Tiny seeds, with a powerful punch, sesame seeds have been used for over 3,500 years in the Mediterranean & 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 & after using it, it is easy to see why! Sesame oil is traditionally used in Ayurvedic body oil formulations due to its warming, grounding & calming effects on the nervous system. It is highly nourishing & 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 & improve concentration. In Sanskrit, its name translates to “smell of the horse” which refers to its unique smell & its ability to strengthen immunity. It is classified as an adaptogen, which means that it helps the body & mind to cope with stress, anxiety & 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 & tumor growth. With antibiotic, antibacterial & rejuvenating properties, this miracle root is extremely nourishing for dry skin, while also promoting firmness & elasticity.
Cinnamon has been valued for thousands of years & dates back to ancient Egyptian times when it was rare & 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 & contains highly potent antioxidants, anti-inflammatory properties, supports healthy metabolic function & helps maintain a strong immune system, especially when seasonal threats are high. It has even been found to reduce the growth of cancer cells & inhibit the growth of tumors.
