Please Note: Although neem oil is unlikely to have effect in small doses; users must be aware that it is sometimes used as a contraceptive when applied internally, so is best avoided by pregnant women or those seeking to conceive.
Neem oil has been used for hundreds of years in the controlling of plant pests and diseases. Many researches have shown that the spray solution of Neem oil helps to control common pests like white flies, aphids, scales, mealy bugs, spider mites, locusts, thrips, and Japanese beetles, etc. Neem oil also works as a fungicide and helps control powdery mildew. Some people have also experienced good results with Neem oil spray on black spot. Orchid owners use pure Neem oil spray to control pests like mealybugs, spidermites, etc.
One of the main ingredients in Neem seed oil is Azadirachtin that works as an insect growth regulator, thus preventing the larval stage to molt into an adult. As Neem is very bitter in taste, it also works as an antifeedant, thus making the leaves sprayed with it very distasteful for the bugs to eat, and the bugs choose to starve themselves rather than to eat the leaves treated with Neem.
Neem oil is bio-degradable and has proven to be non-toxic to mammals, birds, bees or earthworms. It is biodegradable and breaks down easily and quickly. Neem has also proven to be not harmful to adult beneficial insects, since it primarily affects only plant sap-sucking insects, which feed upon the treated plants. However it is recommended that care should be taken not to spray Neem oil solution when honey bees and the larvae of beneficials like ladybugs, etc. are present. Neem oil spray like any other oil spray can also burn leaves if sprayed in sun.
This Neem Oil is cold pressed and certified organic.
Pure Neem oil is for external use only. Test a small area before using Neem oil.
15 out of 18 people would recommend this product19/12/2017, By MarindaThe smell is very unpleasant, but for the way my skin h as improved, I can live with it. I mixed it in a beeswax lotion that I made and added other essential oils to try to mask the smell. it improved the smell, but I don't think anything will make the oil smell good. I'm happy with the results so all is good.25/11/2017, By WilnaI am allergic to the world and good quality, earth friendly products has given me comfort and confidence. So I am reviewing each product so that others can share the experience.
The general appearance of my skin has improved and it feels less iritated. Strong scent so I mix a couple of drops with my body lotion.
09/11/2017, By AzraaThis oil really works when mixed with jojoba and rosemary oil as an effective scalp and hair mask. The smell is not amazing, rather earthy but manageable.03/10/2017, By JaniCombining Neem Oil with Tea Tree Oil sorted my dog's skin condition. A pity about the smell! ;)30/08/2017, By ManieI use it for my plants as a organic pesticide and it works for avids ,white flys and more22/08/2017, By MelissaThis smells absolutely horrible and doesn't moisturise at all. I add a large amount to my lotion every morning, but by the middle of the day my skin is dry and itchy. Has made no improvement in my acne.05/08/2017, By ElaineI mix Neem oil with Argan oil and use it as a night moisturiser. I can see a big improvement in my hormonal acne. I think the Neem oil works very well with Argan oil and my skin feels moisturised and soft. I don't know why people complain about the smell, it's not a bad smell. I just find it very difficult to get the oil out of the bottle, maybe it's just a very thick oil.16/07/2017, By DLakzinTo be honest, the smell is not as bad as people would say it is. and the product works wonders even as child birth control make research. you can even add the oil in lubricants for child birth control,yeast infections, and also STI. it just have a natural herbal smell that's all.18/04/2017, By RuMy son struggled with an itchy, flaky scalp for years – doctors think it's some type of eczema but couldn't help us find anything that works. Until I discovered Nautica Organic Neem Oil. After a few uses his scalp has cleared and it is 3 months already and no sign of flaky, itchy scalp! Stinks but worth enduring the smell :)22/09/2016, By LeratoThe smell is unbearably foul. But this oil is working, in 1 week Ive seen huge improvements to my combination dry, dehydrated and sensitive skin.
I use it as a cleansing mask mixing 1 spoon honey neem oil with 1 teaspoon tumeric powder and yoghurt, only at night.
My acne has dried up and new breakouts are less. Inflammation and redness have lessened tremendously. I use the BEE Natural head to toe as a moisturiser, topped by Victorian Garden Pearberry for pigmentation. So far, this routine has worked best for me.08/09/2016, By LateefahSome smells are so bad that it can make you nauseous and I was worried that this would be the case because of the reviews! It does smell terrible but didn make me sick at all :) I use it only at night and it has calmed the sensitive areas on my skin. I also get bad rashes under my arms and this soothes it immediately which is a great relief as I don like using cortisone too often. Just make sure to spray some perfume on your clothes if you
e using this during the day!22/06/2016, By Hope LiezelMy daughters immune system was compromised after contracting chicken pox, she then developed several boils on her buttocks, which was sore and spreading. It took 3 days of using neem oil twice daily and keeping the individual boils covered, for all to clear up. My medicine cupboard is never without this awesome oil.04/04/2016, By Philippa JaneExcellent oil. Absorbs instantly. Skin condition I have suffered from Dermadox (picked up in hospital) for 18 months almost cured after using neem oil for 5 days. Thank you.27/08/2015, By Vanessa MalviciniI was looking for a way of controlling the ticks on my animals and did use it either pure or mixed with canola oil and tee tree oil. I used it on cattle, dogs, horses and I have the impression it is working. The animals love it and allow me to put it everywhere. This morning a cow was also kissing/licking me to thank me for using it instead of the poisonous stuff we use instead. A good way of keeping poisons away!!26/02/2015, By QuintinFor 15 years I have been struggling with scalp psoriasis. I have tried many different treatments with varying levels of success. Though pharmaceuticals, while treating the symptoms, only worsened the condition or caused unwanted side effects like dry hair or hairloss.
When someone gave me a bit of this Neem oil to try as a treatment it worked as well as all the pharmaceuticals Ive tried with no noticed side effects. Ive been using this for 3 months now and can say that my psoriasis is fully under control. I haven had discomfort in all this time and still haven noticed any side effects.
And I have grown accustomed to the odd smell. Whenever I smell it I am reminded of the blessed healing we get from nature.
From the depths of my heart, thank you Faithful to Nature!10/02/2015, By OliviaThis oil gave me the worst skin rash known to man...my entire body was enflamed and covered in a red pimply rash, very itchy and really awful. No warning signs on the bottle. It took my skin a month to look almost normal. This was a very severe allergic reaction. So please ensure that you are not allergic to any of the ingredients first, before fully applying.05/09/2014, By CoemarSmells terrible. Used it once as lotion and never again. Not sure if it worked as a moisturizer or not.10/03/2014, By JustineUnbelievably foul smell although works like a bomb on pimples (mix with tea tree to mask smell). Amazing for lice and also little hot spots on pets. If you can deal with the smell or blend it with other oils, healing benefits of Neem oil are phenomenal - it works quickly and effectively :-)
