Sesame oil has a millenary tradition as a Ayurvedic massage oil. Due to its content of lecithin and other unsaponifiable constituents, it penetrates well into the skin. Therefore, sesame oil is the main raw material for Ayurvedic herbal oils. Sunflower oil can be used as a very light oil for the massage or as a mouth wash oil. It is a base oil which is suitable for all constitutions.
