how to incorporate moringa oil into your beauty routine

The fresh, earthy smell of moringa oil perfectly complements its golden-green hue. It absorbs easily into the skin without clogging pores or leaving behind a greasy feeling. And because moringa’s leaves, seeds and pods are densely packed with vitamins, 8 essential amino acids, 46 anti-oxidants and numerous minerals, it’s an all round wonder oil, making it an essential addition to your beauty cabinet.

If you are new to using oils it can be tricky knowing exactly how to incorporate them into your beauty regime, but it’s worth it. Oils immediately penetrate the top layers of the skin - the epidermis - getting to work straight away on improving the lipid barrier function and improving hydration. The result is that your skin instantly feels softer and begins to glow. 

For daily cleansing:

  • Apply moringa oil to cotton wool and sweep across your face in circular motions to remove makeup and daily pollution

Or follow a simple 3 step process for a deep moringa oil cleanse:

  • Apply your oil to clean fingertips and gently massage into your whole face and neck in small, upward, circular movements
  • Wet a clean towel with warm water and massage the oil off of your face
  • If your skin needs a little more hydration, moisturize your face with a little more oil, or your favorite moisturizer

As a daytime moisturiser, moringa oil keeps skin hydrated and protected:

  • Add a few drops to your moisturiser for added hydration 
  • Apply directly to your skin under makeup

For nighttime serum it works to repair and restore the skin while you sleep:

  • After cleansing apply a few drops of moringa oil to your face and massage in as night treatment 

Apply directly to help aid the healing process:

  • Massage directly onto targeted areas to heal bites, burns, scrapes, scars and bruises

Use on bacterial infections and inflamed skin:

  • Apply directly onto acnes, eczema, psoriasis


  • Combine with sunscreen to protect skin from external pollutants and the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays or mixed in as a soothing after-sun cream


  • Massage into cuticles and nails to moisturise and strengthen nails
