What the brand says: Kama Ayurveda’s Neem Oil is 100% pure and cold-pressed from organic Neem Seeds from the farms of Tamil Nadu. Rich in antioxidants, Neem Oil has been used for centuries for treating both skin and hair disorders. Its antibacterial action treats skin issues such as acne, rashes, hyper-pigmentation, burns and abrasions while protecting and moisturizing with its high Essential Fatty Acid and Vitamin content.
Packaging: The neem oil comes in the usual kama Ayurveda bottles with golden aluminium screw-cap.
Texture: The oil is quite viscous but easy to use on skin and hair. Application and washing off is effortless.
Fragrance: The oil has a very nauseating strong herbal smell which is the only con!
How I use and staying power: Neem oil can be used in a number of ways and here are some tried-and-tested suggestions:
Acne remedy: Use the oil as a facial massage oil or apply on face before you take a facial steam. You can also mix it up with your face masks, face creams etc. To use as a night treatment, Add few drops in your night cream or facial oil and use it as usual.
Dandruff/Scalp acne/Lice remedy: To use this oil for majority of hair problems especially for dandruff, scalp acne and lice, simply use it directly on the scalp and massage for few minutes. Keep it for 1 hour and shampoo it off. You can also dilute it in coconut or olive oil and then use if you have extremely inflamed scalp due to dandruff.
Mosquito Repellent: Apply this oil on skin before bedtime to prevent mosquito bites. You can also add few drops in your body lotion and use it as a mosquito repellent cream.
Body acne/Bumps: You can use this oil to massage your body before applying soap or you may add few drops of this oil to your hot bathing water.
The oil works great for skin, body and hair and I have been regularly using it. I like to use it with my night cream and it does not feel greasy as the night cream itself is matte. Definitely prevents and heals acne and wards off dandruff in just one use. Neem oil is something one should definitely own since its a multipurpose ayurvedic product and nothing works better than organic and natural ingredients!
