Neem (Azadirachta Indica) has been used for healing for more than 4500 Years in ancient India. Today, the neem tree is esteemed as the “Village Dispensary”—every part of it known to possess unique therapeutic value. According to Ayurveda, Neem is one of the best natural remedies for balancing ‘pitta’ and ‘kapha’. The bitter taste gives it a powerful cooling energy, which enhances its capacity to support healthy blood and balances pitta at the same time.
For thousands of years, various parts of the neem tree have been gathered for traditional health promoting reasons as well as practical everyday uses. The leaves, fruits, bark, and seed oil offer a wealth of benefits to the skin, nails, scalp, teeth, gums, and pets. Neem oil softens, moisturizes, and protects the skin and can also be used as a deodorant for malodorous sweat.
