Black Seed Tea Benefits and Side Effects

Unfortunately, not a lot of people know about the benefits of black seed tea, black seed oil or just plain ole' black seed!

Black seed, also known as black cumin seed, is a very small seed, and the people that use it swear that it can treat everything and anything! Here are some of the benefits of black seed:

and the list goes on........

There are no known side effects for black seed and it is very simple to make tea with it.

Pour hot water over a tablespoon of black seeds and let it sit for about 10 minutes, covered.

Then add your sweetner: honey, agave nectar, sugar.....whatever you like to make your tea sweet with!

Or you could always just purchase the tea already made in tea bags!

If you have a skin disease such as psoriasis or eczema, rub black seed oil on it to help it go away.

Black seed is also a great alternative to use in order to increase your milk supply if you don't want the side effects that come along with fenugreek, fennel, or blessed thistle. Just take 2 capsules 2 times a day.

To get any of the benefits of black seed, take black seed oil in gel capsules, or plain black seeds in capsules. Or drink it in tea form.
