Neem Salve

$28.00


Neem Oil is derived from the seeds and fruits of the Azadirachta indica tree, native to India. It's often referred to as "the village pharmacy" since it's list of uses and benefits are so long. Neem's antifungal, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties make it ideal for treating fungal infections of the skin, psoriasis, athletes foot, acne, eczema, rashes, and skin irritations. It's also an extremely effective insect repellant.

Living in the Adirondack mountains, I'm no stranger to swarms of black flies, clouds of mosquitos, and hordes of no-see-ums. I've tried all of the "natural" insect repellants out there on the market with no luck, increased frustration, and many, many insect bites. One day this summer while "field-testing" this new salve, I happened to be clearing brush on my land where a new high tunnel greenhouse will go. I noticed immediately, that not only was I not being affected by insect bites, they were avoiding me in droves. Four hours later, working in the heat and humidity in the heart of black-fly and mosquito season, and still, no bites with no re-application of the Salve. I was ecstatic. This product works better than any citronella, insect repellant, "natural" or otherwise, I've ever tried, including DEET.

In this formulation, I've blended Neem Oil with Organic Beeswax, Calendula-infused Jojoba Oil, and Coconut Oil, all for their skin loving, healing, and regenerative properties. I've masked the funky Neem aroma with a blend of soothing Peppermint, Eucalyptus, and Lemon Essential Oils. I added Tea Tree Essential Oil for it's anti-fungal and antibacterial properties, and topped it all off with a healthy dose of Arborvitae essential oil, (the "tree of life") for it's grounding, purifying, and healing abilities. Take this on your next tropical vacation this winter or use on the homestead for the BEST insect deterrent you will ever use. Listing is for one 1.8 oz. jar. Enjoy!
