How to make Moringa Oil

1. Crush the seeds

2. Add 10% by volume of water

3. Heat gently over a low fire for 10–15 minutes, taking care not to burn the seed.

4. After boiling, strain through a cloth into a clean container. Leave overnight to allow the oil to separate from the water. There may be some debris floating on the surface of the oil. Success...


After the oil is extracted, the rather bitter tasting presscake still has all the properties of fresh seed in treating and cleaning water. With a 60% protein content, it may be used as a soil fertiliser. This is a very important point. Moringa seeds can be used first for oil extraction, without reducing their effectiveness for water treatment.
