Leaves are the most useful part of the neem tree. If the fresh leaves are available then it is very good but if not available then use the dried leaves. These leaves are available in every herbal medicine store. If you are using the fresh leaves then make a paste by grinding them thoroughly but if you are using the dried leaf powder then mix it in water. Here are some uses of leaves and methods to use them.
