Tiny seeds, with a powerful punch, sesame seeds have been used for over 3,500 years in the Mediterranean and India for their powerful healing effects. The sacred text of Ayurveda, Caraka Samhita, calls sesame oil the best of all oils. Ayurveda most certainly has a love affair with this oil and after using it, it is easy to see why! Sesame oil is traditionally used in Ayurvedic body oil formulations due to its warming, grounding and calming effects on the nervous system. It is highly nourishing and moisturizing, bringing deep hydrating relief to dry skin. Finally, sesame oil also has powerful anti-microbial properties which help eliminate any funk from the body, while keeping your ojas, or immune system, strong.
One of the most important Ayurvedic herbs, ashwagandha root has been used for over 3,000 years to relieve stress, increase energy and improve concentration. In Sanskrit, its name translates to “smell of the horse” which refers to its unique smell and its ability to strengthen immunity. It is classified as an adaptogen, which means that it helps the body and mind to cope with stress and even reduce cortisol levels. Many of its profound health benefits are due to its high concentration of withanolides, which have been shown to combat inflammation. With antibiotic, antibacterial and rejuvenating properties, this miracle root is extremely nourishing for dry skin, while also promoting firmness and elasticity.
Cinnamon has been valued for thousands of years and dates back to ancient Egyptian times when it was rare and highly regarded as “a gift fit for kings”. Cinnamon is the inner bark of a tropical, evergreen tree which contains high amounts of cinnamaldehyde, the compound scientist believe to be responsible for most of cinnamon’s health benefits. Cinnamon has a warming effect and contains highly potent antioxidants, anti-inflammatory properties, supports healthy metabolic function and helps maintain a strong immune system, especially when seasonal threats are high.
