Neem Seed Oil

Description – Neem oil is used in agricultural and gardening applications as a natural insecticide and fungicide. It does have a very pungent aroma that many people dislike, however this becomes less pervasive when neem is used as an ingredient in soaps, cream or lotions. Our neem has a high 3000ppm azadirachtin content. We do not recommend taking neem oil internally, for internal use it is best instead to take capsules or make a tea from the leaves.
