Black Seed Oil:
The Antioxidant Rich Organic Oil for Skin!
Nigella sativa, or more commonly-known as black cumin or black caraway is a native plant to parts of Asia and the plant features pretty, pale & blue delicate petals with a fruit that bears seeds similar to that of cumin- making it a viable replacement for the spice. In fact, n. sativa seeds are utilized in Indian & Middle Eastern cuisines but it has been discovered that it’s been used since ancient Egyptian times. What makes this oil so special? It’s high in several different types of trans, saturated, & fatty acids- in addition to its high content of antioxidants and thymoquinone, which is an essential oil known for its anti-inflammatory effects. This aids in naturally moisturizing the skin while also providing anti-aging benefits such as the reduction of fine lines & wrinkles- plus, this awesome oil helps in reducing scaring, sun spots, and other discoloration.
