A tree found throughout tropical and subtropical regions. Its scientific name is Moringa oleifera, and it is not related to horseradish.

The oil and leaves of the horseradish tree are often used for skin care products and cosmetics. The leaves of the plant contain a large amount of vitamin C and K, and they are a popular folk remedy for joint pain. The moringa plant is also used as an aphrodisiac.

While the root of the horseradish tree is dangerous, other parts of the plant are safe to consume and to use on skin. Pregnant women should not use any products with moringa, as there is some evidence that it could cause a miscarriage.
