descriptionNOTE: Large quantities/sizes of any product may have to be special ordered. If that's the case, customers must allow a minimum of 10 business days for a new supply to arrive at our warehouse. Some products could arrive sooner, some later. Cancellations are not allowed because an item becomes 'out of stock' soon after the customer places the order, the 'out of stock' product will ship as soon as it arrives at our warehouse. What do we consider large quantities/sizes of our products? Some examples are products classified as bulk or that include the word 'bulk' in the product's name, products offered in 5+ lbs., expensive EO's offered in 1+ lb. and certain quantities of packaging materials. If it's important for you to know before placing an order if a certain quantity's in stock, please email email@example.com and inquire before placing the order. The nature of our business is such that what is in stock in the morning may not be in stock in the afternoon. All products are subject to prior sale.
NOTE: If we unexpectedly encounter a problem with the packaging material used to pack the product you ordered (defective/missing part or delivery to us delayed for any reason including road/weather conditions or the manufacturer has a manufacturing delay, etc.) we cannot ship until the correct packaging part/material is delivered to us. Please understand this and do not place an order if this paragraph presents a problem for you. In 20 years in business we've only had one instance where delivery to us of empty 35 lb. pails/lids was delayed a couple of days. (Rev. 6/19/18)
Neem Seed Oil, Wild, Azadirachta indica (INCI: Azadirachta indica)
Our Neem seed oil is a viscous, dark-colored oil; however, we’ve also received stocks of neem oil which are clear/see through, very fluid and dark yellow/dark orange in color. NOTE: Being an all natural oil, no one has any control over its appearance, consistency and/or aroma. We will not accept returns because customers expect a neem seed oil with certain properties and our current stock may not offer those expected properties. If you have concerns, please first order a sample when you place a future order for other products. Or order the smallest possible quantity that meets our $20 minimum order requirement. As always, our posted policy mentions that we don’t allow returns, all sales are final.
The neem seed kernel is very rich in fatty acids, often up to 50 % of the kernel's weight. Neem seed oil is very bitter with a garlic/sulfur smell; it contains vitamin E and other essential amino acids. Neem oil is an excellent moisturizing oil that contains compounds with historical and scientific validity as medicinals but it’s not recommended for direct skin application, must be first diluted in a carrier oil.
The aroma of neem seed oil is extremely strong and overwhelming. However, its sulfurous smell is what makes neem seed oil so effective. Some strongly believe that should the stinky smell be removed, doing so will greatly impact the oil’s effectiveness. Its aroma has been compared to garlic, soy sauce and Cuban mojo sauce. Neem is also known as Nimba, Margosa or Indian Tulip Tree Oil, it is used as a traditional treatment for severely damaged skin, it is not an essential oil. Our Neem oil is cold pressed, no solvents are used in its processing and its origin is from India.
The concentrated essential fatty acids help to restore moisture and elasticity to the skin while it disinfects and heals. Apply sparingly several times a day to affected areas. You may also add 20 to 25 drops of Neem Oil to 8 ounces of your favorite shampoo, massage oil or lotion.
As a natural pesticide: Using neem derivatives for managing pests is a non-violent approach to controlling pests. Neem products work by intervening at several stages of the insect's life. They may not kill the pest instantaneously but incapacitate it in several ways. Neem very subtly employs effects such as repellence, feeding and ovipositional deterrence, growth inhibition, mating disruption, chemo-sterilization, etc..
Extracts from neem have shown incredible success with not only battling fungus problems but also many forms of root rot in plants. Neem biodegrades in a matter of weeks when exposed to the sunlight. Pure Neem oil will retain its potency much longer if stored in a cool place away from strong light. Here are some tips on using Neem oil with plants: (1) Do not mix any more than you need. (2) Add water and a little soap to the plant before spraying. (3) Spray the complete plant including the potting media. (4) Mix 1 oz. in 1 gallon of water. A weaker solution may be used for maintenance. INCI: Azadirachta indica.

Probably most effective item I purchased...
Like someone else below, I bought Neem oil for a dry scalp treatment. That did not work out for me as it left my scalp too greasy and I couldn't get the smell out for two days (despite washing with shampoo). However, as I already smelled, and I had some acne issues I decided to apply a very small amount (mixed with water) to my face and wow what a difference! I had a rosy "glow" maybe un-diagnosed rosacea for years and now my skin tone looks even in the cheek area and super clear after only 3 applications. The smell does linger so you have to make peace with that before you buy the oil.

Like everyone else..I do agree about the smell, def not pleasant. Not to the point where I can't take it and HAVE to mask the smell with other things. Maybe I just end up getting use to the smell idk. Let me tell you though, I mixed this with my other oils for my face oil cleanse, and my acne was acting up more than the norm on my face for some reason. Now I always used the oil cleansing but I notice faster results when I add the neem. I also believe it does works on warts, wasn't consistent but I did notice a differ in the wart and it wanting to fall off. Now imagine if I stay on top of it. It def plays a powerful anti fungal. I can go on and on! Yes the smell is not the best..at all lol, however the benefits that comes with this wonderful oil makes it all worth it!

Lovely CP Soap and Insect Repellant
I needed a soap for a friend who constantly suffers from eczema. Neem has fantastic benefits for the skin but I was a little leery using it due to its strong smell. But I have to say. I'm so glad I did. I made a CP soap with this and it's cured to a lovely soap. I didn't think I'd come back to buy more when I first uncapped this stuff but besides the CP soap I've made. I've also been using it as an insect repellant on my tomatoes plants. Just a bit of neem oil, hot water and bit of dish detergent in a spray bottle and I don't have any nibbles on my plants this year. So Neem, I'm sold, I'll be coming back for more of you.

This oil is really thick and a little goes a long way. It's great for scalp issues. Watch out for the smell though, it's really pungent but works soo well. Great value too!

It Works....For Sooo Many Things (incl dry, itchy skin)!
I originally bought neem seed oil as an ingredient in a hair formula, but read that it is also good for the skin. It's winter and I have the annual dry, itchy patches on my legs. I applied just enough neem to cover the tip of my index finger and rubbed it into the dry patches (a little does go a long way). Guess what? Less than a week later, I could see the dry patches starting to heal! I've paid a fortune in OTC and Rx remedies for those dry patches only to get temporary relief and the patches always return. So far, neem appears to provide an extended solution (which is waaay better than anything else I've ever tried). Neem is also good for hair, plants, pets...and people! Smells like smoked bacon bits to me, which doesn't bother me that much. Plus, the smell doesn't last. Great product from a great company. Definitely recommend both! :0)
