A Well Kept Secret

The Egyptians seem to have carried many secrets with them to their tombs. Secrets that allowed them to build the pyramids of Giza, facing north so precisely that modern engineers can’t explain it. Secrets that made them one of the most talked about and mysterious ancient civilization that we know of. With women whose beauty and power are still whispered about and turned into blockbuster films. 

If you’re familiar with any of these, then you know how far ancient Egypt’s reach dwells. 

  • • Cleopatra 
  • • Nefertiti 
  • • King Tutankhamen 
  • • The Mummy (including the one with Tom Cruise) 
  • • Egyptology (the kids book)

This fascinating ancient society created so many things that we use today (think, the wheel/math/writing/makeup). They got away with some of the most fascinating architecture we’ve ever seen. Things that we cannot comprehend being built without the right technology. 

This shows to tell that they probably knew what they were doing, and knew it well. 

An Untouched World

One of the most profound moments in modern Egyptology was the discovery of King Tutankhamen’s lavish tomb. This was monumental for modern history because this tomb had been untouched for 3,000 years. Completely in tact, unseen by human eyes…for THREE. Thousand. Years. 

One of the valuable things this young king was buried with, was black seed oil.

Today, in our modern labs scientists are discovering not only “slight” benefits of black seed oil but it’s ability to attack and eradicate cancer cells. From what we are starting to understand, black seed oil (due to the compound called Thymoquinone) simply brings the cell back to its healthy state. That’s the simple version. 

The Egyptians and ancient texts stated that this oil was “a cure for everything but death” (obviously didn’t make King Tut immortal 😅). If modern science isn’t enough for you (or too overwhelming), then trust the expertise of the people that understood a crazy amount about the world without our modern tools. 

If that doesn’t spark some intrigue, we don’t know what does.
