  • Inner purification and detox of body.

Ibn Sina in describing the black seed as that which “stimulates the body’s energy and helps recovery from fatigue or disspiritedness,” still holds true for Tibb (Islamic Medicine) health practitioners today. The rich nutritional value contained in black seed as outlined by scientific analysis of black seed, also points to it as a great source of energy.

Black Seed in the Bible
The earliest written reference is in the book of Isaiah in the Old Testament where it is referred as “ketzah” a spice for bread and cakes that can be used in many ways. Easton’s bible dictionary clarifies that the Hesbrew word for black cumin, ketsah, refers to the nigella sativa. Isaiah compares the reaping of black cumin with wheat. “For the black cumin is not threshed with a threshing sledge, nor is a cart wheel rolled over the cumin, but the black cumin is beaten out with a stick, and the cumin with a rod.”(Isiah 28:25,27 NKJV).

Assyrian Herbal book 
An Assyrian Herbal book explains black cumin seed as a remedy internally for stomach problems and externally for eyes, ears mouth and many skin problems, e.g. itching, rashes, sores, and herpes.

Ancient Egypt
Not only was the oil of black cumin found in Tutankhamen’s tomb, which indicates that it formed part of the carefully entombed items to assist a king in the afterlife also seeds with honey were found in the tomb which are still usable. It is also known to have been used by Cleopatra for it’s health and beauty giving qualities. Queen Nefertiti, praised for her exquisite complexion, was an avid user of black cumin seed oil. Physicians in Pharaohs’ times used black seed as a remedy for colds, headaches, digestive disorders, toothaches, infections, inflammatory disorders and allergies.

Used by Naturopaths
Hippocrates (5th century B.C.) regarded nigella sativa which he referred to as as a valuable remedy in hepatic and digestive disorders. In the first century it was used extensively by Pliny the elder in his “Naturalis Historia” (Natural History) who referred to it as “Git”. His list of remedies include the treatment of snakebites and scorpion stings, calosites, old tumours, abscesses, and skin rashes. A series of remedies against colds and inflammations in the area of the head are recommended (which appeared almost unchanged in the large German medicinal plant encyclopedias of the 16th to 18th centuries).

A short time later it was used by the Greek physician Dioscoredes, who described the plant clearly under the name of melanthion in his 5-volume pharmacology “De Materia Medica” which was used as a reference for healing with herbs into the Middle Ages, he used black cumin seed to treat headaches, nasal congestion, toothache and intestinal parasites. They were also used, he reported, as a diuretic to promote menstruation and increase milk production. Dioscoredes was to influence the homeopathic master’s of modern time.

Research and Analysis 
Although Black seed oil was used by ancient cultures for thousands of years, only in the last century has it been possible to study it's actions. A great deal of the studies dealt with the volatile oil of the seeds and its major constituents. These studies showed a multi-range of actions that covered almost all known ailments of man in the various body systems. It is the aromatic oils that contain most of the anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, anti-fungal and immune-enhancing activity. The analysis of the volatile oil (essential oil) content in the blessed seed reveals chemical compounds that have been proven to exert all of these actions.

  • Cymene: Known to have been used for its local analgesic actions, in rheumatic conditions.
  • Pinene: When taken internally has mild expectorant and colic properties and when used externally has similar actions to Cymene.
  • Carbony: Responsible for the antiseptic and anti-microbial properties of the seed. Extensive microbiological tests have confirmed its action against gram-positive as well as gram-negative organisms.
  • Carvone: Known for its anti-colic and flatulence properties.
  • Limonene Reported to be effective in the treatment of gallstones.
  • Nigellon semohiprepinon: When inhaled or rubbed on the chest, it enlarges the bronchi, dissolves cramps and raises their temperature which quickly alleviates symptoms due to bronchial asthma and whooping cough. Also inhibits the release of histamine.
  • Thymoquinone: Inhibits infection, relieves pain, stimulates the gall bladder and works as an anti oxidant.

The volatile oil in the has scientifically shown to lower blood pressure.
