Many herbal beauty formulations launched by Herbally Radiant, especially lotions, contain Azadirachta indica oil, i.e., Neem Oil. It has amazing medicinal properties which help in protecting skin against pollution and other damage.

Use of Neem as a medicinal herb dates back over 5000 years.  All parts of Neem tree (leaves, fruit, seeds and even the bark) are used for for different medical products. Following are the key benefits of this wonderful tree :

1. Use of neem oil on skin is well known to rejuvenate the skin. It promotes collagen and works effectively in the treatment of many skin conditions, including acne.  The 'Clean' range of Cleanser, Toner and Serum, especially launched by Herbally Radiant, to treat acne disorders has many more plant-based ingredients.

2. Neem has been proclaimed to be the best product available in treating psoriasis - its pills can be ingested daily for complete relief.

3. Another way to treat psoriasis as well as eczema, skin ulcers, fungal conditions, cold sores and athletes foot, is to mix 1 tablespoon neem oil and 4 oz of olive oil. It should be applied at least two times daily to the affected areas.

4. Neem contains powerful anti-fungal properties that have been shown to aid in the treatment of athletes foot, yeast infections, thrush and even ringworm.

5. Neem paste applied directly to the sores caused by itching will provide quick relief and reduce scarring.

6. Use of neem based powder for jock itch will reduce the itching, dry the area and kill the fungus. For severe cases, a neem lotion would be more effective. Herbally Radiant has included neem oil in its popular body lotions.

7. For shining hair and preventing hair loss, mix a few drops of neem oil with coconut or olive oil and massage into scalp. This will help growth of hair and will prevent hair turning grey.

8. For inflammation, pain and swelling of the joints associated with arthiritis, neem oil can be gently massaged as it changes the immune system's response to arthiritis and can halt its progress.

9. When ingested in the form of pills, it cleanses the blood, stimulates antibody protection and strengthens the immune system, thereby strengthening body's resistance to many diseases.

Neem oil should always be stored in a cool dark place; if the oil solidifies it can be placed in warm water to bring it back to liquid form.
