At LXMI, we believe that beauty is more than skin deep. A healthy glow is a reflection both of what we put on our skin and in our bodies. Many of the clean, botanical ingredients we use in our skincare line do not only work wonders when applied topically, but also provide powerful benefits when ingested. 🌿
Nigella Sativa/black seed oil has been used to treat skin conditions and ailments since the ancient Egyptians - these powerful seeds were even included in Tutankhamun’s tomb in 1323 BC. It’s a powerhouse for good skin health: it's highly anti-inflammatory and soothing (both for example for skin conditions such as acne and psoriasis, as well as a digestive remedy).
Especially as the weather starts to get colder, we love making this immune-boosting golden milk - containing black seed oil, which is also one of the key ingredients in our glow-giving LXMI 33 Face Oil.
Golden milk with black seed oil
Bring two cups of alt milk to a simmer (we like to use almond milk, but any plant-based milk works).
Add 1 tbsp of ground or grated turmeric, and 1 tsp of ground or grated ginger.
Blend in 1 tbsp of black seed oil and a pinch of Ceylon cinnamon and let it simmer for 5 minutes.
Strain the mixture if needed and enjoy the delicious golden milk! 🍁
