“The Queen Of Seed Oils”

Sesame seed oil has been used culinarily and topically for over 5,000 years. It is literally a treasure-trove teaming rich in important essential fatty acids, antioxidants and vitamins such as vitamin e, linoleic acid & omega fatty acids. These vital constituents make it unparalleled for body health both inside and out. Its high antioxidant content plays a crucial role in skin detoxification as well. These antioxidants bind to free radicals and toxins present on your skin, facilitating their removal.

As a result, sesame oil is the oil that has been most often used for daily self-massage and skin dressing known in Ayurveda practise as “Abhyanga“, helping cleanse, nourish, balance and restore the body and soothe the mind. Sesame oil may be used for all skin types either neat or incorporated with other herbals and essential oils to further enhance the desired effect.

Sesame oil has also been used for improved oral health.  It has been documented for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine in the tradition of oil pulling, a practice that involves swishing oil around in the mouth. Oil pulling practise has been used to prevent tooth decay, bleeding gums, dry mouth, and improve teeth, gums, and jaw health. Just take 1-2 tablespoons of organic Sesame Oil in the morning & swish around in your mouth for 10-20 min.

You don’t have to be a follower of Ayurveda practises to reap the many benefits of Sesame seed oil. Unrefined organic sesame seed may be used by most people as a massage oil, for skin care, and in cooking. It is non-comedogenic and perfectly suitable for all skin types.

Description

Sesame: (Sesamum indicum)~seed Origin: India. Cold pressed from organically cultivated, virgin Sesamum indicum. Primary constituents: linoleic acid (37-47%), oleic acid (35-43%), palmitic (9-11%) and stearic acid (5-10%) with trace amount of linolenic acid.

  • *Steps to perform self- massage with Sesame Oil (abhyanga)
  1. Brush your skin with a dry brush to remove dead skin, dirt and debris from its surface as well as prepare the skin’s pores for receiving the oil. Note: This step is not necessary but will greatly enhance the treatment.
  2. Warm your oil by rubbing the oil between the palms of your hand or gently placing in a pot of hot water. Don’t microwave!
  3. Gently but firmly, massage your body all over: begin with the neck, working your way down to your feet. Use long strokes for limbs and short strokes for joints. Don’t forget your fingers and toes, and pay extra attention to the soles of your feet.
  4. Let the oil sit on skin for 10-15 minutes. Don’t skip this step, as abhyanga’s deeper benefits depend on the body’s absorption of the oil.  It takes a few minutes for the oil to penetrate to the deepest layers of the skin, and another several minutes for it to penetrate the tissues of the internal body.
  5. Rinse excess oil with a cool shower on warm days, or warm shower (not hot) on cold days.
  6. Frequency: At least 2-3 x weekly. Daily is best if you can.

Note: *Sesame oil has a naturally warming effect while Coconut oil is more cooling. You may choose to use either oil or a combination of both in your routine depending on season and your body type.
