Moringa Carrier Oil
Cold Pressed. Moringa oil is a very stable carrier that’s highly nutritious to the skin and similar in composition to olive oil, but is much lighter in inconsistency and therefore far more practical to use for beauty purposes. This quality alone makes it ideal for use in skin care, hair care and massage treatments. But there’s more . . .
This amazing carrier oil has a ‘dry’ feel that delivers outstanding moisturising and nourishing skin beautifying nutrients that are quickly and easily absorbed, leaving skin feeling silky soft and smooth. This explains why it is one of the most sought after oils to include in the formulations of high quality skin care products.
Moringa Oil is one of the earliest oils known to mankind, and was known as ‘oil of behen, or ben’ to the ancient Egyptians and Romans who used it when making perfumes and in the preparation of ointments to treat infections, wrinkles and dry skin. Its healing properties were described in Book XII of Pliny's Natural History.
Please note; because this oil is unrefined and so rich in essential fatty acids, it tends to form crystals or even solidify when stored at cool temperatures. Simply warming the oil gently will return the oil to it's normal liquid form without causing any harm to it.

Good products. Good quality. Seem "stronger" than some of the other essential oils I've ordered (this is good).

The Rose that I ordered, seemed stronger, more intense is probably more accurate, than some of the other rose that I've ordered. Good response to questions via email. Delivery to the Midwest of the USA took 9 days, which is quite reasonable. Nice selection.
