button is that, our navel knows which of our blood vessels is drying, so it gushes out the oil in the same blood vessels . A new life is connected to the navel. It gets its initial nourishment from the umbilical cord connected to it.  When the child is small and has stomach ache, the mixture of water and hing or asafoetida is applied around his stomach and navel, and his pain would disappear instantly. While applying oil, we can use cotton balls or medicine dropper, so that it is easy to apply.
