Mustard oil is made from mustard seeds and can be made in two ways. The fatty vegetable oil is made by pressing the seeds. The essential oil is made by grinding the seeds, mixing them with water, and extracting the resulting volatile oil by distillation. The mustard oil has a very distinct pungent aroma and flavor. It is also a great source of plant-based omega-3. It has real warming properties and in northern regions of India, the oil is not only used in cooking but also as a massage oil, treatment for muscular aches and pains, as a mosquito repellent, a hair conditioner and even as baby oil.
