Neem Seed Oil
Neem seed oil has been hailed as one of "nature's miracles." It is used predominantly for its antibacterial properties, but it has many more attributes that make it an amazing oil. It helps tremendously with the healing process, and neem seed oil is antiseptic and helps to regenerate damaged cells. Restoring and conditioning, this oil helps to keep skin smooth and healthy. As a natural antiviral, neem seed oil can be used on viral skin infections, such as cold sores. It may also be used on psoriasis and other skin diseases with great results. Use on sensitive skin, itching and sunburns to soothe and calm irritations.
This oil is very pungent. It reminds me of being in an authentic Thai restaurant.
