Being a branch of the same tree, each and every part of neem tree, like, the leaves, the fruit, the bark etc. constitute of same ingredients but in different varied proportions. Neem oil has the highest concentration of Azadirachtin, hence, making it deadlier for various insects and parasites. Hair lice are also treated with neem oil, not only that, it also leaves the hair a lot more shinier, stronger and softer. The only drawback with neem oil is that it smells awful. Most of the people avoid using it for this reason only. Alternatively neem leaf can be used but generally, its hard to get hold of fresh neem leaves in the dwelling vicinity as compared to neem oil.
