DESCRIPTION

Black cumin is one the most revered medicinal seeds in history. The best seeds come from Egypt where they grow under almost perfect conditions in oases where they are watered until the seed pods form. Black cumin seeds were found in the tomb of Tutankhamun. Though black cumin seeds are mentioned in the Bible as well as in the words of the Prophet Mohammed, they were not carefully researched until about forty years ago. Since this time, more than 200 studies have been conducted in universities.


Black cumin has long been taken internally to help improve the condition of hair, skin and nails.  We now know that we can get a number of the same benefits by applying the oil topically.  The one that is different from other plant ingredients is the oils powerful ability to restore the natural health and vitality of skin.  Black cumin provides vitamins A, B and C, along with minerals like calcium, potassium, magnesium, and zinc giving skin what it needs to recover and repair itself.  Like many oils, black cumin seed oil is rich in essential fatty acids that provide deep, lasting moisture for skin.  These fatty acids also help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
