Where Ekoneem Began
Founded by mother and daughter team, Rosalind Grant and Hilary Thomson, the company started their roots in livestock farming in Scotland. Caring for the welfare of their own animals instigated their journey for an alternative natural insect repellent that they could use on their sheep without any side effects.
On a visit to India in 1992, Rosalind discovered Neem Oil - used for thousands of years as a natural, organic pest control. After successful trials on their sheep, they used Neem Oil on all their animals, with a range of common complaints, and were amazed at the results of the Neem Oil.
Soon after their animal trials, they gave Neem Oil to their friends to try and overwhelmed with the feedback, their brand Ekoneem was now born.
Packed with pure Neem oil, the multitude of natural compounds it contains gives extremely effective control of itching, irritations, sore or cracked feet and even hair loss (alopecia).
Not only is Ekoneem an incredible relief for itchy dogs but it also acts as a strong natural repellent to any mite, flea or tick infestation - which can often cause these types of problems. What makes Eckoneem brilliant is that it’s completely safe for external use with no side effects, and can be applied to all sensitive areas, including around the eyes, which is astonishing in such a powerful oil and natural fly repellent.
Wondering what Neem Oil is?
After researching the powers of itch relief solutions for our four-legged friends, our team came across the excellence of Ekoneem and the super powers of Neem Oil.
Neem oil comes from the seeds of the Neem tree, Azadirachta indica, a member of the mahogany tree family. Known in India as the 'Village Pharmacy' because of its remarkable properties which aids the natural healing for both people and animals, Neem Oil has been a medicinal marvel for thousands of years.
Containing high levels of Azadirachtin, Neem Oil can deter biting insects and all those pesky parasites we can come to know and hate. The essential compounds of neem are absorbed by the skin and are spread through the sebaceous glands, having a cumulative effect on repelling insects away for ours and our pet’s skin.
When choosing Neem Oil products, ensure you select the best quality, cold-pressed oil to get the best results for your pet. As Neem Oil is produced directly from India, beware of poor quality, cheaper alternatives that are often diluted and fail to have the wondrous effects of the real deal.
