Neem Oil: An Ayurvedic medicinal oil with astonishing benefits

Ayurveda is one of the oldest practiced medicines in the world. The "ancients" in India praciticed the medicine of longevity.  In other words, herbs and plants were used to prolong a long and healthy life.  Neem was an essential plant used in these traditional Ayurvedic practices.

“In India, they use oils every day to stay healthy- on the body, on the hair and particularly on the nose and in the nostrils to prevent dryness. Oils are used to clean the ears and eyes and rubbed into the navel to ward off dryness and improve a weak digestion.”

(Poiroux, Jean-Louis. Happiness Within The Skin. The Secrets of Holistic Beauty from Cinq Mondes Spas. Abrams. 2018) 

Where does Neem Oil come from and what are its benefits?

“Neem oil is famous in India for its almost magical effects. The Neem or Indian Lilac is usually found growing in every village, considered a sacred tree and so revered for its wonderous properties that rural Indians call it the “healing tree” or “village pharmacy”.

Neem oil is a popular home remedy for minor cuts and scrapes as it accelerates wound healing to a quite astonishing degree. Rich in essential fatty acids, amino acids and vitamin E, Neem oil is used in skin care oils for its dermatological, anti-inflammatory and hydrating properties, helping to sooth and soften the skin.”

(Poiroux, Jean-Louis. Happiness Within The Skin. The Secrets of Holistic Beauty from Cinq Mondes Spas. Abrams. 2018)
