Curing sesame oil

Postby Inge » Sat Dec 03, 2011 7:17 pm

While curing sesame oil I accidentally heated it to maybe 150 degrees celsius. Does this make it unsuitable for ayurvedic oil massage?

No, but why don't you just by some high quality ayurvedic oils?

I just assumed they would be to expensive, but a quick websearch revealed they are not. So thank you again.

Who makes good Ayurvedic massage oils? I still have my stash of ancient ones. Sandalwood and camphor and Himsagar Taila were two of my favourites. I have actual snake oil as well, an old Mogul recipe. Very effective.

What I would really love right now is Mahlakshmi Vilas Ras with Gold. But you have to be very careful who you buy alchemical medicines from. I used to love taking it when I was young with chandan nadi. You would almost glow and your whole body would smell of sandalwood. Then I went into a retreat eating only black mercury and warm milk and honey. Regained my health. I was so sickly before. Does anyone still do these things? Making money and getting a career was such a mistake. Now I am just bored, worn out and old. I should go back to being a Dharma bum as soon as my youngest daughter turn 20.

Sarada and Tri-health make the best that are avaiable in the US.

To compliment Yantra Yoga practice, do we generally want a oil with cooling or heating properties?

And if on a budget, would either black sesame oil or coconut oil be recommended?

Or would a balanced—temperature and/or dosha-wise—massage oil be best?
