Sesame oil for skin and hair health

We have all known sesame oil either from its large use in cosmetics or from our grandmother’s kitchen as she makes pickles or chutneys. Sesame oil is one of the earliest and most beneficial oils known to mankind. From being traditionally used in the Indian kitchen to being an important element in the practice of “Abhyanga” or self-massage, sesame oil is considered extremely auspicious in the Hindu culture. 

What makes sesame oil better than other oils for your hair and skin:

It also contains vitamin E, which can help protect the skin and scalp from environmental factors like pollution. It also contains essential fatty acids that can keep your skin and scalp moisturized and hydrated. It also has healing components that are beneficial to hair and skin health.

    Sesame oil can be used with a combination of essential oils but since it is a great absorbent by itself, it can be used as it is. It can be massaged directly into the hair and gently applied from root to tip. For best results, it is recommended to use warm oil for this purpose.


    With numerous valuable properties, sesame oil can be a solution for most hair and skin problems. However, making sure the oil is pure and unprocessed is essential to protect ourselves from additional problems. Try our wood-pressed sesame oil now!
