Neem has a long history of use in Ayurveda. Women have used the healing properties of Neem for centuries in India as part of a herbal beauty tradition. A bath with a decoction of Neem leaves keeps skin supple and healthy. Face packs with Neem leaf powder offer emollient and anti-aging action. The antiseptic properties of Neem leaf extract help in controlling acne. Awareness about the benefits of Neem has increased dramatically with increasing awareness of traditional remedies.
The Neem tree has been an integral part of rural life in India. The tree repels insects and its shade became a natural meeting place for people. Offering cool shade from the hot sun, the tree offers sweet, ripe fruit for children. Environmentally, Neem is known as a natural air purifier, keeping the oxygen level in the atmosphere balanced. For centuries Indians have planted this tree in the vicinity of their homes.
