Have you tasted Neem fruit? It is surprisingly sweet (pulp).

Process of Producing Neem Oil

Collect fresh ripe seeds that have fallen from the neem tree and wash them.

Leave them to dry in the sun for a few days and always store them in containers where air can circulate such as baskets and sacks.

Gently pound well-dried sees in a large mortar to split the shells open. Be careful not to crush the kernels.

Pour the mixture high above the basket to blow out the husks just as you do to eliminate husks from rice seeds in a process known as winnowing. The kernels should fall into the basket while the lighter shells should be blown off.

Pick out and remove any rotten kernels from the mortar as these can be poisonous.

Return the kernels to the mortar and pound further to form a brown sticky paste.

Work this paste by hand while adding a little amount of clean boiled water. After working with the paste for a while, the neem oil will slowly begin to ooze out.

Continue working and squeezing the neem paste until no more oil comes out from it. From 1 kilogram of neem seeds, between 100ml – 150ml of oil can be obtained.

The neem paste is an excellent fertilizer or animal feed after no more neem oil can be extracted from it.
