black seed oil
Posted by Reviewer2183128 on Dec 27, 2012
I think this tastes like turpentine. I can manage to drink it in tea with a bit of stevia. I have yet to determine if it's effective for anything. However unexplainably, I did have a swollen knee (like water over the knee) and the right lymph gland under my chin swell following about 5 days use. No other symptoms of illness of any sort, the knee and gland stayed swollen for 3 days, again not sick at all. I suspect black seed oil maybe helped my immune system fight some sort of infection and thats only a personal assumption. I make no medical claims here at all. I found a helpful article at amazing herbs called "ARTICLE: Black Seed Oil - Current Research". you can google it. starts out with..."Recently scientists around the world have confirmed the anti-bacterial and anti-mycotic effects of black seed oil. " I am going to continue to test this out another week.
Unsure, dislike the smell

I did have high hopes when I decided to buy this, after reading on it online. I bought it mainly for eczema issues (red bumps with liquid), maybe it works better for dry type of eczema?! Anyway, I did try a few times on my skin, it did have a very slight burning feeling but it goes away quickly. Not sure if it helps, I felt I am getting more tiny goosebump type bumps, not sure if it is related, so I stopped using it on my skin. I tried one teaspoon once. The smell is horrible, like petrol. But it does goes away after awhile. I am unsure if I will buy again. I now used it on my face sometimes, and my ears which are having weepy eczema issues. I do not use it on my body now.
Product is great, but seal was broken.

I love BSO, but I am going to buy the capsules from now on. Every time I buy it, the seal is broken - I'm guessing because it's a thick oil. I encourage everyone to try BSO!

Have been taken 2 teaspoons of this daily for 2 months, but I have yet to experience any positive effects.

I used this product on my skin. It made my skin feel smooth and moisturized.

Don't really like the taste. But for health reason, it's acceptable.

I have noticed some improvement in my overall health, however, my husband has had little to no improvement at this stage.

Once we ordered our item it did not ship. I had to call and find out what had happened. I was told that the order went to the warehouse but did not get pulled or shipped. They put the request back in and we recieved the item within a week Thanks, Craig C. Steffen
