Sesame

Wow, it really is a magical plant. Until I started researching for this blog, I hadn’t actually seen a sesame plant. They are beautiful and to harvest them must take an enormous amount of resources as the seeds come from such tiny pods!

Just look how small they are in this persons hand.

I absolutely love the taste of sesame oil. I have been doing oil pulling with sesame oil for a few months now, and really,my teeth have never looked whiter. there are many many articles on the web about oil pulling, but the benefits for me, have been a fresher, cleaner feeling on my teeth and they are much whiter. I also use a tongue scraper first thing in the morning as well. Both of these are Ayurvedic methods.

I use sesame seeds in cooking and I use the oil as well in salads. the taste is nutty and yummy and truly one of my favourites.
