Description - This variety of Tamanu Oil originates in Madagascar although Tamanu can be found in South East Asia. The fruit (seeds) are hand gathered from the coastal Tamanu trees, as they are said to yield the highest quality oil. It is grows up to three meters tall, sporting cracked, black bark and elliptical, shiny leaves. The Tamanu tree blooms twice annually with fragrant, white flowers, which later yield clusters of yellow-skinned spherical fruit.
Common Uses - Tamanu Carrier Oil is reputed to have wondrous wound-healing properties, as well as being a cure-all for almost every skin ailment you can think of, from acne to eczema to psoriasis, but all of the miraculous claims are hinged on anecdotal, not scientific, evidence. There’s no harm in using this oil in skin care—like most oils, it is composed of phospholipids and glycolipids, and these are natural constituents of healthy skin and are good water-binding agents. It is a powerful healer for burns, cuts, eczema, burns, rashes and insect bites. It can be applied neat to the skin or blended with other carrier oils.
Cautions: Persons with nut allergy should not use this oil.

I have read very interesting things about the benefits of Tamanu oil and am giving it a shot; applying it topically for several conditions and hope to have great results. In just the very short time I've had it, I'm finding it to be a great moisturizer when mixed 50/50 with cold pressed organic coconut oil. I also am mixing it with a mild shampoo to treat a scalp problem - we'll see how this works. The aroma is very interesting. Quality is very good.

This particular oil is very thick, brownish green and smells like nuts. It is very rich and makes your skin feel AMAZING. I happen to mix mine with rose hip oil and use them both on my face. I have baby soft skin now.
