Neem juice got by grinding neem leaves with water have amazing skin, hair and health benefits. Fresh neem juice can be consumed internally along with giloy and tulsi to improve immunity. It can mixed into face packs and hair packs to treat skin and hair problems.
What Is Neem Juice?
Neem juice is nothing but the juice got by grinding the leaves of neem tree whose botanical name is Azadirachta indica. All parts of neem including the leaves are very bitter so the juice also tastes very bitter.
Neem Juice Benefits:
Neem juice has antioxidant and anticancer properties, helps reduce inflammation, prevents liver damage, helps reduce high blood sugar levels, has antimicrobial properties (anti viral, anti bacterial and anti fungal) and is wonderful for skin and hair care. I prepare neem face serum, neem hair pack, neem giloy tulsi juice and neem face pack at home and they keep us healthy and glowing both internally and externally.
Where To Buy Neem Juice?
It is best to make neem juice fresh at home for best results but if you don’t have access to fresh neem juice, you can buy neem juice from the markets but please remember that almost all of them contain preservatives.
When buying neem juice, look for a natural juice without sugar and don’t bother looking for organic neem juice as no one uses pesticides on neem tree. If you are not able to make the neem giloy and tulsi juice mentioned below, we get it ready made in the markets too but it contains preservatives.
4 Top Ways To Use Neem Juice For Hair, Skin & Health
1. Neem Juice Face Pack For Fading Scars:
For the neem face pack, take a handful of neem leaves and grind it along with little water and strain to get fresh neem juice. To the neem juice, add in besan, 1/4 teaspoon of turmeric powder and mix to form a smooth paste. To use, take the paste and apply it all over the face and neck, wait for it to dry and then wash it off. This pack helps treat acne, scars and blemishes very effectively.
2. Neem Juice Face Serum For Treating Pimples:
This face serum is one of the best treatments for acne, for making the serum, we need fresh neem leaves, a handful of rice and tea tree essential oil. First we have to make rice water by boiling rice in excess water than we normally do and strain out the excess water. To the strained rice water, add neem leaves, grind and strain.
To the strained neem juice, add tea tree essential oil and mix well. Store this mixture in the fridge and use daily. To use, take little bit of this serum in a piece of cotton and apply it all over the face and neck, wait for it to dry and leave it on overnight. The next day you can wash it off.
3. Neem Giloy Tulsi Juice For Immunity
Collect fresh giloy, tulsi and neem leaves. Now take one part giloy stem(Tinospora cordifolia), 3/4 th part tulsi leaves (Ocimum sanctum) and one part neem leaves in a mixer. Grind it along with little water and strain to get juice. To use, take half tablespoon of this mixture and mix it in a cup of water and drink once a day to improve immunity, prevent liver problems, reduce stress and treat skin problems.
