Black seed is an herb used in natural remedies for both internal and external conditions. Black seed soap helps relieve skin irritations and is known to help clear up skin issues that result in pimples and breakouts. While black seed soap is available for purchase through online sites and some speciality stores, you can make your own black seed soap at home. Doing so allows you to add your own fragrance to personalise the soap or leave it unscented, if you prefer.

    Pop out the soap from the soap moulds and store in a cool location until use.

Tips and warnings

  • Use lavender essential oil for a calming fragrance. Use grapefruit essential oil for a soap that's more energising.
  • Make black seed soap without the bar of mild white soap for a liquid soap.
