The Moringa elongs to one of the most important trees in the world. The scientific name is Moringa Oleifera. The tree becomes five to ten meters high. The roots are tuber-shaped and thickened with numerous tubular side roots. They hold the water and make the tree look nice. Also in the dry season. The thick trunk grows straight, the bark is white and feels cork like. The scattered leaves are long-stemmed, odd and triple composed. The white flowers are in large fluff-shaped clusters. The hanging pods are very striking. When the old people used to get water from the well, for example, to wash clothes or to bathe and the water came dirty from the well, they would put the flowers of the moringa into the water.
The use of herbs and their medicinal effect goes back to the very beginning of our history.
The earliest civilizations already used plants instinctively for both nutrition and healing. Also, the ancient Egyptians practiced herbal medicine - at a particularly high level. The Jewish people know clergymen who heal people with herbs. Around 460 BC, the father of medicine, Hypocrates, works in Greece. The Romans use herbs and flowers in various ways. In China, herbal systems have traditionally been developed for therapies. Native American Shamans and indigenous African cultures use herbs for healing and rituals.
