How do you use mustard oil on your skin?
There are two ways to purchase mustard oil. You can purchase mustard oil as an essential oil, or it can be purchased in a bottle similar to that of olive oil. Depending on the kind you purchase, you will use it differently.
Using mustard oil as an essential oil
If you are using essential oil, you will need to dilute the oil first. It is ideal to use grapeseed oil for this, although sesame oil can be used as well. Sesame oil is also better to use on your face if you have oily skin. You will mix ¼ cup of your choice of oil with 10 drops of mustard essential oil. You then massage this mixture on any skin you want to use it on. Cover the area with a towel if it is
not on your face. Apply a heating pad on medium heat to the area for twenty minutes, then use a mild astringent on a cotton ball to remove the excess oil. If the oil is on your face, dip a clean towel on hot water and hold it on your face for twenty minutes, then wipe the excess oil off.
Using regular mustard oil
If you purchase regular mustard oil, you can simply apply it to your skin, wait a few minutes, and then remove the excess oil. You also can create a mask for your face using one teaspoon of curd, a few drops of lemon juice, mustard oil, and enough besan or gram flour to make the mixture pasty.
Use this mask for 10-15 minutes three days a week to see great skin tightening results as well as improved pigmentation.
No matter how you use mustard oil, you are sure to see some amazing results as your skin gets tighter and younger looking!
