I'm a frequent user of Black Seed Oil (Nigella sativa). It's got a variety of health-boosting effects ranging from killing pathogens & lowering blood pressure to reducing inflammation & aiding in digestion. But the biggest noticeable benefit for me is the subtle relaxing effect that combines so well with my daily kratom tea. Not only does Black Seed have a nice depressant effect, it also eases the rebound symptoms of benzos & barbiturates for me. (I get godawful depression & irritability after even a single dose of these & other GABA drugs). It's one of only a handful of supplements I've tried that actually has a measurable effect and a positive one at that.
I've been buying my Black Seed Oil from online-halal-store for about a year with no issue. He carries a variety of bottle sizes, some with a Euro dropper top & some with an eyedropper option. I prefer the eyedropper for ease of use. This time I got the 3.39 oz. bottle for $13.95 plus tax (shipping included). Delivery took 4 days total, which is about average for this seller. Packaging was sufficient, with the glass bottle firmly wrapped in bubble wrap to ensure it didn't break. I've never had a bottle break, fyi.

While whole seeds are cheaper--like dirt cheap--the oil is much easier on the GI tract. If you fail to chew the seeds sufficiently, be prepared for severe pain once they hit the intestines haha. I give this order a 4.7 of 5 stars for quality, packaging & shipping time. I'd prefer if all bottles came with an eyedropper option & tax wasn't tacked onto the already somewhat steep price, but that's more of an eBay issue than a seller issue. This vendor's prices are in line with what others charge for this product so I'm just nitpicking. I'd totally recommend online-halal-store to anyone wanting to add Black Seed Oil to their supplement regimen.
