Black seed has been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years. It has been so important in the healing process that it is known as “the remedy for everything but death.”

Black seed is the seed of the annual flowering Nigella Sativa plant of the Ranunculaceae (buttercup) family. The Nigella Sativa plant is thought to originate in south western Asia and grows to 5-24 inches in height.

The Nigella Sativa plant has pale blue and white flowers of five to ten petals and produces a fruit containing the black seed.

The earliest known cultivation of Nigella Sativa was found in ancient Egypt dating back more than 3 thousand years ago, where black seed oil was found in the Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamun’s tomb.

The ancient Egyptians understood the value of the black seed and considered it a panacea. It is narrated in [Saheeh al-Bukharee (5687)] in the 700s A.D. that the prophet Muhammad said the “This black seed is a cure for every disease except death.”

Nigella Sativa is cultivated in Arabia, Bangladesh, Egypt, Ethiopia, France, Germany, India, Middle East, Russia, and Turkey.

It has been used by many cultures for its healing properties and is known by many names including: black cumin, black caraway, fennel flower, Habbat-ul-Baraka, Roman coriander, and nutmeg flower.

Nigella Sativa is referred to as black cumin, but the names black cumin, black caraway, and blackseed are also names used to identify the Bunium persicum and Bunium bulbocastanum species.

If you are going to purchase black seed make sure it is Nigella Sativa. Where to Buy Black Seed?
