How to order oils from Senegal

Earlier this year we had the opportunity to work with long time lipid community member Oumou Bathily to import a batch of oils from Senegal.

The oils are gorgeous and we still have a few gallons left,

Here's the details:

Moringa, Moringa oleifera, also known as the ben oil tree, and drumstick tree, is the first identified source of behenic fatty acid. The Behenic acid fatty acid chain is 22 carbons long and fully saturated and just 10% of moringa oil. The feel of behenic acid in the oil is thick and substantial. Moringa oil however, is high in oleic acid which lightens the 10% behenic acid.

Souchet, Cyperus esculentus, is commonly called tiger nut. It is a weed like sedge plant that grows prolifically around the temperate earth, and considered an invasive plant. The oil is pressed from tubers rather than seeds. As part of the reproductive process however, tubers are a means to reproduce so it is fitting to find the lipid compounds there. Generously endowed with plant sterols provide anti inflammatory protective phytosterols along with antioxidant tocopherols.
