The fennel flower, scientifically known as Nigella Sativa, blossoms into pale blue and white feathery petals. Pods within this flower open up into a lovely 5-pointed star, revealing pale-colored seeds that, over time, turn black as they mature. These seeds are then extracted for their potent oil, also known as black seed oil. Cleopatra was said to use this oil on her skin and hair, contributing to her magnificent beauty.
Black Oil For the Skin:
Fights acne, controls oil production, reduces clogged pores: Black seed oil is high in zinc, which is a well known mineral that fights acne. Antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties also make it an excellent ingredient to fight acne causing bacteria-- all super important for taking preventative action against future breakouts!
Soothes and Tones Skin: Rich in essential fatty acids, black cumin seed moisturizes while encouraging cellular renewal and reducing hyperpigmentation. Essentially, it speeds up the recovery process on your skin and reduces the appearance of scars or dark spots-- leaving your skin looking even and smooth.
Nourishes: Black cumin oil nourishes skin with essential A, B, and C vitamins and minerals like calcium. Because healthy skin = happy skin! Additionally, this oil penetrates deep into the skin to moisturize without looking or feeling greasy. Its natural moisturizing and oil controlling properties make it an excellent tool to keep your skin balanced.
