This potentially incredible oil is generally unheard of here in North America but it's known as the "remedy for everything except death"! It has been used for over 2000 years and goes by many names including blackseed, black caraway, black sesame, fennel flower, black oil, Baraka, fitch, Kalonji, Love in a Mist and many others. Many of its suggested uses have not been proven scientifically or they haven't been tested on humans yet.
There are claims that this oil treats muscular aches and joint pain, tension, allergies, diabetes, asthma, Alzheimers, autism, glaucoma, dementia, apathy, schizophrenia, Parkinson’s, obesity, hair loss, liver problems, eczema, headaches, high blood pressure, digestive disorders, arthritis, acne, psoriasis and dry skin. It's also said to be antibacterial, antifungal, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, immune boosting, anti-viral, pesticidal, anti-ulcer and antispasmodic. Wow, that's one hard working oil!
Even though its so potentially beneficial it should be avoided in people on blood clotting medication and those who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
I just received my bottle of oil today and am looking forward to seeing how I can incorporate it into my products!
