Moringa Leaf Powder is a natural caffeine-free way to boost your energy and increase your body’s nutrients intake. It is packed with essential vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants, minerals, protein, Omega 3, 6 & 9, to name just a few. It is a powerful superfood with many health benefits. Moringa powder aids with detoxification and digestion, and is also a mild laxative. This powder is also a great source of Iron (more than spinach), so, vegetarians – rejoice!
The super fine Moringa powder is great for adding to your food or drinks, although it does not dissolve at all. It does have a very strong grassy-herbal taste and smell, so if you’re not a fan of that, mixing it into a delicioius smoothie would do the trick. I mix a little into my sugar-less green tea and it tastes intense, but I kind of enjoy that. I use the Organic Moringa Leaf Powder by Zen Principle. It is made in the US and is always fresh.
What I would like to show you in this post though, is how you can make a quick and effective mask with this powder. The powerful nutrients in Moringa make for a perfect treatment mask to treat acne, protect from free radicals, rejuvenate and revitalize your skin.
I’ve only tried mixing this powder with water so far, as seen in the pictures below, but there are various ingredients you could also add to customize the mask for your own skin needs. I’m thinking some honey and green tea powder?
This powder came in a 1 lb bag, but I transferred in to a tight-lid-container for better storage and easier access.
Take a teaspoon or less of this powder and mix it with some water to form a thick paste. Once mixes, the paste smells so much like a farm (it’s very grassy!). Apply it to your face for about 5 minutes. Since this powder doesn’t dissolve, I have notices that it is lightly exfoliating. The tiny powder particles gently slough away dead skin cells, which I love! This simple mask did a great job at calming the hormonal breakouts and left my skin more even toned and bright the next day. I love to apply this mask while I’m taking a bath, then I can rinse it off and soak my body in the bright-green water. It’s a whole spa experience!
