Also known as Nigella Sativa, Fennel flower and Black Caraway (to name a few from a very long list).

Found in the tomb of Tutankhamun (placed there to grant him strength in the afterlife), Black cumin seed is more often than not associated with being from Egypt but it is actually indigenous to south west Asia. Regardless, it has long been used for an incredible variety of ailments, the world over.
Incredibly, in spite of its notoriety, the seed itself only started being explored scientifically around forty years ago. Since then, there have been hundreds of studies, each discovering a few more of the secrets hidden behind its dark shell.
