The Village Pharmacy

The Neem tree has been called "the village pharmacy," because its bark, leaves, sap, fruit, seeds, and twigs have so many diverse uses. This member of the mahogany family has been used medicinally for at least 4,000 years.

However, it has been introduced successfully even in areas where the rainfall is as low as 200 – 250 mm. This tree is a perfect  fit for the Guanacaste Region of Costa RIca. 
The uses of Neem are remarkably diverse. In Indian poets, call Neem Sarva Roga Nivarin translated means The One That Can Cure All Ailments.  
The sap is used for treating fevers, general debilitation, digestive disturbances, and skin diseases, the bark gum for respiratory diseases and other infections;
the leaves for digestive problems, intestinal parasites, and viral infections; the fruit for debilitation, malaria, skin diseases, and intestinal parasites; and the

Mature Neem Tree growing in Guanacaste

In almost all regions where neem grows, it is highly appreciated as a shade tree, very often planted in cities, village gardens and along avenues. Its broad crown and dense foliage provide people and animals alike with an ideal shady place that is generally avoided by irksome insects. In many areas in Africa women choose to conduct their daily chores in the shade of neem trees.
