Haji Mohammad Bashir Oil Shop

Top choice Health & Wellness

in Mumbai (Bombay)

Worth a visit as much for the spectacle if not to buy, this near-century-old traditional oil shop still hand-presses its medicinal, cooking and massage oils (often to order) with a sesame wood and metal press. The menu reaches long and wide (turmeric, avocado, sandalwood, neem, tulsi, almond, jojoba, cardamom – the list goes on and on, priced per kilo from ₹400 to ₹25,000).

It's attached to the lovely Hamidiyah Masjid (mosque).
