Black Seed Oil, also known as Nigella Sativa, has been around for a very long time and has numerous health benefits according to various studies over the years. Now, you might be wondering things like, what exactly is it? What makes it so special? How is it different from other oils? And how does one consume it? These are all great questions, and we've received these types of questions quite a bit since we started selling them. I am going to create a list below of some of the basic information you need to know about black seed oil, in order to create a better understanding of our product.


  1. The seeds originate from a plant called Nigella Sativa, also known as black cumin. The plant is located in southwest Asia. Other names include black caraway, kalonji, and black onion seed.

  2. The earliest findings of the seeds were found tombs of ancient Egyptians as well as ancient civilizations in present day Turkey dating back to the second millennium.

  3. Due to its sensitivity to soil and climate, black seed oil is produced only in areas like the Middle East, Turkey, Pakistan, and India to name a few. Our oil that is imported from India.

Health Benefits

  2. Helps boost your immune system

  3. Eases pain when applied topically

  4. Helps treat ulcers and indigestion

  5. It is believed that Ibn Sina recommended black seed to treat things like headaches, toothaches and certain skin conditions


  1. Can be taken orally, with a spoon. Our general recommendation is half a teaspoon to one teaspoon a day

  2. Can be applied topically to ease joint pain

  3. If the taste is too strong, the oil can be mixed in with food. One consumer added a few drops of it on the cheese in her cheese and pita bread sandwich. Other food applications include adding a drops on bread, like naan, or in curries and stir-fries.

One of the best recommendations for the consumption of black seed oil is mixing it with honey. I've tried this myself. Mixing an equal amount of honey and oil can make the taste of the combination more palatable than taking the black seed oil on its own.
