Can Everyone Use Sesame Oil?
The main problem concerning sesame oil is that it’s a strong allergen. You must be double conscious about this matter if you are allergic to any nuts. Sesame may lead to a mild allergy or a very sever one, which can even lead to anaphylaxis.
Pregnant women should also be careful as sesame oil might have some influence on hormones or it can lead to uterine contractions. Apart from the above mentioned cases, sesame oil is considered to be a safe ingredient.
It even appears in the International Journal of Toxicology as a safe compound of cosmetics. However, when you use it for the first time, try it on a small area of your skin to check if it doesn’t cause any irritation to you.
When consumed, it’s also worth mentioning that it should be used in small amounts as it’s an extremely rich source of omega-6 levels, which if used in larger amounts, are not beneficial for our organism.
Some people also feel a little bit worse at the beginning of the sesame oil therapy. It usually stops after a few weeks, but for your own safety it’s always better to consult the symptoms with your doctor.
