Nigella Sativa Oil Heart Health Benefits
Nigella Sativa supports heart health. The accompanying article to this one, entitled Food Grade Organic Nigella Sativa Oil For Heart Health explores the important role Nigella Sativa Oil is playing in incidences of myocarditis and pericarditis caused by natural and engineered spike proteins.
Any condition that ends in ‘itis’ is an inflammatory condition. Organic Nigella Sativa Oil is anti-inflammatory.
There’s a compound in Organic Nigel Sativa Oil called Thymoquinone which is known to have a protective effect on the heart. As Nigella Sativa is also able to help regulate blood cholesterol levels and lower blood pressure this precious, but inexpensive oil, is able to provide heart support in a number of different ways.
Consistent Nigella Sativa Oil use has been shown to result in a lowering of LDL cholesterol, (the bad form of cholesterol), and an increase of HDL cholesterol, (the good form of cholesterol).
Nigella Sativa Oil can also help prevent lung damage, body-wide tissue damage and blood vessel damage, in people infected with spike proteins from viral infection or through injections.

Organic Nigella Sativa Oil Promotes Liver Health
Our Liver is responsible for digesting fat and are also our major detox pathway for the whole body. Because Black Seed Oil filters toxins from the body, a properly functioning Liver is vitally important for our overall health.
Animal studies have shown Nigella Sativa Oil helps to heal Liver damage as well also preventing future Liver damage and diseases.
Because the Liver is the major detox pathway in the body Wild As The Wind also advocates the following:
Nigella Sativa & Thyroid Health
A randomised clinical trial reveals that the ancient healing food known as nigella sativa (aka “black seed”), once known as the “remedy for everything but death,” may provide an ideal treatment for the autoimmune thyroid condition known as Hashimoto’s disease, which is the most common cause of hypothyroidism.
Organic Nigella Sativa Oil Is Anti-Tumour…
Numerous active components have been isolated from N. sativa seed and its oil including thymoquinone, thymohydroquinone, dithymoquinone, thymol, carvacrol, nigellimine-N-oxide, nigellicine, nigellidine and alpha-hederin. The pharmacological properties of N. sativa and its ingredients had been investigated by in vitro and in vivo studies conducted on human and laboratory animals. These studies showed that N. sativa and its ingredients have a wide range of pharmacological effects; immune-stimulatory, anti-inflammatory, hypoglycemic, antihypertensive, antiasthmatic, antimicrobial, antiparasitic, antioxidant and anticancer effects (reviewed in Randhawa and Alghamdi, 2002, Randhawa and Alghamdi, 2011, Ali and Blunden, 2003, Salem, 2005, Padhye et al., 2008, Randhawa, 2008). Acute and chronic toxicity studies on laboratory animals have reported that N. sativa seed, its oil and thymoquinone, the most abundant and widely studied active principle, are safe, particularly when given orally (Badary et al., 1998, Mansour et al., 2001, Al-Ali et al., 2008).
Organic Black Seed Oil For Skincare
Organic Nigella Sativa Oil is a powerful antioxidant containing antibacterial and anti-inflammatory constituents. It also has wound healing capabilities.
The reason why Nigella Sativa Oil is so profoundly healing is because it’s an antioxidant powerhouse which is full of exceptionally beneficial components, including the following:
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin B
- Vitamin C
Organic Black Seed Oil replenishes topical moisture levels by reinforcing the water storage capacity of the skin and hair.
It’s excellent for maintaining skin health and vitality, but it’s also very useful in the treatment of Acne and ameliorating conditions like Eczema and reducing the appearance of Psoriasis.
But, because Eczema and Psoriasis are gut issues, taking Organic Nigella Sativa Oil internally is exceptionally useful.
Organic Black Seed Oil Fights Candida & Other Fungal Infections
Organic Black Seed Oil is a powerful anti-fungal and anti-bacterial agent. It has been shown to reduce instances of candida, fungus, and even intestinal parasites when taken orally. (More on parasites later.)
Black Seed Oil can also be applied topically as well as taken internally to treat persistent skin and nail fungal infections including athlete’s foot, ringworm, and toe nail fungus.
*We tend to suffer from topical fungal infections when we have an internal / digestive fungal overgrowth, so treating internally and externally is advised.
For long-term nail fungus we advocate adding Oregano Essential Oil to the mix. Oregano Essential Oil & Nigella Sativa, as well as Oregano Essential Oil and Neem are the two preparations Wild As The Wind advocates for nail fungus.

