Black Seed Oil- the Oil That Kills Everything but Death

March 20, 2018

I was stunned at the research that has been done on black seed oil. I use a lot of great oils in Susie Q Skin products, but black seed oil is probably one of my favorites. I like finding these unknown ingredients and bringing them to life in awesome, all-natural skin care products.

Anti-Oxidant to the Max!

Have you heard of black seed oil yet? If not, you should, and this should become a daily part of your skin care regimen.  Black seed oil is a cold processed oil from black cumin seeds. You can find it listed in ingredient decks as Nigella Sativa. The version used in all Susie Q Skin care products is always organic.

This oil is said to "kill everything but death" in some parts of the world.  Here are just a few of the documented benefits of black seed oil in your personal care products:

Anti-bacterial- Helps combat fungal and mold infections

This is such a critical component to effective natural skin care. Because our dedication is to all-natural, or as natural as possible, it is critical to have high quality ingredients that are effective at their jobs. We incporporate black seed oil in several of our products, but most importantly it is in our Acne Prone Facial Oil Serum specifically to battle bacteria on the skin.

Anti-CancerReduction in cancerous cells

Cancer is such an epidemic.  We have all been touched by someone who has either battled it themselves, or have known someone who has battled it. It affects everyone, regardless of age, gender, race, income. A lot of our ingredient selection is around creating natural skin care products that help to combat cancerous cells. Black seed oil should be part of your daily skin care routine and using products like our Rose Fig Cream or any of our facial oil serums will accomplish that.

I put black seeds in my smoothies and I use black seed oil in my skin care products (KINDNESS cream, Rose Fig Cream and Acne Prone Facial Oil Serum). My mother died of cancer over 15 years ago, so every ingredient I use is all about healing the body and reducing inflammation.

Helps repair hair loss due to powerful anti-oxidant components

At one of our shows I had a lady come up to me and tell me that she was losing her hair. She did some research and found that topical application and internal consumption of black seed oil will re-grow hair. She had a beautiful head of hair and said she rubs a black seed oil cream on her scalp every other night (the night before she washes her hair), and then takes black seed oil in a pill form every day.

Helps reduce effects of eczema and psoriasis

I get approached at every show about products that will help with the effects of eczema and psoriasis.  These are painful, annoying, self-esteem dropping skin conditions. We have several products that can help reduce the effects of both of these. Oil based cleansers like our Ink Oil and No Regrets are excellent, as they help to reduce inflammation and protect the skin from further drying. Products like our Rose Fig Cream and KINDNESS Black Seed-C Creams are ideal for individuals with eczema and psoriasis.  These are both made with high quality, natural, raw oils and butters and both contain black seed oil.

So profoundly powerful on skin issues that it even inhibits MRSA

What else is there to say about this?  MRSA is scary and everywhere. If you can use a cream every day like our KINDNESS Black Seed-C Creams and help protect you, why wouldn't you?

Anti-inflammatory- will reduce acne

Inflammation. The silent ager. Incorporating natural skin care daily that will help reduce inflammation is critical to fighting Father Time. We use black seed oil in all our facial oil serums, our Rose Fig Cream and our KINDNESS Black Seed-C Creams to help fight aging. 

Melanin support system- can help reduce dark spots, sun spots, age spots

I love the sun. I was born and raised on the east side of the mountains in Oregon where the sun shines "365 days a year". Even when it was snowing, the sun was still shining. The last 20 years I have lived on the west side of those mountains and there are substantially less days of sun. What this means, though, is that when the sun is out, I am drawn to it. I need the sun, but sun does a lot of damage to our skin. Sun damage is one of the fastest ways to age your skin. I have so many ladies that ask me about ways to help fade their sun/age spots from all their time loving the sun. Black seed oil has been tested and proven to help reduce the effects of melanin issues in skin and fade those age/sun spots. Using a product daily like our Rose Fig Cream, KINDNESS Black Seed-C Creams or Golden Anti-Aging Facial Oil Serum will help combat all that sun-loving skin damage.
