Neem Oil For The Win!

For quite a while now, Momma Daisy has struggled with a variety of ailments. Rusts, mildews, tiny insect bites and so forth. She has managed to survive, but not thrive. Recently, a beloved reader of this blog who is also an excellent gardener (my mom) recommended Neem Oil - Garden Safe Insecticidal Soap. I bought it, used it and voila! Momma Daisy is back and rewarding us all with her transcendent beauty. I left both photos below fairly large and clickable.

A most excellent flower, Momma! Thanks!

A perfect leaf. I love the dark-to-medium green design of it. If you look, in the lower, left-hand corner, you can see one of her older, abused leaves.
Thanks to my mom and Momma Daisy, we've got class and color back in our garden.

Hi there! This post couldn't be written any better! Going through this article reminds me of my previous roommate! He continually kept talking about this. I will forward this post to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Thank you for sharing!

Your roommate couldn't stop talking about Neem oil? You guys must have been a real hit with the ladies. You know it's an insecticidal, agricultural oil, right? Not for topical use, I mean.

Surprisingly, when I did a search for Neem Oil and Skin, I found that there *are* a lot of places selling Neem Oil-based skin lotions.

Still, I think I'll go along with you, and stick to using it on plants. I'm glad to hear it worked so well!

Neem is great for people, pets, plants and soils. The Indians call it The Village Pharmacy.
