Marula, the fruit of the Sclerocarya birrea, a medium-sized dioecious tree,
indigenous to the miombo woodlands of Southern Africa,
the Sudano-Sahelian range of West Africa, and Madagascar.
There are two types of marula oil, the oil extracted from
the seeds and the oil extracted from the nut’s hard shell. Marula oil is traditionally used in cosmetics, in food as a cooking oil, and as a meat preservative and to treat leather.
Once this oil is extracted, it can be used in a wide variety of cosmetic and cooking applications, although it is most famous for its effects on the skin and hair.
Marula oil has a clear, light yellow colour and a nutty aroma.
The Tsonga people of South Africa and Mozambique have used the oil as a moisturising body lotion for women and also as a massage oil for babies. In the past, Namibian women used marula oil rather than water to clean themselves.
