This Sesame Seed Carrier Oil is a refined version of sesame seed oil that can be safely used for massage. It is not to be confused with the cooking version made from toasted sesame seeds. Take care to choose the former unless you or your clients are comfortable smelling like a Chinese takeaway!
Sesame Seed (Sesamum Indicum) Oil used as a carrier oil offers a blissfully relaxing and comforting treatment. It is packed with vitamins and minerals including vitamin E and potassium which help to rejuvenate and protect the skin. It also has natural antibacterial, antiviral, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties.
Sesame has been used as a healing oil for thousands of years. It is traditionally used for Ayurvedic massage. According to Ayurveda, Sesame Oil is especially useful for nourishing and detoxifying and for ailments associated with the vata type, such as anxiety, poor circulation, constipation, bloating, and excessive dryness. The oil is also popular for Indian Head Massage.
Professional Tip: The experts at Base Formula recommend using Sesame Seed Oil on its own. Some massage therapists also like to use Sesame Seed Oil slightly warm. Our experts suggest standing the oil over a dish of warm water or dropping a heated pebble or crystal into the bowl for added effect.
