Black seed oil, aka; black cumin, onion seed, black or Greek caraway and coriander seed, all these names are applied to a tiny black seed that has been used as food and medicine for millennia. Pressed from the seeds of Nigella sativa the popular seeds make a strong and rejuvenating oil.
Native of the Middle East, black seed or Nigella oil is loaded with beneficial plant compounds and important fatty acids. As this oil is excellent for consuming as well as using topically we have bottled it in a 4 ounce bottle as well as the 15 ml sampler and one ounce dropper bottle.

There are so many benefits to this oil that we will touch on just a few as they pertain to health of the skin. But we must also pass on the folklore for this seed and oil; Mohamed is said to exclaim that "black seed cures all conditions of the body except death!"
Our organic Black seed oil is extremely strong smelling and tasting yet it is a taste that can grow on you. A spoonful added to a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice makes a perfect nutritional start to the day. Everyone in my circle loves it, even the picky ones.
For the skin it can be diluted with a milder smelling oil, however, the scent does not linger and the fatty acids in the oil absorb into the skin layers quickly.
