Our sesame oil is cold-pressed, organic, unrefined, and extra virgin. We chose black sesame oil due to its higher antioxidant properties and its use in TCM & Ayurvedic traditions. Black sesame oil is also anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-inflammatory. We recommend using it as a finishing oil on our recipes, on skin for burns, scrapes, and stretch marks, or for nourishing hair & scalp. Its natural warming and calming properties make it especially helpful in the fertility to postpartum journey.
