  • Hi,
    I am a producer of this herb. For people to receive the best benefit, black seed oil should be taken over a long period of time (Certain ailments are quickly resolved). For this reason I am selling it at a price that most people can afford when buying 6 bottles.
    Please let me know what results you have
    Daniel
