Black Seed oil has over 3000 years history of use. Nigella originated in the Mediterranean and quickly spread to Asia and Africa. Many traditional systems of medicine recommended use of Black Seed oil and seed for numerous health benefits. Black seed oil was also found in Tutankhamun’s tomb indicating its highly priced status in Egyptian culture.
Blue Lily Organics Black Seed oil is extracted from Certified Organic Black Seeds (Nigella sativa) by a mechanical cold press process that retains all the essential components, flavors, aroma and nutritional value. The chemical composition of the oil is diverse and contains amino acids, proteins, carbohydrates, fixed and volatile oils, alkaloids, saponins and many other compounds. However the beneficial nature of the oil has been attributed to 4 main components, viz. thymoquinone, carvacrol, tanethole and 4-terpineol, which demonstrated respectable radical scavenging (anti-oxidant) properties.
Enjoy it as a supplement, in your culinary creations or as a skin conditioner.
