Difference between Black seed oil and Black cumin
Black seed oil comes from the Nigella Sativa plant. It is known by a few other names. However, there has been a lot of confusion around the black seed. There are a few other seeds that stores and people have confused them with black seed. I will go through a few of them. First, all black seed comes from the plant named Nigella Stavia. If it doesn’t come from this plant then it’s not the black seed. Onion seed even though it’s lighter in completion. A lot of stores label onion seeds as black seeds. Black sesame seed has the same look and color as black seed oil. Caraway is a fennel seed. The confusion comes because its name is also known as Black cumin. Cumin is confused as black seed. Lastly, is the Royal cumin and cumin seed. Both are known as black cumin seeds. Black seed and Black cumin are not the same. Black cumin comes from the plant Cuminum cyminum. I hope that clears up the confusion.
