The Neem tree has been around for thousands of years. Its use is widely varied it is affectionately dubbed as the “village pharmacy”. It hails from India and Asia and can be taken internally (Leaf & Bark) and topically (Neem seed oil).
Neem oil is rich in essential fatty acids and is considered cooling, astringent and soothing. Neem oil is applied topically and is anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal. Organix South understands the vitality of Neem. This is why Organix South is the world’s primary manufacturer of certified Neem products. An adopter of Neem under the Adopt-A-Herb program, Organix South has created award-winning products. One of them being TheraNeem Nail & Cuticle Oil.
I’ve had the pleasure in experiencing this product for the last few weeks.
The TheraNeem Nail & Cuticle oil strengthens nails and softens cuticles and supports healthy nails. It can be used as an anti-fungal for nail fungus. While raw Neem has a nutty, garlicky smell, the Nail oil is a combination of Neem with other essential oils that make for a heavenly scent.
