What does this mean?

Inci: Melia Azadirachta Seed Oil

A very stable and moisturising oil, particularly useful in nail and feet products.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A brown to greenish brown oily liquid with a very pungent odour that is pressed fromthe organic seeds of the Neem tree.
 
The high content of Omega 9 can mean that the oil may go cloudy or solidify in cold temperatures. This is not a problem and does not harm the oil at all. Place the bottle in a cup of warm water to gently return its fluidity.
  • Use 1% to 100%. However, it does smell quite strong so may not be so appealing to use unblended.
  • Oil soluble so cannot be used in water only products. It can be used in small amounts in water based gels that will hold it in suspension.
  • Heat stable so can be used in Stage 1 (fat stage) when making creams and lotions.
Cautions/Contraindications
There is a conflict of opinion whether Neem Oil is safe to use during pregnancy. As such, to err on the safe side, we recommend that you not use Neem Oil if you are pregnant, trying to conceive or are nursing a baby.
Blend Neem Oil with Sesame Oil, Lemon Essential Oil and Myrrh Essential Oil for a very effective strengthening product that also brightens discoloured nails.
 
Combine it with Citronella Essential Oil to use as an insect repellant.

HOW TO USE IT

Skin Care
  • Neem has excellent moisturising qualities. The high levels of Omega 9 keep the skin soft, supple and radiant. It helps the skin to retain moisture better.
  • For the same reasons, it is helpful with eczema prone and psoriasis prone skin. It sinks into the skin deeply and forms a protective barrier.
 
  • It is a useful oil in nail oil blends as it helps to stop the nails from splitting. Very effective in foot care products. Use in foot gels as well as foot creams.
  • It can be part of the fat stage in a foot cream. It blends well with Tea Tree Essential Oil to keep the feet in good condition. Neem Oil can be used neat on the toes.
Hair Care
  • Use Neem Oil in hair packs and shampoos. Combine with Jojoba oil when making Hair Oil Pomades and Hot Oil Treatments. It can also be used as a hair conditioner. After shampooing, leave in for just 10 minutes and then shampoo out.
  • Small amounts can be used neat on the hair. Rub a few drops onto the palms of your hands and pull through your hair. It leaves an attractive shine and tames frizzy hair whilst conditioning the scalp as well. The rich Omega 9 content keeps the hair shaft soft and supple helping to strengthen it.

Good value for the money

I bought it to use as a pesticide, and it does the job perfectly. Packaging is also good, airtight smell proof.

Great product!

Neem oil is a very versatile product, which can be used from head to toe. It can also be used as an insecticide when organic gardening. However, it should be diluted before being used.
