The Plant Runner - Neem Oil Leaf Shine

by Samantha Hamilton 21 Jun 2023

The Plant Runner's Neem oil is created using neem seed that has been hand blended with a vegetable-based wetting agent.

Neem has hundreds of different uses and is especially popular with indoor plants. We use it as a natural leaf shine to keep the foliage looking lush and dust-free. Wiping down your plant's foliage on a regular basis removes dust that can limit the plant's ability to photosynthesis.

It contains organic sulphur, proteins and various beneficial trace elements and can be used safely around pets and children

Ingredients: 100% natural cold pressed neem oil, plant-based wetting agent

Directions:
Shake well before use.
Spray directly onto foliage; wipe with a soft cloth.

An application can be repeated after 7 days and as necessary thereafter.

Keep in a cool dry place out of direct sunlight.

This is a vegan friendly product

Safety Directions:
Not for human consumption.
Avoid inhaling or ingesting.
Avoid the eyes and wash hands after use

The FAQS
What is the shelf life of this product?
Most pure Neem once mixed has a shelf-life of around 4 days. We add plant-based oils to the blend that extends the shelf-life of the Neem to 18 months, as well as acting as a wetting agent so the nozzle won’t clog up. These oils also extend the potency of the Neem on the plant after spraying. We do not use any synthetic preservatives in the mix.

Is it safe to use around children and pets?
Care should be taken using around people and animals. Avoid the eyes and wash hands after use

Will this help with pest management?
While Neem has been used for decades for pest management, our neem is not registered as an insecticide which means it cannot be marketed as such. 

Why should I shine my foliage?
Wiping the dust off your plant’s foliage is an important part of plant care. Dust can build up on the leaves of indoor plants as there is no wind or rain to clean them. The dust can prevent photosynthesis and your plant will not grow to its full potential.

How often should I wipe the foliage?
We recommend cleaning the leaves once a month.

Won't the oil clog the pores?
Neem is non-comedogenic, which means it does not clog pores like other oils.

What are some other health benefits of using Neem?
Neem also contains a number of beneficial proteins and can act as a natural fertiliser.
