The history of the Moringa tree begins on the Indian subcontinent around 2000 BCE. There, it was used in history of the Moringa traditional medicine for 300 conditions ranging in severity from minor skin blemishes to more serious illnesses like asthma, high blood pressure and heart disease, ulcers and kidney stones, as well as respiratory illnesses like tuberculosis.

From India it spread to ancient Egypt, where it was used as a natural sunscreen to protect against the harsh desert environment; and then eventually to Greece and Rome where it served an important role as both an ointment and expensive perfume.

The progress of the plant also moved westward into Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands (most notably the Philippines), where its unique nutritional qualities caused it to become a staple vegetable in the local diet.
