What is Neem: A Natural Parasite Killer

Never disregard the effectiveness of authentic, organic Neem oil in deterring pests like fleas, ticks, mites, lice, and flies. It can also help in addressing mange. However, verify that the mange isn’t accompanied by a hidden bacterial infection, especially if the mange has persisted for a while.

Why Would I Use Neem for Parasites?

  • If your dog reacts to conventional flea treatments
  • If you don’t like using them and want an alternative that works
  • If your dog or cat (or horse) doesn’t like the Billy No Mates or Filly No Mates
  • If your pet doesn’t generally get fleas, but you’d like to have something natural on hand which will fix a parasite problem

Should I Use Oil or Shampoo?

Neem Oil

For parasite control, use Ekoneem, 100% neem oil (see diagram right.) It’s not mixed with anything else and is good to have a pot about the place (in the fridge) for first aid. Use it on dogs, horses, humans, and cats (because it’s vegetable oil, not an essential oil, it’s safe for cats) for:

  • Insect bites
  • Flea allergic dermatitis
  • Burns
  • Wet eczema
  • Sore, cracked skin, and paws
  • Dry, flaky skin
  • Fungal skin problems

Neem Shampoo

Use one of our neem shampoos for:

  • Clearing a flea, tick, mite, or lice infestation – Skinny Dip Shampoo & Skinny Spray
  • Washing your dog after a fox poo encounter – Neem & Rosemary shampoo and conditioner
  • General washing and conditioning – Neem & Coconut shampoo and conditioner
