OUR WORLD TUESDAY

NEEM HAS MEDICINAL PROPERTIES

THE NEEM STANDS TALL




This Neem tree is growing outside the boundary wall of our house. I captured it from our front  lawn. Though there is a sporadic shedding of leaves by many deciduous  trees, our Neem refuses to adhere to the natural norm. Its leaves  still look green and bright in the early morning sun light. It only shows signs of change in extreme winter. It is a hardy tree. Its leaves and fruit are used extensively in Ayurveda. Its leaves and bark have powerful germicidal properties. It also cleanses the air by absorbing  the harmful elements and other pollutants in the air.

Friends,welcome here!

    I always admire trees... occasionally indulging in 'if only they could talk'! This one is like a sentinel for your yard! YAM xx

    1. Thanks Jeevan, i forgot to mention the Neem stick for cleaning the teeth. Even now in villages people vouch for its efficacy in treating skin ailments. Boil neem leaves in water. Sieve. apply it on your scalp with your finger tips. Shampoo hair after an hour. Your dandruff will vanish after few such efforts!

  5. Ah, so that's what a neem tree looks like. I have a jar of neem powder in my cupboard. Still trying to figure how to use it. It's so bitter.
