Our Sesame Seed oil cold pressed virgin and certified organic from Mexico has a clear light golden color, aroma and taste typical of sesame seeds. Use Sesame seed oil in hair care to moisturize the scalp, promote new hair growth and minimize appearance of split ends. An excellent oil for 'hot oil' hair treatments. Because Sesame is a highly emollient oil with excellent slip it is a popular base oil for massage either singularly or blended with another carrier oil. Sesame is a mildly warming oil and blends well with Wasabi Oil when a warming massage is desired for muscular aches, pains, and stiffness.
