Ayurveda oils

Oils All unrefined , cold-pressed oils are good for Vata people, especially sesame oil which has the capacity to penetrate deep into the tissues, nourishing and lubricating the body and nervous system. Used externally, coconut and sesame oils promote lustrous hair, while mustard oil is great for the skin.

For Pitta nature , olive , sunflower and coconut oils are the best, Use them in small amount as Pitta dosha is already slightly oily in nature.

For Kapha nature, use as little oil as possible.Flaxseed, almond,corn and sunflower ols are the best option available.
