Pure Moringa Seed Oil - 5mL
Moringa seed oil has been researched as a safe, edible oil rich in heart-healthy and anti-inflammatory benefits. A recent pilot study suggested that taking moringa seed oil sublingually at bedtime improved sleep quality and decreased the number of times people woke overnight. Read more here.
Each bottle of our pure, cold-pressed moringa seed oil is derived from about 170 moringa seeds grown sustainably on our small family farm in Kona. The edible oil is identical to our skincare oil, sans the one drop each of lavender and Frankincense essential oils per ounce. Neither contains any carrier oils.
The moringa seed oil comes from fully mature, brown pods whose seeds have reached their peak oil content. We cold-press these seeds on the farm. The oil is golden yellow in color and has a subtly sweet, almond-like flavor.
We ensure superior quality by meticulously controlling every step of the process from growing to harvesting to formulating. Our process begins under our feet with nutrient-rich compost created on our farm. We tend to our trees organically and cold-press the seeds to retain their natural benefits. We make all of our artisanal formulations by hand in small batches to ensure the highest quality for you.
All of our products are safe, non-toxic and vegan. They are formulated without parabens, phthalates, petroleum, synthetic fragrances or color.
Benefits of Moringa Seed Oil:
Anti-inflammatory: Moringa oleifera seed extract has more potent anti-inflammatory activity than turmeric's bioactive compound, curcumin, according to research.
Antioxidant-rich: Consuming Moringa oleifera seeds orally reduces the body's oxidative stress, according to one scientific study.
Antimicrobial: Moringa oleifera is a proven fighter of multiple types of harmful bacteria, viruses and fungi.
- Promotes Healthy Aging of the Skin: Moringa has been proven to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, while smoothing and softening skin.
- Acne Preventing: Moringa reduces acne by lessening inflammation and unwanted skin sebum, while being a proven fighter of bacteria.
- Deeply Moisturizing: Delivers fatty acids that absorb easily into the skin, leaving skin dewy, not greasy. Moringa's high levels of oleic acid are particularly well-suited for dry skin, locking in moisture and giving skin a natural glow.
- Nourishing: Moringa oil contains naturally high levels of skin-boosting vitamins A, C and E. They promote healthy skin cell production, increase collagen, brighten and evens skin tone and provide extra hydration. These antioxidants scavenge free radicals to protect against UV damage, toxins and pollution.
