First used in Ayurvedic medicine some 4,000 years ago, moringa seed oil comes from the moringa tree, which is native to northern India. It is known as the â??miracle treeâ?? due to its wide variety of beneficial uses. In Ayuveda, it is used as a natural antibiotic, an aid in childbirth and for treating liver problems. But that's not all. The oil was highly treasured by the ancient Roman, Greek and Egyptian civilizations for use in protecting the skin and making perfume. It was so good they even used it to create their own skin smoothing product.
