Neem oil is a natural pesticide that has been in use since the ancient time. It is really bitter in taste and has a sulfur smell in it. Neem oil is used in various skin care products because of its rich nutrients that help and protects the skin from all kinds of environmental damage. Because of containing a lot of anti-oxidants, it considered as helpful natural solution for skin. Neem is very much skin-friendly that it is used in all most every soap, hair product and cosmetics. It is very effective in healing dry and damaged skin because it is enriched with fatty acids and Vitamin E. It can go deep into the skin and can heal minuscule cracks. Neem is also used as a classic remedy for curing skin acne. It contains an Aspirin type element that kills bacteria. So it needs no explanations that neem oil is very helpful for skin and has been proven a blessing for damaged skin.

In this article, I will talk about how to make neem oil to apply in the skin. So let’s get into the procedures.

Neem oil can be extracted from two sources. One is from the Kernel of the plant. The other one is the leaves and stem parts of the plant. It is quite difficult to collect seed kernel and make the neem oil out of it. It also gives a strong bitter smell which gets intolerable. That’s why most of the user prefers the leaf extracts. Oil from the leaf can be extracted in 3 different ways.

  • Neem oil cold preparation
  • Neem oil hot preparation
  • Neem water extracts

Water extraction method is not suitable to make the oil for skin; rather it’s useful for gardening purpose. That’s why, we will not include this one in our article.

Oil cold preparation

Ingredients: Tight glass jar, Coconut oil, Neem leaves.

Procedure:

  • At first, wash the leaves with water and be careful that it doesn’t have any accumulated dust or sands.
  • Get the leaves water free and keep it for some while until the water evaporates.
  • Put the leaves in a jar in a way that it doesn’t cover the whole space of the jar and now pour coconut oil in the jar of leaves.
  • Tightly close the jar with the lid and keep it in room temperature for 2 weeks. Keep it totally away from the sun.
  • After 2 weeks, open the jar and pour the oil in a bowl. Therefore, you will get neem infused coconut oil. 

Oil hot preparation

Ingredients: Saucepan, Sieve, Neem leaves with stem, Coconut oil.

Procedure:

  • At first, wash the leaves with water and be careful that it doesn’t have any accumulated dust or sands.
  • Heat up a good amount of coconut oil in the saucepan until the oil becomes perfectly transparent.
  • Then make a thick paste of neem leaves and stem by grinding it with the help of your grinder.
  • When the oil becomes transparent, put the paste in the saucepan and leave it to boil. When it is boiled keep it on the saucepan few minutes more until the liquid in the saucepan becomes green.
  • Now pour the oil after filtering, in a glass tight jar with lid.

The second method, that is the oil hot preparation is more useful and gives the more essential output. I will suggest to using this technique to get the most effective solution.

I hope this article will be helpful for everyone, especially those, who wants to cure their damaged skin with proper nutrients which is available in neem.
