It also makes a great face mask when whisked with egg and honey. Left on for 10 mins then rinsed off.

Why would toasted be recommended? Wouldn't that somehow damage the nutrients in the oil?
Sounds yummy though...

I think cold pressed sesame oil might be even more beneficial

I heard that if you put sesame oil can avoid mosquito bite.

I concur with lawmom. Cold pressed is the way to go.

Most cold pressed sesame oils are roasted anyway. Sesame oil is produced for cooking and therefore the sesame seeds are roasted prior to pressing to intensify the flavour of the seeds. Any sesame oil that smells of sesame is a roasted oil. An unroasted oil smells similar to hemp seed oil, grassy and bland it is also near colourless.

Both roasted and unroasted work well on the skin though. Roasting of the seeds occurs at a temperture below the smoke poimt of the oil which is very high.

If you are looking for a cheap cleanser for the skin, pick up a jar of tahini from the supermarket. Its ground unroasted sesame seeds, moisturising and exfoliating too as it contains the hulls. Mix a bit of honey in it, scrub and steam off.

Roasted sesame oil is excellent for spider veins, I massage it into my legs after dry brushing and it significantly reduces its appearance. I had large patches of these on my shins and they are almost gone now, in about 4 weeks.

Very interesting. I wonder if it would also work on the "broken caps" on the face?

I picked up some sesame oil to try out on my broken caps. I am having good results with a few products that really diminish the redness, but I would like to see what the sesame oil will do. I'll report back if I have any results with this.

^ Oooh, please do! And what are the products which have diminished the redness?

I have dark skin so its not so visible, but I still have a lot of broken caps around my nose.

Is roasted better for this in some way?

After an entire year of searching for things to diminish redness, I found that roman chamomile hydrosol and the Chantecaille jasmine and lily mask really reduced the redness in my skin. Just a note on the roman chamomile hydrosol - it is very drying. I was spraying my face twice a day and all of a sudden I had major dry patches. Now, I put the hydrosol on a cotton pad and hold it in place where my broken caps are for a short while. I used the jasmine and lily mask as a leave on, but it felt a little too heavy on my skin, so I use it as a mask for 10-20 minutes twice a week. My cheeks are definitely less "rosey" looking, which I am thrilled with.

(Not sure about the toasted version being better or not. I just bought regular sesame oil. Hopefully notmenotyou will come and share if one version is better than the other.)

Well, it just goes to show that just because something is "natural" doesn't mean you can't have a reaction to it! I have used the sesame oil exclusively for 2 days, and now my face is a big red irritated mess. End of this experiment for me!
