Black Seed in Ancient Egypt
The use of Black Seed as a spice and a healing plant can be traced back to ancient Egypt. There, it was a vital ingredient in many dishes. The personal doctors of the pharaohs always had a bowl of Black Seeds handy, to use as a digestive aid after extensive dinners and as an effective medicine for colds, headaches, toothaches, and infections. In the grave of the pharaoh Tutankhamun archaeologists found a bottle of this ancient medicine-in preparation for life after death.
