Here at Nigella Therapy, we are deeply committed to supporting our communities both in the Washington, D.C. area where we are based and in Egypt where we source our foundational key ingredient, Nigella sativa, also known as black seeds or black cumin seeds. We wholeheartedly believe in the individual and corporate responsibility to do good - Nigella Therapy offers effective products made with the highest quality ingredients to meet the needs of our customers and, in the process, we support community development projects that contribute to creating a better tomorrow for all. That is why, for every product you purchase, we will donate $1 to a local community development organization in the U.S.


How do we select the organization to receive donation?

The Nigella Therapy management team will select a local 501(c)3-certified non-profit organization to receive this donation. We welcome you to nominate your favorite organization or cause by contacting Iman Kandil ( or via Twitter or Facebook!


How does Nigella Therapy support community development in Egypt?

The Nigella sativa seeds we use are sourced from an independently-owned and operated organic farm along the Western bank of the Nile River in Minya, Egypt. Instead of working with corporate farms, we believe in the importance of supporting independent farmers and small businesses as a means to sustainable economic and community development.
