The Benefits of Neem Oil

There are so many benefits to Neem oil and some even compare it to coconut oil. The oil, which comes from the Neem tree, is cold pressed from the kernels of the fruit. Not only is it used for skincare products, it’s also used for haircare and even pet and garden care. Neem oil is often used to keep the skin looking youthful and glowing but it can also be ingested or applied topically as a medicine.

In fact, according to Live Strong, scientists say that, “Virtually every part of the tree is beneficial for healing and has been used medicinally for over 2000 years. In 1992, the U.S. National Academy of Sciences published a book entitled, "Neem - a tree for solving global problems." The extract has been used to treat a wide variety of illnesses.”

Basically, Neem oil is a must-have product that you won’t want to miss out on.

More Moisture, Please

Neem oil is great for moisturizing skin. When applied directly to the area, it will soothe and hydrate it, leaving it feeling soft and smooth. For individuals with dry skin, Neem oil is a great alternative to factory-made products, and because it’s 100% natural, you’re not likely to run in to any irritation issues. I don’t know about you, but to me, neem oil sounds like my skin needed yesterday.

Magic Medicine

What do cuts, bruises, eczema, and psoriasis all have in common? All of them can be treated with Neem oil. It sounds insane but neem oil can do pretty much anything. In fact, it can also be used to treat wounds, skin infections, and ulcers. It can even help out your furry friends by working to get rid of ticks and fleas. And, to make it even better, it works as a mosquito repellent as well!

Keeps You Looking Young

In addition to being used as both a moisturizer and a medicine, neem oil is essentially yet another all-in- one serum. It can balance out skin tone, tighten pores, extract impurities, treat, and even prevent acne scars, as well as protect skin from harmful agents. It can also detoxify your face and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It doesn’t get much better than that.

Comes In Soap Form

For people who don’t like the feeling of oil on their skin (I can relate sometimes), here’s some good news: Neem oil comes in soap form! Like African black soap, neem oil can be melted down and molded into shower soap or hand soap which is a great alternative to buying expensive products from the store!

Works On Hair Too

As if neem oil wasn’t already perfect, it can also be used on hair! And no, I’m not kidding. Neem oil is frequently used to fight dandruff, lice, and even frizz. Yes! So for healthy hair and a healthy scalp, you can either mix Neem oil with another type of oil, such as coconut oil, or apply it directly to the scalp. Leave it on for 20 minutes and voila! You’ve got your own at-home deep conditioner that also promotes hair growth. Bam!

Can moisturize, fight infections, make your skin look youthful and bright, and even keep your hair looking long and healthy.
