Black Seed Oil, Nigella Sativa, can be traced back more than 3,000 years to the Assyrians and ancient Egyptians. Discovered in the tomb of King Tutankhamen, Black Seed Oil was reportedly used by Queen Nefertiti to maintain her exquisite complexion. Black Seed earned the Arabic approbation "habbatual barakah", the seed of blessing, for its powerful properties. Honey has traditionally been used to comfort and soothe skin. Honoring this collection’s skin-perfecting properties, our pattern symbolizes the tree of life rooting these time-tested ingredients to the long-established symbology of Ancient Egypt.
