I think it is nothing but drop few leaves to the water for sometime.
Two points i would like to add here:
1. Usually people tie the neem leaves in the entrance of the house to indicate that somebody in the house is affected with chicken pox. Also neem leaves are gently touched on the marks of the patient affected with chicken pox.
2. When pregnant ladies go out in the night, they used to keep neem leaves in their hair (like a flower).It is believed that bad things or evils wont affect them.

Neem is known to have medicinal qualities and also is a mosquito repellant. By burning the twigs and dry leaves of the neem tree , in our garden we can hope to get rid of mosquitos and other insects and pests ...Adding a few drops of neem oil to hot water and keeping it in the corner of the room also helps in getting rid of insects like Cockroach ,house flies and mosquitoes
