Black Cumin Seed Oil for Strong, Robust Looking Skin

Black Cumin

Essential fatty acids. Vitamins. Amino Acids. Flavonoids. Black cumin seed oil has them all. Together, these components make the oil a great moisturizer, anti-aging ingredient, and more, but you can think of it like you’re secret for strong, healthy skin.

Black cumin seed reinforces skin’s health and vibrancy with anti-aging effects.

A Little More About This Ingredient

Black cumin seeds come from a plant scientifically called Nigella sativa, and also referred to as fennel flower, nutmeg flower, and Roman coriander. An annual flowering plant, it’s native to south and southwest Asia, growing from about 8-12 inches tall. Flowers have 5-10 feathery petals and are usually pale blue and white. Balloon-like pods hold the seeds. These open in the shape of a five-pointed star, and over time, the seeds change from a pale color to black as they dry and mature.

Internal Health Benefits of Black Cumin Seed Oil

Traditionally, black cumin was used to stimulate energy and treat a variety of ailments, including liver and digestive complaints, jaundice, headaches, nasal congestion, and to remove intestinal parasites.

More recent research has found that black cumin seed extract may help to boost the immune system, tame allergies, and ease digestive complaints. Some research has also suggested they may help to lower blood sugar levels, potentially preventing or helping to control diabetes.

The seeds are high in fiber, along with beta-carotene, calcium, iron, and potassium, and can be used to make a hot tea, to add to coffee, or to grind up and sprinkle on salads, casseroles, bread, and stir-fry dishes.

Benefits to the Skin

Black cumin has many benefits when you apply the oil topically. The one that really sticks out as being different from many other plant ingredients is the oil’s powerful ability to restore the look and vibrancy of your skin.

  • Nourishes: Black cumin provides vitamins A, B, and C, along with minerals like calcium, potassium, magnesium, and zinc, giving skin what it needs to be healthy.
  • Reduces oily skin and clogged pores: This oil has a reputation as helping to help with oily skin. If you’re struggling with too much oil and clogged pores, you need to try this oil.

    After reading about all the benefits of Black Cumin Seed Oil I decided to try it.
    My mother who is 92 was scheduled for a colonic. I was giving her everything I knew to help her bowels to move, but to no avail. Since the oil is good for everything I gave her two spoons of it in one day, the next day her intestines started to work. I was absolutely amazed ! I was also a bit constipated, and had similar results. I continued to take the oil and apply it on my skin together with coconut oil. My skin started to improve right away. This oil was the best thing I found. I only wish it tasted better, but I ignore the taste, because the benefits are worth it It really feels good to see my skin looking so much better..I clearly am amazed that all these years I never heard about it.
    I live in Ontario, although I can find it here in the Health Food stores, even with the high US/Can exchange it’s still cheaper to buy it on line.

    You have wrongly said that prophet Muhammad said in the old testament. This was the book given to prophet Moses. Prophet Muhammad was given the final Scripture from God the Quran. The prophet did say that the black cumin cures all diseases except death.

    Hi, this seems like an old discussion but in case anyone else is looking I just found a great price for Organic pure cold pressed Black Cumin Seed oil, much cheaper then the other links I found on here too! I will be ordering it along with other oils for the first time so can’t comment on the quality yet but looks like a great site.
