Nigella Sativa kopen


Nigella sativa is the Latin name for nutmeg flower or black cumin. The latter name is somewhat misleading, because it has nothing to do with the common cumin that we know well in the Netherlands. Nigella Sativa is an annual plant with special light blue flowers. Its origins lie in the Middle East, where its use dates back thousands of years. But over time, black cumin has spread widely throughout the world.

The plant is still often grown in Syria, Turkey and Egypt because of the warm climate. Egypt in particular is famous for excellent quality. The Nigella sativa seeds can be roasted and eaten or used to extract oil.


The seeds not only have a culinary application, they are also used to make Nigella Sativa oil. High-quality Nigella Sativa oil is obtained by cold pressing. That means no heat or chemicals. The oil that is used is dark yellow, light brown in color and has a very specific, spicy, slightly bitter taste. The oil is mainly used as a dietary supplement, but can also be used in salads or dishes. The reason the oil is so popular is because it consists of more than 80% unsaturated fatty acids and more than 50% polyunsaturated fatty acids. One of the most important components is linoleic acid, a polyunsaturated omega-6 fatty acid, to which many good properties are attributed. The second is oleic acid, a monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acid, the main component in olive oil.


Nigella Sativa is a powerful oil rich in unsaturated fatty acids and antioxidants. This means it can help against dry skin, support the skin's natural recovery and help cleanse the skin. The oil is very helpful, especially in a troubled house. For example, use it in pure form, or mixed with another oil (such as castor oil ) in the Oil Cleansing Method (OCM). But you can also use it in your favorite mask recipe. Nigella Sativa oil offers endless possibilities to keep your skin looking flawless, young and radiant.


If you have ever eaten Turkish brittle, chances are you have seen them: the recognizable black seeds. It is the roasted version of the nigella sativa seeds, which are used as a garnish or for its nutmeg-like flavor. Also in Egypt or India, snacks, breads or meat dishes are decorated or flavored with the small black cumin seeds. The taste is described by some as a combination of onions, black pepper and oregano. A taste that you immediately recognize!


If you want to buy high-quality nigella sativa oil, you should pay attention to a number of things. The most important thing is of course that it is 100% pure nigella sativa oil. In addition, it is important that you buy oil that has been cold pressed. This keeps the nutrients intact and gives you the most benefit. Finally, the origin is also important. The best quality can still be found in Egypt, where it has been grown and cultivated for generations. Do you have any doubts about this? Please feel free to request the documentation from the supplier, so that you know what you are buying and that the quality is guaranteed.
