habbah Albarakah habbet il-baraka (Nigella sativa) حبه البركة

Yesterday, I bought habbet albaraakah  honey. It seems like It is the bees are fed on this flower of this plant. The taste is nicely good. If you are seeking this type of honey, leave a comment and I will answer you back.
This seed has a great history,Let me introduce some points that I found in Wiki. Ibn Sina, most famous for his volumes called The Canon of Medicine regarded by many as the most famous book in the history of medicine, refers to nigella as the seed that stimulates the body's energy and helps recovery from fatigue and dispiritedness and several therapeutic effects on digestive disorders, gynecological diseases and respiratory system have been ascribed to the seeds of N. sativa.

The seeds have been traditionally used in the Middle East and Southeast Asian countries to treat ailments including Asthma, Bronchitis, Rheumatism and related inflammatory diseases, to increase milk production in nursing mothers, to promote digestion and to fight parasitic infections. Its oil has been used to treat skin conditions such as eczema and boils and to treat cold symptoms. The many uses of nigella has earned for this ancient herb the Arabic approbation 'Habbatul barakah' meaning the seed of blessing.
