Neem is a natural anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral asset of India !
Neem leaves keep skin diseases at bay and so are highly recommended for bathing. They are believed to soothe irritation , reduce inflammation and enhance skin complexion. What more is required ?!!
I am fortunate to have a 15-year old Neem tree just in front of my house. We enjoy the gentle breeze offered by the tree and thanks to my MIL who have grown it for us. I solicit my readers to “go green” and take a step to plant atleast one tree in your lifetime allowing the next generation to feel fresh air passing through their lungs!
Though daily neem bath is advisable to those who have a neem tree in their street, do opt for neem bath when the baby/kid had developed rashes in the skin.
Nilaa enjoys her Neem bath as it adds extra colour to her bath 😉
I enjoy giving her Neem bath as it adds medicinal value to her bath 😉
A win-win situation for both 😉
This Mickey-Mouse bath tub was presented to Nilaa by my SIL Dr.Indhumathi Maharajan and thanks Anni as Nilaa absolutely enjoys her bath in this tub!
I totally enjoyed this lawn shoot at my FIL‘s brother’s villa 🙂
Add neem leaves to a bucket and half fill it with hot water. Leave it for half an hour to 1 hour. Then add plain water and check the temperature to suit your baby. Now, discard the leaves from the water and bath your baby with this worthwhile water.
- You can leave the leaves in a warm water overnight and can use that water in the morning bath.
- If you don’t use heater/geyser to boil the water, you can directly add neem leaves to the water and boil it on stove-top.
