Organic Nigella vegetable oil
Nigella seeds have long been consumed in Egypt and around the Mediterranean, where they originated. Nigella sativa, nicknamed black cumin, also produces vegetable oil which is very useful in cosmetics.
Whether in food or cosmetics, black cumin oil is generally diluted. It is indeed a vegetable oil that requires a little preparation. For internal use, you can mix it with olive oil or hazelnut oil in a proportion between 25 and 50%. For external use, you can make a 50/50 blend of vegetable oils.
The amber color of black cumin oil comes from the small black seeds that have been pressed to obtain a soft and thick oil. Our organic nigella oil is a pure, cold-pressed oil. A first cold pressing allows the oil to keep most of its nutritional assets intact. An essential point for its use in the kitchen but also in cosmetics!
