Moringa or Malunggay

If you  came from Asia  like me, Moringa is very popular as a leafy vegetable.  In the Philippines, we call this plant, Malunggay.  I think  this is called Sajina in India.  Moringa or Malunggay is not only a healthy  leafy vegetable but it is also a herbal plant with many medicinal  factor.  Malunggay is a very good source of Vitamins A, B, And C.  IT is also rich in calcium, iron, and protein which is really good for nursing mothers.  A fried of mine sent me some  Moringa pods  last year and  it was later this year when I remembered it so my Moringa plant isn't as tall yet.  I will try to put this inside our home when the cold weather sets in and will try to  keep it alive.
I miss eating Moringa.  When I was asked to  review another product from Green Virgin Products, I was drawn to this handcrafted bar soap with  soap nut and moringa.   It has coconut oil which I also love, olive oil, palm kernel oil,  shea butter, sunflower oil, peppermint essential oil and moringa.  With all these healthy ingredients, your skin will definitely  radiates using  this  soap.  
We have been using this for  several days now and I love how it makes my skin feels.  I love it when I find  products that are non-toxic  and it really works well.  If you are fond of using products that are  natural like the ingredients I have stated above, this soap is for you.  
With two kids and two dogs inside our home, I definitely   on-board to  cleaning products that are not harmful not only to our kids but to our fur babies as well.    This GVP Formula 433 All Purpose Cleaner Concentrate is totally non-toxic, odorless, hypoallergenic, and eco-friendly.   
This 16 ounces bottle  would make 11 pints of medium duty cleaning power.  Yep, that's right, you can dilute this with water and use it  on any washable surface, bathrooms, kitchens, floors, dishes, carpets, pet stains, stainless steel and you can even use this  for fruit and veggie wash!  Again, this product contains coconut oil which I love.

Okay, here's the verdict:  I specifically ordered this product to use as degreaser coz as you know, cleaning an oven is really a  hard task especially if you don't clean it regularly which in my case, I seldom bake so our oven is not really heavy on splatter of sauce and other stuff.  So here it is, the look of the oven door inside.
After I soaked it with GVP Formula 433, there's still a little bit left  after  scrubbing it.  This is not the best  degreaser I have ever used but it helps in  cleaning tough grease spots.  I would still prefer to use vinegar and lime juice  but for now, I am contented with what this product offers.
I will update you with other cleaning  job I will do with this in other parts of my house.  Thank you once again Green Virgin Products!  Looking forward to working with you again.

Oh wow, I never heard of this before! It seems like a pretty good natural type of a product. Which is what we all need to use more often! I'll have to look in to this!

Karen said...

This is nice product but I guess, I'll go for the vinegar and lime.

Oh I would so want to give this a try. My oven looks just like yours and I hate cleaning it. If that did such a great job I want to try it.

Teresa McCluskey said...

Never heard of this brand before but it did work decent as I can see. But I would prefer something that gets the job 100% done!

I sure miss Malunggay too, mommy Rose. I would love to have a plant or two in a pot and enjoy some Malunggay soup. Anyway, had you not talk about this product, I would not even know about it. That sounds like wonderful product and I am onboard when it comes to products that are not too harsh. thanks for sharing!

Melissa said...

I have used that soap & I love it too! Although I never knew that moringa was able to be eaten like that. Thanks for the lesson.

jo said...

Wow! That worked really well! Plus, it's green so I bet it's safer to use compare with other brands!

Nichole Arnold said...

Hey! Worked pretty great, I have no clue how long it has been since this oven has been cleaned....maybe 30yrs since it was my grandmothers lol

kat b said...

Looking forward to hearing more. I like when cleaning products are effective but not harmful!

We love Moringa, stuff with moringa, or stuff made with moringa.

Karen @ MrsLookingGood said...

I will definitely consider the GVP Formula as a multi-purpose cleaner Rose! I often just buy spic and span to clean but this is a much greener alternative plus a bottle can go a long way. Thanks for sharing sis.

Another product for the frugal Filipinas! Haha. Anything to save a buck, save the environment and save time is definitely a "must-have" for me. 16 ounces = 11 pints of cleaning solution? Great! I am a hands-down believer. Thanks for sharing, sis!

another name for it is red horseradish leaves :) this is becoming so popular when it comes to supplements here in United States. It's neat that they're making soaps out of it too.

Becca Wilson said...

I absolutely love Green Virgin Products! It is a staple in my home.

Joy Calipes-Felizardo said...

Malungay is one oc the superfood which I always make a point of using in my kitchen, and that I can truly attest to.

Algene said...

I'm not really familiar with these products and I'm amazed with how effective they are :) Indeed, Moringa has great effects!

Ria C said...

I like to try organic products and those that don't let out chemicals to the environment. There are plenty of cleaning products and even personal hygiene products that are earth-friendly, organic and natural, just like the soap you have.
