This is the BEST Cold Pressed Black Sesame Oil on the market! I bought this oil to use on my painful knee. It is highly recommended by 2 of my friends. I pour some on a cotton gauze & rub it in on the area around my knee twice daily. Safe, economical & holistic product! Best price here on iHerb, too! I will use it for culinary purposes, also.
This is an easy way to get some health benefits of black sesame seeds. Very easy to just squirt a bit into my mouth. Since it's good for teeth, I just spread it around in my mouth and then swallow. Taste is mellow and pleasant and does not irritate my throat like coconut oil does.
I love the combination of black sesame, black rice, and black bean for hair growth. I lost my hairs after covid so I had to do something. I got this amazing black sesame oil and have used it. It HELPS a lot. I hope you find it help too.
I use this for the Ayurvedic technique of oil pulling. Previously used brown sesame oil, though black is supposedly better. Yet to notice a significant difference between the two. I find sesame oil pulling has really helped with tooth sensitivity in a way that name brand toothpastes never have. Also has a nice taste, which is an added bonus. Highly recommend!
After having read so many good things about black sesame oil, I stopped my searching on this oil. So far I like it, it has quite neutral smell not even close to usual white sesame oil smell which is very rich, and because of it this oil can be versatile. It is possible to add almost anywhere, for example, I add to porridge, to oatmeal, sprinkle salads of course.
As hoped - seems fresh, good quality. (Lighter consistency than good quality White sesame oils I've tried, but this one also has better, light/fresh sesame flavour - probably best sesame oil I've tried and maybe healthiest.)
Only negative is the plastic container. The producer does provide a glass container at a larger size - which I wish iHerb would also carry.
