Mustard seeds are the small round seeds of the various mustard plants. The seeds are usually come in colored from yellowish white to black. They are an important spice in many regional foods and may come from one of three different plants: black mustard (Brassica nigra), brown Indian mustard (B. juncea), or white/yellow mustard 

This oil has a distinctive pungent taste, characteristic of all plants in the mustard family, Brassicaceae (for example, cabbage, cauliflower, turnip, radish, horseradish, or wasabi). It is often used for cooking in North India, Eastern India, Nepal, Bangladesh, and Pakistan. In Bengal, Odisha, Assam, Meghalaya, Manipur, and Nepal, it is the traditionally preferred oil for cooking. 

The characteristic pungent flavor of mustard oil is due to allyl isothiocyanate. Mustard oil has about 60% monounsaturated fatty acids (42% erucic acid and 12% oleic acid); it has about 21% polyunsaturated fats (6% omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid and 15% the omega-6 linoleic acid), and it has about 12% saturated fats.

Two studies on the health effects of mustard oil have been conducted in India, which had conflicting results. One found that mustard oil had no protective effect on the heart, and the authors reckoned that the benefits of alpha-linolenic acid were outweighed by the harm of erucic acid, while another study found that mustard oil had a protective effect, and the authors reckoned that the benefits of alpha-linolenic acid outweigh the harm of erucic acid.

The use of mustard oils in traditional societies for infant massage has been identified by one study as risking damaging skin integrity and permeability. Other studies over larger samples have shown that massaging with mustard oil improved the weight, length, and midarm and midleg circumferences as compared to infants without massage, although sesame oil is a better candidate for this than mustard oil.

It is often used for cooking in North India, Eastern India, Nepal, Bangladesh, and Pakistan. In Bengal, Odisha, Assam, Meghalaya, Manipur, and Nepal, it is the traditionally preferred oil for cooking. The oil makes up about 30% of the mustard seeds. It can be produced from black mustard (Brassica nigra), brown Indian mustard (B. juncea), and white mustard (B. hirta).

The characteristic pungent flavor of mustard oil is due to allyl isothiocyanate.

Benefits of Yellow Mustard Oil

  1. Good Source of MUFA

“Mustard oil is highly recommended for the reason that it is full of monounsaturated fatty acids. Our body needs oil in the ratio of 3:1 – three parts of polyunsaturated fatty acids and one part of saturated fatty acids. Monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA) come under polyunsaturated. Mustard oil is full of MUFA which is very essential for our health. It’s good for the heart, lightens skin, helps in hair growth, prevents premature graying of hair, etc,” says Dr. Anju Sood.

  1. Promotes Heart Health

According to a study done by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, including mustard oil in your regular diet could prove to be beneficial to your heart health. Being a rich source of MUFA, it lowers bad cholesterol in the body, thus keeping a check on blood fat levels and helping in circulation. The results also stated that the use of mustard oil, which is rich in alpha-linolenic acid, was associated with a lower IHD risk (Ischemic Heart Disease) than with the use of sunflower oil.

  1. Treats Cracked Heels and Brittle Nails

Bharti Taneja, Aesthetician, Cosmetologist and Founder-director of ALPS Beauty Academy and Group, says, “Cracked heels is a bothersome problem during monsoon and winter. You can use waste candles to say goodbye to cracked heels. Just create a mixture by heating the candle wax with an equal amount of mustard oil so that it becomes a thick mixture. Fill your cracked heels with this mixture and sleep with cotton socks to make your heels smoother.”

Dr. Deepali Bhardwaj, a Delhi-based Dermatologist says, “Mustard oil can be applied on the nails. It’s better than coconut or almond oil in terms of benefits. It has the power to lubricate the nail bed and be easily absorbed to bring about nourishment.”

  1. Protects Against Infection

Mustard oil has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties. Its external, as well as internal usage, is said to help in multiple ways to fight against infections, including digestive tract infections.

  1. Helps Blood Circulation

According to Ayurveda, using mustard oil for body massage improves blood circulation, skin texture and releases muscular tension. It also activates the sweat glands and hence helps in throwing out toxins from the body. As such, it acts as a natural cleanser.
