Easiest to Take

Premium Black Seed Oil Pills by PurePremium


Quality Oil in Capsule Form

These pills are great for those who often forget to take their supplements, or have a lot to take. Swallow and benefit!

What We Liked

Unlike the other entries on this list, which are in liquid form, this black seed oil comes in easy-to-swallow capsules of 500 mg each, making them perfect for popping down with breakfast before you head out the door or after dinner. The drawback here is that these don’t really allow for as much variance as liquid black seed oil (where you can fine tune how much you’re taking down to the milliliter). But 500 milligrams provide a great baseline dose, and this is a perfect fit for the common consumer. This set comes with 90 capsules, so it’ll most likely last at least a couple of months, depending on how much you’re taking. Order Online.

Largest Bottle

USDA Certified Organic Black Seed Oil – 100% Virgin


Go Big with This Bottle

This bottle is twice as large as competing brands. If you know you love this oil already, this is a great value!

What We Liked

When you’re talking about 100 percent virgin black seed oil, the differences are going to come in the details. This Zhou Nutrition black seed oil offers twice the oil as the other bottles on this list (240 milliliters to 120 milliliters), meaning you’ll have double the supplemental black seed oil before having to buy more. The downside here is that there’s no dropper, so you’ll have to pour out the oil into a teaspoon to use it (which, naturally, can result in increased spillage). Order Today.

Best Dropper

Amazing Herbs Black Seed Cold-Pressed Oil


Easy to Use

This little bottle comes with a dropper, which makes sublingual usage simple.

What We Liked

The Amazing Herbs bottle is half the size of the Zhou Nutrition one, but unlike the former, this bottle comes with a dropper to aid in easy dosing. This makes the Amazing Herbs black seed oil great for providing supplements to young kids or others who can’t swallow pills, like the elderly or disabled. It also serves to minimize spillage when dosing, as you can drop the oil directly under the tongue (sublingual) or into a drink for mixing. Buy Yours Now.

Best for Topical Use

Organic Black Seed Oil – 4oz USDA Certified


Excellent Sprayer Included

The spray pump makes this a superb choice for those looking to apply their oil topically.

What We Liked

This bottle, from PRIME NATURAL, comes in a 120 milliliter size and includes both a dropper and a pump sprayer which creates a mist for topical application. This bottle of black seed oil is the best option if you’re looking to apply the oil topically, say to the scalp for hair loss or to increase circulation. It will ensure an even distribution and avoid overuse, which is more likely to happen if you attempt to pour the oil from the Zhou bottle or use the dropper included in the previous entry.
