Benefits of Neem leaves

Today, I would be sharing with you some home remedies which use neem leaves. Neem is the best natural medicine available. It can take care of things from skin disorders to health problems. We will talk about the beauty aspects of neem.

  • I know this one is the most difficult. Chew everyday 2-3 leaves of Neem. I know it sounds disgusting. Believe me, it tastes really horrible. I have done it. At last, I could not bear to chew so I started swallowing the leaves. Wash them properly before in taking them. Do not boil them. A help would be take them with honey or jaggery. And, follow it up with a glass of water. Do not worry if you vomit in the starting days. Your body and taste buds will adapt gradually to it. And, the results are too good to ignore. In take of neem leaves would clean your system internally, improve the body metabolism and toxins elimination process. It would clean your blood of impurities and as a result, give you a clear skin. It even helps you get rid of constipation and improves your immune system.
  • You can boil neem leaves in water and pour the water in your bath tub or use it for bathing. It would get rid of all skin disorders gradually. It helps in getting rid of bacteria at private parts and even the repelling body odor.
  • If you get any skin allergy, boil the neem leaves and apply the water on the allergy after letting it cool. Chilled will work even better. It will soothe your skin. And, the allergy will subside in a day or two. Last September, I had got this severe allergy which my dermatologist could not even diagnose. It had subsided with application of neem water.You can even apply neem paste on your allergies. I think it should be more effective.
  • You can store the neem water in small batches and use it to make face packs. It would be great help with pimples and acne.
  • If you get hold of neem oil, it treats acne really quick. Applying neem oil keeps your skin safe from any bacteria and fungal infection.
  • Of course, I forget to mention. Chewing neem leaves would help with cleaning your teeth also. And, just in case, you are thinking that you can substitute neem leaves with neem water. Do not do that. Because, when you boil neem leaves, a strange pungent odor comes which will repel you from drinking the water. Surely, you would even lose you apetite, the odor is that strong.
  • You can make a neem face pack by grinding the neem leaves with some water. It is a great face mask for anti-bacterial purposes. It heals acne really quick.
  • In case of any nicks and cuts, injuries and skin burns, you can apply neem oil, neem water or neem leaves paste over it. It gives great relief.
  • Neem can also be a part of the refreshing face spray.
  • Dry the neem leaves well under sun and powder them. Make small pouches containing the powder and put several of these pouches in your cupboards. Your cupboards would be free of moth infestation. And, you do not have to bother with changing the pouches everyday. They will work up to an year. You can replace them again after an year. You may put your favorite essential oil in the neem leaves powder to impart a pleasant fragrance to your cupboards and clothes.

      Cut off a tiny piece of Neem tree bark, and rub it on a piece of stone with some water. Put the paste thus formed on any acne , and wash it off after sometime. It will be cured in no time.

  1. says

    You can keep boiled neem water up to a week in refrigeration. If you have extra water leftover after a week, pour it in your bath and use it up. And, prepare a fresh batch next time. Always prepare small quantities to ensure freshness and effectiveness.

    How do you make a Neem Water bath?

    1. Ratio of leaves to water while boiling?
    2. Ratio of neem water to tap water (or filtered water? I have severe skin eczema) after the boiling?
    3. Soak overnight then boil or vice versa?
    4. Boil (turns brown) or not (stays green)? (or simply make it lukewarm and not boil).


  3. says

    There are no ratios as such. Neem leaves are pretty strong in odor so it is better you keep towards a lesser side. Using at max of 10 stems of fresh leaves is fine for an immediate water bath.
    If you have a geyser at home, then boil a mug full of water (a liter) with 10 stems separately. Boil the water till its first boil and then out on simmer for half hour so. The water will turn a little greenish in shade and give a pungent odor. Strain and pour it in your bath.
    In case you use a heating rod or gas to boil water, simply put the leaves in the water and boil till the water boils.
    But, in case, you are planning to store the water, it is better you use dried neem leaves.

  4. @nj@li says

    is it effective, if we use neem exract which we get after boiling it in water, to cure severe dandruff infection??

  5. says

    @anjali yes you can also use the neem extract after boiling neem in water….the liquid is very potent and effective in curing all kinds of allergies and infections….

