Karanja Oil, Pongamia glabra, is pressed from the seeds of the Pongam Tree. Karanja Oil is considered a "cousin" of Neem Oil and offers an array of similar benefits to that of its pungent Neem relative. Karanja Oil is prized for its properties and is often used in pet care for the treatment of fleas, mange, and scabies. The bug repellent properties of Karanja Oil also makes it well suited for agricultural use.
In personal care applications, Karanja Oil can be used to nourish and protect challenging and problem skin conditions. While its properties are similar to Neem Oil, its aroma is quite different. Karanja Oil has a milder, more versatile aroma than Neem Oil that is often described as nutty.
Karanja Oil can be incorporated into a wide range of formulations including body oils, salves, lotions, soaps, hair oils, shampoos, or garden sprays.
