The incredible, editable tree of life.


The incredible, editable tree of life.

Ever wish you could have a magic wand to wave so your health, skin and hair would look fabulous? Yeah, we do too, but we have been using a plant that comes pretty darn close. Moringa oleifra, or drumstick tree, is native to the Himalayan region of India and can grow well in tropical and subtropical areas of the world. This plant is becoming known as the tree of life and for very good reasons; it is packed full of nutrients for your body, skin and hair. Most of the tree is editable; leaves, mature seeds, oil pressed from the seeds, seed pods, roots and it’s flowers.

Moringa leaves are the most nutritious part of the plant containing B vitamins, vitamin C, beta-carotene, vitamin K, protein, manganese and more. Moringa leaves can be cooked like any other leafy green or dried and drank as a tea or added to sauces and soups. The seeds can be prepared and eaten like peas or nuts while the drumsticks (seed pods) can be parboiled and added to meals. Even after cooked they still remain high in vitamin C, fiber, potassium, magnesium and manganese.

Moringa oil helps to remove wrinkles and prevent sagging skin. This oil is great for removing black heads and clearing up skin rashes and irritants. Like many plant oils, you can use this on your hair to moisturize the scalps, clear up dandruff and strengthen hair. Just like the rest of the plant, the oil is edible helping to give your body more energy, lowering blood pressure and protects bones.

I can keep writing about this amazing tree of life, but you’ll just have to buy it and see for yourself!

Live well!
