What is Neem Oil?

Updated: Jan 24

Little is known in the west about Neem oil, used in India as a remedy for many health issues. Neem oil is extracted from the Neem tree which grows throughout the Indian sub-continent as a native species. Since being discovered by science, Neem trees are now grown in other parts of Asia, Africa and Australia. Neem oil has traditionally been used in Ayurvedic medicine to treat skin complaints, internal health issues, dental care, and even as an insecticide. Oils extracted from both the leaves and the seeds of the Neem tree help soothe the symptoms of eczema. They’re rich in compounds such as Nimbidin. Nimbin, and Quercetin which work as natural anti-inflammatories and anti-histamines. This helps reduce redness, swelling, and itching. When used as part of a skincare recipe its lipids help tone and lock moisture into dry skin.
