A massage therapist writes, "After doing Abhyanga every morning after dry brushing and hot shower, my skin felt incredibly moisturized. Being a massage therapist, I have used a myriad of different oils though, Sesame oil was never something I had thought to use for the skin. Its drag was long and smooth without leaving an oily mess or obnoxious residue that one may feel the need to wipe off. I noticed the smell to be thick, comforting and nourishing but was not overwhelming and probably unnoticeable to anyone around me. after the end of the day my legs and hands especially still felt moisturized. This is quite shocking to me as this time of year I have dry cracked skin on my hands and shins without fail. I haven't had any redness or flakiness since the second day of this practice. I'm tempted to use it on my scalp and hair as a deep conditioner. This is certainly something that I look forward to being a staple in my daily routine."
