    I've never heard of poppy seed oil. I actually have a lot of issues with allergies and intolerances so finding the right cooking fat has been tricky. I react badly to nut oils, I'm trying to cut down my dairy intake for health reasons so keep ghee to a minimum, sunflower oil is meant to increase inflammation which makes it really unhealthy and I find my skin reacts badly to a lot of seeds like sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame etc so I was nervous of trying mustard oil but so far it's okay. I'd be nervous of trying poppy seed or its oil for the same reason. Olive oil seems okay for my skin and health but I don't prefer it taste wise and I've heard such mixed views on whether it's suitable as a cooking oil or not (I know the best olive oil is raw cold pressed but that isn't supposed to be cooked, it's supposed to be consumed raw such as in salad dressings etc). On a side note, when it comes to food, I'm curious about avocado oil.

    As for using poppy oil on the head, in my experience massaging the head with any massage oil is calming and soothing. Cooling oils would be especially good in the subcontinent because it's so boiling hot over there most of the year. mum prefers the smell of amla compared to other oils which is why we use it. She even avoids using mustard oil in my cooking because she dislikes the smell of it (it's my dad who cooks my food with it).
    Yea in your situation it's probably best to avoid such oils like poppy seed oil, it's basically poppy seeds which what you use to make couscous (well that's the one my mother in law uses)

    Yes I also want to try avocado oil, heard good things about it

    What about emu oil you heard of that?

    Yea you're right about cooling oils, I like to use essential oils too

    Like tea tree oil is good for razor bumps, cuts and spots etc too

    i heard and i dont know how true it is but because of its cooling effect if you put poppy seed oil on your head it can calm you down, like in regards to tension and stress build up etc

In the handi it tastes waaaaay better than olive oil.

    I don’t chug blackseed oil all the time, I’m just saying I’m so used to it that I can with no problems.

    I only drink it if I feel a cold or flu is coming on. I start off taking one spoon a day and 3 spoons a day when I’m full blown sick.
