"Black Seed is one of the oldest medicinal plants known in human history. It was used by the Assyrians long before the Egyptians who also used it. A vial of Black Seed oil was found in King Tut's tomb. The book of Isaiah in the Old Testament talks about it. Various medieval herbals extolled its virtues but its biggest supporter was probably the founder of Islam, Muhammed, who said "Black Seed will cure anything...except death." Today it is called the "Seed of Blessing" in the Middle East because of its usefulness in so many conditions.
Traditional uses (among about 50 in the Arabic texts) include everything from increasing mother's milk and decreasing impotence to expelling worms!"
