Product Overview

Our organic Black Cumin CO2 is a USDA, NOP certified organic fatty carrier oil extracted from the seeds of Nigella sativa; this highly nourishing oil contains dozens of skin-loving constituents, including an impressive amount of antioxidants and a high content of essential fatty acids (Omega-3, -6, and -9).[1] Emollient and fortifying, it is used as part of a carrier oil blend to benefit the skin in a multitude of applications.[2],[3]  Note: contains 0.1% of organic Rosemary Antioxidant CO2 to help maintain freshness.

This unrefined, filtered CO2 Total extract contains approximately 5.1% essential oil that is naturally-occurring in these aromatic seeds. Thymoquinone, an important constituent of Black Cumin oil, has a wide spectrum of favorable effects. Responding to customer demand, our supplier has been able to nearly triple thymoquinone content by increasing density and quality of seed.[4] Black Cumin oil’s many uses have earned Nigella the Arabic title of respect - Habbatul barakah - meaning the 'seed of blessing'.[5]

Please note that the low temperature CO2 extraction process (up to 104˚F/40˚C) for carrier oils ensures a product that more closely resembles that which is found in the raw plant material and has a longer shelf life than cold processed carrier oils.[6] In addition, CO2 carrier oils meet strict heavy metal requirements and contain no carbohydrates, protein, or inorganic salts.[7]

Our organic Black Cumin CO2 contains 0.1% of organic Rosemary Antioxidant CO2 to help maintain freshness.

Excellent carrier oil.

nice

I can't remember what I expected when I ordered this oil. Maybe I envisioned something mild and unobtrusive like poppy seeds from a bagel. I was wrong. This oil has a very dense peppery character. Blends beautifully. Just be prepared. This one aint no wall flower. = )

Hazmat Shipping 101

Have you ever wondered why you might see the term “Restricted” next to some of the oils in your cart? Although it may look scary, it has to do with the Hazmat category under which they are classified to keep your oils safe during shipment.
