Latin name: Azadirachta indica
Ingredients : Melia azadirachta seed oil
Virgin vegetable oil from first cold pressing, from organic farming: Certisys-Be control.
The neem tree (Azadirachta indica), or neem, is a tree native to India belonging to the Meliaceae family. At maturity, the neem tree can produce up to 50 kg of fruit, which is equivalent to 30 kg of seeds. Rich in azadirachtin, the oil extracted from the seeds is commonly called neem oil. Important as it is, azadirachtin does not appear to be the only active ingredient.
The properties of neem oil are specific: it helps to cleanse the skin.
It is therefore easy to combine it with tea tree, laurel or palmarosa EOs for heavy skin. Do not drown the EO in the neem oil: a small part is enough because the oil is active, penetrates easily and needs the EO so that its very particular roasted smell is softened.
In the same way, combine it with tea tree, geranium or palmarosa essential oils for its action against fungi
A recipe that is suitable for problem skin: pour 6.5 ml of aloe vera gel into a container - gently add 3 ml of neem oil with the mini whisk - finally add 10 drops of tea tree EO. Pour the mixture into a 10 ml ballpoint applicator.
Neem oil has also been shown to be effective in limiting tartar development. There is nothing to stop you making your own toothpaste:
The base of your toothpaste is white surfine clay. If necessary, add a little bicarbonate for the whitening effect. Slowly add a little water until you have a paste. Add a little neem oil and an essential oil, which can be peppermint, tea tree, rosemary, etc.
