Use Black Seed Oil for Skin Rashes

Black Seed Oil 

is what I have been using since August 2020.  It is an oil from the Nigella Sativa seed and is also called kalonji.  It originates from Egypt, South Asia and the Middle East


I first heard what this oil could do while researching online how to alleviate a stubborn patch of eczema on the back of my neck.  Udo’s oil is great by is composed of several types of oils including coconut oil and evening primrose oil.  I was looking for a single ingredient oil and discovered that Black Seed oil is good for skin rashes such as eczema and psoriasis.

 The Blessed Seed Company:

sells different strengths of this oil ranging from Mild, Original, Strong to Extra Strong.

To be on the careful side, I bought one bottle of the Strong version of Black Seed oil.  Just to see if the reviews I had read were true.  After one month of using this oil, my skin became smoother and the rashes cleared up.  

Benefits of Black Seed Oil

1.  As it contains Omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids in perfect ratio, my skin became smoother within  one month of using it.

2.  I also had clearer dreams each night.  I normally eat a healthy diet full of vegetable juices, avocado smoothies and bean soups, so have dreams anyway.  However, on this oil, I would get 3 to 4 dreams each night and also remember the last 2 dreams when I woke up the next morning.  Some of them were even in technicolour!

3.  My hair grew faster and thicker.  I did a Big Chop at the end of April 2021.  Fast forward to September 2021 and my hair has grown 2 inches in the front and middle of my head. 1 inch at the sides and 1/2 inch at the back. 

4.  I discovered a lump in my breast in April 2021 and it was quite painful to touch.  I increased my dose of black seed oil to 2 tablespoons a day and the pain disappeared.  I went to see a nurse in my GP surgery and she booked a referral appointment to see a doctor in the nearest hospital.  I managed to get the appointment 2 months later.

When the doctor checked for the lump, all he found was breast tissue.  It was probably breast tissue in the first place, but it was lumpy and really painful before I took the oil. I’m not saying that the lump disappeared because of black seed oil…Rather that the pain definitely went.

I also took wheatgrass juice – 2 1ml sachets a day for 60 days. And at least 4 glasses of vegetable juice every day.  I also prayed every day saying these words “Lump shrink, Shrink lump”  This regime worked.  And I have no need to worry any more.


Black seed oil is very potent and should only be taken in small doses of between 1-3 teaspoons.  That equals half a tablespoon to one and a half tablespoons.

For mild eczema, I only took one teaspoon twice a day. I took one more teaspoon when I discovered the lump. You are meant to take this oil with a little honey or yoghurt.  I took mine neat with no problems.

The oil has a bitter taste, but it does not linger on your tastebuds. You can add a drop of lemon juice to it, for the flavour to be less bitter.

Important:  If you are breastfeeding or pregnant, it is wise not to take this oil, but use the seeds in cooking soups and stews instead.  As the seeds are milder in potency and also used in cooking.

Strengthens Immunity

Black seed oil strengthens the immune system and can aid in a variety of ailments and diseases. It is helpful in treating headaches, nasal congestion, toothache and intestinal worms.

It is used greatly among Middle Eastern and South Asian cultures. 

Despite it’s wide use in these cultures, it is only recently that the seed has been studied by those in the Western parts of the world.  Scientific research is still beginning to catch up, hence benefits have not yet been directly linked and supported by the use of this oil.

It is best combined with the body’s natural defense systems.  When it’s nutritional properties are used together with the body’s, black seed oil helps in maintaining health and overcoming illness.


1.  Black seed oil should not be taken on a full stomach.

2.  It is toxic at high doses so should only be taken at a dose of up to 3 teaspoons daily. Which I mentioned earlier.

I currently take one tablespoon (2 teaspoons) a day. I started on the smallest dose of  one teaspoon daily and started taking 2 teaspoons, (1 tablespoon) this year.

As I am of average height, I figured that 2 teaspoons was alright for me.

3.  I tried using a little oil on my arm, but my skin is sensitive and I found the oil left a small mark.  As a result, I only take this oil internally as it works slower and yet is still effective.

How Much Does Black Seed Oil Cost?

Black Seed oil varies in price according to how strong the volatile component of the oil is.  It also varies according to the size of bottle ordered. I bought the Strong version of the oil for £12.99.

Why I Recommend Blessed Seed Black Seed Oil

The Blessed Seed Company found that the strength of black seed oil can vary considerably depending on various factors.

1.  They discovered that the strength is measured from the amount of volatile oil present.

2.  The volatile oil differs depending on the hybrid and where the seed is grown.  For countries with extreme heat, the content of volatile oil is increased.

Blessed Seed brand is 100% pure virgin quality cold-pressed black seed oil.

However, they do have a disclaimer saying that their products are not intended to diagnose, treat, prevent or cure any disease.  

I would like to add that you should remember that all supplements natural or otherwise must be taken alongside a varied, balanced diet that is rich in vegetables, beans, lentil and natural, whole foods.

Having used Black Seed oil for almost a year, I can say that I have found the oil very useful for keeping my skin clear of rashes.  It also was useful in getting rid of my breast lump pain.

