Organic Black Seed Oil
Black seed oil has a long history both medicinally and spiritually dating back 3000 years. This powerful seed and the oil it contains has been used and spoken about from Hippocrates to Cleopatra and has also been referenced in some of the oldest herbal books in history, including the Bible.
Black seed oil was also found in Tutankhamen’s tomb because it was believed to be important in the afterlife. When the tomb was resumed there were seeds found in the tomb preserved in honey and it was said to still be edible. This powerful seed not only has the history, but also has modern science to back it up.
Black seed (also known as nigella seeds) is a member of the buttercup family and its seeds are dark, thin, and crescent shaped with approximately 100 nutritional chemical constituents present (new nutritional compounds are still being identified). One of the constituents that has been studied by modern science as a major player in this food is thymoquinone.
