An oil few of us here have heard of, Organic Black Seed oil has been popular in the Middle East and the Far East for thousands of years. It is traditionally used in food and as a general wellbeing oil and is derived from the black seeds of the Nigella Sativa plant, a small plant with pale purple, blue or white flowers that grows abundantly in Eastern Europe, Western Asia and in the Middle East.

The seeds are also known as black caraway, black cumin, kalonji and black onion seeds and culinary fans may have come across them being used to flavour curries, bread and pickles in a similar way to more well-known spices like cumin and coriander.

Organic Black Seed Oil has a pleasant aroma and taste and so can be used in salad dressings, for baking and is delicious when drizzled over side dishes like roasted vegetables.

Also known as The Blessed Seed, the oil is not just good to eat and in the Middle East people add it to massage oils, homemade skin-care products and fragrances because of the benefits in traditional use.

One Nutrition Organic Black Seed Oil is a high-quality black cumin seed oil made exclusively from organic Egyptian black seed, preserved in an amber glass bottle.
