Neem oil is taken directly from the seeds of the tropical tree that inhabits much of India called the Azadirachta Indica. The oil that comes from the seeds are usually deep red in color and has a strong, pungent odor. While Neem oil is often used for cosmetic purposes, such as in many soaps, lotions and make-up, it has also been used for many medicinal purposes as well. Neem oil benefits not just the human body but animals and the environment as well.
Neem oil can and has been used for centuries as a way to cleanse the body of parasites and other toxins in which humans tend to accumulate over time. A body cleanse used to detoxify the liver with Neem not only helps to increase energy in the body but will also help to reduce illnesses down the road. It can also help by reducing air-born allergies, reduce many cardiovascular problems and even help to reduce the chances of going bald.
Healing and curing of skin disorders are just one the ways that Neem oil has been tested and proven to work. This is due largely to the antiseptic properties that the oil contains. Just a little bit of this oil rubbed into itchy, dry skin patches can help the itching stop as well as bring moisture to the skin. This is very beneficial for sufferers of the very irritating skin disorder known as eczema. Neem oil is also successful in helping to cure even the largest cases of acne.
Neem oil is quickly becoming a very popular ingredient in many over the counter insect sprays. This is largely because bugs hate the smell and taste of it. Since neem can actually be ingested it is the healthier option in keeping pesky bugs away. It can be used on vegetable gardens, animals and even on humans.
