Sesame Oil (Sesamum indicum)
Exceptionally rich and exquisite, this oil comes from choice sesame grown organically. This sesame oil is processed with strict standards and is used extensively in Ayurveda.
Great as an all-over body moisturizer or massage oil. Sesame oil is light, odor-free and spreads easily over skin. It absorbs readily, with no greasy feeling. It is rich in nutrients and because it's rich in nutrients it is a good choice for those who like body oils or need extra moisturizing.
Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to a tablespoon of sesame oil and you have a light, pure body perfume. This cold-pressed oil is lightweight and rich in vitamin E, protein, lecithin and minerals - all of which are essential to healthy skin.
Sesame oil helps speed healing, prevent drying, soften skin, and even has a natural sunscreen effect of SPF4. It's recommended as a carrier oil (for aromatherapy treatments), a base for massage oil, bath oil or all-over body oil.
The most esteemed seed oil in all of Ayurveda, sesame seed oil, or til, contains the lignin sesamin known for its healing properties.
