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)
Wonderful skin healer and great for hair
This oil stinks terribly! However, its healing powers are wonderful especially on damaged, chaffed, burned, or irritated skin due to scratching (from eczema/psoriasis). I also added some to my personal hair cream and it made all the difference. The cream I make works very well to begin with but when I added a capful to the formula it really made my hair feel luxurious! I don't even need to use heat as often as I use to. A tip: I tried everything to cover the smell (almond, cherry etc) all the strong smelling fragrance oils however the one thing that seems to cover the smell effectively is chocolate fragrance oil. Any strong chocolate will due but I use chocolate mousse fragrance and that works pretty well.
Neem oil is great! A natural preservative and great antiseptic for your products. Adding a little to lotions and soaps boosts skin quality. Of course neem isn't the best smelling oil, but it's healing properties make this oil a must.
This oil is great when warmed and used as a hot oil treatment before shampooing or pre-poo. Love it! Be PREPARED for the smell though it is a very, very strong garlic/sulfur odor, that's why I gave it a 4...the quality is unbeatable though.
Neem is the best!
I use Neem oil as an organic insecticide and fungicide for my indoor plants. I used to have fungus gnats, but since I started to used Neem oil they have almost been completely eradicated. Also, another benefit of using Neem oil is as a leaf shine. It makes plants look so healthy!
I use neem oil on the plants (it needs a surfactant to keep it in solution) and also in shampoo for dogs/cats. It does have a rather strange smell--bit of a garlic herb smell. It's not unpleasant, but not something you'd want to wear as perfume either. Refrigerated it gets very thick and you have to wait for it to warm.
i don't know. it is funky beyond all belief. neem oil provides an effective offense to fungus, etc., however, it is so funky that i have to 'hide' it in other oils and scents. it's a great oil but you need to overcome the natural odor.
