Moringa powder is gotten from the dried leaves of the moringa plant. It’s necessary to differentiate between the benefits of the leaves, seeds, flowers and powder. Although from the same tree, they have their uses. The leaves, which the powder comes from is the most nutritious part of the plant.
Moringa powder is a rich source of many nutrients like Vitamin A, Vitamin B, Vitamin C, Vitamin D and Vitamin E. In fact, they have many more vitamins than the richest sources such as carrots, oranges and milk.
I used to think little of body hair, I never thought of it. It was just something I am accustomed to as being part of me without having to question it. I also appreciated whenever it’s cold because according to my Biology teacher in secondary school, body hair protects you from the cold by helping to retain heat. For some reason, most Igbo people are very hairy so people look at my legs or hands and say “You are Igbo, right?”. It’s like my Igbo trademark.
I remember my first encounter with African black soap, the local unpackaged kind. I was a bit repulsed and at that time felt a little superior for using dove. How little did I know at that time. Now African black soap is one of the best things that has happened to me.
African black soap typically contains – Plantain skin ash which is the main ingredient is a natural source of vitamin A, vitamin E, and iron. Cocoa pod ash, palm kernel oil. Some people add extra ingredients like the one I use also contains honey, shea butter, osun (Camwood), Aloe Vera, and Lime. It is made mostly by Nigerians and Ghanaians. It is important to note that African black soap is actually brown not black. If it is black, it is fake.
This is the first post on my blog and I’m excited about it! I was born in Lagos, Nigeria to an Igbo father and Yoruba mother. I’m very proud of my heritage, as only a few people in this world can boast of having the rich genes of the Igbo and Yoruba people in one body. I like to describe myself as an ambivert since I don’t fit in either category of extrovert or introvert.
I was a precocious child and still have a little world in my head where I create awesome characters and magic. I’m creative, I love colours, mixing them, painting, creating art. I also love some other things which you will get to discover if you follow my blog. I was an inquisitive child, I was told I could ask anything like; “why isn’t the sky black or green, must it be blue?”.
