The Tamanu Tree is indigenous to the tropical islands of Vanuatu (formerly the New Hebrides). It also grows in countries such as Guam, Hawaii, Thailand, Malaysia, and even Vietnam. However, care needs to be taken here as the quality of the oil can often leave much to be desired. It is very much“you get what you pay for”.
The tree itself flowers bi-annually with fragrant, white blooms that produce clusters of round fruit that look like large nuts. Inside each of these fruits is an actual nut kernel and it is from these kernels that Tamanu Oil is extracted.
However, this nut kernel must be allowed to cure over a 6-8 week period until it becomes sticky with a dark, thick, rich oil which is then cold-pressed out of the nut kernel.
The real healing power of this traditional topical oil is its unique ability to stimulate the growth of healthy new skin tissue. This process is referred to scientifically as "cicatrization" and scientific studies clearly establish that Tamanu Oil is a significant healing agent.
This natural skin care product is the perfect product and one that everybody should have in their bathroom cabinet. Yes, it is expensive but not when you consider that it takes 4 mature trees to produce enough nuts to yield just 20 liters of oil.
Locally all the parts of the tree, leaves, bark, roots, etc. used medicinally in the folk medicine. Tamanu possesses the unique ability to form new tissue, (cicatrization) to grow healthy skin and wound healing works.
Tamanu Oil not only gives your skin and hair a glossy effect, but the oil also makes your skin healthy again. 1 Drop Tamanu Oil is sufficient for daily use.
There is a very small stock Tamanu Oil™ in the world because it can be obtained only in such a small area. No less than 100 kilograms (the full harvest of one tree per year) Tamanu fruit needed to make just 5-kilograms of Tamanu oil found nuts.
Tamanu Oil is the most effective, natural skin healing oil in the world for external use. Tamanu Oil is produced from fruits (nuts) of Tamanu trees.
The oil is 100% natural, chemical-free and 0% artificial additives.

Tamanu Oil does NOT make your skin oily.
It actually makes your skin a bit drier and is effective on scarring and small wounds.
Pure Tamanu Oil™ contains polyphenols, these are anti-inflammatory and have an anti-carcinogenic effect.

Pure undiluted Tamanu Oil is originally manufactured in the Pacific and comes from Tamanu trees that grow in warm coastal areas in their wild state close to the seashore.

Apart from its ability to promote and speed up the healing process, this extraordinary, healing agent also possesses antibiotic, anti-inflammatory, antineuralgic, antioxidant and antimicrobial properties. Tamanu Oil is not to be ingested but should be applied topically (directly onto the skin).
Initially, it may be necessary to apply the oil 3 or 4 times a day and then drop it back as the problem begins to heal. Once applied, massage in. The oil will absorb readily into the skin, without leaving any oily residue.
ROUTINE: Pure Tamanu Oil is both antibacterial and antifungal. So, if you are applying Tamanu Oil as a "spot treatment" and you are away from home (at work for example) just use our Tamanu Oil 15ml Roll On (see our Tamanu Oil Products range) directly onto the skin by simply rolling it on. However, when at home, always wash your hands and the affected area with a natural, unscented soap. Wash off and pat dry. Now apply 3 or 4 drops of Tamanu Oil by gently rubbing it onto the skin. If you are wanting to treat around the eye area then we recommend that you use the Volcanic Earth Eye Cream With Tamanu Oil (see our Facial Care range) rather than straight Tamanu Oil.
SHELF LIFE: Pure 100% organic Tamanu Oil has a shelf life of at least 2 years and as high as 5 years. It prefers to be stored at room temperature or even a bit hotter but avoids very high temperatures as this may reduce the shelf life of the oil. 100% Tamanu Oil should have a dark green color which may vary slightly depending on the variety. However, be wary of yellowish-colored oil as this usually means it has been tampered with either through mixing with other oils or due to some type of refining process. Tamanu Oil has a tendency tends to separate if temperatures get too cold. This is the fatty acid content Should this occur we suggest you give it a good shake and then place it in the sun or in some hot, simmering water. You could also try putting it in the microwave but just remember that it is an oil!
Tamanu Oil DOES NOT need to be diluted with Olive Oil or any other oil. Don’t be fooled by companies who sell you Tamanu Oil (at Tamanu Oil prices) but where it’s really 50% Tamanu Oil and 50% Olive Oil!
Pure or light olive oil is likely to be chemically processed whereas Tamanu Oil is “naturally derived”, so why change contaminating it with some inferior oil?
If you are paying for 100% Tamanu Oil, make sure that is what you are actually getting. Any supplier who puts “profits” before the “benefits to the customer” is a supplier you don’t need.
