Many legends are associated with the Neem tree, which has been considered sacred since ancient times. Although it has been attributed with miraculous powers, it is also known to be a powerful anti-fungal. Neem is a dark, thick oil with a distinctive odor. It has strong antimicrobial activity, which makes it useful when combined with essential oils for cuts, scrapes and wounds. Neem is antifungal and can be used for treating athlete's foot and acne. It is also useful in cases where skin problems do not respond to other treatments, such as eczema, psoriasis, and burns. Be sure to purchase the oil pressed from the seed, not extracted from the leaves. Heat gently in a hot water bath to liquefy.
