A friend told me about Wild as the Wind Nigella Sativa and it ‘felt’ right. I’m now on my third bottle and quite astonished at how useful it is. I started a heart problem a year ago. My heart would thump so hard when I lay on my left side in bed that it felt as though it was bruising my ribs. Nigella Sativa has stopped it! I take it daily for about a week (the problem usually stops on the first day) and then stop it for a couple of weeks. Sometimes I forget but the heart thing starts again and reminds me to take some more. It is surprisingly easy to take and I also love to put it on my face occasionally. It makes my skin feel amazing. Can’t wait to try some more products. Rachel is so knowledgeable I have learnt such a lot from her website and blogs. Thank you so much

Detoxification With Organic Nigella Sativa Oil
This review summarized several in vivo and in vitro studies in order to realize the role of N. sativa and its bioactive component, TQ, in inhibition of food toxins related toxicities in different tissues. Heavy metals, antibiotics residue, food processing toxicants, mycotoxins and food additives are examples of natural and chemical toxic agents in foods that can be prevented by N. sativa and TQ. N. sativa and its bioactive components could protect different tissues against food toxins through numerous mechanisms as well as free radical scavenging, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, amelioration in the disturbed levels of biochemical indicators, modulation of antioxidant defense systems, prevention of apoptosis and controlling effects on genes expression, and different signaling pathways. N. sativa has also ability to protect different organs and tissues such as kidney, liver, gastrointestinal, lung, heart, blood, brain, and reproductive system against toxins. In conclusion, based on the present review, N. sativa has a wide spectrum of protective activities against food toxicants induced toxicities. Therefore, N. sativa can be introduced as a supplement in the daily diet of individuals for inhibition of food toxins side effects.
Organic Nigella Sativa Oil & Neurological Health
This review article summarized in vitro and in vivo studies in order to report the effects of NS and its active constituents on the nervous system. According to different studies it seems that NS can affect the nervous system and related diseases. In these studies, aqueous, alcoholic and hydro-alcoholic extracts and NSO has been considered. It should be mentioned that TQ is seen to be the most useful known element of NS and can be regarded as a useful agent in the treatment of diseases of the nervous system. The results of several studies have shown that this plant can improve memory impairment, anxiety, depression, epilepsy, neurotoxicity, neurodegeneration and pain. In addition, based on the current review, it is concluded that NS, through inhibition of acetylcholinestrase enzyme and particularly due to its antioxidative effects improves nervous system diseases. It is also suggested that NS has interactions with the GABA, opioid and NO system. However, a few studies confirmed the beneficial effects of NS on epilepsy and seizures in children.

Tracy, Chertsey, Surrey
After spending much of my life with digestive problems, IBS, constipation, trapped wind, yeast infections, I have tried loads of different remedies but really with not much success…
Constipation being the most problematic, I regularly go up to five days without a bowel movement, which obviously takes it toll on my health…

Rachel has literally changed my life with her Nigella Sativa Oil… Right from first taking it it started to work, I have been taking it for almost a month and now I have a bowel movement everyday.

Nigella sativa, medicinal plant. Nigella sativa (Fam. Ranunculaceae), native of the Mediterranean region, has been used as food, aromatic or therapeutic plant since Antiquity. Its seeds were found in Pharaoh Tutankhamen’s tomb (1325 BC), having the role of assisting the Pharaoh when he passed on into the afterlife (AL-BUKHARI, 1976). Species of Nigella genus were described and recommended for use in alimentation and medicine by the philosophers of ancient Greece and Rome. The most valuable species is Nigella sativa, known under different names at different peoples: git (ancient Greece); melanthion, melanthium, melaspermon (ancient Rome), black cumin, black seeds or barakka (countries from the United Kingdom) a/o. Nigella sativa was described in their works by Cato, Hippocrates, Dioscorides, Plinius, Palladium, and Nigella aristata by Dioscorides (DIOSCORIDES, 1529; PLINIUS SECUNDUS, 1668; FRAAS, 1845; LENZ, 1859).
In the Holy Quran, it is stated that Prophet Muhammad said: “Use the Black Seed for indeed, it is a cure for every disease except death” (AL-BUKHARI, 1976; SHARMA et al., 2009). Ibn Sina, known under the name of AVICENNA (980-1037) in “The Canon of Medicine”, included this species among the natural drugs “Tibb-e-Nahavi”, “Medicine of the Prophet” (MANNAN & KAHVIC, 2010). In the characterization of this species, features of the actual adaptogenic species are mentioned: “the seeds stimulate the body’s energy and help recovery from fatigue and dispiritedness”, the black seeds being used for healing all diseases. In traditional medicine, the barakka seeds are used for their properties: carminative, aromatic, stimulant, diuretic, anthelmintic, galactagogue and diaphoretic. They are used as a condiment in curries. Tincture prepared from seeds is recommended in indigestion cases, the loss of appetite, diarrhoea, dropsy, amenorrhea and dysmenorrhoea, as well as against worms and in cutaneous eruption. The oil obtained from seeds has antiseptic properties.

Directions For Use
Organic, Food Grade Nigella Sativa Oil can be ingested or applied topically. It has a number of different applications, listed below:
Take one or two doses of Organic Nigella Sativa Oil daily.

A single dose is comprised of 45 drops of Organic Nigella Sativa Seed Oil, which equals half a level teaspoon.

With Brasil Nuts:
Alternatively, place the 1/2 teaspoon of oil into your mouth, and then add 3 or 4 Brazil Nuts. Chew on the nuts until completely broken down, and then swallow.
A small number of Brazil Nuts provide us with all of the Selenium we need to support optimal thyroid health, and chewing these nuts with Organic Nigella Sativa Seed Oil will improve the absorption of the oil.
Digestion begins in the mouth, so the longer we chew our food, the better our nutrient absorption.
*For optimal thyroid health, we also need good levels of iodine and magnesium.
At slightly increased levels, Organic Nigella Sativa Oil will further assist with desired weight loss. But, even when taken in smaller amounts, Organic Nigella Sativa Oil will work to normalise our weight.
If your primary reason for taking Organic Nigella Sativa Oil is to normalise your weight, two doses per day is more optimal.
When using Organic Nigella Sativa Oil twice daily, take half a level teaspoon in the morning and then again in the evening.
Organic Nigella Sativa Oil can be used for topical application on all parts of the body, except for the eyes. However, it can safely be used around your eyes, if desired.

Cautions & Contraindications
The chances of an adverse reaction are negligible.
However, always perform a patch test on the inside skin of your forearm before applying Black Seed Oil more broadly on your body, or before consuming Black Seed Oil internally.
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 which accompany their prescription drugs before using this oil internally.
Because Black Seed Oil has not been tested on pregnant women it’s use is not recommended during pregnancy.

If you have sensitive skin, or if you do a lot of sun bathing, it is always advisable to perform a patch test on the soft skin on the inside of your forearm, especially before using carrier oils on your face.
Perform A Patch Test
Place a drop or two of Wild As The Wind oil on your inner forearm, making sure to massage it well into your skin.
