BLACK SEED OIL - Organic & Cold Pressed - 50ml

“There is healing in black seed oil for all diseases except death”. The Prophet Muhammed already knew this very well more than 1300 years ago. In India and the Middle East, the use of black seed oil is an ancient tradition. There, it has been used for centuries to strengthen and give energy to the whole body. Recently, the benefits of black seed oil are becoming more popular in the West, and it is now being used more and more often as a natural and less side-effect intense alternative to pharmaceuticals. 
Black seed oil is made by pressing seeds of the fennel flower or nigella sativa (not to be confused with the seeds of the bunium bulbocastanum plant, which can also be referred to as black cumin). Ideally, black seed oil is cold-pressed, as many of the chemical constituents are sensitive to heat. 
Black seed oil contains:

  • Thymoquinone is the main bioactive constituent of black seed oil and has powerful pain-relieving, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer effects. 
  • Linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid which the human body cannot synthesize on its own, and must therefore be ingested. 
  • Other fatty acids like oleic acid and palmitic acid which are reported to have rejuvenating effects on hair and skin as well as boost the immune system and reduce inflammation. 
  • Vitamins A, B, and C, as well as minerals like zinc, calcium and potassium, iron, magnesium, and selenium nourish your body and promote overall health.

Benefits of Black Seed oil inSkincare

It helps to fight acne. Skin that overproduces oil is more susceptible to acne breakouts since excess oil collects in pores. The essential fatty acids in black cumin seed oil help to flush out this oil. It does this by creating healthy skin cells that work to dissolve fat deposits in pores.
It minimizes the signs of aging. With its moisture-retaining qualities and antioxidant properties, black cumin seed oil keeps skin elastic and fights damaging free radicals that cause wrinkles and fine lines.
It tames redness and soothes irritation. Black cumin seed oil has excellent anti-inflammatory properties. This is especially helpful for those experiencing irritation from psoriasis or eczema as Black cumin seed oil reduces inflammation and boosts healthy immune function. It also is a strong astringent that can fight topical infections.
It fades dark spots. Together, Vitamin A, amino acids, and fatty acids found in black cumin seed oil work together to regenerate skin cells. Over time, black cumin seed oil will fade age spots and even some scars.

Black seed oil for muscle & joint pain

In many diseases both acute and chronic it is inflammation that causes damage to tissues. Black seed oil and oil extracts have demonstrated a range of anti inflammatory effects. Black seed oil contains anti-inflammatory agents that are a great alternative to painkillers, ibuprofen, narcotics, and opiates.
Alongside the various ingredients found in black seed oil, the phytochemical compound thymoquinone is prominent in its healing capacities. Thymoquinone is a chief bioactive constituent of Black seed oil which holds promising pharmacological properties against several diseases. It exhibits outstanding antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anticancer, and other important biological activities.

A 24-hour skin patch test should still be carried out to be sure that it will suit your skin because it is possible to have an allergy even to natural ingredients. Just rub a very small amount of cream behind one ear and leave for 24 hours; if there is no reaction, the cream is suitable for you.
