Til Tail Is Often Used As Base Oil In Joint Pain Relieving Oils. Know Why?


Also known as Gingelly oil or more commonly as til tail, sesame oil is extracted from the tiny little sesame seeds. In various households, especially in Asian houses, it is also used as a vegetable oil for cooking purposes as it lends a distinct aroma to the dish, and as well spruces up the taste. People also use this extract in order to enhance the flavour of their dishes. Besides, it is also a much better alternative to those other varieties of oil when it comes to our health and well-being.


Benefits are more

However, the benefits of the Til Tail are not limited to the culinary department only. The oil comes loaded with a whole host of health promoting properties, which make this extract all the more sought after among those suffering from varied health issues. This is because it contains a variety of vitamins, minerals as well as some incredible health promoting organic compounds. And that is precisely what makes it increasingly popular in the alternative healthcare sector, including the traditional means of treatments, especially Ayurveda.


Remarkable properties

  • Til oil exhibits several anti-inflammatory as well as anti-bacterial properties, which make it an excellent healing agent. That is precisely why this oil increasingly features as a popular component in various topical beauty and skin care products.
  • Sesame oil is known to be one of the best oils around for our scalp health. Regular massage using this oil makes our hair stronger and shinier. Not only that, it also reduces hair breakage as well as premature greying of hair.
  • A nice full body massage using this oil goes a long way in helping us relax, and keeps the problem of chronic stress at bay. Owing to the presence of the amino acid called tyrosine, til oil helps balance the levels of a neurotransmitter known as serotonin, which enhances and uplifts the mood.

Relieves Joint Pains

However, one of its most significant virtues is the ability of Til tail to provide relief from joint associated pain and discomfort. It is for this reason that the oil is often used as a base oil for massaging sore, stiff and achy joints. That is the reason why sesame is being used widely in a variety of joint relief balms, blends and ointments. So let us zoom in and understand how it really works.

As we mentioned earlier, sesame seeds are loaded with the goodness of various minerals. Copper is one such mineral found in sesame oil that exhibits significant anti-inflammatory properties. It not only reduces the swelling in and around the joints, but also provides relief from pain and discomfort, strengthening the bones all along.

Not only this, the presence of zinc together with copper, in this oil allows the sesame oil to stimulate blood circulation around the affected area. It also promotes the production of red blood cells in our body, while increasing the rate of metabolism.

And owing to its property of active skin penetration, the Til tail detoxifies and nourishes not just the surface level but works deep down to the muscle level as well. Moreover, another distinct effect of Sesame oil that it essentially helps loosen the tight and sprained muscles makes the oil a perfect aid in relieving joint and muscle pain.


Take care

Sesame oil is deemed to be one of the best massage oils around, especially if you happen to be suffering from pain or discomfort in the shoulders, knees or even in the lower back region. It can likewise provide relief from the swelling and discomfort which is associated with the debilitating bone condition called arthritis. Therefore, if you happen to be suffering from any of the above mentioned conditions, you may either try using some sesame oil at home, or you need to take to some joint pain relieving product which uses Til tail as base oil.

However, since the oil is strong and hot in nature, it is recommended to dilute it before using it for massage. You could prepare a pleasant little DIY blend by adding to it some carrier oil of your choice, such as frankincense oil. Apply this oil on the affected area and gently massage, and you will be able to observe significant relief in a few days’ time.
