Neem: Frequently Asked Questions

1. How is your Neem Oil different from the one available in garden stores?

The Neem Oil (item # CPNO-02, CPNO-08, CPNO-32 , CPNO-1G) we sell is 100% pure cold-pressed and has no additives . Most neem products that are sold in garden stores have derivatives of neem oil and other inert ingredients unless it mentions 100% Pure Neem Oil.

2. What are different sizes available in pure Neem Oil?

We sell pure Neem oil in 2oz, 8oz, 32oz and 1 Gallon sizes. For bigger quantities, please contact us. We also sell neem oil with fragrance in 2oz size.

3. Do you offer wholesale pricing on your products?

Yes, we offer wholesale pricing on pure Neem oil and most of the neem products. There is a minimum order quantity required though. Please contact us for wholesale pricing.

4. Why does my neem oil look so cloudy and solidified? Can I still use it?

It is normal for pure neem oil to solidify in cool temperatures (kind of like coconut oil). You can easily thaw pure neem oil by keeping the bottle under warm water.

5. Can I thaw neem oil in the microwave?

We do not recommend heating neem oil in the microwave as this may destroy the properties of neem oil.

6. What is the ratio to make the spray for use on plants using pure neem oil?

Recommended ratio for making spray solution: mix 1 teaspoon pure neem oil in a quart of warm water and 1/4 tsp. liquid dishwashing soap (non-antibacterial, mild soap e.g. ivory). Shake it well to mix properly. Quantity of neem oil can be increased proportionately for making spray in larger quantities.

7. What can I use to spray the neem spray on my plants?

You can use a clean garden sprayer. If it is a small quantity then you can even use a small spray bottle. It is recommended that care should be taken not to spray neem oil solution when honey bees and the larvae of beneficials like ladybugs, etc. are present. Neem oil spray like any other oil spray can also burn leaves if sprayed in sun. Best time to spray is very early morning or late evening.

8. How can neem oil be used on plants as a spray?

You can spray the neem solution on the leaves (make sure you get the undersides too), on the whole plant and also in the soil to be absorbed through the roots.

9. How often do I need to spray neem oil on plants?

We recommend spraying once every 7-10 days.

10. Is your neem oil safe to use for skin?

Yes, it can be used on skin. However we do recommend trying it on a small area first.
