Moringa is one of the most nutritious and useful plants in the world. Moringa seeds and trees are available for FREE at solTERRA Wellness and Bliss Store in downtown Palm Harbor, Florida. $5 donations are welcome.
Moringa, known as “The Tree of Life” has leaves that are high in many vitamins and minerals and one of only a few plants in the world that has all of the essential amino acids (proteins) that your body does not create on its own. The fresh leaves can be eaten raw, cooked, or dried. The leaves can be air dried in about 3 days and ground into a powder that is a potent source of vitamins, protein, and minerals(providing the minerals exist in the ground where the tree is growing in). I think of it as a multi-vitamin on a tree!
The tree produces flowers which change to pods containing seeds which are about 40% oil and can be pressed for a high quality, nutritious oil great for cooking, natural cosmetics, massage oils, soaps and many other products. The oil also has up to a 5 year shelf life which makes it excellent for fine machinery with small moving parts. Bio-fuels are also being developed from these little seeds.
The seed cake whether you mash fresh seeds or use the leftovers after pressing the oil, is a coagulant and a floculant and can be used to purify water. In fact, commercial applications for this are in final stages of development for large-scale water treatment facilities.
