Fun Facts:
Elephants love to eat the Mongongo nuts

‘recovered from elephant dung’

The elephants eat the fruits greedily and it is much easier to let the elephants do the job of picking;

The seed will not germinate until it has spent a week inside the elephant, and

The elephant enjoys the fruit but his digestive mechanism does not affect the extremely hard shell and the nut inside. The natives of Rhodesia, therefore, follow the elephant, recover the hard-shelled nuts where they have been dropped, clean and dry them, then crack the extremely hard shell, and find the contents perfectly delicious.”
— Edwin A. Menninger, ‘Edible Nuts of the World’

Application

Skin: Apply small amounts onto the skin after a bath or shower and massage until absorbed.
