In India, it is thought that the each part of the neem tree has a different medicinal property. The therapeutic benefits of neem are even spoken about in the ancient Vedas, the oldest texts of Sanscript literature. It has been widely used in Ayurvedic, unani and homeopathic medicine for thousands of years. The Sanskrit name of the neem tree is Arishtha which means "reliever of sickness". It is also known as Indian Lilac or Persian Lilac. Our Neem Leaf Powder comes from the neem evergreen tree and is cultivated in India, like it has been for thousands of years.

The tree is still regarded as the 'village dispensary' in India. It was recognized in Indian culture that neem has the potential for an abundance of medicinal applications. So much so that the neem tree was recognized by the National Academy of Sciences. In 1992, this extremely reputable organization, founded by Alexander Dallas Bache and Abraham Lincoln, published a report entitled "Neem – a tree for solving global problems".

More than 135 compounds have been isolated from various components of neem. These compounds can be split into two major classes: isoprenoids and non-isoprenoids. Some noteworthy biological constituents of neem include azadirachtin, meliacin, gedunin, salanin, nimbin, valassin and many other major bioactive potential compounds. Today, this has led to many commercial formulated products such as garden spray, insect and pest repellant, skin care products, acne remedies, hair oil, and head lice shampoo.

Neem oil, bark and leaf extracts have been therapeutically used as alternative medicine to possibly support the body's natural healing response to leprosy, intestinal helminthiasis, respiratory disorders, constipation, rheumatism, chronic syphilitic sores, and indolent ulcers. Traditional medicine documents that when neem bark, leaf, root, flower and fruit are combined it may support the body's natural ability to alleviate blood morbidity, biliary afflictions, itching, skin ulcers, burning sensations and pthysis.
