Why is Neem known as Queen of The Skin? Neem has been named “Queen of The Skin” due to it’s biofilm blasting abilities. John Douillard recently did some groundbreaking research and the following is an except from his most recent article “Inhibit Intestinal Biofilm with Neem ‘The Village Pharmacy’”, we have linked the article and his youtube video below. We would love everyone to watch and learn from this!
John Douillard writes... “The Queen of the Skin One of neem’s greatest claims to fame is its powerful support for a healthy complexion. Generally, the leaves, fruit and seeds were eaten all spring and summer to support the appearance of healthy radiant skin, earning it the nickname, the “Queen of the Skin.” The little-known truth is that neem supports the outer skin by supporting the inner skin. The skin that lines your gut wall is the most important skin of the body. It is here that neem’s benefits are the most dramatic. Incredibly, perhaps as a spring cleaning back up plan, neem leaves have the ability to perform many of the same actions that the bitter roots, greens, and berries accomplish each spring—the scrubbing, cleansing, and fertilizing of the intestinal wall. By promoting a healthy intestinal environment each spring and summer, neem allows for the proliferation of beneficial gut microbes. The more we bolster a healthy microbial environment in the spring and summer, the better the gut can perform as your first defense. One could say that optimal health is all about the skin—inner and outer. The skin on both the inside and outside of the body is home to trillions of microbes that support optimal health. Neem may be the original prebiotic, as it seems to encourage the necessary environment the gut requires to unleash the body’s most powerful immune response—gut immunity.”

