Before COVID made its presence known in my household (of 2 people - my daughter and I) I was browsing the shelves of my local Indian grocery store, and I lighted upon a bottle of Virgin Kalonji Oil (Black Seed Oil) cold pressed, also known as Nigella Sativa Oil. This comes as 100% Pure Oil. I used a glass medicine dropper to get 3 drops on my tongue each day that my daughter was sick with COVID (about 2 weeks).

Now I have information in the attached PDF that Diabetics can take 2 grams per day, to see a benefit on lowering their blood sugars (and lowering their HbA1c test results). This appears to be much more than 3 drops. Can anyone tell me the best way to accurately measure 2 grams?

The attached document is from https://greenmedinfo.com/blog/16-more-reasons-black-seed-remedy-everything-death2, from 2013.

The point is the stuff tastes disgusting (as I found out with my 3 drops on the tongue), but to get the benefits I think it can be added to, let's say, a salad dressing. Or added to a cooked meal once it is on the plate. Thoughts?

seems like that would work - or - something like lemon water as a chaser to cut the taste

there are nigella oil capsules on the market too if you dislike the taste that much. also, nigella oil needs to be stored in the refrigerator because it tends to become rancid quickly otherwise - possibly the bad taste comes from that too. i have been using nigella oil for years and i never found the taste bad, just a bit strong and sharp until you get used to it, but i have been storing it cold once open. and i down a glass of water after it anyway because i take it with other herbs that are a bit bitter... maybe just drinking something after will do the trick for you too.
about the dosage, i dont know about the effect on diabetes, but to get the anti-inflammatory properties, i take 1tsp daily. that is around 4-5 ml, so 2.2ml would be half a teaspoon.
