Product FAQs

1. What is cumin black seed oil used for?
Black Cumin Seed Carrier Oil is rich in Linolenic Acid (Omega-6) and Linoleic Acid (Omega-3), making it an effective emollient when used in place of a carrier oil in skin care and hair care formulations. Black Cumin Seed Oil is suitable for use on acne-prone, dry, sensitive, and mature skin types, and is safe enough to apply directly onto the skin. Use Black Cumin Seed Carrier Oil alone or blended with your favorite Essential Oils. To enhance your existing skin care products, add up to 2 drops of Black Cumin Seed Carrier Oil to a moisturizer and apply it to clean skin for a radiant appearance. To support hair and scalp health, massage Black Cumin Seed Oil into the scalp, and apply it to the mid sections to the ends of the hair for a healthy sheen.

2. Is black cumin seed oil an essential oil?
No. It is a carrier oil.

Color: Light amber.

Aromatic Description: Black Cumin Seed Oil has a somewhat nutty, bitter, pungent odor.

Common Uses: Also known as ‘Black Seed Oil’, Black Cumin Seed Oil has been used as an all-purpose medicinal oil for centuries in Asia and Middle Eastern countries, especially for skin problems. According to a hadith of Islam, the Prophet Mohammed said, “… the black granules (kalonji) are the remedy for all diseases except death.”

Consistency: Medium viscosity typical of vegetable carrier oils.

Absorption: Absorbs into the skin at an average speed, and leaves slight oily feeling on the skin.

Cautions: None Known.

So Excited! Of all the carrier oils, I find this to be my go-to for inflamed acne skin. After applying directly to my face as a serum, the balance on my hands I give my hair a gentle head massage. NDA has great products and prices.

WOW! Just WOW! Ordered this Black Cumin seed oil for the very first time...on a whim, after reading an article. Usually, my hands get soooo dry from constant washing, for one reason or another. I just ordered a bunch of stuff from NDA including this oil. I opened only some and been dropping a tiny dab of this in the palm of my hands and rubbing it over my hands after washing...absolutely amazing. My hands are as smooth as a baby's butt. I even noticed the texture of the skin is so much smoother and silky looking. To test it further, I decided to rub some further up my hands past my wrist...truly amazing. I am loving the effects. My skin looks supple and a ton younger. So very happy for this spontaneous purchase. Will definitely be buying again..

I ordered this product while waiting for the organic option to become available and I was not disappointed. This oil has a peppery scent which is what it should smell like. It is able to mask other (not so pleasant) oil smells and if you don't like the peppery scent you can add a drop of myrrh or bergamot to mask it. I use black seed in all of my lotions. I prefer the organic options but will happily use this one again as a back up if necessary in the future.

Absolutely love this oil. I find the scent more flowery than nutty but really pretty. Great in my dry skin butters when i don't want to add a scent.

A great carrier oil that has the most benificial topical uses. It is one of my favorites for treating inflammation of all sorts and cellulite problems. It will also provide better nutrient circulation to your hair follicle if you apply it to your scalp. There can be a slight bit of photosensitivity with this oil, so be sure to use sunscreen if you're using this product outside.

I bought this Black Cumin seed oil because it is rich in copper and selenium and so is recommended for oil blends for arthritis. Then I discovered how satiny my skin felt after use, ( it seems to give the skin a shine like burnished wood), and so I started to incorporate it into oil blends where the high GLA content of the oil ( gamma linoleic acids,) was beneficial for improving joint mobility. The odour is not unpleasant, but it does dramatically affect the fragrance of other essential oils that I added to the oil blend, tending to mask and leave a peppery odour; it even masks Labdanum! I have not tried the citrus EOs yet and that may well be a better complement to it.

I have just received my very fast shipment of Black Seed Oil, and am I a VERY HAPPY camper. This is a Miracle Oil for 100 + health problems. I am using it for my hair, which needs to get back to thick and lustrous again, with EOs for hair repair.
