Azadirachta indica

Neem oil is extracted from the Neem Tree, which grows extensively across the subcontinent. Pureté Nature's neem oil is pressed from the seeds and kernels to get the most potent extract. 

Neem is popularly used to keep the hair and scalp clear and teeth and mouth clean. Comprised of over 70% fatty acids (oleic and stearic) neem oil finds use in the realm of beauty, wherein neem is diluted in a base oil and applied to improve skin smoothness and texture. A potent insecticide, neem oil can be mixed with water and sprayed on plants (indoors and out) to control pests.

Organic neem oil for the skin

Neem oil is rich in beneficial essential fatty acids and vitamin E, containing significant quantities of oleic acid, linoleic acid, palmitic acid, and stearic acid to soothe and replenish. It helps keep skin supple and smooth leaving no greasy residue, and the compounds seek out damaging free radicals to help with anti-aging. Best applied just before bedtime, neem oil is highly restorative and may help reduce scars, wrinkles, acne, and eczema.

Neem oil in the Home

Neem oil has pesticidal properties, and a few drops can be blended with shampoo to help eradicate head lice and treat itchy dandruff scalp. It can also be used as a very effective spot treatment to eliminate bedbugs.

Neem oil in the garden

As a natural and organic pesticide, Neem oil can be used to help prevent damage by insects and other garden pests. Just mix 5ml or a teaspoon of Neem Oil with 2.5ml of garden safe liquid soap. Then add this solution to a litre of water. This can then be safely sprayed onto your plants to kill off insects and bugs- but be careful if you have ladybirds- as it can hurt them too!

Neem oil insect repellant

Mix 2 parts neem oil with 100 parts coconut oil, and apply liberally to the skin when likely to be in contact with biting insects. The aroma creates a very effective deterrent, leading to much less irritation. Neem oil and coconut oil are great for the skin too.
