Black Seed oil has a long and interesting history. It is said by some to be “Cleopatra’s beauty secret.” The Prophet Mohammad (s) stated in his “Hadith” that black seed oil cures every illness except death. Black seed was even found in Egyptian Pharoah Tutankhamen’s tomb. Black Seeds are extremely beneficial as a food in many aspects of health, both healing and preventative. Asthma, allergy sufferers and people with autoimmune disorders are said to benefit greatly from the over 100 chemical constituents contained in this amazing seed.

Dark in color with an herbal scent, black cumin oil, also called black seed oil,  is a specialty oil that is popular in preparations for acne, burns and wrinkles. It has also become popular as a hair oil when mixed with other carrier oils like coconut oil, aloe vera oil and castor oil. Adding rosemary essential oil to your mixture can make your hair shiny and clear your scalp of dandruff.

More than 200 university studies conducted since 1959 have confirmed many traditional uses of this powerful seed; anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-histamine properties among them. It is a rich source of essential fatty acids – omega 3 and omega 6, the building blocks of cells and commonly is used for relief of acne, psoriasis, eczema and pain. This amazing oil is often used in joint massage and for the relief of headaches.
