The Moringa tree (Oleifera) originates from the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains in India. The seed was brought to South Africa some 160 years ago by the indentured Indian labourers.

Aloe has been known for its healing properties for at least 6,000 years. In the early days, the plant was known for being a “plant of immortality” and was presented to Egyptian pharaohs as a funeral gift. Over time, groups from many geographical areas have used aloe.
Humans have long known about the plant’s healing benefits, and over the years have used aloe — which is also known as “burn plant,” “lily of the desert,” and “elephant’s gall” — to help treat wounds, digestive issues.
These days, aloe has an entire industry behind it. Its juices are used in cosmetics and personal-care products such as moisturizers, soap, shaving cream, and suntan lotion.
Did you know that honey isn’t the only thing that bees make? Bees also produce a compound called propolis from the sap on needle-leaved trees or evergreens. When they combine the sap with their own discharges and beeswax, they create a sticky, greenish-brown product used as a coating to build their hives and protects and sterilise their hives. This is propolis.
Thousands of years ago, ancient civilizations used propolis for its medicinal properties. Greeks used it to treat abscesses. Assyrians put it on wounds and tumours to fight infection and help the healing process. Egyptians used it to embalm mummies.
What the research says
Propolis is thought to have antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties. The bee product appears to provide protection from some bacteria, viruses, and fungi.
