The Neem Tree has taken many thousands of years to learn how to protect itself from insects.
It was discovered this in the West when a locust plague went through the Sudan in the 60’s and destroyed everything in sight but left the Neem trees without any damage whatsoever so scientists then decided to examine the Neem tree to find out why.
Since then much scientific study of Neem has been conducted in many countries and it is now becoming the product of choice with farmers and plant growers mainly due to its effects on insects and non toxic effect on humans and animals.
There have also been many scientific studies done overseas on the medical benefits of Neem. These studies are ongoing with many incredible results.
We listened to many professors and doctors from various parts of the world presenting their advanced medical studies when we attended the World Neem Organisation Conference in India.
Our Neem Leaf and Tree Extracts are now back and available online

Recently Hurricane Dorian devastated the Abaco Islands and left everything completely decimated. These two wonderful people, Daphne and Nick Miaoulis, were amongst those caught up in this and after a week of being told they were missing we found out that they had survived. They had set up Abaco Neem about 24 years ago and planted 8500 trees. They made products and ran tours through their property as well as lodges for visitors. That has all gone, however, 60% of the Neem trees still stand. So, it just goes to show that trees as well as humans can withstand the extremes of nature.
Naturally, we are thrilled that they have come through this and they intend to rebuild their Neem business.
Now here is an interesting character that we met at the World Neem Organisation conference last December – He is Klaus Ferlow from Canada.
He has been a keen buff and advocate of Neem for many years and has written a book on its many aspects. The book includes a valuable guide to herbs, list many beneficial applications of Neem, and explores its politics and history. The endearing story of the Neem tree is told through the eyes of one of its most enthusiastic advocates.
