How to Get Your Hands on this Wonder Leaf

If you want to use Neem for cosmetic or medicinal purposes, you should look for high-quality, cold pressed pure oil.

It is usually available online, as well as in Indian specialty stores.

It is very potent, and when used in its purest form may irritate the skin, so it's best to dilute it with coconut oil, mixing in a few drops of a pleasantly-scented essential oil such as lavender or lemon.

Caution is urged before using Neem internally.

Though it may seem like a miracle drug, experts advise that it can have harmful side effects. It is common for people to be allergic to Neem.

This can lead to hives, wheezing, and difficulty in breathing. It can also harm the kidneys and liver if not used appropriately.
