The historical significance of Black Seed as a healing herb spans over 3000 years, tracing back to the Assyrians and ancient Egypt. The oil derived from Black Seed was renowned as the "Pharaohs’ Oil," chosen as the preferred remedy for a multitude of ailments and infections. Over time, the use of Black Seed extended its influence across Africa and the Middle East. By the sixth century, its potency was acknowledged when the Prophet Muhammad proclaimed, "Hold on to the use of Black Seed for it has a remedy for every illness except death." This tradition transcended borders, evident in its therapeutic use across Ancient Greece, Rome, Persia, India, and China.

Legends such as Hippocrates, Dioscurides, and Avicenna celebrated Black Seed's preventive and curative capabilities. It even emerged as a cornerstone in Eastern medicine, particularly Ayurveda. Modern times have only deepened its significance; the World Health Organization recognizes Black Seed as a herbal medicine, and Western scientific research consistently corroborates its traditional efficacy.

At Shifa Lifeherbs, social responsibility isn't just a notion – it's a core value. Our dedication to enhancing lives extends through our highly effective product range and an allocation of a percentage of profits towards charitable endeavors. This has manifested in our commitment to rebuilding the lives of orphans affected by the devastating tsunamis of December 2004.

Our customers hold a special place in our heart, and we stand ready to offer unwavering advice and support whenever needed.