    Hi i would like to knw is Amla juice taken with aloe vera juice also good for acne and acne scars. I suffer from acne and most of the time the marks are left, my MIL in india has been drinking this and her sun burnt marks have faded, i just want to knw if this will help clear my face as well and also if amla churan is more effective or the amla juice. Can you also adv if basil leaves (if eaten) are good for acne as well? Thx

  7. says

    Hi Kat….well I am not sure how much amla juice helps with acne but I can tell you one thing why it worked for your MIL…amla is the richest source of vitamin C and vitamin C helps in collagen repair from inside and detoxifies the body improving the skin texture….thus I think you can drink this on a regular basis if not everyday (may be once in three days)….another added advantage of vitamin C is that it increases absorption of iron in the body which is very important for ladies…aloevera is definitely good as it improves the digestion and gets rid of stomach disorders first and foremost…but I am not very sure how much it would help with acne but my guess is that it should definitely help coz one of the main reasons for acne is when body is not able to throw the wastes properly so this juice will help in that process…and it would definitely bring a glow to your face so thats enough of temptation :)
    regarding amla churan and amla juice I would say that amla juice if freshly squeezed is better otherwise avoid the amls juice coz vitamin C breaks down immediately when it comes in contact with air so if not consumed within 10-15 minutes, it breaks down and does nothing for the body….if you do not have fresh source of amlas for juicing then you can go for amla churan…one tip is that instead of buying the churan from the market, buy around a kilo of amla fruits and dry them in shade for a week or so till they get dried properly…do not dry them in sun….then grind the fruits after removing the seeds and the core (wash the fruits well before drying them and keep them in a clean place so that they don’t get dirty)….the powder will last you a long time…you can also take the powder in the morning along with some milk or honey coz it will be extremely bitter in taste so beware of that…
    and regarding basil leaves they are extremely good for clearing the skin and acne so yes they will help and they are really good for seasoning too….

  8. shan says

    i m having acne scars and holes on my face,i would like to know what is the best way to treat my skin and is there chances 4 me 2 get back my smooth and healthy skin.thanks in advance

  9. says

    hey shan…yes it absolutely possible to get the healthy skin even after a severe acne attack…but since you are saying you have scars and holes on your face, I think it is better you visit a dermatologist to get the extent of damage to your skin checked…home remedies help acne only till the time they are present or you can only treat the scars but no home remedy can help you with holes (I am assuming you meant small craters left in the skin) in the skin…getting a professional advise is wise…coz I am assuming you will probably have to go through some peeling sessions to smooth out the holes part….but if you have only scars to deal with, you can check out my section on Acne Skin Care…it has quite a lot of posts which talks about how to deal with acne and what helps and what doesn’t….one thing I can point out is that you should do regular exfoliation (only if you do not have existing acne)….but before that there are a lot of things on which the treatment whether home or professional is based like the condition of your skin, do you still suffer from acne, severity of your acne and lot more….I hope my answer was useful….please do get back if you have any doubts or questions :)

    Hey hi!!

    After reading your article I have started having neem leaves but I got a doubt.. You say you swallow it without chewing.. so will it work the same way as chewing? Actually even I wanna swallow it as chewing leaves is difficult because of its horrible taste.. so hope you clear my doubt.. Thanks!

    • Anonymous says

      Hi there, I take the neem leaf powder in capsule form. No bitter shock, no nausea. Works great! I take 3 capsules, 3 times per day. I also take triphala caps daily (similar benefts) – really good for skin and the immune system. So, not sure hw much neem I’m actually getting by swallowing in pill form (as I do both), but I feel great an my skin is clear again so I’m happy. I’ve been taking them a little over a month now. There was an initial cleansing of my skin deep layers but now only a couple small red spots that should be wiped out withn a week.

  11. says

    hey…yup swallowing is not a good option actually…coz ven we chew the food we are helping our stomach by breaking down the food so that the nutrients can be absorbed easily but if you we simply swallow the food the stomach has to breakdown the food and in some cases the food passes out as it is without breaking down so chewing is always a better option but neem leaves are so bitter that I tried chewing but it was really bad so I tested swallowing with a lot of water which worked better than chewing but if you can stand chewing it is the best…otherwise pair it with honey….that does seem to help a little bit :) not much though!!!

  13. says

    hey misty…sure it will help you…neem is one of the most potent of ayurveda remedies so do give a try and share your experiences!!!!

