History and Lore About Flax Seed:
Flax, also known as Linseed or Linum usitatissimum, has originated as a widespread crop throughout the Mediterranean, spreading from the Greek world all the way to India. A famed crop, particularly in Egypt, it has been used in the creation of linen for up to 5000 years. In antiquity, it was also so common and popular as to have been portrayed on the walls of temples and tombs in Thebes, where it was illustrated as a flowering plant. Indeed, the very use of flax for the purpose of creating linen is believed to date well beyond the written history of man, going so far back as the Neolithic period. Spiritually, perhaps due to the wealth brought in by the crop and the wellbeing it could provide to a community, Flax has long seen use in rituals prayers and spells that are seeking prosperity and healing, as well as protection.

In more modern study, flax has been shown to contain lignan and Omega-3 fatty acid. With the result being that flax seed may be of great benefit to the heart, helping to lower cholesterol, as well as lowering blood triglyceride and blood pressure levels. Flax has also shown of late to possibly possess anti-cancer properties, with some studies showing that they have aided in reducing the growth of certain types of tumors. Some recent studies have also shown that flax seed oil can aid in treating Crohn's Disease and Colitis, where it helps to heal the inner lining of inflamed intestines.
