The Power of Neem (For Acne, Hair, Injuries, & More)

There are so many benefits to Neem, so I will just be touching upon some of them and hopefully you can give it a try if you haven’t already! I have only heard about Neem for a few months and have been very interested in learning as much as I can about it. I assume there are others who haven’t heard of it either. :)

Neem is a tree that has been used for hundreds of years for medicinal purposes. All parts of the Neem tree can be used (Bark, fruit, leaves...). It is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-parasitic, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory and it is an analgesic (pain relief). If you have wounds, rashes, lacerations or burns, you can apply some Neem oil onto the affected area to help the healing process and to diminish the chance of infection.

One benefit of Neem which gravitated me towards it the most what the fact that it can be very effective at reducing acne, eczema, rashes and other skin ailments, and it is 100% natural so you aren’t putting any chemicals on your skin or in your body. I have struggled on and off with acne for some time now, and in recent years I have turned to one-ingredient treatments, such as Rosehip Seed Oil, Coconut Oil, Tea tree Oil and Neem Oil. Because of its properties mentioned earlier, such as it being anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial, it is effective in relieving acne since it fends off germs.

Neem in oil form is great to use as a moisturizer for your skin and hair. It can also help to reduce dandruff and can replenish oils and be used an an oil for massage. As with other natural products, such as Coconut Oil, Neem Oil that is unrefined (as opposed to refined) is best for optimal results. Neem can be found in capsule form, powers, natural form, toothpastes, soaps, lotions...etc.
