Neem, should only be used for children in small quantities. You can make a tea with 8oz warm almond milk and 1/8tsp neem. Then give one tbsp to the child. since neem is a strong herb, it may be better to schedule a consultation with with a qualified herbalist or practitioner to suggest the right amount. Thanks for asking! Best, -John
Can neem be combined with other herbs to offset its Vata-aggravating qualities? Which are those herbs?
It can be combined with coconut oil, almond milk, or other nourishing ingredients. It can be combined with shatavari or other tonic herbs.
couldn't get past the repulsive taste.. almond milk helped a little but wow.. I take or have taken and adjusted to a lot of "healthy vitamin or mineral tastes" but that was a really tough one.
Perfect any time of the day. I start and end my day with it, and feel lighter and more myself. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to feel better but not through drastic measures. I will definitely be re-ordering in the future.
Try it with almond milk and maple syrup. See if it helps the bitter taste!

I take neem with honey and turmeric. Mix the 3 together make into a ball or scoope it first think in the morning after drinking my warm water.. fantastic way to start the day and to boost the immune system. parasites bacteria fungus and viruses love sweet blood, so if you keep it a bit bitter they look for another place to go ?
April put a giggle on my face, i know some of the stuff i use is sooooo nasty! that i dont stick with it, but its not going to work if you dont run the race to the finish~!
