We all have different issues with our skin and when it is dry it seems each of us has to find our own cure. I battle dry skin mostly in the winter. It doesn’t matter how much water I drink, I dry out and become itchy if I don’t take care of it. This has been a challenge for me, living naturally.
I have tried all the usual oils. Coconut oil works great in the summer but it does very little for my dry skin in the winter. Olive oil carries an odor and gets on my clothes. Sesame oil also soaks into my clothing using the amount I need to use. Pure Vitamin E and Castor oil are too sticky. Many oils claiming to be the answer to dry skin are too expensive. In years past I have had to use the most natural moisturizers I could find in formulated lotions. There are only a couple deemed “natural” that are truly mostly natural and are affordable enough for full body moisturizing and then there are still one or two ingredients I really don’t want to use.
Just this year I discovered Moringa oil. It is 100% pure oil from pressed Moringa seeds. The bottles are only 4oz but it doesn’t take much to completely moisturize. It soaks in, leaving my skin smooth and soft and does not get on my clothes whatsoever. (I buy it through Amazon)
GIVE IT A TRY!
Moringa oil comes from the seeds of the Moringa tree. This tree is also known as the horseradish or drumstick tree. It grows throughout Africa, Arabia, and Northern India up through the Himalayan region of Asia. You can find plantations of Moringa as well as Moringa growing in the wild.
Every part of the Moringa tree has been used to make medicine for centuries, although it is relatively new to the west. Those in the medical industry in the U.S. have already begun to spread rumors and distribute warnings as scare tactics to those seeking to use Moringa for healing purposes.
Moringa has many healing powers due to its intense nutrient density. It contains large quantities of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, anti-inflamatories, and amino acids. It has been used to cure almost everything. Aid organizations have used it’s leaves as a source of nutrition and to feed starving people. It has been used to cure cancers and diabetes among just about everything else.
I have researched Moringa quite fairly and there is a TON to know about it. If you wish to read more detailed information about Moringa, I have found a source that has an extensively researched web page due to the fact they sell Moringa producs. I have never purchased from them nor am I suggesting that anyone does. Their products do seem to be all natural and of good quality but pricey (Which may be worth it if you are wanting to use them for healing purposes. I would research the company a bit more.) I am placing their link here because their information seems to be comprehensive of the subject, accurate, clear and concise coinciding with what I have also found as far as studies and documented uses.
