Fennel Flower (Nigella sativa), also know as Nutmeg Flower, Black Caraway, Roman Coriander and Black Cumin, is a annual flowering plant in the Buttercup family (Ranunculaceae), native to northern Africa and Turkey. It is being cultivated throughout the Middle Eastern region, growing to 20 – 30 cm (8–12in) tall, with finely divided, linear (but not thread-like) leaves. The flowers are delicate, and usually pale blue and white, with five to ten petals. The fruit is a large and inflated capsule composed of three to seven united follicles, each containing numerous seeds. The seed is used as a spice. They are frequently referred to as Black Cumin (Kala Jeera), but Black Cumin is different from Fennel Flower. Fennel Flower has a pungent bitter taste and smell. It is used primarily in confectionery and liquors.

Fennel Flower seems to have a wide range of medicinal uses, ranging from diabetes to immune system deficiencies to cancer. In the US, Fennel Flower has been popular for some time; it is available as a food supplement. It is rich in unsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids like linolic acid and gamma linolic acid, which are as critical for a balanced hormone system as vitamins and minerals. Fennel Flower has beneficial effects on neurodermatitis, (see also Borage / Borago officinalis and Evening Primrose / Oenothera biennis), menopausal disorders, (chronic) headaches, asthma, allergies, diabetes and even cancer.

The well known positive effect of Fennel Flower on the gastro-intestinal tract may be explained by the bio-active substance carvone, a essential oil which stimulates the stomach but relaxes the intestines, reducing bloating and promoting a healthy intestinal flora. This in turn may reduce allergic reactions and help with pollen allergies, asthma and flu-like symptoms. And since disorders of the digestive system often also affect the heart and circulatory system, Fennel Flower may also be helpful in this area.

Furthermore, Fennel flower helps to restore the functions of the liver and gall bladder; the immune system is stimulated and blood sugar levels are balanced.

With regard to its therapeutical value in treating cancer, we are quoting the Cancer Immuno-Biology Laboratory of South Carolina:“Nigella sativa extract helps in stimulating bone marrow and immune cell production. It increases production of interferon and protects cells from viral attacks; it destroys tumoral cells and increases (anti-body producing) B cells. All observed actions make Nigella sativa a critical component of cancer prevention and treatment.“ The findings of the German immunologist Peter Schleicher, MD, seem to corroborate the US-research: “Fennel Flower oil provides the organism with important, polyunsatursated fatty acids, which promotes the synthesis of immune system regulating substances such as prostaglandin E1. Linoleic acid stabilizes cell membranes and prostaglandin has pronounced anti-inflammatory properties. Together, they inhibit many disease-causing immune-system reactions and prevent the onset of many chronic diseases, from acne to hay fever to cancer.“

Schleicher also investigated the mechanism by which Fennel Flower mediates allergic reactions. He found that it reduces T-cell response and anti-body production, regulates the disproportionate immune system response and degranulation of mast cells. In studies with over 600 patients (sufferers of pollen and dust allergies as well as asthma patients and patients with a generally weakened immune system), Schleicher observed that over 70% of the participants experienced a complete remissal of their symptoms after treatment with Egyptian Fennel Flower.

History: The earliest written reference to Fennel Flower is thought to be in the book of Isaiah in the Old Testament, where the reaping of Nigella and wheat is contrasted (Isaiah 28: 25, 27). Easton's Bible dictionary states the Hebrew word ketsah refers to Fennel Flower; according to Zohary and Hopf, Fennel Flower was another traditional condiment of the Old World during classical times; its black seeds were extensively used to flavor food.

Dosage

Take 1-2 capsules three times daily 15 minutes before meals. To increase effectiveness in treatment of intestinal parasites, combine with Tea Tree oil (Melaleuca alternifolia). Fennel Flower may be taken over prolonged periods of time, e.g. in programs of 3-6 months at a time.
Also recommended 3 x daily of 5-10 Drops of the oil.
