Ayurveda utilizes oils for their nourishing qualities that are moistening, protecting and penetrating. Whether oil is used externally or internally the goal is to nourish and moisten the skin or tissues. Most commonly sesame oil is the oil of choice, however coconut, castor, mustard and ghee are also very important because each has its own unique qualities and purpose.

Quality of Oils Bases on Internal Use

  • Sesame – heating, nourishing, penetrating
  • Coconut – cooling, protecting, moistening
  • Castor – heating, penetrating, eases pain
  • Mustard - heating, penetrating, reduces kapha
  • Ghee – cooling, nourishing, enhances the qualities of the herbs

Generally, oils that are heating are utilized for vata and kapha conditions and oils that are cooling are utilized for pitta conditions. Kottakkal’s five internal oils are made with sesame oil and are formulated to support, nourish and tone the muscles, bones, joints and nerves.

Additionally, weak digestion (agni) can result in ama, a sticky residue that further hinders elimination.
