Candle FELT NIGELLA is a candle with an uncommon nigella sativa bouquet. You will rarely find a bouquet of nigellas at a store or even at the florist, but their captivating deep navy and calming blues are worth appreciating and worthy of their own unconventional everlasting bouquet. It’s a great gift for someone who loves wildflowers and wouldn’t mind having a candle that starts conversations and is beautiful to admire.
Did you know that the seeds of a Nigella Sativa have great health benefits? We sometimes add a sprinkle of them to our meals; they’re amazing on sandwiches.
The seeds are called black cumin and they were traditionally used for medicinal purposes:
‘Traditionally, N. sativa seeds have had many uses due to their anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-viral properties (Padhye et al., 2008). Applications of the seed include detoxification, purging parasites, treatment of abscesses, ulcers or tumours, headaches, asthma, local anaesthetic and as a remedy for toothaches.
[…] The seeds are ingested as a digestive aid after large celebratory feasts and also used as a beauty product as popularized by Egyptian Queen Nefertiti (Albert-Matesz, 2003). More commonly, black cumin is used in food products to flavour bread, curries, and confectionaries in South Asian countries (Botnick et al., 2012).’
