Black Seed Oil, also known as Black Cumin Oil, is a remarkable and highly prized nutritive oil. Black seed oil has been used for thousands of years by many cultures from around the world. Black seed oil and black seeds were found in King Tut’s tomb and it is also known to have been used by Cleopatra, Queen Nefertiti and Hippocrates.
Black seed oil has a unique cell structure, and contains vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids.
Black Seed Oil can be taken on its own or mixed in water, juice or herbal tea. Did we mention that it's an easy way to add omegas to your diet?!

Are the plastic bottles BPA-free?
Yes, we use BPA-free bottles made of Polyethylene and the main difference is that our bottle is black to protect it from light which can degrade the oil. If you're looking to ditch plastic completely, we do offer this oil in a 32 oz glass bottle up above.
Do your artisan cold-pressed oils need to be shipped refrigerated? Does the shipping time affect the oils?
Very high heat (over 300 degrees) or prolonged heat over a very long time can degrade the omega-rich oils. However, the relatively short shipment times and variable seasonal temperatures encountered during shipment have been found to be irrelevant when tested. Even shipments arriving during the summer heat waves can be guaranteed as being potent and unharmed.
Can I cook with your artisan cold-pressed oils?
Cooking with our artisan cold-pressed oils is not recommended and really defeats the purpose of Foods Alive taking such great care in pressing the oil at a low temperature. The omega essential fatty acids are very delicate and really high heat will destroy them. But you can use it after cooking on a number of dishes by adding it your dish once it's on your plate and ready to consume.
