What's so special about moringa oil for natural medicine? Well, @artemislives will tell you all about it. She shares her excitement over finding fresh young morninga pods while describing how she'll use them, while also reminding us that sourcing ingredients locally and sustainably matters. Her efforts to provide a viable income stream for vulnerable indigenous mountain people resonates with me deeply. How about you? Check out her post Moringa Pods Are Here! - Natural Medicine for My Body... and My Business. She writes:
DELIGHTED that the moringa oil natural medicine is visibly on its way. The pods need another month or so of serious dry season heat to grow the seeds to maturity. When the first pods are deep dark brown and start to split open, that's the PERFECT time to harvest the ripe pods, bursting with their seeds. Each pod carries upwards of a dozen seeds which grow quite large, and it is these ripe seeds which we will cold-press for our Magic Moringa Oil.
This week natural dental care came up several times in the #naturalmedicine feed. Do you practice natural dentistry? Would you like to delve deeper into it? Do you have a great natural dentistry recipe you'd like to share? Tell us about it in the comments!
Garlic, Turmeric, coconut oil, oregano oil and one special ingredient. Those 5 above. MAN! They're absolute saviors that everyone should have in their home at all times.
When any of us have any kind of infection, my first instinct always calls for garlic.
I can't repeat this enough: garlic is one of the best natural antibiotics to have around.
Cardamom not only adds a pleasant and fresh breath, but also it provides antioxidant substances, improves digestive system, detoxify our body, and ....maaaaany other beneficial effects. I’m just talking about a total vegetal treasure.
Even more Natural Medicine Goodness
