Moringa Oil has become a must have in the facial serums that I make for myself. There are so many wonderful benefits to Moringa Oil and it is perfect for aging mature skin! A little goes a long way with this oil and 4 ounces should last quite some time. Applying one drop for each hand is enough to soften and moisturize your cuticles. I took one drop of this oil and applied it to each of my fingernails on one hand. It absorbed wonderfully as I massaged it into each cuticle. Once it was fully absorbed my fingers felt soft and silky with no greasy or oily residue. There was also no greasy or oily residue left behind on anything I touched afterward as well. It is hard to describe exactly how your skin looks and feels after applying it, but it is amazing! This Moringa Oil has an herbal scent that is not overwhelming and could be easily covered by adding an essential oil blend if you wanted. I use it both ways and actually enjoy the herbal scent on its own.
Very moisturizing and surprisingly not at all greasy! I was skeptical that it was going to leave a greasy residue behind and it didn't!! It absorbed quickly. I was also surprised that it didn't have more of a floral fragrance. I had purchased some moringa products from a body products retailer that I love and the fragrance was wonderful. I kind of thought it would be at least somewhat similar. The fragrance of this product is very light, almost non-existent, and not nearly so floral. It's more like the seeds of the moringa, I think. It smells more earthy than I expected. It moisturizes very well. The bottle suggests that it can be used as a make-up remover. I think I will try it as an ingredient in my DIY make-up remover. I have so far only used it on dry skin but I am also eager to try it on my damp skin just out of the shower. I think that will be an especially nice treat with hot summer weather coming on and my skin drying out.
Recently, I have been learning to simplify my life, which includes the daily skin care routine. Back to the basic, I have gradually switched my skin care products to as natural and as simple as I can. One of the approaches was to make my own moisturizer. For I used to have toner, serum, moisturizer to complete the whole routine, but I plan to combine serum and moisturizer into one. To combine facial serum and moisturizer into one, I need to have good base oil. This oneness base oil must be a very nourish and gentle characteristics. At some point, I came across this Miracle in the Garden 100% Pure Moringa Oil. Moringa oil is extracted from the seeds of Moringa oleifera, also known as the Drumstick tree. Moringa oil possessed many therapeutic properties, like antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, anti-microbial, and emollient are among them. No wonder I chose this oil.
It has a NATURAL (wood) smell, We used on our eczema toddler and it keeps hydrates skin after bath,but I was expecting more based on the price!... but I will keep using it.