  14. says

    hey Sonvi…aloevera does help with scars and all so I guess it should help too…I am not sure coz it does have additives in it which might be irritating to your skin…even then it would be better to couple with other remedies for scars also like applying honey and lemon juice and sandalwood powder and for acne, bring a change in your diet and apply onion juice and garlic juice and ginger juice on the effected areas…also drinking apple cider vinegar at least thrice in a week does wonders for acne and skin overall…take care :)

  18. says

    hey….yup bathing with neem water will definitely help but acne has to be also tackled from the root cause…so try to avoid acidic foods and spicy foods too…detoxify your body from the inside too…that will help a lot…I have done some posts on detoxification…you can go through them…but yes bathing with neem water is definitely helpful…if you want my advise chewing on neem leaves would be the best cure as it will act from inside and cleanse your body…I know its difficult but you can give it a try if you want to…hope this helps :)

    Hello ! I stumbled upon your blog because of my father. He suggested i tried chewing neem leaves and drinking it too. He has been doing it over a week and he told me he feels great and even more energetic. He told me that his diabetic friend started taking neem leaves and over a period of time the stopped taking insulin. I don’t know if that’s possible lol Since i don’t know the guy.

    My father told me he’s gonna give me some leaves to try out because i have acne and acne scars and my immune system it’s not very good, i get headaches every day. The doctors still don’t know why. I also feel tired and weak and dizzy most of the time. I wanna gives neem leaves a try, but i have acid reflux and gastritis and i really don’t want to vomit or have acid reflux pain I’m a big scary cat :( lol

    Should I give it a try?

    bd hey hi….
    how much time we hv to eat neem leaves….??
    &when we get proper releif from acne & pimples…?
    how many leaves we have to eat in a day.??
    plz reply….

  21. says

    hi…eating neem leaves will definitely not bring acidity but vomiting is something which probably might occur in the starting but you get used to the taste of neem leaves afterward…eating the leaves is a good habit and 5 per day is more than enough but I am not sure how much the leaves will help with the headaches and immune system…headaches can be due to the poor dietary habits so taking a balanced diet and enough amount of water may help….try that :)

  22. says

    hey….eating neem leaves is a good habit and not a treatment…in taking it daily will help purify the blood and it is not necessary that the acne and pimples go away just coz you take neem leaves coz they may be occuring due to hormonal problems….but eating neem leaves will help with the digestion and metabolism so it is advised….it might or might not give relief from pimples and breakouts depending on the causes and chewing on 5 leaves daily will really not cause any harm so it can be given a try to know how it benefits the body :)

  23. says

    hey hi…it was a fab article..
    i wanna ask whether swallowing 2-3 leaves a day is sufficient???

    I was used to drinking boiled neem when very young, it is used for malaria treatment then.
    My questions are:
    1. can neem paste be mixed with locally made soap for bathing?
    2. Can drinking the boiled one & also bathing with such soap bring about, pimples, wrinkle free & smooth glowing skin?
    Thanks for your efforts in responding to questions.

  27. says

    hi Stag…yes, as far as I think neem paste can be mixed but how will you mix the soap??? I mean do you prepare the soaps on your own??? you might give it a try then!!! it wouldn’t be reacting harmfully anyways!!! and, yes, using such a soap should definitely help the skin but I wouldn’t say that it can reduce all the skin problems.

    neem oil has just had a drastic effect on my skin. it made my eczema come back. i used a very litle drop of neem oil with about 10 drops of olive oil. earlier dermatologist had said neem leaves r not good for my skin either. so it is best to consult a doctor before use or do a patch test. :(

  29. Shopwrecked says

    I bought some fresh neem leaves to eat and urrrgh – the smell almost made me vomit. Just the idea of chewing them brought tears to my eyes! But I hit on a really good solution – I dried the leaves, crushed them into powder, added water to make a paste, rolled the mixture into pea-size balls, and then coated them in honey! The neem is now much easier to swallow 😀

    Hello Swati. I had a couple of chemical peels on my skin. Actually my skin was never acne prone. After continuous peels I started having painful pimples. Due to my inherent genes, a mark after pimple takes time to go. So, I am suffering from pimple marks on my face too. People suggested me to apply neem leaves and haldi paste on my face for the whole night so that i’d get rid of pimples and marks. 1. Is it safe to apple the paste for the whole night daily ? 2. Can I also drink neem juice? I have also observed that my face has become a bit darker due to the paste application. Your suggestions would mean a lot now.

