1. Anti-aging treatment

Sesame oil has its origin in the Middle East and you may have already observed the natural radiant glow of the ladies from there. Sesame oil has an amazing power to provide active ingredients such as vitamins, fatty acids and antioxidants to the skin without going deep and irritating the skin. These nutrients do miracles to prevent premature aging.

2. Natural sunscreen

Among the dew oils that serve as natural sunscreens such as carrot seed oil, wheat germ oil and red raspberry oil, sesame oil stands out as an effective one because it can neutralize the free radicals from harmful sun rays. However, its SPF stands around 4, which means that it might need extra help when using as a sunscreen.

3. Natural hair treatment

If you have been a fan of my posts, you may have already gone through the benefits of coconut oil, olive oil and jojoba to hair and now it’s time for sesame oil to shine. Sesame oil is a great natural remedy for dry hair and its long term use can prevent premature greying and increase the circulation to the head.
