December 12 2023 – Magda Radtke
1. JustNeem Products for Psoriasis, Eczema, Rosacea
How to Use: Neem can be very effective in helping soothe symptoms from Psoriasis, Eczema to Rosacea. After cleansing effected areas with a JustNeem Soap, use our Neem Cure Oil to ease the symptoms of dry skin, extreme itching, and inflammation. Neem Cure Oil can be applied directly to skin and face up to 2 times a day. Then use JustNeem lotion applied to effected areas.
Also, soak in a warm bath infused with JustNeem Tub Tea three times per week. Let Neem Tub Tea bag steep in hot bath water for 10 minutes. Do not remove tea bag from bath. Add cool water to lukewarm temperatures to not further irritate skin. Gently squeeze Neem tea bag to release soothing Neem properties. Soak for a minimum of 15 to 20 minutes.
Why: Scientific research confirms that Neem’s chemical structure contains natural anti-inflammatory and natural antihistamine. Nimbidin and nimbin are two anti-inflammatory compounds in Neem Oil that help relieve swelling and redness. Quercetin, a third compound, also well known to support the body’s ability to respond to inflammation, inhibits both the building and releasing of histamine. Natural Vitamin E and fatty acids in Neem Oil help soothe and heal itchy dry patches on the skin.
