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!
