Contrary to its common name ‘Black Cumin Seed’, and often mistaken with ‘Black Sesame Seed’, the Black Seed has no connection to the Cumin or Sesame family. The Black Seed is in fact taken from the Nigella Sativa plant- a herb that originates in Western Asia and is classified as part of the Buttercup a family.
The Nigella Sativa plant usually grows to about 16-24 inches in height and has white flowers when in bloom. The deep black, sharp-cornered rectangular seeds (no longer than 3 mm) found in the flowers are the part of the plant that is used for the preparation of Black Seed products.
Black Seed Oil is derived from cold-pressing Nigella Sativa seeds. The cold-pressed method of deriving Black Seed Oil ensures that the chemical properties of the Black Seed are retained. Other methods to extract that oil involving heat, may alter or even destroy the complex properties of Black Seed.
Black Seed Oil is fast gaining momentum as the preferred method of Black Seed use, as a teaspoon of the oil is much more concentrated than a teaspoon of the seeds. As well as this, the oil of the Black Seed can be ingested as well as applied topically.
