Black Seed Oil: a Remedy for every Illness except Death.
History tells of a marvel of the ancient world. A simple seed that was considered "a remedy for every illness except death". King Tut was buried with jars of these "magical" seeds. Queen Cleopatra and Nefertiti used the oil to maintain their beauty. Hippocrates wrote glorious essays to their incredible healing abilities. Ancient Greek and Persian Doctors wrote extensive medical tomes about this tiny seed.
This amazing healer is called "Black Seed", also named Nigele or Black Cumin- Nigella Sativa.
This tiny unassuming looking seed has been used for thousands of years to cure just about everything. But this isn't just an old wives tale! In his study: “Nigella Sativa Seeds: Folklore Treatment in Modern Day Medicine” Mohammad Tariq, notes the use of Black Seeds for the treatment for a vast assortment of illnesses.
In our modern times, medical researchers, scientists and doctors are doing a stunning amount of research into Black Seed- as a matter of fact, US National Library of Medicine- National Institutes of Health, have published over 750 studies that have been done on Nigella Sativa.
