The Skin-Loving Benefits of Neem Powder

Benefits of Using Neem powder

Ayurvedic practices and medicines prize the neem tree very highly. The Neem tree is quite literally ‘natures drug store’ due to its highly antibacterial properties. The tree’s bark, flowers, seeds, twigs and leaves are all used to create medicines, soaps, toothpastes and even repellents. We at Ayumi use neem in our natural wellbeing products, harnessing the plants incredible cleansing and detoxing properties to care for your skin. One of the ways that this incredible tree is used in skincare and haircare, is in the form of a powder. Neem powder comes from drying and grinding neem leaves until a fine green powder forms.

Treat Dandruff

Although dandruff is harmless, it can be embarrassing. Dandruff occurs when your scalp shreds its skin cells or from your skin being too dry. You can treat dandruff by adding neem powder to water and applying the mixture to your hair.

How to use: Leave this for 30 minutes and then rinse thoroughly. If you do this regularly you can help ease and reduce dandruff.
