Virgin, cold pressed neem seed oil has many benefits, both therapeutic and medicinal. It is antiseptic, antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal. This oil can be applied directly to the skin or included in skincare formulas designed to treat problematic skin. It is exceptionally rich and has an unusual odour. Some would say unpleasant. Neem oil will solidify at room temperature so for extra pourability mix it with 10% olive oil.
