Organic black cumin oil is derived from the Nigella sativa plant, an annual flowering plant that is cultivated in large parts of Europe, Asia and Africa. Our 100% organic black cumin oil has a distinct peppery-herbal taste and it is slightly spicy with notes of cumin. The colour of the oil ranges from a yellowish shade to greenish-brown tint. Organic black cumin oil contains high levels of linoleic acid as well as medium levels of oleic acid and palmitic acid.
The organic oil is extracted by the black seeds via a gentle mechanical cold-pressing process. Organic nigella sativa oil is a popular dietary supplement. Food producers also utilise it as an oil for cooking as well as in salad dressings. Thanks to its supposed antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, cosmetics manufacturers have also been increasingly utilising black cumin oil in natural skincare products and soaps in recent years.
