The main use of Neem oil today, however, is in cosmetics such as soaps, creams, hair lotions and oils, as well as an insect repellent.
Neem oil has been supported as an organic or biological pesticide, especially in the organic farming industry. The oil is generally reddish in colour and has a strong odour arising from the active ingredient known as azadirachtin.

Using Neem Oil as a Rub for Flea Control on Dogs
Place a few drops of neem oil on your hands and rub your hands through your pet’s fur. Neem oil is best used this way for dogs, only, not for cats.
For dogs with sensitive skin you can, dilute the neem oil 1:10 in a carrier oil such as almond or jojoba.
