Neem Healing – Traditional and Historical Uses

Neem has been used in ancient Ayurveda & Unani medicine for over 5,000 years in India where it is revered as “The Wonder Tree” and as “The Village Pharmacy”. All parts of the tree are used. The leaves, seeds, bark, fruit, extracts and oils derived from these, have very specific applications in medicine, toiletries and cosmetics, public health, agriculture and pest control.

In Sanskrit writings the Neem Tree is known as “Aristha” – meaning the reliever of all diseases and it use in Hindu medicine dates back to early times.


Whilst there are limited approvals by the regulatory authorities in Australia for Neem products we believe that its use for over 5,000 years by millions of people for many complaints demonstrates that it can be used in a number of ways to benefit humans for a wide range of ailments, some of which are summarised in the attached schedule. In the interest of providing further & better information we suggest that pregnant & lactating women & those wishing to become pregnant should avoid using Neem products unless recommended by their health practioner.

We further acknowledge that we make no claims to cures which may or may not be directly related to Neem but we submit that the use of Neem and the anecdotal evidence suggests that Neem may assist humans to cure themselves. Remember also, that in great traditional medical systems or folk medicines such as in China or India, the therapeutic value of substances were discovered by trying out herbs and other natural substances and finding out what worked for the patient by experience. That approach is still valid. Natural products are meant to support the body’s attempts to maintain good health.

Professional advice should be sought prior to using medicines and botanicals and the same procedure should be used with Neem.
