Recently earned my certificate in aromatherapy and am branching out with my carriers, picked this up the other and cannot say enough about it! Feels wonderful on my skin and has helped my dry cuticles quickly. In love!
Moringa (Moringa oleifera) is a must have for dry skin due to its HIGH OLEIC ACID composition. I first learned of Moringa oil from the book, Liquid Sunshine: Vegetable Oils for Aromatherapy. The author, Jan Kusmirek, boasts Moringa as a carrier superior to coconut, squalene (from olive), and even our beloved jojoba wax. It has been used in anti-aging formulations because it resists oxidization and has a quick absorbing silky feel. It is a true liquid above 72 degrees (approximation), but will thicken to a pudding consistency and appear milky when cooled (as shown in the product images).
I didn't provide a recipe on this carrier because it is amazing used alone.

First time using Moringa oil and I am so happy that I did. I have put it to the test for at least 30 days upon ordering to give an accurate review. My skin loves it! So healing and nourishing. Healed cuts quicker than normal. I will definitely keep this oil in my "tool box" of skincare. Pompeii Organics - thank you!
LOVE this oil! My first time using this oil and I fell in love with its texture. It is so silky smooth and absorbs beautifully into the skin. I will be back for more!
I bought this because I ran out of my other brand, which smelled a little on the natural leafy green scent, and when I came upon this one I thought let me see if has the same scent, which it doesn't, but it is still top quality. I didn't know Moringa can come in two forms, but it did wonders with our eczema troubled skin when just applying for the first time. I will be back for sure.
I have to say I love this oil. It does have an immediate effect on the skin. I have two children with eczema, and I cleansed their skin, and while the skin was wet applied this oil, and the appearance of their skin was remarkable. I had to keep applying throughout the day because I didn't want their skin to dry out. The next day of one day application. I was blown away. I wish I can send photos to show before and after. I will be purchasing again before I run out. The dropper with this bottle really help with how much I wanted to add to their skin. A little goes a long way.
