Produce Neem Oil at home and Earn an Extra Income from doing it

Neem tree branch - mwarubaini (from danmarios)


Neem trees survive for a period of 100 – 200 years and grow up to 30 metres high. They start producing fruit after a few years but they are fully productive after 10 years.

In swahili, the Neem tree is known as “mwarubaini” which means 40. This tree is named so because it is known to cure over 40 different diseases.

Neem fruits are food for bats and birds. They eat the sweet flesh and spit the kernels out.
