Nigella sativa or Black Cumin seeds, which are also known as Black Caraway or Black Onion seeds, are used in Eastern European and Indian cuisines, and have been used to spice up Jewish rye bread and flatbreads, and certain savory pastries and cheeses. And when the seeds are pressed into an oil like this, it retains that spicy, somewhat sharp flavour and has a fragrant scent, which can be a great part of many curry dishes, or can be used in lieu of olive oil to drizzle on cold salads or cooked vegetables. It can also be used as a beauty product: it makes an excellent moisturizer for skin and hair.
In addition to having culinary and topical uses, Black Cumin Seed Oil has been credited with being a harmonizing influence to address many common ailments when ingested.
Some of the purported health benefits of consuming it include:
* Calming colic symptoms
* Combating earache
* Helping decrease nervous tension
* Helping eliminate sinusitis
* Helping fight off bacterial infections, colds and flus
* Helping get rid of intestinal parasites and stomach problems such as diarrhoea
* Helping get rid of headaches
* Helping give energy and counter lethargy

Shake bottle before use. Store at room temperature. It may become cloudy at lower temperatures; this is normal, as is sediment settling to the bottom.
For topical use, some suggest applying it to your clean face at night, to use as a nourishing moisturizer; or applying it to your scalp the ends of your hair for a few minutes just before showering, to boost its shine.
For internal use other than as a food, related products advise taking about a teaspoon (5 ml) a day.
