We’ve spoken at length about the many benefits that Black Seed Oil has to offer. It’s an immune system booster and an anti-inflammatory agent. Taking it can protect you against heart disease, cancer, and many of the common ailments that simply lead to you feeling unwell.
Black Seed Oil can also have a rejuvenating effect on your skin as it combats the inflammation issues that cause problems like acne and eczema. On top of that, the oil can keep your hair looking healthy and strong. It can even stimulate hair growth by repairing damaged hair follicles.
That’s all well and good. But how do you use it?
Here, we’re going to take a look at a few of the methods you can use in your daily routine to get the most out of Black Seed Oil.
Method #1 – Adding it to Your Hair/Scalp
Black Seed Oil strengthens your hair and rejuvenates struggling hair follicles. When used correctly, it can even stimulate hair regrowth.
In terms of how you use it, it’s all about managing your dosages, as you’ll see with many of these methods.
Consider using the oil after you’ve taken a shower. Allow your scalp to dry properly and then apply about a tablespoon of the oil. Rub it in carefully, ensuring that you get a good spread across your scalp. If you have a thick head of hair already, make sure that you apply the oil vigorously so that it actually reaches your scalp.
Then, leave it to do its work. The oil will absorb into your skin and get to work.
Method #2 – Using it to Combat Skin Conditions
You have several options at your disposal when using Black Seed Oil to combat skin conditions.
Many people have different levels of skin sensitivity when it comes to applying oils and creams to their skin. For minor conditions, such as general dry skin, it’s often best to dilute the oil with some coconut oil , olive oil or other mild carrier oils before applying it. This will help tone down the strength of the black seed oil (especially if you purchase our strong blackseed oil), as well as moisturising your skin.
If you prefer, you can also apply the oil directly to your skin without diluting it with carrier oils. In these cases, apply the oil topically and don’t over saturate your skin with the oil. Over-applying the oil won’t cause any damage. However, you may find that your skin can’t absorb all of the oil, which leads to waste and a greasy uncomfortable feeling.
NOTE: please don’t apply the oil to open cuts or wounds as this may cause a lot of irritation.
You also have the option of using Black Seed Oil soap. This offers one of the simpler application methods because you can use it in the same way as you use any other type of soap.
Method #3 – Adding it to Food
Black Seed Oil has a slightly pungent aroma and adds a somewhat peppery flavour to your food.
You can add it to pretty much any food you can think of. However, we find that it works best as a drizzle for salads and meats. You can also use it to add a little more flavour to a stir-fry. Some also blend it into yoghurts and smoothies, though those who aren’t keen on the taste may prefer foods that have stronger flavours that can mask the oil.
