Sesame oil is one of the premier health promoting oils used in classical ayurveda and has been used for thousands of years internally as well as externally. Ayurvedic practitioners have traditionally used “medicated” or treated oils topically to assist with conditions such as dry skin, eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis while also being treasured as a hair tonic. Sesame oil is rich in vitamins A, B, and E as well as iron, calcium, magnesium, and copper (which is considered to be effective in treating the pain and swelling of rheumatoid arthritis). The oil contains linoleic acid, alpha linoleic acid as well as lecithin which is especially noted to benefit brain cells and the nerve tissue. Due to this lecithin content it is believed to nourish the mind and the nerves and regular use is believed help to alleviate and support the body in dealing with depression and fatigue while giving a sense of feeling refreshed and revitalized.
Triphala is a three-fruit combination revered in classical ayurveda with an almost mystical intrigue because of the panacea-like qualities attributed to this blend comprised of Amalaki fruit (Emblica officinalis), Bibhitaki fruit (Terminalia belerica), Haritaki fruit (Terminalia chebula) in equal proportions. Each berry in Triphala has a specific affinity for balancing a different dosha (constitution) making the combination a perfect, balanced, and tri-doshic synergy. This gives triphala the unique ability to balance vata, pitta, & kapha while rejuvenating the skin and deeper tissues. This amazing herb combination assists in the cleansing of subtle channels while the body also recognizes and responds to Triphala as a tonic and rejuvenating agent that nourishes the body.
The physical production of Himalayan Triphala Oil requires extracting the essence of the healing properties of Triphala prior to gentle blending & heating in order to eventually reach the highest quality possible. This insures that the special properties are achieved by the taking of extra steps and not cutting any corners in order to provide a product like none other in the market. Processing and infusing the sesame oil with the powerful, synergistic and rejuvenating properties of Triphala render Himalayan Triphala Oil a balanced and exceptionally permeable, penetrating oil enabled to deliver its deeply nourishing gifts of rejuvenation.
Suggested uses: As a natural moisturizing agent for the whole body, gently massage a small amount of Himalayan Triphala Oil into the skin while still slightly damp after showering. Apply larger amounts topically to sore muscles, joints, and problem areas that are due to stress, injury, and chronic pain. Himalayan Triphala Oil makes an outstanding massage oil treatment for personal or professional use. It may also be used as a mouthwash (called oil pulling) for problem gums and inflammation. For dry sinuses after using the Neti Pot™, apply ten drops to a clean palm, dip the pinky fingertip in the oil, and gently apply and rub well inside of each nostril.
