5 easy ways to use neem
New to neem? Welcome to this incredible health and beauty all-rounder
There’s a reason neem has been heralded as ‘nature’s drugstore’. This multi-purpose ingredient is an all-rounder for health and beauty, from top to toe and inside and out. If you’re new to neem, there are boundless ways to incorporate it into your normal routine and lifestyle to suit your needs. Here are five simple and effective ways to try it out.
1. It’s an anti-ageing dream
Neem comes loaded with carotenoid and vitamin E which boosts antioxidants and collagen production – a potent recipe for anti-ageing action. There’s no need to spend big on fancy moisturisers when you can mix your own cream at home in minutes. Take 15g of our 100% Pure Neem Oil and mix it with 225g of jojoba oil. A few drops of essential oil like lavender will boost the scent and sensory experience. Super easy and effective.
2. Add a hit of antioxidants to your smoothie
Next time you want to grab a quick, nourishing drink, add a scoop of neem to your blender. High levels of antioxidants, anti-inflammatory agents and nutrients will provide a boost to your gut, skin and hair, showing unwanted guests the door. Take a teaspoon of our 100% Neem Powder and whizz it up with a glass of organic apple juice.
3. Formulate a fuss-free scalp bath
You need two things: 100% Neem Oil and olive oil, that’s it. Mix them together (1/2 teaspoon of Pure Neem Oil with 3 tablespoons of olive oil) and you ‘ll have the makings of a powerful tonic for your scalp, helping rid stubborn dandruff and itchy scalps. Leave on for an hour and rinse – you’ll feel invigorated and refreshed!
4. Fast-acting treatment for spots and acne
Known for its incredible anti-bacterial properties, neem is a natural choice for fighting acne and breakouts. Super simple, just dab a few drops of 100% Pure Neem Oil onto a cotton wool pad before you go to bed and apply directly onto the affected areas. Let it work its magic overnight. Patch test before use.
5. Give your body lotion a winter boost
Add an extra layer of protection to your skin over the colder months by incorporating a few drops of 100% Pure Neem Oil to your daily body moisturiser. If you suffer from dry patches or eczema, this quick addition to your routine will relieve and soothe, keeping skin softer for longer. Additionally, try our Multi-Purpose Super Balm which eliminates dry skin powerfully but gently (so gentle you can use it on babies!).