    • says

      wow…your problem is definitely very complicated…since you have had peels, i would really suggest you to check out with a dermatologist because your skin is very sensitive right now and using anything for hit and trial is not that great an idea!!! and, no, no face mask or anything should be applied for entire night. yes, you can drink neem juice but i don’t really think its an internal problem. i think its due to skin sensitivity that these pimples are coming. I might be wrong though!!
      I would suggest you to apply mint juice or rub cucumber slice on your face. anything acidic will cause problems so stay away from citrus fruits!!! your skin can be prone to hyperpigmentation so i would also suggest you to apply sunscreen regularly in the morning. hope this helps :)

  59. Anonymous says

    Hi Swati, thanks for the reply. The dermatologist himself gave me peels that made me sensitive. Since my face is combination type, can u suggest a very nice non-greasy sunscreen? and yes, i will try mint juice or cucumber! :)

      hmmm…honestly, I don’t trust any derma’s…they all are very money-minded!!!

      swallowing is fine but what happens is that when you chew, you help your body extract maximum nutrients from the food otherwise what happens is that sometimes the thing passes off without getting broken down by the system :) no, it won’t cause any problem so its ok :)

    Is neem from india more bitter than thai version ive heard so but how much when i tried first time it was gross. But now 3 years later i chew 10 in one go easy, this is bevause i know know it is beneficial , i didnt know at firat time so its all in the head. Drinking boiled leavs i do before breakfast and it does not disturb my appetite.

    • says

      may be you are used to the taste now so it doesn’t matter coz I don’t think the Indian neem is more bitter but again if the one you take is a hybrid or something, that might be the case!!!

    hi i had an acne problem on combination skin. i’ve been drinking neem water for a few days now on an empty stomach every morning. and i have also seen some improvement. but my aunt says having neem isnt good for me as my skin is dry and its going to dry even further. is it true? if yes, what can i do to enjoy the benefits of neem and also not suffer from dry skin.

    hi.. i had severe acne problem so i consulted a dermatologist. It cured my acne problem but 2-3 scars are left on my face due to acne ( colour – brown-red ). what should i do to remove them ?

      thanks for the advice but my acne keep coming n going. What should I do to fix this problem permanently? please help

    • says

      actually the reason why you are getting acne is not known so I can’t say how to stop it permanently!!! its better to ask dermatologists for such things coz they can actually tell what exactly is wrong…these home remedies are more of preventive measures than cure! hope you understand :)

    • says

      sorry, can’t help you with that. I don’t even know what they are if you are talking about anything other than normal blemishes!! check this:
      trying these home remedies would help with blemishes!

    Hi Swati, I had been bite by bed bugs terribly couple of months back and even until now, some of the wounds are not fully heal because of the itchiness it caused. So, I had been scratching it and it took longer time to heal. A friend of mind recommending that I should blend the leaves and apply it on the wound daily before bed. Will this work? On another note,will it also heal scars? Appreciate if you’d be able to help.

    hi I resides in Canada … not able to found neem leaves here…. can I user neem powder besides neem leaves… for hair wash,,,

  84. says

    I found that I can only order neem leaf online, and I would think they are dried. would boiling dried neem leaf, have the same effect as fresh neem leaf?

    I have a question , I can’t find Neem leaves any where and I’m too hesitated to use neem oil because of my acne prone skin. Will it be effective if I do a Neem facial spray ?? Get Neem Capsules use the neem powder on water and put it in a microwave ( like tea) and put the Neem water on a small spray container?? ( Sorry for the long question)

    • says

      yes, neem facial spray is also good but i can suggest neem oil. a drop will work well on the acne prone skin as well but you can try the capsule thing you talked about as well :)

    Hi Swati! I am Himanshu, was going through the thread of people’s queries and your answers to them. Must say….you’re doing a great job. Even after reading the blogs, I couldn’t resist to ask….is it fine to boil the neem leaves and cool it and drink it? If yes, please suggest the right dosage/intake. Look forward.

    I got very good result but when I should stop this treatment and I like to eat neem leaves nw can I continue forever please reply

  95. says

    This medicinal herb/leaves always amazed me though I failed on my attempts to chew neem leaves . I really can’t bear it but I WILL gather my 100% courage to chew it because of what you have said that it can whiten/clean teeth. Anyway, I have been using the boiled water out of neem leaves and undisputedly, it’s really effective.

    how much quantity of fresh neem leaves juice is recommended per day for good skin and blood purification? do we need to take it daily or at intervals will be beneficial? i made fresh juice of about 20-30 small leaves and added water to paste and extracted juice about 100 ml and drank it

    • says

      Hi Sona. This is not a medication prescription or anything of that nature so the dosage really depends on you. You can take as much of it as you want. What you did sounds pretty fine to me. You can do this everyday for 30 days and see if it makes any difference for you or not!

      hi Maitri. you can give it a try for one months and see the results for yourself! I can not assure you anything as every body is different and reacts differently to home remedies. also, it depends on why you are getting pimples.
