Spotlight on Neem Oil

Neem oil is a vegetable oil that is pressed from the Neem tree, which is an evergreen prevalent to the Indian subcontinent.

Raw Neem oil is well-known for its strong unpleasant odor, but aside from that it does have many positive attributes. Not only is it known to relieve and soothe dry and irritated skin, but it is also known to be antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal and insecticidal.

Neem oil is great for use on acne, eczema and psoriasis. It isn’t a miracle remedy, but has shown to be very helpful with noted results. In addition, it is high in vitamin E giving it moisturizing qualities.

So how does Luster Canyon use it? We use it in one of our facial bar soaps, adding tea tree essential oil and activated charcoal to further compliment the bar.

To purchase a bar you can find them in our store in Prescott or online in our Etsy Shop.
