Woolzies Neem Oil is a potent oil with antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and insect-repelling properties. It contains fatty acids that hydrate dry skin and anti-aging vitamin E that heals and slows signs of aging. This oil does wonders for dry hair, dandruff, head lice, and itchy scalp. Neem oil can be used topically on its own, as a carrier oil to dilute essential oils, and as an ingredient in personal care products. It can also be used in the garden as a natural insecticide.
The neem tree, also known as Azadirachta indica, is native to the Indian subcontinent but is grown in many tropical and semi-tropical areas. This fast growing tree produces fragrant white flowers and small olive-like fruit.
Neem oil is cold pressed from the seeds of the neem tree. No heating or harsh chemicals are used during the extraction process.
