Marula Oil (Sclerocarya Birrea)SPIRITUAL PRACTISES
Some tribes esteem Marula tree as a holy plant which involves many rituals and legends. For the Zulu people Marula tree represents the female fertility and a symbol of tenderness. The traditional rites with Marula oil are held for welcoming the new born girls.

It plays a prominent role in many traditional cultures in Southern Africa. Some believe that the sex of a child can be pre-determined by administering an infusion of the bark of a male or female tree to a pregnant woman. The Zulu and Tonga peoples both call Marula the "Marriage tree" and a brew of the bark is administered as part of a cleansing ritual prior to marriage.
