If you’ve had a stressful day, a warm sesame oil foot massage is a wonderful way to help you relax and sleep well. Watch my short video (2min) to find out what to do…
When we are stressed our energy is contained in the upper body, tight shoulders anyone…. massaging your feet will help to ground this energy.
Use sesame oil to pacify Vata (wind and ether elements). Seasame oil is rich in vitamins (A,B and E) as well as the minerals iron, phosphorous, magnesium, copper, silicic acid and calcium. Sesame oil is also rich in antioxidants, linoleic acid and alpha-linoleic acid; its lecithin content is beneficial to the nervous system.
Sesame oil is warming so great to use in cold weather.
Have a beautiful sleep twinkle toes!
