Neem Seed Oil for Skin And Oral Health

Neem seed essential oil is one oil that has been used extensively by our ancestors all their lives. Be it for oral health, the health and care of skin and the getting rid of skin infections were all dealt by neem seed oil.

It’s true that using Neem oil and other topical acne treatments can make a big difference for some patients; but for more severe acne symptoms, or for certain skin types, advanced cosmetic skin treatments might be the better option. Laser-based skin treatments like IPL Photofacial, Blue Light Therapy, and even Fraxel Laser Resurfacing can be effective when it comes to removing deep-set acne scars and blemishes.

Neem oil will help clean and treat excessive oil production and clogged pores, but it can’t help erase deeper cystic acne, or remove old acne scars. That’s why, for the most enhanced skin rejuvenation results, consumers might want to try combining Neem oil with laser treatments, or with Microdermabrasion and/or Chemical Peels to treat acne symptoms in a more complete manner.

If you’re interested in professional laser skin care procedures, or dermabrasion and peel treatments for your acne, we recommend visiting with a trusted dermatologist or cosmetic provider in your area. They can give you an in-depth skin assessment and make informed recommendations concerning which acne treatments will yield the best results for you.

A search of Pubmed reveals over 400 different studies on Neem oil most of which deal with its antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory effects. The data indicates that Neem does live up to its reputation as a wonder drug, at least in many respects.

There are studies showing that it gets rid of camel ticks, it’s a spermicide, stops hamsters from getting cheek cancer, it’s good for sheeps’ digestive systems, kills head lice, helps against some types of diabetes, repels mosquitoes, and stops mange. It’s also effective against -

  • Plaque
  • Cavities,

can interrupt the breeding cycle of the diamondback moth, and guards against some forms of gastic cancer. To name a few.

However, in all these studies (and I reviewed all 448 of them!) I couldn’t find a single reference to any testing on acne or eczema. Now, that doesn’t mean necessarily mean that Neem DOESN’T work. It is a plausible theory since it does have antibacterial properties. But there maybe other effects to consider. For example, it could kill the bacteria that cause acne (P. acnes) but it could also contribute to acne by clogging pores. Without some kind of test data it’s all speculation and hearsay.

Rural Indian Use Neem Toothbrush For Healthy Teeth

Neem – The Ancient Toothbrush / Paste

I was caught off guard when I first got to know that neem stick was chewed by myriad India in place of toothbrush and toothpaste!?

And then I pondered over the concept…you know I had heard a lot about neem and it’s properties to maintain the oral hygiene…and then everything started falling in place..as to why is such the case…here’s how
Neem is considered (actually it literally is) one of the major products used in developing countries for oral hygiene……I’ll exemplify……..India…It has been into toothpastes using neem from decades…okay centuries actually….
The custom has been somewhat like…A neem tig is chewed by a person till it appears to be like a brush…because of the chewing…..and then uses it to brush the teeth….And for your information chewing neem tree’s chewing sticks are a common form of oral hygiene tool used in the Middle East and many other parts of the world…yet the most catchy thing bout this custom is that is science supporting it too…..

As per certain studies that have been conducted regarding the custom….it has come to fore that there are IN FACT beneficial effects in using these sticks..
   Anti-plaque
   Anti-cavity and
   Antibacterial

These 3 qualities of neem  make it most desirable..And that is the basically the biggest reason for developing countries to recommend the use of these neem sticks as a medium to improve the dental/ oral health of it’s people…

SO WHY NEEM?
hmm…..Neem because…a tree belonging to the mahogany family in tropical and semi-tropical regions…….and it hails from India…..Myanmar….Bangladesh….Sri Lanka and Pakistan…
It’s not just about being used as a toothbrush…neem has much more to it…The tree has been revered as the “village pharmacy” because people genuinely believe in it’s many magical healing properties and its power to fight any physical ill….
you know there’s nothing about this tree that won’t benefit us…right from it’s toothbrushes…..its bark is used for treating gum diseases……its oil  is used for making for soap……..and its leaves for medicinal uses….
So…Neem in its full bloom can benefit us…heal our ills..and keep us smelling fresh & keeping well as far as the oral hygiene is concerned…

Neem Seed Oil’s Numerous Benefits

The oil of Neem is absolutely wonderful. It is renowned world over, all the ones who once started to use the oil, still continue to do so for its various amazing health benefits. By health I mean the external as well as internal health of a being.

The Neem Tree (Azadirachta indica) also known as indian lilac or margosa) probably originated in India or Burma. Neem is a large, fast-growing evergreen that can reach approximately 40 to 80 feet (12 to 24 m) in height. The tree is drought resistant and heat tolerant, and may live up to 200 years. It grows in many Asian countries, as well as tropical areas of the western hemisphere. Neem oil, which is extracted from the tree’s seeds, has been used for its medicinal and insecticidal properties for more than 4,000 years.

Since ancient times, man has utilized neem products for their pest-repellent properties. Neem has been shown to ward off sand flies and mosquitoes, aiding in control of the spread of diseases such as malaria. Neem oil has been used to treat lice and scabies, and tea brewed from the leaf of the tree employed as a termite control. Neem leaves placed in the pockets of woolen clothing are said to fend off moths; added to stored grains and beans, they help keep insects out. Neem products are included in some dog soaps and shampoos to repel fleas and ticks, and used as a cattle-feed supplement to kill parasites. The application of neem derivatives to bags and stored grains provides safe and relatively inexpensive protection against -

  • Insect pests
  • Fungus
  • Rats
  • Reducing post-harvest losses in developing countries

Neem is considered harmless to humans, animals, birds, beneficial insects and earthworms, and has been approved by the US Environmental Protection Agency for use on food crops. Azadirachtin and other active ingredients in the neem seed have insecticidal properties that are effective against a broad spectrum of insects, many mites and nematodes, and even snails and fungi, and do not seem to generate resistance in the pests they affect.

Neem products do not provide absolute insect control, but frequent applications can reduce pest populations dramatically by repelling them; inhibiting their larval development, growth, fertility, mating and egg laying, and deterring feeding. A solution of neem oil smothers insect pests and has antifungal properties as well — the oil coats the plant’s surface and prevents the germination of fungal spores. Neem oil can also be used as a safe, natural leaf polish.
