Traditional Ayurvedic Oil Known as "The King of Oils"
The sesame seed is a tiny gem that packs a mighty punch, and in the form of sesame oil it is one of the most widely and commonly used products in Ayurveda. Banyan Botanicals organic sesame seeds are harvested at just the right moment—when the outer shell opens at its peak ripeness and the sesame seed inside is revealed. Open sesame, indeed! This grounding, calming, light golden base oil is extracted from the seed using a chemical-free, natural expeller pressed method and retains its maximum nutrition in unrefined form. No external heat is applied during our extraction process.
Rich, robust, and “true” in its scent and flavor, unrefined sesame oil is a fundamental part of the nurturing Ayurvedic tradition. It has been used to support numerous systems in the body for thousands of years, and its versatility makes it the perfect base oil for a majority of our massage and herbal oils. It is also highly regarded for its ability to easily absorb into the skin and carry its soothing properties deep into the tissues. Sesame oil is most beneficial when the dry quality is in excess, making it excellent for balancing vata. Its heating nature can also be good for kapha, though take care in cases of excess kapha due to its heavy and building qualities.
Use this luscious oil for everything your heart desires, from a protective, moisturizing, and nourishing daily massage oil to a cleansing face wash. Its soothing and rejuvenating effects make it just the right oil for use on every inch of your body, including the ears, lips, teeth and gums, scalp, hair, and feet. Swish with sesame oil in your daily oil pulling routine. Bring shine to your hair with sesame oil’s penetrating properties. Practice a warm self-massage with it to bolster your ability to handle stress, promote physical strength, and nourish your muscles. Rub the soles of your feet and massage your scalp with sesame oil before bed to promote sleep. The uses are endless! With so much to offer, it’s easy to see why sesame oil is considered “the king of oils.” Let Banyan Botanicals sesame oil be your tool for deep self-care, and reap the benefits of this natural, uniquely scented oil.
