The Amazing Neem Tree
Video from: youtube.com
Neem (Azadirachta indica) has worldwide medicinal and agricultural applications as a non-toxic alternative to synthetic chemicals for both curing and preventing disease.
Neem seed oil is like a dream come true for the old snake oil salesman...1001 uses out of a single bottle! The claims made about neem hold up under scientific scrutiny. The bark, leaves and oil of the neem tree have been used in India for several thousand years, and are still used today. About 75% of Ayurvedic remedies contain some form of neem. Indians call the sacred neem tree "the village pharmacy", and have limitless faith in its abilities.
People value neem as a natural insect repellent and pesticide, they use it for skin care and skin disorders, and many also take neem leaves internally. Neem oil is used on humans, on animals, and on plants, for a huge range of different problems and diseases.
These are not just folk tales. Neem is the most heavily researched herbal remedy in India. Scientists have identified over 150 active substances in neem, and many of those proved to be as effective in laboratory studies as the folklore claimed they would be.
US companies tried to obtain patents for neem, and the patents were revoked.
