According to Ayurveda, Neem is a very special medicine for the hair. Its cooling properties are a great
remedy to nourish the scalp while preserving the coolness of both the skin and hair.
Neem is one of the most widely used herbal remedies in Ayurveda as well as in cosmetic treatments.
Neem leaves as well as the fruits of the Neem tree are used for various purposes. Ayurveda states that
all parts of the Neem plant have medicinal value.
Even our ancestors believed from ancient times that kohlrabi leaves have antiseptic properties.
Due to that belief, ancient people hung neem leaves in front of their houses when there is a patient
who is suffering from diseases such as chicken pox.
Also, when such diseases occurred, the patient is made to lie on a bed filled with neem leaves due to the
antiseptic and cooling properties of neem.
Both Indian as well as Sri Lankan women follow the ancient practice of taking a bath with neem water to
defeat various skin allergies and to cool down the scalp.
According to Ayurveda, beauty products with neem extracts are also suitable for people with acne as
well as oily skin. The extract of neem leaves removes acne scars caused by bacterial infections and gives
you a beautiful skin.
Furthermore, to prevent hair loss, washing the head using boiled water with neem leaves is something
we have been practicing since ancient times. It is even mentioned in ancient Ayurvedic books that
washing the head using boiled water with neem leaves helps to get rid of dandruff.
As such, all parts of the neem plant inclusive of its leaves, flowers, seeds, bark and roots are used in
Ayurveda as a herbal ingredient that is used to keep the skin healthy and prevent dandruff while also
making your hair healthy. All in all, neem is a valuable gift from nature to mankind that helps us kill
numerous types of germs.
