While most people know the Moringa oleifera tree as a food, there are also hundreds of ways to utilize the healing properties of the plant in beauty applications. From conditioning your scalp, soothing cracked cuticles, and reducing the appearance of stretch marks, it’s no wonder that Moringa is often referred to as a “cure all.” Find out how you can implement this all-natural product into your everyday beauty routine.
Condition Your Hair
For dry, lackluster hair, a few drops of Moringa oleifera oil in your favorite all-natural shampoo will condition your hair, leaving your locks feeling soft and moisturized. Gently massage the oil into your scalp with the shampoo and then rinse.
Alternatively, the oil can be applied directly to the scalp when your hair is dry. This can be repeated weekly as a deep conditioning treatment, or applied nightly for extra moisturizing benefits. Just wash it out in the morning with an all-natural shampoo and then style as usual.
Soothe Cracked Cuticles
In arid climates, the cuticles can become dry, cracked, and sometimes even painful. Soothe those unsightly cuticles by applying a drop of Moringa oil onto each nail and gently massaging it in. You can repeat this method twice per day for soft, smooth cuticles.
Tame Flyaway Hair
If you don’t have time for a deep conditioning treatment and need a quick fix for your frizz, tame flyaway hairs with Moringa oleifera oil. Add a drop or two in the palm of your hands and rub them together. Gently slide hands over your hair to smooth out any frizz. You can repeat this as needed, but be sure not to use too much, as it could make your hair appear oily.
If you accidentally use too much oil, you can use this all-natural cornstarch baby powder to absorb some of the excess.
Cleanse Your Hair and Body Naturally
Moringa oil has antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties, so it makes a gentle, all-natural hair and body wash. Mummy Miracle’s Moringa Baby Shampoo & Wash is gentle on infants, children, and adults, and can be used on any hair type. Use it to gently cleanse the hair of any dirt and debris, without any harsh chemicals.
Reduce Appearance of Stretch Marks
If you have deep, red or purple stretch marks and are looking to reduce the appearance of them, try this Stretch Mark Oil. Dry skin isn’t as elastic as moisturized skin, so keeping the skin moisturized can reduce the appearance of stretch marks and prevent new ones from forming.
Create a Moisturizing Mask
Moringa Leaf Powder can be used in several beauty applications, even in creating a facial mask for skin care. Combine your favorite all-natural facial cream and apply a few drops of oil into the cream and then use it to moisturize your face.
Absorb Oil from The Skin
Instead of traditional talc powders, you can use Mummy’s Miracle Moringa Baby Powder to absorb oil from your skin. This powder utilizes moringa oil to also soothe the skin.
Moringa oleifera is not only a superfood, but it’s also a super plant in general, thanks to its many different uses. From nutrition to all-natural beauty applications, this plant deserves the term, “Miracle Tree.”
