BLACK SEED OIL:
HISTORY AND USES
Black seed oil is extracted from the seeds of black cumin or Nigella sativa,
a spice that is native to South West Asia and cultivated and naturalized in
Europe and North Africa. The black cumin herb goes by many names —
Panacea, which means “cure all” in Old Latin, and Habbah Sawda or
Habbat el Baraka, which means “seeds of blessing” in Arabic.
In modern medicine, black seed oil’s popularity has not ebbed. The key
component that is responsible for its stellar reputation as the bringer of
good health is thymoquinone, a phytochemical with potent antioxidant
and anti-inflammatory properties.
