Which neem oil should I buy?
Look for 100% pure, cold-pressed neem oil – these usually go by the name “crude” or “raw” neem oil. Cold-pressed is important since Azadirachtin is destroyed by heat, which means that heat-derived oils won’t have a lot of this precious active compound within them.
What is the purpose of neem?

Why is there no neem oil in Canada?
