What is black seed oil?

With so many different options available to you when it comes to supplements, chances are you’ve heard about all the fantastic benefits that come from black seed oil. What people may not know, however, is its history.

The black seed oil is extracted from the seeds of Nigella sativa, a plant native to South West Asia, which is an herbaceous plant that belongs to the buttercup family and can grow up to 60cm high. With green wispy leaves and white petals with blue veins to show off, this versatile plant has been used worldwide for over 2000 years. Research suggests that it dates back to as early as the first century AD with the Greeks and Romans using it as a digestive aid.

The seeds themselves are small, black grains with an oily interior and rough outer surface. Measuring just 1-3mm long, these small grains pack a punch and have a strong peppery, bitter taste with a crunchy texture to match.

Being so popular for so long has meant it’s earned a variety of names across the world. You may hear it being called names such as:

  • Fennel flower
  • Fluffy
  • Black Caraway
  • Onion seed
  • Zwiebelsame
  • Çörekotu siyah
  • Narduszaad
