Native to the Mediterranean and grown throughout the Middle East and parts of Asia, using Black Cumin seed (Nigella sativa) oil dates back over 3000 years for its health, healing and beauty properties.
Black cumin seed oil is rich in antioxidants containing special bioactive phytochemicals; thymol, thymoquinone, and thymohydroquinone, that are attributed to the oil’s ability to defend against viral, bacterial, fungal and parasitic infections. Its antibacterial properties are demonstrating to be beneficial in combating superbugs like MRSA or h.pylori.
Skin conditions like acne, eczema, insect bites all benefit from topical application of the seed oil. By killing the infections, the body’s natural process of inflammation is turned off, allowing the skin to heal. Also beneficial for dandruff and scalp irritations, supporting robust, healthy hair growth.
Black seed oil also contains essential fats needed for cell membrane integrity, and when consumed orally, has demonstrated to enhance immune system response, stabilize mood, decrease anxiety and improve cognition, even boost GABA production.
Hippocrates is reported to have used the oil for digestive troubles like gas, bloating and stomach pain. Practitioners today find it valuable for managing diabetes, improving cholesterol and overall heart health, fighting candida and fungal infections in the digestive system.
Black seed oil also appears to have anti-asthmatic effects and beneficial for allergic reactions. The list of benefits goes on and on. It’s no wonder black cumin seeds are referred to throughout the Middle East as the Seeds of Blessing.
