Moringa is called “Nebedaye”, which means “never die” In many African languages.
The Moringa plant is native to Northern India, where it was first described around 2000 BC as 'The Miracle Tree'.
The Moringa tree spread eastward from India to the lower parts of China, Southeast Asia and the Philippines. It spread from India westward to Egypt, the Horn of Africa, around the Mediterranean, and finally to West Indies in America.
Ancient egyptians valued Moringa oil, and used it to resist the ravages of the desert. Later, the Greeks found many healthful uses for Moringa and introduced it to the Romans.
On the Island of Jamaica in 1817, 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 a light giver – without smoke.
The moringa tree is grown mainly in semi-arid, tropical, and subtropical areas. While it grows best in dry, sandy soil, it tolerates poor soil. It is a fast-growing, drought -resistant tree.
Also called Horseradish tree, Drumstick tree, Marango, Mlonge, Mulangay, Malungay, Malunggay, Saijhan, Shevaga, Sajna, Kamungay and Mother’s Best Friend.
