Product Description

Latin Name: Nigella sativa

Country: Egypt

Method of Extraction: CO2 extraction

Status: Organic

The world of essential oils, CO2 extracts, and absolutes is strongly supported by a variety of important fixed or carrier oils which not only act as natural diluents for the highly concentrated aromatics but have their own unique cosmetic and/or therapeutic value. There is some confusion about the Nigella sativa fixed or carrier oil and the Nigella sativa essential oil. The true essential oil which contains 18% thymoquione is extremely rare and generally not available on the market. There is some cold pressed Black Cumin available that we consider a carrier oil. This CO2 extraction contains about 1% thymoquione, which is the active compound and we consider this closer to a fixed/carrier oil than an essential oil. It is certainly more potent than any cold pressed Black Cumin we have carried. Our research seem to point to Black Cumin being used externally for skin conditions. These highly concentrated extracts are different in nature from the CO2 extracted essential oils found in the Essential Oil section. They are extremely effective in healing and regenerative skin care. They can be added in very small dilutions to skin care crèmes, oils, healing balms and ointments. Consider them superchargers to your skin care. They are generally added to a base oil or crème at a percentage of 0.5 - 1%.

Some CO2 extracts are viscous and do not drop from the orifice reducer in a bottle. Pop your bottle into a ziploc bag and warm in a cup of hot water. Remove the dropper and pour a small amount into the cap and drop from there. Pipettes are very handy when working with these extracts.
