Written by Kajsa IngelssonJanuary 5, 2018

This oil is one of my all-time favorites! Black Cumin seed oil a.k.a “Black Seed oil” has been used as an all-purpose healthy oil forever now. It’s said that this was one of the oils that Cleopatra used in her daily routine and that Hippocrates used it as digestive aid.. I cannot live without it and use the oil to clean my face and the essential oil as a spot treatment 🙂

This oil is also a potent discomfort and soreness soother, packed with antioxidants and prized for free radical-scavenging properties. Black cumin seed oil supports healthy cells, promotes skin health, supports healthy blood sugar already in the normal range and supports a healthy weight and immune system. Additionally, it supports a healthy respiratory system, healthy digestion, and healthy hair.

Prepare to be astonished by these wonderful properties of cumin essential oil:

Kills Bacteria

Cumin essential oil is a good bactericide that can be used in the treatment of diarrhea and cholera, which are caused by bacteria. Furthermore, it can cure internal bacterial infections like those in the colon, stomach, intestines and urinary tract, as well as external infections on the skin, ears, eyes, and in wounds.

Removes Flatulence

Cumin oil has strong carminative properties and effectively drives away gases from the intestines. It also prevents any further formation of gases. No more bloating!!

Aids in Digestion

Cumin oil aids in digestion, but should be taken in low doses. High doses can do the exact reverse and can also make you vomit. The oil also promotes the discharge of bile and gastric juices and stimulates peristaltic motion of the intestines. Its smell acts as an appetizer to stimulate your appetite.

Promotes Urination

Cumin Oil increases urination, both in frequency and in quantity. This may sound not that important, but it can be very beneficial for health. Along with urine, fats are lost from the body, up to 4% of the volume of urine. Therefore, it is obvious that the more you urinate, the more fat you lose.

Urination also promotes digestion and keeps gas from forming. It removes excess water from the body and reduces swelling. Its biggest contribution is that it helps to remove toxins from the body. What’s more, it also reduces blood pressure. That is the reason that most drugs for lowering blood pressure induce frequent urination. Urination also helps to clean out the kidneys.

Heals Wounds

The antiseptic properties of Cumin oil do not let the external and internal cuts and wounds become septic.

Treats Spasms

This oil has very effective anti-spasmodic properties. It can be used in treatment for nearly all sorts of spasms and associated troubles such as cramps, convulsions, non-stop coughs, pains, and cramps.

Detoxifies the body

Cumin oil is an efficient detoxifier. It removes toxins, including those which are produced by the body, such as some excess hormones and metabolic byproducts, as well as those which get into the bloodstream through food, such as uric acid, insecticides, synthetic colors, and fertilizers. It promotes sweating and urination, thereby removing the toxins with them.

Regulates Menstruation

Cumin oil can help maintain a regular menstruation cycle and can open obstructed menses. It also helps in recovering from Post Menopause Syndromes.

Cures Anxiety

Cumin oil is good for the nerves and helps to cure nervous disorders such as convulsions, anxiety, and stress.

Acts as a Tonic

Cumin oil tones up muscles, tissues, and skin, as well as the various systems functioning inside the body, such as the respiratory, circulatory, nervous, digestive, and excretory systems. This tonic effect helps to retain your youth for a long.

Start including this oil in your life today and your body and mind will thank you for many years to come!
