Black Seed Oil: Black seed extract, which is also known as Nigella sativa oil or black cumin seed oil is recommended by different religions and ancient cultures.  Christians described black seeds in the Holy Bible as the healing “black cumin."  Muslims call the black seeds blessed seeds and believe it will heal any illness. It also goes back to the very ancient times of history. It was used by the ancient Egyptian pharaohs, the Queens Cleopatra and Nefertiti, as well as the Romans. Black seed oil is thought to naturally restore hair growth in thinning areas thanks to its high concentration of thymoquinone, a powerful antihistamine,  prescribed to alopecia patients to help regrow hair, for the scalp to reduce inflammation, to stimulate hair growth and reduce flakiness, and to simply make hair healthy, soft, hydrated and shiny with consistent use.
