The black seed (Nigella Sativa) sometimes as well referred to as black cumin or black sesame, has been know for centuries for its healing properties. The earliest recordings date back to the ancient Egyptian times. Black seed oil has been found in Tutankhamun’s tomb, which dates back about 3,300 years ago.
