Black Cumin seeds have been used throughout history in the Middle East, the Mediterranean and India to keep people in good health for over 3,300 years.
Practitioners of Ayurveda and Chinese Traditional Medicine have also, for thousands of years, used Black Cumin seeds to treat an extensive list of mild to extreme health conditions.
Black Cumin Seed Oil comes from the Nigella Sativa plant and is known to carry several common names including Kalonji, Black Coriander and simply Black Seed Oil, which can often be confusing.
The thin, angular, black, crescent-shaped seeds look as though they are directly related to onion seeds and black poppy because of their colour and similar fruit capsule. The plant also resembles common or Indian cumin and has been mistaken for Caraway, Fennel and Coriander because of its leaf shape. Botanically, however, black cumin is a member of the buttercup family, Ranunculus, and is unrelated to these plants.
Known in the Middle East as 'The Seed of Blessing' Black Cumin has been regarded as one of the most powerful anti-inflammatory herbs ever to exist.
In recent years, the oil has been put to the test with hundreds of studies to confirm its long list of reported health benefits and support its bold claim of being the most effective "all-in-one" health food in existence.
