Tales from nature

Sesame oil is obtained from the seeds of the sesame plant, with a botanical name Sesamum Indicum, belonging to the Pedaliaceae family. Sesame can reach a height of 50 cm, it has white flowers and its seeds are so small that 500 seeds are needed to obtain one gram of oil.

However, the oil yield is very high because while it can be extracted from 40% to 60% of sesame oil, when for example to extract olive oil, the yield from the fruit is only from 15% to 35% . It is a plant widely cultivated in India, Burma, Africa, China and the United States, in Europe, mostly in the most Mediterranean regions in the South such as Italy and Greece.

Sesame oil is rich in oleic acid and linoleic acid, which are sources of essential fatty acids omega 3 and 6. The seeds are rich in mineral salts such as iron, phosphorus, magnesium, copper, silicic acid and calcium.

The presence of natural antioxidants fights aging and free radicals as well as increasing the duration of sesame oil. It is used as an anti -inflammatory for the prevention and well -being of the skin. It also has antiviral and antibacterial properties, being a powerful remedy against pathogenic agents that can attack the epidermis and cause infections especially of a fungal nature as in the case of streptococci and staphylococci.
