Founded Organizations

In 2013, I founded NEEM RESEARCH, an organization dedicated to promoting the benefits of the versatile and medicinal neem tree which offers better plant, human, animal, and environmental health. I’m dedicated to promoting the benefits of this amazing tree.

In 2012, I was interviewed by an Indian television station at the World Neem Conference in Nagpur, India. The interview focused on my personal experience with psoriasis and how neem helped me.

In 2014, Scott Tips interviewed me on his radio station, TSN Radio Dublin, Ireland. We talked about the amazing neem tree and how harmful chemicals in cosmetics and personal care products can be dangerous.

I met and interviewed ‘The Father of Modern Neem’, Professor Dr. Heinrich Schmutterer, in 2015. He’s a world-renowned entomologist and neem researcher who discovered the benefits and healing power of neem in 1959 while he was on a mission in Sudan. He headed a research team at the University of Giessen in Germany. In 1995, he published his book, THE NEEM TREE, and the second edition in 2002hrough the Neem Foundation in Mumbai, India (www.neemfoundation.org).

In 1994, manufacturers in the Western world had limited knowledge about the neem tree’s versatility and benefits. However, in recent years, there has been a surge in worldwide interest in neem-based products, with large corporations like Costco, Colgate, and Wal Mart offering neem-based cosmetics and personal care items. Today, neem products can be found around the world, and this trend is just getting started. In fact, the United Nations has declared neem as the ‘Tree of the 21st Century’.

As pioneers in the Neem Revolution, I take pride that we at Ferlow Botanicals contributed to this movement.
