Black Seed: Nature's Benadryl

Black Seed Oil (Nigella Sativa) has been used in the Middle East for centuries. With its first use being noted in ancient Egypt and mentioned in the Hebrew Scriptures (Book of Isaiah), the plant has been used to treat a variety of ailments. Used in herb or pressed oil form, Black Seed is used to successfully treat conditions such as asthma* and other respiratory health issues; stomach and intestinal system; kidney and liver functions; circulatory and immune system support.

The plant is a natural anti-histamine and can also be used for skin conditions and a wide array of infections. Highly celebrated in the Islamic tradition as a means for curing all things but death, the herb has yet to be fully embraced by Western medicine.

You may purchase Black Seed Oil in traditional Muslim markets as well as online. FYI: you're going to be seeing a lot of the herb in the future as Western pharmaceutical companies catch wind of this amazing healing plant.
