Ancient Indian medical system perceives sesame oil to pacify stress related symptoms and on-going research indicates that the rich presence of anti-oxidants and poly-unsaturated fats in sesame oil could help in controlling blood pressure. sesame was cultivated during the Indus valley civilization and was the main oil crop. It was probably exported to Mesopotamia around 2500 BCE and was known in
Akkadian and Sumerian as „ellu‟. Sesame seeds were one of the first crops processed for oil as well as one of the earliest condiments.
