Just about everyone has heard of sesame seed oil; but what is Black Cumin seed oil?

So what is Black Cumin Seed?
A fragrant seed in the Parsley family, used as a spice, Cumin seeds can serve as an ingredient in curry powder. Black cumin seeds share similar properties to Garlic and Cat’s claw.
In addition to being strong in the Anti-leukemic region, the seed can provide some immunity during the cold and flu seasons.
As an Organic Gurlz Gardens favorite, my Mommy, Becca (pictured left), usually brews up a black cumin seed tea around fall and winter time. Along with warming up the kitchen, we are protecting ourselves from sickness!
Tbsp. of Black cumin seeds (Add more or less depending on your pallet)
Take the black cumin seeds (Amount depends on how you would enjoy the strength of tea) and place into pot. Then, take hot water and pour into pot on top of seeds. Let the new brew steep for about 7 – 10 minutes.
*We at Organic Gurlz Gardens recommend covering the tea until time to serve. Although it is a delicious aroma, you don’t want it to “run” around in the house! **
For other culinary uses, the oil can be applied to a dish like olive oil.
