Sesame oil (botanical name: Sesamum indicum): Records of sesame seed production date back to the 1600s, making it the oldest crop grown for the use of its oil. It’s used all over the world—from Asia to Latin America—for darkening hair, for improving hair growth, as a nerve tonic, and to increase vitality. The oil is exceptionally stable because of the abundance of antioxidants present, with a shelf life of well over two years.
Its documented properties include its acting as a demulcent, diuretic, emmenagogue, emollient, galactagogue, sunblock, tonic, hair restorer, and skin revitalizer. In 2016 an international group of authors published in the American Journal of Translational Research an examination of the relationship of dietary fat intake, in particular sesame oil and the absorption and distribution of CBD isolates. The authors demonstrated a threefold increased absorption into the bloodstream. They were surprised, however, when the research showed a massive anti-inflammatory response, well beyond what would have been expected from such an increase.
Turmeric oil (botanical name: Curcuma longa): One of the most nutrient-dense spices in the world, turmeric essential oil may be used in a variety of methods to offer advantages toward inflammation, muscle pains, and more. It’s also known to assist in avoiding hair loss, utilized in numerous skin-care formulas for making skin appear younger. Turmeric essential oil is antiallergic, antibacterial, antimicrobial, antifungal, antiparasitic, antiviral, as well as antiworm.
