100% wildcrafted, cold pressed black sesame oil
To use for abhyanga practice, begin by warming the oil. Place a small amount of oil in a metal or glass container and warm it by placing it in a larger container of hot water. Remove from the hot water when it's warm, but still comfortable to the touch.
Sitting in a warm bath or on a designated abhyanga towel, begin with your face and outer part of your ears, using a circular or back-and-forth motion as is comfortable.
Massage both the front and back of your neck and the upper part of your spine.
Massage your arms, using a back-and-forth motion over your long bones and a circular motion over your joints.
Use a clockwise circular motion to massage over your heart and abdomen.
Massage your legs, using the same long motion over your leg bones and a circular motion over your joints.
Last but not least, massage your feet. Use the open part of your hand to massage vigorously back-and-forth over the soles and give your toes special attention.
Let the oil sink into your skin for 2-20 minutes. Then wash it off in a warm bath or shower.
All oils are highly flammable. Thoroughly launder clothing or towels that have absorbed oil and dry on low heat to avoid a fire hazard. Towels left unattended with oil on them can spontaneously combust, causing a fire.
