    Benefits Of Sesame Oil and OIL PULLING sesame oil

    Dear friends,

    these are some benefits of sesame oil found in a website:

    VEDIC EXCELLENCE: Sesame Seed Oil has been used as healing oil for thousands of years. Sesame oil is mentioned in the Vedas as excellent for humans.It is naturally antibacterial for common skin pathogens, such as staphylococcus and streptococcus as well as common skin fungi, such as athlete's foot fungus. It is naturally antiviral. It is a natural anti-inflammatory agent.
    RELIEF FROM DANDRUFF: Used after exposure to wind or sun it will calm the burns. It nourishes and feeds the scalp to control dry scalp dandruff and to kill dandruff causing bacteria. It protects the skin from the effects of chlorine in swimming pool water. Used before and after radiation treatments, sesame seed oil helps neutralize the flood of oxygen radicals, which such treatment inevitably causes.

    MEDICINAL USES: Used after exposure to wind or sun it will calm the burns. It nourishes and feeds the scalp to control dry scalp dandruff and to kill dandruff causing bacteria. It protects the skin from the effects of chlorine in swimming pool water. Used before and after radiation treatments, sesame seed oil helps neutralize the flood of oxygen radicals, which such treatment inevitably causes.In recent experiments in Holland by Ayurvedic physicians, the oil has been used in the treatment of several chronic disease processes, including hepatitis, diabetes and migraines.

    In vitro, sesame seed oil has inhibited the growth of malignant melanoma (a skin cancer): PROSTAGLANDIN LEUKATRINES and ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS 46: 145-150, 1992. Also in vitro, sesame seed oil has inhibited replication of human colon cancer cells



    EFFECTS OF OIL BATH:
    ON THE SKIN: oil soluble toxins are attracted to sesame seed oil molecules, which can then be washed away with hot water and a mild soap. Internally, the oil molecules attract oil soluble toxins and carry them into the blood stream and then out of the body as waste.

    VAGINAL YEAST INFECTIONS: Used as a douche mixed with warm water, the oil controls vaginal yeast infections.

    Sesame seed oil absorbs quickly and penetrates through the tissues to the very marrow of the bone. It enters into the blood stream through the capillaries and circulates. The liver does not sweep sesame seed oil molecules from the blood, accepting those molecules as friendly.

    Sesame seed oil helps joints keep their flexibility. It keeps the skin supple and soft. It heals and protects areas of mild scrapes, cuts and abrasions. It helps tighten facial skin, particularly around the nose, controlling the usual enlargement of pores as skin ages chronologically. It can also be used for massaging babies.


    AS AN ANTIOXIDANT: Research shows that sesame seed oil is a potent antioxidant. In the tissues beneath the skin, this oil will neutralize oxygen radicals. It penetrates into the skin quickly and enters the blood stream through the capillaries. Molecules of sesame seed oil maintain good cholesterol (HDL) and lower bad cholesterol (LDL).
    Sesame seed oil is a cell growth regulator and slows down cell growth and replication.
    In both the small intestine and the colon, some cells are nourished by fat instead of sugar. The presence of sesame seed oil can provide those cells with essential nourishment.

    Contd......

    THOUGHT FOR TEENS: Teen boys and girls have learned, wrongly, that all oil is bad for their facial skin. Heavy oils and toxic oils and creams are bad for all facial skin. But sesame seed oil is the one oil which is actually good for young skin.
    It helps control eruptions and neutralizes the poisons which develop both on the surface and in the pores. With sesame oil, no cosmetics are needed. The oil will cause young facial skin to have and display natural good health.

    EXPERIMENTAL RESULT: In an experiment at the Maharishi International College in Fairfield, Iowa, students rinsed their mouths with sesame oil, resulting in an 85% reduction in the bacteria, which causes gingivitis.
    As nose drops, sniffed back into the sinuses, sesame seed oil has cured chronic sinusitis. As a throat gargle, it kills strep and other common cold bacteria. It helps sufferers of psoriasis and dry skin ailments. It has been successfully used in the hair of children to kill lice infestations. It is a useful natural UV protector.

    Also friends, there was a technique mentioned as OIL PULLING.

    This technique is very simple and it helps to maintain our health.

    PROCEDURE FOR OIL PULLING: Take 2 teaspoons of pure sesame oil, put it in your mouth so that it touches all part of your mouth. Keep it inside for 15-20 minutes. Let it pass it through your teeth also. Within 15 minutes, the oil will bubble and turn white in color and get diluted. Then just spit it out. After that, clean your mouth 4-5 times.

    BEST TIME FOR OIL PULLING: The best time for doing this is early morning after brushing your teeth, before breakfast. One gets good results from that.

    HOW LONG TO BE DONE: It is suggested to do this technique for 9 months to 1year to get the best results. It induces hunger for those who don't have appetite, peaceful sleep, and peace of mind. It is also effective for headaches, digestion problems, and backaches. It can be done for all age groups. It gives protection from diseases due to aging. Skin becomes free from wrinkles and cracks. The effects of good blood circulation can be seen in your fingers and toes.

    Such changes will also take place in the internal organs and they will function with good health. That is, proper blood circulation will be there in all organs of the body, which is a sign of good health.

    Hi
    Thanks for sharing these tips. My mother always stressed the importance of sesame oil. She also tells me that mosquitos (chennai is notorious for its mosquitoes) do not bother her much because they are repelled by the mild smell of the oil!!

    Cheers
    Jay
