Black Seed Oil
The most celebrated healing herb of all time
For thousands of years, Black cumin seed has been used for a variety of medical conditions including high-blood pressure, infections, indigestion, liver-disease and more.
Black seed oil was found in the Tombs of Egyptian Pharaohs who were buried with their most previous belongings. We can find black seed mentioned in the Old Testament. It also was highly promoted in early Islamic culture, where it was seen as a cure all herb.
From these sources we can see that, for thousands of years
Black cumin seed was recognised as a remarkable healing substance. In fact, black cumin seed was so prized in ancient cultures that it was described as “the blessed seed” and was said to “cure everything but death”.
These claims may sound quite wild, especially in today’s rational world where we no longer have to take the word of Pharos or religious authorities.
However, in the case of black cumin seed, modern science is starting to confirm what the ancients knew about this miraculous substance. Research has discovered a staggering number of potential benefits in many different areas of health.

BENEFITS OF BLACK SEED OIL
Black seed oil is high in antioxidants and has a huge range of benefits for health. These include the treatment of asthma and various skin conditions, lowering blood sugar and cholesterol levels, aiding in weight loss, and protecting brain health.
It also shows strong antifungal activity against Candida albicans — yeast that can overgrow in the body and lead to candidiasis.
Black seed oil is also thought to have anticancer properties. It may help fight against skin cancers when applied topically
BLACK SEED OIL & DNA
The nutritional content goes some way to explaining why there are so many apparent health benefits. However, what is truly incredible about black seed oil is that it works cellular level, reprogramming DNA. While many supplements and medications act at a cellular level, compounds in black seed oil work with our genetic code to bring about health benefits. Science is only just beginning to understand how this happens.
We know that TQ (one of the active ingredients in black seed oil) modifies the DNA of cancer cells, causing them to self-destruct but leaving normal cells unaffected. For this reason it is currently being investigated as an alternative to chemotherapy.
We are only just beginning to understand the inner workings of TQ, but research shows it works with a biological system that protects our DNA, known as telomeres. Telomeres protect the chromosomes (where the genetic material is stored).
Here is a simple analogy: think of the chromosome as a shoe-lace, the telomere is like the plastic tip which prevents it from fraying. If DNA gets damaged, cells do not know how to function correctly and all kinds of problems can occur, so telomeres have a very important function.
Telomeres have been the subject of enormous research interest since they play a role in aging and many diseases. Shortened telomeres are associated with heart problems, inflammation, diabetes, cancer and numerous other conditions. Abnormally long telomeres are also associated with health problems, so it seems that telomere balance is essential for health.
An enzyme named telomerase is responsible for regulating the telomeres. The TQ found in black seed oil appears to work closely with this enzyme. In fact, it has been shown to have the exact opposite effect as poisons like arsenic which interfere with telomeres. The science is still in its early stages, but perhaps this DNA-level understanding is shedding some light on the “cure’s everything but death” phrase traditionally associated with black cumin seed.
Pollution, chemicals found in modern food and medicine, and even the stress of modern living have been shown to be associated with shortened telomeres and DNA damage. For this reason, it is extremely important we study substances like black cumin seed to find out if they can help protect us
What makes us unique?
We supply premium & organic black cumin seed in a 100% pure oil form, since this way the active ingredients are greatly concentrated. We have been delighted to hear the about the positive results our customers have had – testimonials can be found below.
What makes our black seed oil special? We want our customers to experience the full benefits of this wonderful oil, so we take great care with our sourcing and production methods.
Many producers use cost-cutting mass production techniques, and use the cheapest seeds they can obtain, resulting in an inferior product which is often diluted with sunflower oil. Our black seed oil is 100% pure. We only source black cumin seeds from selected farms in Ethiopia which have the perfect, fertile soil for this crop. Our farmers use organic, traditional methods and have several generations worth of experience. Our seeds are cold-pressed into oil shortly after harvest, so the active ingredients are retained.
Our black seed oil was selling out faster than we could produce it, so we had to expand our production. However, we did this simply by engaging more local farmers and without comprising any of our high standards. As we continue to expand, we will ensure our traditional production methods are retained.
As a result of this, our Black Seed oil has a very high percentage (up to 4.3%) of the most important active ingredient, Thymoquinone. Our product has been tested in UK laboratories in order to comply with government standards.
Miron Glass: The Ancient Egyptian Way
Something as precious as black seed oil should be stored correctly, and for this reason our bottles are made from a dark glass that prevents the harmful effects of the light and heat. In fact, this is in keeping with traditional storage methods – the ancient Egyptians would store black seed oil and other prized substances in vessels made from violet glass. Violet glass blocks most visible light which can damage the active ingredients in. UV and Infrared pass through it, and these are actually thought to have a positive impact. The company who produces the “Miron” Glass we use has carried out extensive research and found significant benefits compared to standard amber, black or clear glasses.
