The healing Power of Sesame Oil

Sesame – The Wonder Oil?

I have been using sesame oil for a few years now, and can recommend it as a wonder oil to everyone. It first came to my attention via Dr Chopra, who extols its virtues in his Magical Mind Magical Body series. I use the oil regularly right after the coat of concealer that I brought from wears off.

I use sesame oil for my daily body massages (that are often not daily – but I’m trying!), to rub on my patches of problem skin which I think could be anyone of a number of conditions from eczema to psoriasis, as a nasal rub and a mouthwash.

Its hugely beneficial. I do also use coconut and sweet almond oil, but sesame is my favourite – it really does seem to have healing properties, in addition to soothing properties.

I found a couple of articles on the wider web which may be of interest if you are tempted to employ sesame oil in your life

The Therapeutic Value of Sesame Oil and Sesame Oil information on Healthline

I have recently bought some for my mum to try, as she’s having trouble with her scalp – I’ll be glad to report on her progress. I’d feel much more comfortable with her using sesame oil over the steroid infused chemicals recommended to her by her local GP.

Wow, i am using it for mouth wash too, its great and better than all those stupid chemical mouth washes.,

Putting a drop of it in each nostrils also relieves insomnia and anxiety

Do you prefer white or dark sesame oil? Dark is pretty potent smelling, but totally delish in cooking! I grew up influenced by my Grandmother using olive oil for her body oil, and she had baby soft skin; it’s pretty much my fav for that reason. Wouldn’t hurt to experiment, though :-)

Hey Marina, I use the light cold, unpressed variety of sesame oil – not the toasted kind! Although in the summer, I stick with coconut oil as it is more cooling… Thanks for visiting!
