I understand that olive oil is good for application on body, too. Can I use it for my 1 month old baby massage?

Answer: 

Olive oil has been used for millenia for massage. Olive oil is shown being used for massage as far back as on a prize amphora presented to winners of the original Greek Olympics. The amphora does not show it being used on a one month baby so it may be prudent to consult your pediatrician.