What is different with the All About Neem Capsules compared to others I see around? We have many differences than the other Neem capsules you may see online or in the store. The most important difference is in the freshness and quality of the Neem we use. We sustainably source the greenest, highest quality Neem from family farms and then slow dry the leaves under shade before grinding or pressing. Our products are also manufactured in the USA in an FDA compliant facility. All About Neem also uses 1500 mg of Neem Leaf and Neem Extract in each capsule, which makes our capsules a more economical purchase; as most other brands are only 500 mg and require you to take more. We are very proud to be a small, woman owned business and spreading the good news of Neem to the WORLD!
When choosing an all-natural hair shampoo &/or conditioner - what should I look for? Hi! You should be on the lookout for plant based shampoos that contain essential oils. Avoid harsh chemicals such as Sodium Lauryl Sulfate/Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Fragrance, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, and Silcones. These ingredients are found in most traditional shampoos and conditoners. Sulfates strip the hair of the natural oils and silicones coat the hair to give false shine and softness. These two processes, done repeatedly every day, cause damage as the hair becomes dry, brittle and weak.
You instead want to look for products that are plant based and contain skin loving essential oils that will replenish the scalp and hair, while cleansing. Neem Queen’s herbal essentials shampoo and Neem Queen's herbal essentials conditioner do just that! The shampoo contains the following oils.. Castor, Olive, Palm, Karanja, Neem, Coconut, Flax and Moringa that all work together to remove buildup while replenishing and nourishing. The herbal essentials conditioner follow with neem seed oil and neem bark tea so hydrate and enhance softness and shine, the natural way! Also, Since about 60% of the products your on your body and hair dissolve into your blood and organs, you should always choose the safe and toxic-free products for you and your family!
My pet has allergies, does All About Neem make any products that could help with her allergies? Yes! We have a number of products that dramatically improve the allergies of our pets! We will recommend several steps depending on what kind of allergies your pet is experiencing. If your pet is experiencing seasonal allergies to grass/pollen we would recommend sprinkling their food with Neem Bark Powder. This will increase the bodies response to outside allergens and improve the regulation of the immune system.
If your pet is experiencing skin breakouts or hot spots we recommend the pet shampoo bar. We also have several creams (pain relief, anti-fungal & rash relief) that will aid your pet with various ailments that may arise.
I have arthritis in my knees and lower back and I was wondering if Neem had a product to help alleviate pain/stiffness? Hello there, yes! We have several recommendations for you with this condition.
We have several Neem products to recommend for Arthritis pain and stiffness. The first being Neem Oil. When applied topically, directly to inflamed joints the phenolic compounds and polysaccharides in Neem are delivered straight to the area of concern. These two properties of Neem Oil are the most beneficial in treating BOTH inflammation and pain. Massage the oil onto the affected areas three times a day.
The second product we would recommend are Neem Capsules. Neem helps to create a homeostasis (or balance) within the body and immune system. This balance directly affects the progression of arthritis by preventing the inflammation internally. We recommend taking one capsule three times a day, with a full glass of water each time.
The third product we would recommend is our Neem Oil Pain Cream. This cream contains Neem Oil as well as therapeutic and beneficial essential oils to help treat pain and inflammation. The essential oils are Frankincense, Lavender, Ginger, Myrrh, and Lemongrass. We would suggest you to use the Neem Oil or Neem Oil Pain Cream, or alternate the use of each product. We think you will find GREAT relief.
As with any new supplement its important to talk to your trusted healthcare provider to ensure there are no contraindications with any medications or supplements you’re currently taking.
My child has a rash on his bottom that won't go away - is there a product that you have that could help? Hi! Yes, we would recommend the Baby’s Bottom Rash Relief cream. This cream is packed with nutrients to help heal and soothe your baby’s delicate skin and heal the irritations ASAP.
The amazing combination of Aloe, Neem, Moringa and Zinc work in harmony to soothe, relieve pain, nourish and heal. It works wonderfully on skin irritations, and provides a nice barrier, which aids healing.
Arnica is a natural pain reliever that also stimulates the body’s healing processes, which will help your baby to be comfortable while the cream is working.
Zinc is an essential trace mineral that is utilized by the body for many systemic functions. Applying Zinc topically not only speeds healing and prevents further infections, it also gives your body a boost of this key nutrient. Baby’s Bottom cream also uses Zinc as a barrier to seal moisture away.
We hope your baby (and you) are able to find relief fast! We have heard from many parents that they use this cream on a regular basis as a preventative and have much success with that.
I have diabetes but I want to take Neem capsules, is it safe or beneficial to me? We strongly believe that Neem capsules can benefit everyone. It’s important to take special precaution when dealing with diagnosed medical conditions and it’s also important to remember that our recommendations should never replace the opinion/advice of a medical professional. Before stopping or adding any new supplements to your diet its important to consult your trusted medical professional.
Diabetes is a chronic, metabolic disease characterized by elevated levels of blood glucose (or blood sugar), which, if left untreated may also pose serious damage to the heart, blood vessels, eyes, kidneys, and nerves. Neem can help reverse the damage caused to these body systems and also improve bodily functions.
Neem capsules will help detox the buildup of chemicals in your liver from prescription medication use. Neem also helps naturally regulate blood sugar levels, which sometimes can interfere with insulin use. It is very, very important to test blood sugar at least daily when taking Neem capsules. You may see that your need for insulin decreases as you start detoxifying your body and your normal body functions regulate.
Neem leaves are loaded with flavonoids, triterpenoid, anti-viral compounds and glycosides, which may help manage blood sugar levels and ensure there is no surge in glucose.
"I forgot to put on sunblock and now I have a sunburn - What can I do?" The first thing you need to do is take a cool or lukewarm Neem Tub Tea bath and then treat your skin with a high quality moisturizer that will sooth, heal and protect. Our Beta Neem Cream contains all the essentials you need. Hemp oil, Jojoba oil, Zinc Oxide and Neem oil.
Hemp oil is rich in the fatty acids Omega 3 and Omega 6, as well as amino acids that aid in collagen and elastin production. Hemp oil also has many phytonutrients that work in conjunction with our other healing essential oils to nurture and feed your skin!
Zinc Oxide creates a barrier on the skin and reflects the harmful UVA and UVB rays, protecting against future sunburn. Zinc Oxide is also a wonderful natural healing agent, and when applied topically on sunburn delivers the nutrients where your body needs it most.
Geranium oil is an anti-inflammatory and antiseptic that is beneficial in this cream to prevent acne as well as regulate the oil production of the pores. Added bonus, it also has a sweet, uplifting smell that inspires relaxation!
Make sure to drink plenty of water and take Neem capsules to avoid dehydration and help your body heal from the inside out! The high vitamin E and antioxidant levels in Neem will help deeply moisturize and heal the skin
Neem contains anti-inflammatory and aspirin-like substances that can help reduce the pain and swelling associated with sunburn and rid the skin of bacteria. If blisters form, don’t break them! They contain your natural body fluid and are a protective layer. Instead, treat them with Neem oil. This will help to heal them faster and keep infectious bacteria away from open wounds.

Joan from Florida asked: What is the best bang for my buck? I am a busy mom and want to stay protected and keep my kids protected from all the parasites, bugs & mosquitoes? What a great question and one that I can fully relate to. There are so many uses of neem and being raised in Florida as well, we've searched for a natural bug spray to protect us. I have been a busy productive mom for almost 40 years, happily married for over 43 years, a grandmother for over 11 years a world traveler for way over 50 years and an entrepreneur way before the spelling & definition of this word was realized.
Four decades ago, I designed and created my first and LAST petite needle point boldly announcing a newly realized “mom” secret: “If mother isn’t HAPPY, nobody is HAPPY!” Now that I am 40 years older with much more life experience, I decided to edit that ole “truth”: If mother isn’t HEALTHY, nobody is HEALTHY."

Jill asks: I have toenail fungus. I used your neem cream on skin. It worked great and made my old ugly feet look and feel better. But, I'm using tea tree oil on the nail. Is there something better or stronger I could use? Thanks for any help. Good Morning Jill! You have a great question. We have had the opportunity to work directly with toe nail fungus so the suggestions that I will make are based upon our experience. Neem is anti fungal so there is a good start!
