Examples of Using  Leaves Year Round

  • Mushing the leaves into a paste for topical skin rash.

  • Dried herbs and capsules containing Neem aid gastrointestinal inflammation.
  • Making a powder and sprinkling around your home, to prevent flea and tick infestations.
  • Making Potions and Poultices for Livestock.

Examples of Using Neem Bark and Roots

  • Removing too much of the bark will in fact kill the Azadirachta indica tree rendering it useless. The bark is the most unused part of the tree, due to it’s slow regeneration. This isn’t always true for all trees, especially evergreens, but it is always better to under harvest instead of over harvesting.
  • The Bark of the tree itself is a highly concentrated version of the leaf and seed of the Neem tree, making it an extremely potent anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and antiseptic.
  • The Bark and Roots can be ground up into a fine powder and used in the same ways as the leaves, helping fight gingivitis, and improve overall dental health by preventing cavities and disinfecting any possible gum sores or wounds.
  • Neem oil often is found in many organic toothpastes, health products and mouthwashes for it’s powerful antiseptic properties, and since it may be safely consumed in small amounts it is completely non-toxic. There are even capsule forms.

Warnings About Neem

  • It is non-toxic to birds, bees, mammals, and plants.
  • It is, however, toxic to fish and other aquatic organisms.

Children are sometimes more sensitive to natural pesticides, if a sensitivity is present. With Neem, recent studies have found that there is no data to show that children have any different mortality rate, or effectiveness, from conception to birth, and through out childhood at any level of exposure. If a sensitivity exists in an individual it may be carried from childhood or possibly have developed over time so my best advice is to use it with caution as any other strongly concentrated chemical. Respect the divine life-giving tree and it will surely come in handy when the time calls for it’s uses.
