Cold Weather, Warm Comfort

There’s a reason why cold-pressed Mustard Oil is widely used in regions that have cold winters, for example – states like Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Punjab and Uttarakhand, to name a few. The reason lies in the oil’s natural heating properties. It is a warm oil and this attribute can be very useful – and comforting – in the winter chill.  

Mustard Oil is an invaluable massage oil for cold climates. For starters, it is completely natural with no chemicals or harmful additives. Its heating action opens the pores of the skin and allows the oil to penetrate to deeper subcutaneous levels. This not only warms the body but enables it to retain the heat.

Massaging with Mustard Oil in winter is also known to improve blood circulation. This is important because the winter chill inevitably makes the circulation system sluggish. The enhanced functioning of the blood circulation system improves the efficiency of your lungs, heart and muscles. It also improves your immune system, helping you ward off common winter ailments.

This is why Mustard Oil has been used for thousands of years to provide relief from coughs, colds and congestion. A simple chest-rub with gently heated Mustard Oil is enough to ease these winter woes. All across India, there are everyday home remedies for coughs and colds that are based on Mustard Oil. For example, Mustard Oil heated with two or three cloves of garlic can protect you from coughs and colds by rubbing the mixture on the chest and the soles of the feet. Moreover, this remedy is so safe that mothers use it to protect babies from winter ailments by rubbing the oil on the babies’ chest, palms, soles, back and neck.

This simple oil massage also has an added benefit: cold-pressed Mustard Oil is a natural and highly effective moisturizer. Winter is a time of dry skin and itchy, flaky scalps. All this discomfiture can be eliminated by using Mustard Oil for body and scalp massages.

Stay warm and healthy all through the cold winter – with this simple home remedy that has been tried, tested and trusted for thousands of years. Bask in the gentle warmth and soothing comfort of Mustard Oil.
