Black Cumin Oil
Land Art Organic Cold-pressed Black Cumin (Nigella Sativa) oil is 100% pure with no other filler oils added. It has many benefits and health promoting properties that have been a topic of study and application throughout its long history of use. Black Cumin has been popular in Middle Eastern folk medicine as a natural remedy for various diseases for over 2000 years. Found to have been used in ancient Egypt by the Pharaohs and Cleopatra for its beautifying and health promoting benefits. They commonly used Black Cumin as a cold remedy, to reduce headaches, relieve digestive disorders, reduce inflammation and relieve allergies. To this day, Black Cumin oil is popular for its many medicinal benefits.
Black cumin oil contains the phytochemical Thymoquinone, which is the chief bioactive component within the oil. Thymoquinone has been the topic of many studies toting its potential benefits and health promoting potential. A powerful antioxidant, it helps ward off free radical damage that we encounter from daily life, toxin exposure and various metabolic processes. Free radicals within the body can create cellular damage, inflammation and premature aging, regular consumption of antioxidant rich foods and supplements can help reduce their damaging effects.
Black Cumin Oil is an effective immune system booster. This means it is helpful to those who tend to get sick often or have some immune system deficiency. It is a safe and natural supplement to help build resistance against colds and flu and helps fight infections. It also benefits the immune system by Combatting harmful invaders, including fungus, “bad” bacteria, parasites and viruses. Black cumin seed can also help reduce inflammation and symptoms associated with allergic reactions because of its powerful anti-histamine properties. I personally suffer from Allergic Rhinitis and have found symptom relief with the use of Black Cumin oil. My allergies are less bothersome, as Black Cumin Oil helps reduce my associated nasal congestion, sneezing, itchy skin and runny nose.
Black Cumin oil is also well known for supporting a healthy Digestive system. It has been shown to help relieve bloating, improve colitis, improve digestion in those with sluggish or difficult digestion and relieve and ward off intestinal spasms. It is a safe and effective supplement for promoting a healthy digestive system. It has also been found to act as a Bronchodilator, which means it helps dilates the bronchi relieving restriction to the airways and increasing airflow. Because of this effect, Black Cumin Oil may provide relief and prevent attacks in those suffering with Asthma and other restrictive respiratory issues.
Topically and Internally Black Cumin Oil can benefit the skin. Known for its anti-inflammatory effects, it can help reduce skin inflammation in those with eczema, Atopic dermatitis (skin allergic reaction), psoriasis, rosacea, skin redness and itching. It can also help relieve skin irritation and improve acne lesions and healing. Because I myself have suffered with acne since I was 15 years old, I love using Black Cumin Oil to promote clear healthy skin. I like to add this oil to homemade face masks or as a facial oil under my moisturizer.
