Black seed oil has been used in the region for centuries. It is a household remedy that we’ve inherited from our mothers and continue to indulge in its beauty powers, and we’re not the only ones.

The miracle oil comes with a centuries-old legacy, tracing back to the days of Ancient Egypt. Nicknamed the ‘Pharaoh’s oil’, some of it was found in King Tut’s tomb, and rumour has it that Cleopatra and Nefertiti have used it as part of their beauty regimen.

Whether it’s called black cumin or caraway seed oil, Egypt’s best kept secret has made a comeback beyond the region, with the likes of the Karadashians adding it to their haircare products, and for good reason. Here are five reasons why you need to try black seed oil

Beginners note: you can use it up to two times a day, morning and night, and on all skin types and dry hair.

It’s synonymous with long shiny hair
Black seed oil is your go-to for soft, hydrated and shiny hair. It’s also perfect against hair loss as it contains thymoquinone, a powerful antihistamine often prescribed to help with hair regrowth.

It prevents acne

It diminishes fine lines and wrinkles
