Skin & Fungal Infections
Nigella Sativa seeds contain antibacterial properties that contribute towards fighting a variety of skin infections. For example, in one test, Nigella sativa seeds extracted at a concentration of 33% were applied to pustules of staphylococcal skin infections and were shown to be nearly as effective as the commonly prescribed antibiotic drug.
Studies on Black Seed Oil
In this study, it was proven that black seed oil reduces the aggravation of hand eczema.
A study conducted in 2012 identified that black seed oil may be a powerful contender for people suffering from psoriasis.
In a clinical study nigella sativa oil lotion (10%) was noted to “significantly” reduce lesions after use of 2 months – with 67% of the participants recorded to be fully satisfied by the treatment.
- Other Skin Conditions
In fact, in this same document, you will note a series of clinical trials for skin related conditions that also identify the positive impact of black seed oil on wound healing, skin pigmentation, allergic reactions and skin cancers.
There have been several other studies conducted, each showing that the Nigella Sativa seed is a strong contender for fighting certain bacteria beyond skin infections, including helping in fighting the spread of MRSA
