The Plant Runner Neem oil is created using  neem seed that has been hand blended with a vegetable based wetting agent. Neem has hundreds of different uses and is especially popular with indoor plants. We use it as a natural leaf shine to keep foliage looking lush and dust free. Wiping down your plant's foliage on a regular basis removes dust that can limit the plant's ability to photosynthesise.

It contains organic sulphur, proteins and various beneficial trace elements and can be used safely around pets and children

Most pure Neem once mixed has a shelf-life of around 4 days. We add a plant-based oils to the blend that extends the shelf-life of the Neem to 18 months, as well as acting as a wetting agent so the nozzle won’t clog up. These oils also extend the potency of the Neem on the plant after spraying. We do not use any synthetic preservatives in the mix.

Care should be taken using around people and animals. Avoid the eyes and wash hands after use. While Neem has been used for decades for pest management, our neem is not registered as an insecticide which means it cannot be marketed as such.

Wiping the dust of your plant’s foliage is an important part of plant care. Dust can build up on the leaves of indoor plants as there is no wind or rain to clean them. The dust can prevent photosynthesis and your plant will not grow to its full potential. Recommend cleaning the leaves once a month.

Neem is noncomodegenic, which means it does not clog pores like other oils. Neem also contains a number of beneficial proteins and can act as a natural fertiliser.
