Moringa oleifera

For centuries, the natives of northern India have known of the many benefits of Moringa oleifera. Its uses are as unique as the names it is known by, such as Horseradish tree and Drumstick tree (referring to the large drumstick shaped pods) and in East Africa it is called "Mother's best friend”. In Haiti it is referred to as Biolive (due to the oil extracted from the seeds)

Moringa has many uses, the leaves can be:

• Added to dishes like salads and soups.
• Brewed into a delicious tea with Moringa Tea Powder.
• Added to your favorite dip or sauce to give it a nutritional boost.
• Use natural and body-friendly cosmetic products like:

b.Moringa Deodorant, Moringa Lip Balm and Moringa soap.
c.Moringa Oil is good for the body, inside and out!



Moringa seeds contain oil that can be used for cooking. It has a pleasant nutty taste, and does not become rancid.

Instructions for extracting the oil:

  • Lightly fry the seeds in a saucepan.
  • Crush or pound the seeds thoroughly.
  • Place the seed mash in boiling water.
  • The oil will rise to the surface, where you can skim it off the top

The seed cake left over after extracting oil can be used as a protein-rich plant fertilizer and can also be used for water purification.

An age-old method 'Purifying Water With Moringa' oleifera seeds is demonstrated in this YouTube video.
