Miracle Tree Grows in Jamaica
I remember the first time I heard about the Neem tree about 4 years ago. It seemed too good to be true that so many wonderful benefits could be derived from just one tree.
A friend who had a tree in her backyard told me that this modern-day miracle could treat skin and hair problems, infections and fever. It could also get rid of your garden pests while detoxifying your liver.
It was actually easier to ask what Neem couldn’t do, than to question its long list of beneficial purposes.
Last year, I became re-acquainted with the Neem tree when I noticed a lady pulling bunches of leaves from a tree outside a building.
Curious, I asked her why she was gathering them, and she explained that she used the Neem leaves as a tea. Apparently, she found it helpful in lowering her blood pressure and controlling her diabetes.
Since then, I have been continuously amazed at the abundance of Neem trees that exist in Jamaica. They seem to grow easily and can be found along sidewalks, in apartment complex parking lots and in green areas within the corporate district in Kingston.
I have done a little research on this ‘Miracle Tree’ from India, and believe that we need to capitalise on this blessing that grows right under our noses. Check out this website that showcases many of the wonderful products that can be made from this wondrous tree.
Any enterprising entrepreneurs want to take on the challenge of making Jamaican Neem products?
