Did you know?
Sesame oil is one of the base products in over 90% Ayurvedic oil treatments. Sesame seed is a storehouse of many nutrients and a symbol of prosperity and health in ancient folklore. Its greatest benefit is in balancing Vata. It has a warming property, grows in a dry climate and in turn, is beneficial when dry quality is in excess.
It is known to enter the skin deeply carrying its nourishing and soothing properties. It is also a rich source of vitamin E (an antioxidant) and other nutrients like zinc, copper, magnesium, calcium, iron and Vitamin B-6. These properties provide nourishment, protection and detoxify damaged skin and hair. The high concentration of omega-6 leads to good moisturising properties.

Ayurvedic Uses of Sesame Oil
1. Oil Pulling: Make it a morning routine to swish a tbsp of sesame oil into your mouth up to 20 mins and then spit it. Rinse with warm water. Follow by rinsing with mouthwash or brushing. It draws out mucus and improves gum health.
2. Before Sleep: To promote healthy sleep patterns, massage the scalp and soles of the feet with sesame oil before bedtime.
3. Body Massage: Massage it all over your body to release skin impurities, then bathe or shower with warm water. Also, massage and put some warm oil in your ears.
4. Nasya Treatment: Sniff a little sesame oil to protect your nose and sinuses. Using your little finger, massage and rub the oil inside your nostrils. Then pinch and release the nostrils breathing sharply.
