Sesame (Sesamum Indicum)

Commonly referred to as Sesame, this tropical plant yields the yellow or black colored seeds known as Sesame Seeds. This tropical plant is native to Africa and other subtropical areas. The light oil from the seeds contains a high concentration of unsaturated fatty acids and antioxidants. Due to its natural orientation to the sun, this warming and protective oil stimulates the circulation. It also assists in the buildup of the skin’s natural lipid layer.
