SOURCING

Nigella sativa seeds were said to have been found in King Tut’s tomb and have been used for thousands of years as a preservative, spice, and medicine. Our nigella seeds are sourced from an organic farm in central Egypt, where ancient canal systems divert the Nile’s waters to irrigate the fields. The seeds are harvested from capsules inside the Nigella sativa, an herbaceous annual flowering plant, when they bloom in the summer and are then sun-dried.

Our nigella seeds are grown to meet USDA Organic standards.
