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
We advise that the Neem Tree is possessed of many anti’s and amongst these there are ANTI VIRAL compounds.
It possesses an amazing range of phytochemicals (actives) contained within its leaves, bark, flowers, fruit and seeds.
As a traditional medicine it has been used for chicken pox, herpes, shingles, colds, influenza and many other ailments.
In several studies on Neem’s effectiveness as an anti-viral agent shows that it may interact with the surface of cells to prevent infection by the virus thereby inhibiting multiplication of the virus (Rai and Sethi, 1972).
Similar results have been observed in studies of other viral pathogens indicating a unique property or Neem to prevent viral disease (Rao, 1969) (Singh,1981) (Saxena, 1985), published in a book “Neem, the Ultimate Herb”- John Conrick, USA.
Please note that antibiotics are NOT an anti-virus agents.

Awarded to Brian Williams for his contribution to the World Neem Organisation Conference in India December 2018.
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.
UNGCI’s Sustainability Goals and Role of Neem in Sustainable Development of the Globe –
Kamal K Singh, ED, United Nations Global Compact India –
Human life depends on the earth as much as the ocean for our sustenance and livelihood. Plant life provides 80% of our human diet and we rely on agriculture as an important economic resource and means of development.
Forests account for 30% of the earth’s surface providing vital habitats for millions of species and important sources for clean air and water; as well as being crucial for combating climate change. The SDGs aim to conserve and restore the use of terrestrial ecosystems such as forests, wetlands, drylands and mountains by 2020. Halting deforestation is also vital to mitigating the impact of climate change. Urgent action must be taken to reduce the loss of natural habitats and biodiversity which are part of our common heritage.

During my company’s 22 years in the Neem business we have many wonderful stories of what Neem has been able to do in skin treatments for both humans and animals and, God willing, we will continue to manufacture our products to an ever increasing market both in Australia and other countries.
With the world community and the majority of individuals wanting more natural products in their lives a concerted move towards Neem is well overdue.
As you are well aware, there are many highly toxic products being made and sold, especially in Agriculture, which have incredibly long life cycles – some up to 250,000 years – and could be described as helping to turn our planet into a toxic cocktail.
Whereas Neem, which is 100% biodegradable, presents a very strong alternative for insect control and all that is required is for the people of the world to demand that Neem be used to control insects in farming/gardening and when this comes to pass we will truly be able to say that
“NEEM – The Eco-friendly Solution for Sustainable Development”
has become a reality.
