UpNature Neem Oil is Amazing!


young-neem-tree1What Is Neem?

Neem is also known as azadirachta indica, Neem leaves have been used for millennia in the Ayurvedic tradition as a sort of miracle cure-all.
The Neem Tree is an Ayurveda evergreen tree that is part of the mahogany family and is a common feature of the drier regions of India, Southeast Asia and parts of Africa. Neem bark, leaves, fruit, seeds and oils all contain medicinal qualities. Many of these qualities play an important role in healthy skin care. Scientific studies have shown Neem to have properties that are:

◥◣ Antiviral – inhibits the growth of viruses
◥◣ Anti-fungal – inhibits the growth of fungi
◥◣ Antibacterial – destroying the growth of bacteria
◥◣ Analgesic – providing pain relief
◥◣ Anti-inflammatory – reduce certain signs of inflammation, swelling or        tenderness
◥◣ Antimicrobial – destroying the growth of microorganisms

UpNature has created a very amazing high quality 100% Cold Pressed Pure Raw Neem Oil that delivers phenomenal benefits to the skin and body.

If you have not used Neem Oil before be warned, this stuff has a strong smell that might turn you off upon first scent. To me the steller healing prpoperties of Neem Oil outweighs the fact that it does not smell like a bucket of roses. It smells like a combination of coffee, expresso beans, dark chocolate and a little bit of garlic. Nutty and earthy all at once.

UpNature’s Neem is a nice thick consistency that absorbs into the skin instantly. It is rich and smooth and the second it touches your skin, you can feel Neem’s healing properties go to work. This is very excellent Neem Oil made with quality and care.

Here are some ways you can use Neem Oil at home:

1) Moisturize dry, itchy skin—Neem oil can alleviate the cold, dry effects of winter by acting as a moisturizer (without becoming greasy).

2) Treat acne and reduce breakouts—Neem oil reduces the amount of bacteria on the skin. Over time, this improves the appearance of acne-prone skin—and without drugs or antibiotics! A boon for holiday-related breakouts!

3) Keep skin smooth and useful—Neem oil contains antioxidants, carotenoids and essential fatty acids (like Omega-3s and Omega-9s), which can diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

 

I like to mix my own Neem Oil blend

1 oz Avocado Oil

a few drops of Neem Oil

3 drops of Lavender essential oil

2 drops of Ginger Root essential oil

I put a few drops  of this onto my toothbrush along with some toothpaste

and use it to detoxify my mouth and it leaves my teeth, gums extremely clean. It will improve gum health and prevent cavities. Neem Oil is amazing for oral care. I also do Oil Pulling with Coconut & Neem oil infused with peppermint and lavender once a week. It leaves your mouth insanely clean!

Sometimes the holidays can be hectic and stressful and it’s always nice to have a little zen peaceful me time at home. This Spa Home Facial Steamer is the perfect thing to take you to that relaxing place.
This unique and neat device combines gently steaming your face along with the use of aromatherapy essential oils of your choice. Including in the box was a complimentary bottle of Frankincense and Myrrh essential oil which I thought was a nice and thoughtful gesture especially if you have never used essential oils and don’t have any at home.

This was very easy to assemble and user friendly, and in just a few minutes steam was soft and steadily coming out of the machine. I had my mode on high although you can set it to low if you wish. The oil smelled wonderful and after a few minutes of steaming I was feeling super tranquil and relaxed as my pores were opening and the steam was enveloping around my face. I felt like I was in a sauna room. It was very nice. I also had relaxing mediation music playing and candles burning so the ambiance was very zen and spa-like.

My roommate gets congested quite often especially in the winter time so this steamer will really benefit his health and really help him. I really think this is a great device to use when you need a quick essential oils fix. I can see having a headache and turning this gizmo on, throwing some peppermint, rosemary, lavender in and getting rid of that migraine quickly!

This steamer does the job very well, easy to use and will leave your skin and complexion glowing and feeling so soft. A perfect holiday gift for your mom or sister!

This is a superb charger that looks sleek, modern and handsome. It is slightly heavy so if you do tote it in your backpack, make sure your not carrying other things that are too heavy. I like how easy it was to plug my devices in and BOOM the thing starts charging immediately. I plan to take this to a huge EDM music festival this weekend where my cell always dies early on in the evening on the dance floor and the charging stations are always filled and packed. This will definitely keep the juice flowing. I can imagine this would be great for massive music festivals like Coachella next summer.

PROS – I charged my iPhone and my roommate’s phone twice today and it did not even put a dent in the power. It charges really fast. Love the sleek design. The LED indicator is perfect.
CONS – It is just a tad bit heavy but that is okay, knowing that this will give me juice if I was stranded somewhere gives me great peace of mind.

This is an amazing device and would make a great holiday gift for Dad or your brothers.
