Making Process

Extraction Process of Advait's Sesame Oil

Cold pressing is a form of extraction method done at room temperature and does not involve heat which can break down the natural nutrients or at times alter the composition of the oil.

1. Locally Grown

Sesame seeds are grown locally at our regenerative farm and partner farms which practice traditional and natural agriculture. This helps us monitor the quality and purity of the final product.

2. Seed Selection

Sesame is threshed manually and harvested to get high quality seeds that are graded based on their ripeness and oil content to ensure they contribute to the rich flavour and nutritional content of the oil.

3. Cleaning and Sorting

After harvesting, the seeds undergo a thorough cleaning process to remove any impurities, dirt, or debris.

4. Cold Pressing Process

The hallmark of Advait Living's sesame oil lies in the cold pressing method. Seeds are manually pressed in a traditional wooden chekku/ghani at very low rpm to obtain the oil. No toxic heat or chemical solvents are added and no external heat is applied. No chemical processing of any kind is deployed at any stage. This ensures the natural flavour and nutritional properties of the mustard oil remains intact.

5. Naturally Sedimented

Following the cold pressing, the raw and unrefined mustard oil is allowed to sediment for a couple of days. This step allows any impurities or particles to settle at the bottom.

6. Cold-filtration

After the sedimentation period, the oil undergoes a careful filtration process using a cheesecloth. This step removes any remaining particles or sediment, leaving behind a clear and pure sesame oil.

7. Packaging

The final product, now a fresh and aromatic virgin sesame oil, is elegantly packaged in glass bottles. The choice of glass ensures that the oil remains uncontaminated by external factors and retains its pristine quality until it reaches the consumer.


100% pure white sesame seeds


Glass Bottles: Our cold pressed sesame oil is elegantly housed in high-quality glass bottles whenever possible logistically. This eco-friendly packaging ensures the preservation of purity, with the added bonus of being reusable. Local customers enjoy discounts on refills, contributing to a sustainable cycle.

Note: Our 1 Ltr sesame oil is shipped in plastic bottles across India (outside of Agra and New Delhi). This is because our 1 Ltr oil bottles are made of fragile glass and have been damaged multiple times. We are looking for alternates and will shift soon to better solutions. Till then, please bear with us!

Sustainable Packaging: We're committed to sustainability. While our sesame oil orders come in plastic-free packaging for local orders, outstation orders may include plastic bottles and/or bubble wrap for efficient shipping. We encourage you to reuse or return our packaging, reinforcing our dedication to a greener, healthier planet.

The oil massage is believed to cleanse the body, relax the mind, and ward off negativity, symbolizing a fresh start. It's a ritual that signifies renewal, prosperity, and harmony, reinforcing the festive spirit of Diwali.

Is cold pressed Sesame oil beneficial for body massage? How to Use it?: Advait Living's Sesame oil (gingelly oil) is excellent for body massage. In Ayurveda, sesame oil is used as a base for many remedies. Sesame oil is believed to possess warming properties, making it ideal for pacifying Vata dosha (the energy that governs movement in the body) in Ayurveda. Ayurveda highly recommends the daily practice of ‘abhyanga’ (self-massage) and sesame oil (gingelly oil) is considered the best oil to use. Not only, does sesame oil help nourish the skin, it promotes circulation, relaxes muscles, and helps in detoxification. Regular massage with sesame oil can also improve joint flexibility, alleviate stress, and induce relaxation. It can also help improve the flow of Prana Vayu throughout the body and strengthens the body.

Simply take sesame oil in your palms and massage the oil into the skin using long, sweeping strokes on the limbs and circular motions on the joints. Leave the oil for 10-15 mins to allow the oil to penetrate the skin and provide therapeutic benefits. Follow it up with a warm shower or bath to remove any excess oil.

Is cold pressed Sesame oil beneficial for hair? How to Use it?: Advait Living's Sesame oil is excellent for hair.
It is packed with good essential fatty acid such as omega 9 and traces of omega 3 (monounsaturated fat) and omega 6 (polyunsaturated fat), that could help nourish the scalp and improve hair growth. Sesame oil also contains several minerals such as copper, iron, vitamin B-1, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese and zinc which can help restore lost nutrients to hair follicles, improve hair elasticity, and prevent hair breakage.  Sesame oil is an emollient, meaning it fills cracks and spaces in the scalp with lipids, and help soften skin and make the hair appear smoother. Its antimicrobial properties help fight off scalp infections, dandruff, and other microbial growth, promoting a healthy scalp.

Simply massage warm sesame oil into the scalp and roots of the hair. Leave the oil for 30-40 mins to allow the oil to penetrate the skin and provide therapeutic benefits. Follow it up with a warm shower and head bath to remove any excess oil.
