When you think of things that are healthy for you, the last thing that comes to mind is oil. My first introduction to black seed oil was when I decided to go natural. I have had relaxers most of my life, and one day I decided that it was time for me to reduce the amount of chemicals in my body. For African Americans, relaxers have been used as a way to “tame” our natural hair. For some of us, our coiled hair can become hard to manage, so relaxers provided an easy way to handle our hair. Once I made the decision to grow my natural hair, I chose to cut off the relaxed processed hair, which left me with a short curly Afro. Although I was proud of my new look, I immediately wanted to find products that would help grow my hair. I stumbled across black seed oil while watching YouTube and decided to try it out.
For me, using black seed oil helped my hair feel thicker and along with the other protocols I was using, grew my hair. At the time I didn’t think about using it internally. I only focused on my hair, and occasionally I would mix it with my lotion for added moisture. Only recently have I learned about using this oil as a daily supplement.
Nigella sativa, known as Black Seed Oil, comes from a small flowering plant with purple or white-tinged flowers that grows in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and western Asia. This oil dates back to the Egyptians and reportedly was found in King Tut’s tomb. It has been used as a healing agent and even for protection. When used in food, it adds flavor. Its seeds have a bitterness like oregano. Studies have shown that black seed oil may help with weight loss, skin issues such as eczema, and even lessening the effect of diabetes.
