Moringa Face & Body Oil
Moringa Face & Body Oil
We will be reformulating this oil with several other herbs. This will be released this spring!
The Moringa Oleifera tree is a beautiful tree indigenous to India. It is an important tree in their culture and provides not only sustenance but also has a place in skincare. Every part of the tree is edible including the bark, roots, leaves, flowers, beans, and bean pods. Every part of the tree is useful.
Our love of the Moringa began long ago after learning about it through ayurvedic skincare. We harvest this from a neighboring property that is free of pesticides and any other toxic sprays.
The Moringa tree is extremely high in nutrients, vitamins, amino acids and antioxidants. The Moringa also contains plant hormones called cytokinin's which makes it a strong proponent for promoting cellular growth, fighting inflammation, redness, irritations, bacteria and oxidative stress. It's also high in behenic acid which is beneficial for fine lines and wrinkles. The Moringa is a healing and sustainable tree with many uses.
After hand picking the leaves, flowers and stems we dry them for several weeks. Then we start with an alcohol extraction of the leaves, stems and flowers for several days (there is no alcohol left remaining in the final product). It is then infused slowly over low heat into Organic cold pressed Jojoba oil for several hours. This process transforms the oil into a bright green color, this process allows us to extract as much of the alcohol and oil soluble constituents of the Moringa into the Jojoba oil. That means that this is a very potent Moringa oil. Wonderful for any skin type and suitable for use anywhere on the body including the hair, scalp, face, and body. Moringa is slightly astringent which makes it an excellent oil cleanser and will not leave a greasy feeling on the skin. Those with oily skin types would greatly benefit from this oil.
This comes in a 2 ounce recyclable glass dropper bottle, and has a very herbaceous, nutty and earthy scent. This will not stain your skin. Start with several drops and rub in very well. Pair with one of our hydrosols to impart intense moisture.
Ingredients: Moringa Oleifera Leaves, Flowers, Stems, Organic Cold pressed Jojoba Oil
Our leave on products and our soaps
We choose to utilize what is minimally processed for our leave on skin products. We also thoughtfuly curate our formulas to provide the most benefits directly to the skin barrier. This means we do not ever use fragrance oils or essential oils in our leave on products. We do love to use them in our soap products. Check them out here: Soaps
