Grow Youthful: How to Slow Your Aging and Enjoy Extraordinary Health

Ailment: Chapped lips

Remedy: Sesame oil


Sesame oil is widely used in Chinese and traditional medicine. It is warming and soothing. In ayurvedic medicine, it is the best calming oil for a disturbed vata dosha, or constitution.

Only use fresh, organic, cold pressed oil. Sesame oil is damaged by heating. The sesame oil that you buy in Asian grocery stores is toasted.

YES
I made my own cream for chapped lips and found it worked better than any other I have used. It is also perfect for dry skin on face skin and sun burn.

To make it mix 2 tablespoons of bees wax with one cup of sesame oil on low heat just warm enough to melt it. Do not boil. You can test the consistency before putting it in a glass jar by cooling a teaspoon in the refrigerator for a few minutes.
