Okay I'm going to tell you all about this powerful ingredient I use in my Bug Bite Balm, and why I love it so much 🙂 I only use USDA CERTIFIED ORGANIC Neem oil. Its Benefits include:

1. Antiviral – inhibits the growth of viruses

2. Anti-fungal – inhibits the growth of fungi

3. Antibacterial – destroying the growth of bacteria

4. Analgesic – providing pain relief

5. Anti-inflammatory – reduce certain signs of inflammation, swelling, or tenderness

6. Antimicrobial – destroying the growth of microorganisms

7. Age-defying.

8. Repels soft-bodied Insects such as Mosquitoes and Flys

10. Can relieve intense itching due to insect bites, psoriasis, or eczema

11. Contains compounds that promote wound healing

12. Its anti-inflammatory properties help in relieving itching, inflammation, and redness.

Neem oil also possesses antiseptic properties that protect rashes like poison ivy rash from infection. Neem oil derives from the fruits and seeds of the neem tree. These trees grow mainly in the Indian subcontinent. Neem oil has a strong garlic/nutty aroma – unpleasant to some but loved by those who have experienced its healing and protective powers. Some companies deodorize this oil to get rid of the smell, but it is my belief the strength and some benefits are lost in that process. I add therapeutic essential oils to my bug bite balm, that help hide the strong Neem aroma and add benefits to the product. Neem oil contains fatty acids, antioxidants, and antimicrobial compounds, and these can benefit the skin in a range of ways.

Research shows that these compounds may help fight skin infections, promote wound healing, and combat signs of skin aging. Neem leaves have been known as a skin healer and have been used in the form of oil and paste for centuries for skin issues like acne, burns, and itching. Neem can not only cure serious skin woes like eczema and pruritus and relieve itching, rash, and redness caused by them. The anti-inflammatory compounds Nimbin, and quercetin are strong antimicrobial agents that make this therapeutic herb the best ingredient for skin irritation and it is therefore used in many skincare products. Neem oil has traditionally been used as a natural insecticide to repel harmful insects including mosquitoes. By applying neem oil to your skin, mosquitoes will be naturally repelled.

Field studies on the mosquito repellent action of neem oil Abstract from the National Library of Medicine: Repellent action of neem oil was evaluated against different mosquito species. 2% neem oil mixed in coconut oil provided 96-100% protection from anophelines, 85% from Aedes, 37.5% from Armigeres whereas it showed a wide range of efficacy from 61-94% against Culex spp. Therefore, neem oil can be applied as a personal protection measure against mosquito bites.

This product is the REAL DEAL guys! Made with High Quality, Powerful & Potent Natural Ingredients Instant Relief from symptoms like itching, irritation, and inflammation I hope you enjoy this product as much as I do!

Care Instructions


I was looking for a) organic soap that b) didn't dry my hands out and c) didn't smell too perfumy since I have a very low tolerance for smells. This soap fit my very stringent bill! It's got a lovely texture and it leaves my hands feeling soft, not dry. And the scent is delicate and very "natural" (ie not chemical) and therefore I can easily tolerate it. Wonderful soap and I'll be ordering more. And it also arrived very quickly - bonus!
