Fresh neem leaves are better for any face pack but if it is not readily available then go for a good brand neem powder. The turmeric used in any face pack is the ‘kasturi’ type that is also known as wild turmeric You can also use the raw turmeric root.

Long time ago when i was five or six years old, I went to my grandma’s on summer vacation. While staying there, i got a boil on my nose. No one took it seriously until there was swelling. My nose was swollen like a clown’s. It was really painful too. Even my cheeks were hurting.
It was a weekend, My grand parent’s took me to the hospital and the pediatrician said that i need a general surgery to prevent further infection.
It hurt like hell when i accidentally touch it. I could literally see stars in front of my eyes. 🙁
My grandma then made a neem face pack with the below ingredients:
Fresh Neem Leaves + Turmeric Root + Tulsi/Basil leaves + Little Tree Plant +Honey
Little Tree Plant (biophytum sensitivum) is similar to Touch-Me-Not (Sensitive Plant) and it looks like the below pic.
The plant is Antibacterial, antioxidant rich, Promotes healing so is anti inflammatory. It also has various other uses when injested and hence is used in ayurvedic concoctions.
She kept the pack until it dried and replaced it with a new layer all throughout the day. We just kept applying and applying the face pack.The next day evening the swelling reduced and the pimple/Boil opened by itself without any picking or squeezing. 🙂
Monday came, We once again went to visit the doctor. He checked again and said that i did not need a surgery as the “Boil/Pimple Whatever” has started to dry out and the swelling subsided. Since then i am a huge fan of this recipe.
It really works that too in nearly two day’s time. 🙂
