SESAME OIL (Sesamum indicum)
Obtained from: the seed
Best used for:
1. Psoriasis and eczema
2. Rheumatism or arthritis
3. Inflamed skin conditions
 
The highest quality oil is cold-pressed from the tiny seeds. It is golden-yellow with a slightly bitter, yet nutty aroma. There is also a dark brown, strongly flavoured sesame oil which is extracted from the toasted seeds. However, this pungent oil is not at all suitable for Aromatherapy. Light sesame oil is rich in vitamins A and E and minerals. Vitamin E stimulates muscular activity and vitamin A acts to protect the skin. It is also a natural
sun screen, filtering out, on average up to 25% of the sun’s rays. Aromatherapists in Scandinavia use sesame oil for cases of psoriasis and dry eczema. Sesame oil can also be extracted by solvents, and this is used for soap manufacturing. Sesame oil is noteworthy for its stability, as some of its components act to give an antioxidant effect.
This is an excellent oil for massage, but the odour can be a little strong.
