Neem comes in a clearly marked 3″ x 4″ resealable bag and weighs 1 ounce.
The Neem tree is rich in spiritual qualities, and it is believed to be inhabited by divas, illumined beings. Venerated by Hindus, it is dedicated to the Goddess Mariamma who is believed to preside over all epidemics. A bunch of Neem leaves is hung above the door as a sign of the presence of this goddess in the house. India’s earliest societies used Neem leaves to exorcise spirits.
Tree marriage: Before a girl’s marriage in India, a ceremony may be performed with the Neem tree. The Neem represents the girl and it is married to the banyan tree, which is the symbol of her husband. If she is fated to lose a husband, that fate will then be transferred to the banyan and it will die, not her husband.
