Neem oil comes from the seeds of the Neem tree, one of the most important and widely used Ayurvedic plants in India. It has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, insect repellent, emollient and nourishing properties and penetrates easily but is best associated with essential oils to soften its particular roasted smell. For an impure skin the essential oils of tea tree, laurel or palmarosa can be mixed, to strengthen its antifungal action those of tea tree, geranium or palmarosa are suitable.
The Neem tree is also called neem, nimtree or Indian lilac.