Though I am normally skeptical of reviews I see online, unless I had not tried using this oil for myself, I would not have believed how useful this oil could be.

If you are skeptical like me, go on and get a good brand of oil like Blessed Seed.  Try the Mild version of their oil and try it for yourself.

I have told you the right, safe dose to take, so you are in safe hands.

    Where is the best place to get this black seed oil can you buy it at Walmart or do I need to go to a vitamin store, I personally do not have a skin problem at all.

    Except aging will black seed oil help a person aging, in other words, will it help soften and hydrate aging skin, I hate to say the only experience I had with this product is fish oil pills is the closest thing in my brain.

    Although I doubt that the fish oil has the same properties and does the same for you like the black seed oil.

    And I think your topic is Rock especially for these poor people with Xema and psoriasis. And would it help the itching of psoriasis?

    Thank you for this article,

    I have discovered black seed oil researching online. And I am impressed with the many benefits it has. But one of the things that has ticked with me is that it can help us to grow our hair faster and thicker. This is one of the things I have struggled with all my life. And have tried many products. I hope black seed oil makes the difference.

      If you are struggling to get your hair to grow, then you also need to drink more water or vegetable juice daily.  Also, eat chicken or oily fish every day as your hair is made out of protein.

      Oil treatments are also useful for encouraging healthy hair.

    I have used tea tree oil before but I’ve never had experienced with black seed oil. Your experience and benefit from black seed oil sound amazing especially about hair growing thicker. However, beside from helping skin rash and other benefit, I’m wondering does it help to improve skin condition for people who’s dealing with acne or inflammation? Also, is it suitable for people who have oily skin type and will it cause skin breakout when consuming? 

    • Stella says:

      Black seed oil is only taken in small amounts and is beneficial for all skin types.  Because of the omega 3, 6, 9 fatty acids, it balances out the sebum levels in oily skin for it to behave more normally.

      The oil is also good at beating inflammation which is the major cause of eczema and other skin conditions.

    Hey Stella,

    Just stumbled upon your post on Black Seed Oil and I’m seriously impressed with the results you’ve seen! I’ve got that ginger-sensitive skin, so I’m always on the hunt for something that’ll soothe without causing a scene. I’m thinking of giving the Blessed Seed a shot, especially since you’ve laid out all the details so neatly. Here’s to hoping it’ll keep my skin rash-free and maybe even spruce up this redhead’s hair game too. Cheers for sharing your experience, definitely eased up the skepticism over here!

      Hey Andrew,

      Blessed Seed oil comes in 3 strengths – Mild, Original and Strong.  Start with mild and move up…The taste is an acquired one, so flavour with a little honey when you take it.

      Hope your hair gets thicker too, not to mention your skin smoother.

  5. Jonah says:

    Wow , black seed oil really seams to be what I’m looking for. I have pain in my joints, especially in the you think black seed oil could help relive that pain ? Thanks a lot for the in depth post , and all the experience that you shared !

    • admin says:

      I haven’t used  black seed oil for joint pain, but as it is good for inflammation, there’s no harm in trying. Start with the original flavour as black seed oil is an acquired taste and is rather bitter.  

      I suppose you could flavour it with a little honey to take the bitter edge off.

      I’m glad you enjoyed reading the post.  There’s more where that came from!

    I’ve personally tried using black seed oil for skin rashes, and I found it to be quite effective. It provided relief from itching and helped soothe the irritated skin. 

    Its natural properties make it a safe option to consider. However, it’s always a good idea to consult with a healthcare professional for persistent or severe rashes, just to be on the safe side.

    • admin says:

      I’m glad you find black seed oil so useful.  It’s a one-stop wonder, isn’t it?  Though it is a good idea to consult a healthcare professional, I must admit that continued use of antihistamines and steroid creams are not a good option either.  

      For persistent or severe rashes, one has to treat the root cause which is probably due to a gut issue.  I find that cleansing the bowel or liver flushes after a bowel cleanse, clears up rashes on a more permanent basis, no matter how severe the rash is.

    Your article on using black seed oil for skin rashes is enlightening. I’ve heard about its potential benefits, but your detailed breakdown of the properties and application process is insightful. Have you personally experienced positive results with black seed oil for skin issues? I’m curious about specific skin conditions it may be most effective for.

    Moreover, your emphasis on consulting a dermatologist is crucial. While natural remedies can be beneficial, individual reactions vary. Have you encountered any other natural remedies that complement the use of black seed oil? Sharing such insights could be valuable for those exploring holistic skincare solutions. Thanks for shedding light on this natural remedy!

      I’m glad you found this article enlightening.  Go to some of my other articles to discover more home remedies about how to clear skin naturally.

      Though I used steroid creams in the past, I found that my skin worsened the longer I used them.  So I had my last flare-up in 2016 and the rest is history.

      I have also used all the methods written on my site.  So I know they work.  

      I also talk about the 3 regimes for skin – What you eat, what you moisturise with and what you bathe in.  The only thing I haven’t tried with black seed oil is applying it directly on my skin.  

      I use the strong variety of Black seed oil and wouldn’t want to get a reaction…
