Cold Pressed Sesame Seed Oil
We press our oils with passion and precision. Using a technique that requires extra low pressure resulting in truly raw and pure oils. High quality that you can taste!
Unlike other oils, unrefined sesame oil is made from seeds that are dried and then extra cold-pressed. A good quality sesame seed oil is clear in color with light taste. Taking short cuts in the production process causes the taste of the oil to vary tremendously.
Sesame oil has a very faint scent and is also a very popular carrier oil for essential oils.
Similarly to almond oil, raw sesame seed oil makes a fabulous skin oil.
