neem me up!

Neem is very dear to our hearts right now. Used for centuries in India, Southeast Asia, Africa, and beyond, we are happily reaping the benefits stateside in this sultry, bug ridden New York summer. No longer does my little man awake in the morning with an unsightly bump on his tiny forhead or chin. And we owe it all to Ark Naturals Neem Protect Spray.

Now, I'm no scientist, but I do know how to read and Google up a storm so I can inform you that scientific studies have determined that neem plants contain compounds that are unpalatable to biting insects. Oh yes. And furthermore, neem oils also have anti-inflammatory and wound healing properties so it's pretty much.... awesome.

Ark Naturals was kind enough to combine it with citronella and other extracts into a convenient lil' spray which I then squirt on my hands and rub all over Gordy's little body when I deem him to be in high risk insect situations. Otherwise, I spritz a little onto his bedding and voila! No bites come morning time!

I don't know much, but I know that we have truly noticed a difference. So, yeah. Basically, I BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF NEEM.

Thank you, nature!
