Best Naturals Black Seed Oil 500 mg 90 Softgels

Black Cumin Seed (aka Nigella Sativa) Oil has been used for millennia. It dates as far back as ancient Egypt to when black cumin seeds and oil were found in King Tutankhamen’s tomb. It is an annual flowering plant native to south Asia. The seeds are often used as a spice in Indian and Middle Eastern cuisines (e.g., to flavor vegetables, curries, naan bread, cheese, etc). Many of of the health benefits ascribed to Black Cumin Seed Oil have been thoroughly confirmed in biomedical literature. In fact, since 1965, there have been over 980 published, peer-reviewed studies referencing it! It’s benefits are so varied and diverse that, in Arabic cultures, it has even been called a remedy for anything except death! With such praise, fortified by a vast amount of supportive medical literature, it’s not difficult to see why this plant has been used for virtually every ailment and condition ranging from Type II diabetes and hypertension to scalp disorders and hair loss.

After reading so many good things about Nigella Sativa, I decided to implement it into my regimen on two fronts: (1) in the form of a gel capsule as a daily supplement and (2) as a topical scalp treatment to prevent hair breakage and encourage hair growth. I purchased two bottles of the soft gels and one 8 oz. bottle of Black Cumin Seed Oil. I like the Best Naturals brand because both the gel capsules and the Black Cumin Seed Oil contain unrefined, cold-pressed nigella sativa with minimum 0.95% thymoquinone (TQ), one of the main active constituents within nigella sativa next to omega 3, 6, and 9. In addition, unlike some brands, neither product contains no artificial color, flavor or sweetener, no preservatives, no sugar, no starch, no corn, no soy, no egg, no lactose, no gluten, no wheat, no yeast, no fish, and no sodium. The Black Cumin Seed Oil is also listed as organically sourced and non-GMO.

The Black Cumin Seed Oil has a pungent aroma that is spicy, earthy, and herbaceous. It may be off-putting to some, but it doesn’t bother me. If the scent is too strong for you, you may need to add some essential oils to it to mask the pungent smell. However, I chose to use it au naturale. After a day or two of use, I ended up transferring the oil into a small amber glass bottle with a dropper to prevent spillage. This allowed me to have greater control in terms of how much oil I used and made the application process much less chaotic. I simply added a label with my Brother label maker so that I wouldn’t forget what it was.

I purchased a multi-pack (for gifts and to use to store some of my other DIYs), but you can purchase a single bottle as well. Although, it is much more cost effective to purchase in multiples. They also come in larger sizes, too! As well as various colors like blue or green … I absolutely adore these dropper bottles. I have the 2 oz size in amber, blue, and green. I use them for storing my Black Cumin Seed Oil (and hopefully other oil blends), my DIY Vitamin C Serum, and a whole host of other things as well. I originally toyed with transferring the oil into one of my applicator bottles or Roots Only bottles, but the amber dropper glass bottle worked out best.

I love the texture of this Black Seed Oil. It is just as light as the amazing Goals Beauty Healthy Hair Oil I tried last month. However, it is super dark like Jamaican Black Castor Oil … just no where as thick. I applied the oil 3x a week for a little over a month and massaged my scalp each time I applied it.

Unfortunately, after taking two bottles of the soft gels, I honestly didn’t feel like they were “doing” anything. Granted, I eat clean, and I am relatively healthy BUT still. I expected an increased metabolism, less joint inflammation, expedited hair growth, SOMETHING!

My results, after 33 days of use was, quite frankly, disappointing. I have read some studies that suggest that benefits require prolonged use (i.e., at least 3 months), so I may revisit the use of Black Cumin Seed in the future but, for now, I think it’s a pass! Even my mom, who is a breast cancer survivor and has Type II diabetes said she was disappointed, and she purchased a much more expensive brand of soft gels and Black Cumin Seed Oil. Ha! Needless to say, we were both underwhelmed. So far, she says the Virgin Hair Fertilizer is working better for her, and I agree! Her hair is starting to fill in nicely.

According to the product label, Goals Beauty Complete Healthy Hair Oil is “a biotin-infused, fatty acid, antioxidant-rich, healthy hair oil that promotes stronger, healthier hair while serving as an antiseptic moisturizer. This hair tonic aids in a healthy scalp by clearing scalp irritations, including dandruff and skin inflammation, which may interfere with healthy hair growth.”

I like the fact that this Healthy Hair Oil comes in a black bottle so I don’t have to worry about the formula being altered (i.e., by sunlight, etc). I also love that this bottle has a twist applicator top. Usually, the first thing I do when I am trying a new hair growth oil is transfer the oil into a different bottle with a traditional or slanted applicator top, or use my Roots Only bottle. Thankfully, I didn’t have to do that with this bottle because it came with one. The spout even adjusts. All you have to do is twist it open more or less for the size opening you prefer.

My only complaint (about the bottle) is that it is difficult to gauge how much to adjust the opening (at least initially). For instance, when I first applied the oil to my scalp, hours later, I had oil dripping down my neck, my forehead, the sides of my face, everywhere! LOL. It was because I couldn’t readily see whether the hole at the top of the applicator was open too wide or too narrow. As a result, apparently a lot more oil was coming out than I thought! So, err on the side of caution. It took me a good week to get the bottle opening perfectly adjusted, and I feel like I wasted a lot of oil in the process!

Other than that, I absolutely adore how light this oil is. It never weighed down my fine hair strands (except in the beginning when I accidentally applied 2-3x too much oil due to operator issues with the twist top)! It has a pleasant slightly fruity scent that I enjoy. Nothing strong or overbearing. And, the oil itself is quite thin and almost transparent (slightly reminiscent of the Ancient Secrets oil I tried way back when).

I used the Healthy Hair Oil for four weeks (28 days). The company website doesn’t provide a list of ingredients (or even directions), so I typed them all out above, for your convenience. Watch the video below to find out what I think about this product in greater detail and to see how well this Healthy Hair Oil worked for me …
