Neem Fruit: Which is put through a cold press to produce oil. Uses include skin treatment, arthritis, crop protection, some Indian families take the oil orally when ill. Please don’t be put off by the strong aroma of neem oil.

These application instructions for Neem Oil are based on trials, research and results witnessed by us at Natures Good Oil over more than 20 years in treatment of many ailments.

These observations are in no way meant to be taken as medical advice, nor are any claims inferred as to the effectiveness of Neem products in the treatments of any ailment either human or animal.

Neem has been used for thousands of years as an effective medicinal. Neem oil must be sourced from a supplier that guarantees it to be pure and free from contamination.

When using Neem Oil it is important to use an applicator to prevent contaminating the oil. I like to pour out an amount into a small container or use a cotton bud to take out required amount of neem oil. Replace cap immediately and refrigerate as this will prolong the oil’s shelf life.


Hints And Tips
The best results I have witnessed are with using pure oil.
A blend of 5-10% tea tree, coconut, or lavender oils, will soften the strong garlic like smell of Neem oil.
If full strength Neem oil is found to be too strong, dilute with a bland oil Eg: sesame oil.
A 20% sesame seed oil blend with Neem oil will give added UV stability to the Neem oil.
Pure Neem oil will solidify in cool conditions, immerse bottle in lukewarm water to liquefy.
Neem oil is recommended for external use only. Please keep Neem oil refrigerated when not in use, as the oil becomes unstable in hot conditions.

Neem oil is highly contraceptive if used internally, do not use if pregnant or likely to become pregnant.
