Some of the brands of sesame oil that are recommended:
There are many locations to buy sesame oil: your local drug store, an online pharmacy, a high-end grocery store, etc.
But Amazon has proven itself to be a very reliable online retailer of many physical products. If you find a better price elsewhere, that’s great. But do yourself a favour and at least research the product there and compare prices.
Below are some of the brands of sesame oil that I recommend:
Widely used for Ayurvedic Skin Care, this sesame oil has warming properties that make this a great choice for massages.
Also popular for aromatherapy, this food grade oil is organic and cold pressed.
The link below is for the 16oz bottle.
Ingredients: Organic sesame seed oil (99.5%), Vitamin E (tocopherol – used as an antioxidant to preserve freshness)
Directions: For skin care, apply to face and body as desired. Use this sesame oil to moisturize and soften the skin. It can also be used for dry feet, knees, and elbows.
This is a lighter, fast absorbing formula than the one above.
One recommended use of this sesame oil is to add some to your bath water. This keeps your skin from drying out after a hot bath, especially during the winter.
The link below is also for the 16oz size. Note that this oil is not as ‘pure’ as the brand above. This may make for a more effective skin moisturizer, but it certainly is not food grade or as healthy as pure sesame oil.
Ingredients: Isopropyl Myristate, Sesame Oil, PEG-40, Sorbitan Peroleate, Pripylparaben, BHT, Fragrance
Another great offering that I found for you. This sesame oil from Bayan Botanicals is pure, unrefined, and certified organic. The bottles are BPA-free, as you would expect from an organic product.
The reviews are very positive for this oil. Many of them have the consumer using it for Ayurvedic medicine and oil pulling.
You can see from the ingredients that this is the purest possible source of sesame oil.
Available in a small 16oz or medium 36oz bottle for you to try, this brand also has the super-economy size 128oz jug. If you’re a fan of using sesame oil on your skin, like I am, this is the best deal going.
Ingredients: Pure certified organic Sesame Oil
Directions: For skin health and moisturizing use alone or mixed in with your favorite moisturizer.
For oral oil pulling, swish inside your mouth, between the teeth, and along the gums for 10-20 minutes.
