Beauty treats for me: Wikaniko Moringa oil

Published April 7, 2017 by Bizzimummy

Before receiving a bottle of this stuff to try out, I had never heard of Moringa or Moringa oil before. 

Moringa oil comes from the seeds of the Moringa oleifera tree, a fast growing leafy tree species native to the Himalayas but found in many other parts of the world. The seeds, harvested from their pods, yield approximately 35–40% of non-drying Moringa oil, also known as Ben oil or Behen oil.

Moringa seed oil is clear and smells nutty. Thanks to the numerous antioxidants in it, the oil does not become rancid for several years after it is produced. This makes it very much sought after for a number of health and beauty applications.
Moringa oil has so many benefits including anti aging and wrinkle reduction, dandruff reduction, hair and scalp hydration, dry flaking skin conditions, acne, dry lips, blackheads, bruises, cuts, blemishes, even sunburn  and many other uses. It is found in many beauty products, soaps, shampoo, balms, body wash, perfume, make up and much more.

Although the oil is viable for use as a cooking oil, its high demand and low levels of production do not make it conducive for every day use as a dietary product. However, small amounts of oil are often used in recipes. Moringa oil is also occasionally used as a dressing for vegetables, salads, and other green dishes.
My bottle of Moringa oil come from Wikaniko who grow their own plants specially to avoid any sort of product contamination which is often found in products from other places. 

The bottle is minimal design and there is no extra unnecessary packaging which is always a good thing. I did find the oil had a really strange and unusual smell, more woody than nutty and a bit like pencil sharpener shavings. I have used the oil for both skin and hair. It can be used alone or mixed with body lotions and moisturisers which may be easier with it being an oil. For my hair I apply it mainly to the ends which are always dry.

Wikaniko Moringa oil is £16.95 for 100ml and comes with a multitude of useful uses.
