Organic Sesame Oil for “Abhyanga”
Sesame Oil easily absorbs into the skin and carries its soothing properties deep into the tissues, making it ideal for self-massage or abhyanga, a key practice in Ayurveda.
How Abhyanga Soothes and Purges
Abhyanga, a traditional Ayurvedic practice, offers numerous benefits for overall well-being. This therapeutic self-massage technique involves applying warm oil to the body, providing deep nourishment and relaxation. Abhyanga promotes improved blood circulation, which enhances the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to tissues and organs, while aiding in the removal of toxins. The rhythmic strokes of abhyanga help calm the nervous system, reduce stress, and promote better sleep. It also nourishes and softens the skin, boosts lymphatic drainage, strengthens the immune system, and supports joint mobility. Regular abhyanga practice can leave one feeling rejuvenated, balanced, and revitalized, fostering a deeper mind-body connection.
This luxurious and nurturing practice protects, moisturizes, and nourishes the body, while grounding the nervous system and relaxing the mind. It is also perfect for oil pulling and as a face cleansing oil.
