More Information

Most of the vegetable oils used in aromatherapy do not have much of a perceptible odour, but black seed is an exception. It has a slightly medicinal and spicy fragrance that is noticeable, but certainly not unpleasant, - and its wealth of benefits more than makes up for this.

Of course, as soon as any essential oils are added to black seed to use in massage treatments etc, its unique fragrance instantly disappears.

A great find

I was recommended Quinessence by a friend who used to use them predominantly, for all things aromatherapy while she was a practising, successful aromatherapist. I have found that their fine quality products are well presented, safely packaged and arrived rapidly. I'm thoroughly happy to pass on the recommendation. Quinessence was one of the first companies to be put on the Favourites list of my new laptop.

Good that postage was included in the price, and love the anti animal testing policy. Wish that VAT wasn't added in on the end.
