This week's ingredient spotlight belongs to Moringa oil. Let's explore this wonderful oil and it's benefits.
What is Moringa oil?
Moringa, commonly called the drumstick tree, grows in Afghanistan, Bangladesh and India. The essential oil derived from the Moringa tree has been used for cultural and medicinal properties.
Moringa essential oil is rich in monounsaturated fats, behenic acid, vitamin B, vitamin C and oleic acid.
Speeds up wound healing
Moringa oil contains antiseptic and antibacterial properties that speed up the process of wound healing. It stimulates blood flow to the affected area and protects the wound from getting secondary infections.
Moisturizes Dry Skin
Applying Moringa oil to your skin unlocks its moisturizing and emollient properties, which can help the skin retain moisture and prevent inflammation or flaking.
Speeds up wound recovery
Using Moringa oil when you have suffered a scrape, wound, bruise or abrasion can stimulate blood flow to the area, as well as protect the wound from infection. This oil can also help counter fungal infections or open wounds from acne, which can easily become infected or exacerbated by dust, grime, and oil.
Hair and scalp care
Moringa oil can stimulate the growth of hair, while also protecting against hair loss. The emollient, antioxidant, and antibacterial properties of the oil are able to protect the scalp and keep it moisturized, thereby limiting or eliminating dandruff. Furthermore, the rich supply of fatty acids can improve the shine and luster of your hair.
