Dongoyaro (Neem) Benefits
24 Oct


I came across neem tree (Dongoyaro) just by accident during my times of studying and researching and I was dazed by its numerous health benefits.

Neem tree (also known as Dongoyaro) has a wide range of health benefits apart from being used as an anti-malarial.

The leaves, flowers, fruit, oil, twigs and seeds are packed with health benefits.

It’s actually called “THE TREE OF LIFE”. It can be used both internally and externally from helping digestive problem to combating and healing skin problems.


Why Neem (Dongoyaro) Rocks!
1.) Neem (Dongoyaro) is a powerful mosquito/insect repellent. A mixture in the ratio of 1:1 of neem oil with coconut oil can be applied to the skin to fend off mosquitoes. It’s very safe on the skin.

We have a product in our Fedora organic brands called “BUGS BE GONE” that contains neem oil that can be sprayed onto the body and then rubbed in.
2) The oil can also be used to get rid of head lice . And unlike the regular head lice treatments which are chemical laden, neem oil is totally natural and safe. It won’t trigger asthma attacks as some chemical based ones do. You can add it to shampoo or just apply the oil in the hair overnight and then wash off.
3.) Dongoyaro can be used to get off fleas and ticks on dogs and cats.
4.) Dongoyaro oil can be used in spray form to protect your precious garden from pests.
5.) Both the oil and the twigs can be used in dental health. The twigs can be used to brush teeth as chewing sticks . The oil can be used to make toothpaste and mouthwashes.
6.) Neem flower juice can be used to get rid of belly fat and in weight loss. A mixture of the flower with honey and lemon would do the trick.
7.) Neem leaves have been researched and found to contain glycoproteins called NEEM LEAF GLYCOPROTEINS (NLGP). The juice has been found to be a powerful anti-cancer agent when injected around the tumor areas.
8.) Neem leaves and oils can be used as powerful antiparasitic, antifungal, antiviral and antibacterial agents. The powder can be mixed with water or honey or lemon to form a paste which could be applied to warts, cold sores, and herpes.
9.) Because neem has powerful antiviral properties, it helps to remove toxins; hence, reducing the burden on the liver. It can thus be used to treat hepatitis.
10.) Neem (Dongoyaro) helps control blood sugar. It improves the sensitivity of insulin receptors. Good for diabetics.
11.) Neem (Dongoyaro) has anti-inflammatory properties which makes it useful in treating skin problems. I’ve treated clients with the oil and the results were amazing . Also, the powder can be made into a paste (either with water, lemon, honey or even coconut oil) and applied to the skin. We have our amazing fedora Neem facial scrub!!! You can also mix neem oil with coconut oil and apply to arthritic joints.
12.) Neem (Dongoyaro)is rich in antioxidants that fight free radicals . It’s a powerful immune booster.

Tumeric and its health benefits
13 Oct


Turmeric is from the plant Curcuma Longa and its active ingredient is curcumin. This is a phytochemical. It’s one of the primary ingredients in the curry powders we buy. It’s used in butter, Pickles, fruit drinks etc and also used as a dye.


Apart from its use in foods, it’s been discovered to have many health boosting benefits:

  • It has powerful anti-inflammatory properties.
  • It has both antibacterial and antifungal properties.
  • It’s a powerful immune booster.
  • It’s rich in antioxidants that aid the body in fighting cancer , heart failure, cataracts, dementia and cancer.
  • It lowers cholesterol levels and prevents the oxidation of cholesterol hence protecting against plaque formation in arteries.
  • It reduces arthritic pain.
  • It’s good at stopping pre-cancerous changes within DNA.
  • It interferes with enzymes necessary for cancer progression.
  • It prevents toxic compounds from reaching or reacting with body tissues.
  • It protects the liver from toxins.
  • It has been found to reduce the spread of HIV in the laboratory.
  • It’s been used in Ayurvedic practice for body cleansing.


However, it’s not readily absorbed in the body so you need to mix it with ginger or black pepper or oil like coconut milk.

People on warfarin should be careful with their consumption and people with biliary tract obstruction as it stimulates bile secretion and acts as a blood thinner.
Turmeric is a powerful phytochemical you should add to your diet. Why don’t you start today?

Commercial And Conventional Toothpaste: How Safe Are They?

There are a number of ingredients or chemicals found in present day commercial toothpaste that are unsafe for the body.


1.) Triclosan

This is a toxin, chemical ingredient which is a germ killer that also has anti-bacterial activity . It’d also found in pesticides, mouthwashes , anti-bacterial hand washes and gels, soaps and deodorants . It’s found in the urine of people who use toiletries that contain Triclosan . It belongs to a group of chemicals that are suspected to cause cancer in humans (carcinogenic ). The US EPA is currently reviewing its use – 2015 . An October 2015 of pubmed database validates these concerns

What are the dangers of Triclosan?

It’s stored in the fat of the body and it suppresses immune function . Toxic levels can be damaging to the kidneys, liver, and lungs.


2.) Polyethylene Glycol (PEGs)

Is a dispersant and binds water hence making the skin more open or permeable to noxious substances like bromide and chloride which can be allergenic and carcinogenic.



This is used in rat and cockroach poison . It’s a highly toxic chemical. Yes, fluoride is a poison!!! More poisonous than Lead and just a little less poisonous than arsenic. That’s why the FDA mandates that a warning be placed on all fluoride-containing toothpaste. The warning is : “Keep out of the reach of children under 6 years of age” and if more than a pea sized amount is swallowed “Get medical help or contact a Poison ControlCentre right away”.

If fluoride is absorbed into teeth while brushing why won’t it be absorbed by the mucous membranes? Ordinarily fluoride is treated as a toxic waste.

Dr George Meinig states that fluoride actually makes teeth softer. Conventional fluoridated toothpaste contains 1,000ppm of fluoride which damage the gum by destroying enzyme activity.



4.) Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS)
This is a surfactant that causes the foaming in toothpastes, soaps , shampoos and other toiletries . SLS is very toxic to the gums. Can cause inflamed and bleeding gums . It caused recurrence of aphthous ulcers.



5.) Sorbitol

Which is carcinogenic with prolonged use. It’s used as a sweetener.


6.) Aluminnium

Which has been implicated in cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.


I use a herbal toothpaste that doesn’t contain any of these items. For more information, contact me on +2349098260067
