You’re a beauty oil aficionado – you have our whole line of castor oils, you’re a castor pack queen, and Rosehip Seed Oil is the last step in your skincare routine. You do a weekly Black Castor Oil hair mask, and your friends are always asking what new moisturizing must-have you have on your shelfie.
Want to kick your game up a notch? Black Seed Oil is a highly versatile addition to your self-care routine and can actually be ingested on its own or in capsules to enhance and elevate your overall wellness routine. Let’s learn a little more about this high-quality oil.
What is Black Seed Oil?
Used in folk remedies for thousands of years and known as “the seed of blessings” in both ancient and modern texts, tiny black seeds are found in the fruits of Nigella sativa – a small, flowering shrub native to Eastern Europe and southwestern Asia. When pressed, the seeds release an oil rich in unique essential fatty acids and other botanical compounds.
Is Black Seed Oil also known as Black Cumin?
Yes! Like other oils and herbs that have been used for centuries, Black Seed Oil is known by several names. One of these is “black cumin.” But don’t be confused – you may hear of another botanical with the same name: Bunium bulbocastanum. While both are used for a number of health benefits, we’re referring to the black seeds of the Nigella sativa shrub.