Organic Nigella Sativa Oil & Parasites
I personally use Organic Back Seed Oil in conjunction with Oregano Essential Oil as an anti-parasitic. I do this routinely about every six months, but if I’m forgetful, I’ll leave it a year before engaging the simple anti-parasitic protocol mentioned in Oregano Essential Oil In Brief and Oregano & Nigella Sativa Preparation. But, I do it knowing that the ancillary benefits are immense…! This is why…
Organic Nigella Sativa Oil In Parasite Cleanses
Perhaps due to their ‘yuck’ factor, parasitic infections aren’t often openly discussed in polite company. But, the reality is, parasitic infections are incredibly widespread, so we’re not doing ourselves, or anyone else, any favours by keeping our parasitic infections to ourselves… Especially considering how easily a lot of parasites can be transferred and contracted from one human to another.
However, there are a lot of people suffering from parasites who don’t even know about it.
It’s estimated that 90% of Americans are infected with one kind of parasite or another… this is why cross-infection risks are very high… especially in view of the fact the majority of people afflicted are completely unaware of their infection.
This being the case, the chance we’ve been served food by someone with parasites, or food which has been prepared by someone with parasites, is pretty high. Plus, the likelihood of exposure via someone else’s parasites, within a six month window, in one way or another, usually via our children etc, is tremendously high…
So, doing a parasite cleanse routinely every six months can be very useful!
**I believe every six months is very useful… others say every 4 months… but doing one a year is way better than doing none at all!!!
Note :: Don’t worry about doing regular parasite cleanses with regards your gut bacterial health. Oregano Essential Oil mainly kills bad bacteria and has a tendency to preserve some of the good probiotic bacteria, which is vital for gut and overall health. Read more here :: Oregano Essential Oil
Plus, as already mentioned, I’m also aware of all of the other benefits of using Organic Nigella Sativa Oil when I use it in my anti-parasitical protocol… so, I prefer to use it as my preferred carrier oil rather than something a lot more benign.
***Coconut Oil or Olive Oil would be good carrier oil alternatives, but nothing beats the healing power of Nigella Sativa! However, there are contraindications, so read these below before using Nigella Sativa, or Black Seed Oil.
Organic Nigella Sativa Oil Dosage
No more than 45 drops to be taken internally twice daily.
***You may need to dilute your dose with another base oil if you gut condition is particularly sensitive. Therefore, Eczema and Psoriasis suffers, (which have their root in the gut), or those with other sensitivity issues can use Olive Oil or Coconut Oil in a ratio of 50:50 to Nigella Sativa, or even higher levels of the alternate oils, slowly increasing the Nigella Sativa content over time.
A little caution is also required for topical application. It’s important to dilute Organic Black Seed Oil for some applications. Organic Sweet Almond Oil or Organic Apricot Kernal are ideal, and very affordable.
***2g is approximately 45 drops of Nigella Sativa Oil, to be taken internally followed by a glass of warm water.
Weight Loss Dosage
Take one to two doses of 45 drops of Nigella Sativa internally, immediately followed by a glass of warm water, daily. One in the morning and one in the evening, at least 20 minutes before or after food.
I think the Nigella Sativa is definitely helping with my weight loss.
Organic Sweet Orange Essential Oil can be added to your warm water, to further enhance the gut reconditioning benefits of this beverage, and improve detox and weight-loss.
Add one drop of Organic Sweet Orange Essential Oil to each glass of warm water to be drunk immediately after ingesting your Nigella Sativa Seed Oil.
Organic Black Seed Oil / Nigella Sativa Oil Contraindications
For those with delicate skin, or known ‘sensitive’ skin conditions it’s best to use Black Seed Oil or Nigella Sativa with caution. However, the chances of an adverse reaction are negligible and any concerns are certainly outweighed by the many and varied benefits of this oil.
However, always perform a patch test on the inside skin of your forearm before applying Black Seed Oil more universally on your body, or before consuming Black Seed Oil internally.
Organic Black Seed Oil may cause side effects in people with food intolerances and those with sensitive skin conditions, as well as those on certain prescription medications. The latter group need to refer to the contraindications list of their prescription drugs before using this oil internally.
Organic Nigella Sativa Oil may cause contact dermatitis; characterised by irritated, angry patches where the oil has been topically applied. Your skin may also become itchy, blotchy, discoloured (usu. red) , dry and flakey.
As per the above report, this has only ever been experienced by one person, and there’s speculation that the quality of the oil used in the study was suspect in this instance.
Because Black Seed Oil has not been tested on pregnant women it’s use is not recommended during pregnancy.
