DESCRIPTION

Known as the 'Miracle Tree', all parts of the fascinating Moringa Tree are used for their nutritive and medicinal properties. The seeds in particular contain around 40% oil, the use of which has been documented by ancient cultures such as the Romans and Egyptians. The Egyptians held the oil in especially high regard and even placed vases of it in their tombs. This is probably due to the long shelf life that the oil possesses, a property they may have wished to impart upon the spirit of the recently deceased.
 
Moringa oil is light and spreads easily on the skin yet is extremely rich in fatty acids and antioxidants particularly Vitamin A. It is also known an Behen oil, a name given to one of it's most important constituents Behenic Acid. Behenic acid is used in hair conditioners and moisturisers to enhance their smoothing effect. It's consistency and mild aroma make it a useful oil for many cosmetic preparations and it is also know as a natural fixative, helping to stabilise volatile fragrances.
 

SUGGESTED USES

Skin: Vit A, fixative

    I have purchased this oil over and over as I just love it for my whole body, including my face. I have very sensitive skin, prone to break out, and this is so healing and nourishing. I highly recommend trying it!

    Super fast delivery and excellent packaging. Thank you. So far have only tried the oil on my hands and it is very light and easily absorbed. Nice mild green/earthy smell too. Looking forward to trying it on my face and have high hopes as I have done A LOT of research on this product and it's many uses...in fact I'm even growing Moringa

    Just received my order of this beautiful oil, nicely packaged in a dark glass easy to pour bottle. Lovely on skin especially when infused with some essential oils.

    This oil is awesome! Fantastic for perfume oils, and has a really mild smell, and a nice feel when applied to my skin. Thanks for another top quality, and hard to find oil!
