Where Does Moringa Come From?
The Moringa tree is originally from Northern India, but it now grows throughout the tropics. Known in the world as the drum stick tree. Also known as the Miracle tree or the tree of life. It is considered to be a tropical, fast growing, drought tolerant, highly nutritious plant. The moringa seeds, to get started, only needs, darkness, warmth and moderate water. Within 3 to 5 days, sprouting should occur. At 4 to 6 months, a harvest from some 5 foot moringa trees should be implemented. Once mature, almost all parts of this tree can be used as food and/or medicine.
Moringa Through 4000 Years of History
The Moringa plant is native to Northern India, where it was first described around 2000 B.C. as a medicinal herb. The oral tradition of Ayurvedic medicine in India declared that Moringa prevents 300 diseases.
Ancient Egyptians treasured Moringa oil as protection for their skin from the ravages of desert weather.
Later, the Greeks found many healthful uses for Moringa and introduced it to the Romans.
Over the centuries, the Moringa plant has been carried to all the tropical parts of the world, where it readily takes root. It is commonly used for food, for medicinal purposes, as a wind-break in fields, and many other purposes.
It spread eastward form India to the lower parts of China, Southeast Asia and the Philippines. From India it also spread westward to Egypt, the Horn of Africa, around the Mediterranean, and finally to West Indies in America.
On the island of Jamaica in 1817, a petition concerning Moringa oil was presented to the Jamaican House of Assembly. It described the oil as being useful for salads and culinary purposes, and being equal to the best Florence oil as an illuminant--giving clear light without smoke.
