Azadirachta indica

Hails from the tropical regions of India and Asia. A cornerstone in the Indian culture, it's revered for its myriad medicinal properties and has been a focal point in Ayurvedic medicine for over two millennia. It thrives in tropical and subtropical zones, flourishing in areas with poor, dry soil and demanding little to no maintenance once established. A unique characteristic of this species is its oil, derived from the seeds, which has garnered attention for being a safe and effective herbicide. The oil is heralded for its antifungal, antibacterial, and antiviral properties, making it a natural remedy for a slew of common ailments. Additionally, the plant is used commercially, especially in the healthcare and skincare industries, where its oil is a common ingredient in products like soap, toothpaste, and various topical ointments. Photographed in Barranquilla, Colombia where it is used as a street tree and in parks.
