History of Black Cumin Seeds

Black cumin seed has been medicinally revered for over 3000 years. Its wide range of healing properties has been recognized by a host of civilizations from the ancient Egyptians to prophet Mohammed.

It's no wonder that the founder of Islam regarded this exceptional seed as the most powerful healing substance available, saying: ...Indeed it has a remedy for every disease except death.

rainsoul from rain international Black Cumin seeds were found in the tomb of Egyptian Pharaoh Tutankhamum, who ruled Egypt from 1333 BC to 1324 BC. He was the son of Akhenaten and Nefertiti and his tomb is the most complete Egyptian tomb ever discovered. The Egyptians supposedly put the seeds in his tomb so that he may have excellent health in afterlife.

Out of several accompanying articles found in the tomb of Egyptian Pharaoh Tutankhamum were the seeds of Black cumin [Nigella sativa; (Zohary and Hopf. 2001)] not to be mistaken with common cumin seed (Cuminum cyminum). It is a spice that grows in the Mediterranean region and in Western Asian countries including India, Pakistan and Afghanistan. The historical references to these seeds are also found in some of the oldest religious and medical texts. For example, it is referred to as 'Melanthion' by Hippocrates and Dioscorides, while the Bible describes it as the (see Bible for the real word we can't put here)black cumin' (Isaiah 28:25, 27 NKJV). It is, therefore, no wonder that they were thought to be worthy accomplishments in the "From Life here to Eternity" by the pharaoh as described earlier.

The black cumin herb goes by many different names. For example, in old Latin it is called 'Panacea' meaning "cure all"' while in Arabic it is termed as 'Habbah Sawda' or 'Habbat el Baraka' translated as 'Seeds of blessing. In India it is called as Kalonji while in China it is referred as Hak Jung Chou (Aggarwat el al, 2008).

The plant belongs to the Ranunculaceae family of flowering plants and genius of about 14 species including Nigella arvensis, Nigella ciliaris, Nigella damascene, Nigella hispanica, Nigella intergrifolia, Nigella nigellastrum, Nigella orientalis and Nigella sativa, respectively. Among these, Nigella sativa is the species most exhaustively investigated for therapeutic purposes although other species have also been implicated for therapetic uses (Aggarwat el al, 2008).
