Our Sesame Seed Oil is a cold pressed virgin organic oil. It makes a wonderful base for body and massage oils. It offers a fantastic slip while not being too heavy. It blends well with drier oils like argan to give it a drier, quicker absorbing feel.
It's important to also note that this is not a toasted sesame seed oil. Some sesame seed oils can have a darker brown color due to toasting the seeds prior to pressing. Our oil is pressed from the sesame seed with no other processes added so the color is a golden color.
Personal note: This oil has a very rich beautiful feel that some individuals feel is "heavy." I have used this oil and found it to be a wonderful addition to my winter skin blues kit as it adds plenty of moisture to the skin when blended with Tamanu and Argan.
Aroma: This batch of Sesame Seed Oil has a slight nutty aroma because it is a virgin organic oil. It is easily masked by essential oils as it is not a strong aroma.
