Vitamin E has powerful anti-oxidant properties and is central to immune system, intra-cellular communication and other cellular processes.

In addition, vitamin E fights cholesterol buildup in the arteries by preventing the adherence of plaque to the vessel linings. Vitamin B6 is also an important vitamin, essential for life and health of both the skin and nerves.
Sesame seeds oil is primarily composed of poly-unsaturated fatty acids, like omega-6 fatty acids, which are readily digested by the body and further help to break down cholesterol buildup in the body. These fatty acids make sesame oil a great dietary choice for those wishing to lower cholesterol levels and reduce blood pressure. In addition, sesame oil is unique in that it is both stable at room temperature and principally composed of medium chain fatty acids, this stability is usually only found in long chain fatty acids like those occurring in Olive oil. This is due to the two naturally occurring preservatives sesamol and sesamin.

Sesame oil is used for many types of treatments in ayurvedic medicine, whether external, internal, and semi-internal. Externally it is used for massage and can be combined with herb decoctions to balance or augment their properties. In addition, there are many benefits of Sesame oil for hair. Sesame hair oil moisturizes and the hair and follicles, stimulates healthy growth, and enhances the natural luster of hair. Internally, it is recommended for cooking, especially where high-cholesterol is a concern. Further, it is used semi-internally as a mouth wash where its anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial, and bone supportive properties are beneficial.
