Moringa seed oil is clear and odorless. Thanks to the numerous antioxidants in it, the oil does not become rancid for several years after it is produced. This makes it sought after for a number of health and beauty applications.

Although the oil is viable for use as a cooking oil, its high demand and low levels of production do not make it conducive for every day use as a dietary product. However, small amounts of oil are often used in recipes calling for a rich, nutty flavor, such as stir-fried dishes and marinades. Moringa oil is also occasionally used as a dressing for vegetables, salads, and other green dishes.

You can extract oil from moringa seeds by pressing or mashing the seeds and boiling them in water. When you boil it the oil floats to the top of the water where it can be scooped off and used for cooking or lubrication. You can dry, crush and powder the mashed seed and use it for purifying water.

Cold pressed oil from moringa seeds is long lasting with a shelf life of around 5 years. It is used in cosmetics as a skin conditioner, as a cooking oil and for lubrication

The fine oil that can be extracted from mature Moringa seeds is a valuable oil, commonly called BEN OIL. It has been used for centuries, as cooking oil, but it also has many other interesting uses. If you have lots of Moringa seeds, you can make your own oil.

The oil is taken from mature Moringa seeds, which are actually about 40% oil. Good Moringa oil smells fresh, slightly like the fresh leaves, and has a beautiful golden hue. Slow to become
rancid, it can be kept at room temperature for long time.
