Referred to as the “village pharmacy”, neem is revered in traditional healing practices for its wide range of uses. Azadirachta indica is a fast-growing tree native to India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Nepal. Bitter and astringent, neem leaves have been employed in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda for millennia. Neem leaf is typically steeped as neem leaf tea, employed in infusions, extracted, or applied externally.

Long known in Ayurdevic medicine in India, modern research has been confirming the traditional uses of the neem tree. Its many properties and uses have given neem the reputation as Friend and Protector in Indian villages. The neem tree is native to India and has been used in so many ways that it's difficult to count them all. An evergreen tree that is remarkably tolerant of both heat and drought, the neem can grow up to twenty feet in three years. The tree begins bearing fruit at three to five years, and each tree can produce up to 110 pounds of fruit in a year. Its fast growth, quick maturity and high production combined make the neem tree one of the most valuable plants in India.

Neem is also referred to as bead tree, margosa, and nimba. It is a member of the Meliaceae family.
