Tamanu oil is a superb skin treatment. For scars, stretch marks and aging skin. It works!
Tamanu oil comes from the island nation of Madagascar. This rare oil is a thick oil, light green in color, promotes the formation of new skin tissue and has anti-microbial, antibiotic, antiviral activity, anticancer, anti-inflammatory and anitoxidant properties.
Tamanu Oil effectively speeds up the healing process by penetrating deep into the underlying layers of your skin and connective tissues of the skin promoting the growth of new skin tissue. Your skin is the largest organ in your body. It is made up of three different layers: the Epidermis, Dermis, and Hypodermis. Within these three layers are various other layers, all with specific functions. Tamanu reaches them.
Tamanu Oil is great to use after any kind of chemical peel to rejuvenate and heal the skin. Scientists don't fully understand the unique cicatrizing properties of the Oil, as it has an extremely complex portfolio of chemistry. However, scientific studies clearly establish that Tamanu Oil is a significant healing agent, not only because of its ability to produce new skin tissue, BUT ALSO because of its anti-inflammatory, anti-neuralgic, antibiotic and antioxidant properties.
Tamanu has been used traditionally as a local medicine, and is sometimes considered to be the African, Asian, Polynesian, and Pacific Rim panacea. All parts of the plant (bark, leaves, seeds) have been used medicinally as antiseptics, astringents, expectorants, diuretics, and purgatives. The oils of the seed and root have been used to treat wounds and scabies. In Pacific island folk medicine, the oil has been topically applied to treat various ailments such as cuts, scrapes, burns, insect bites and stings, abrasions, acne and acne scars, psoriasis, diabetic sores, anal fissures, sunburn, dry or scalyskin, blisters, eczema, herpes sores, and to reduce foot and body odor. The oil has also been topically applied to the neck area to treat sore throat. The oil is valued for its analgesic and pain-relieving properties and has been used to treat neuralgia, rheumatism, and sciatica.
The oil is used in Chinese traditional medicine to treat rheumatism, skin infections, wounds, leprous nephritis, pain, eye diseases, and inflammation. Indonesians soak the leaf in water; the resulting blue solution is applied to inflamed eyes or taken internally for heatstroke. It is used as an astringent for hemorrhoids in Philippines.
The Manus of Papua New Guinea heat leaves over a fire until they soften, then apply them to skin ulcers, boils, cuts, sores and pimples.
On Dobu Island, leaves are boiled, and the resulting solution is used to wash skin rashes. In the Philippines, the sap is mixed with sulfur to create an ointment for boils, open sores and wounds.
In the 18th century, native Jamaicans used a similar species for wounds and sores. Fiji natives use Tamanu oil for joint pains, arthritis, bruises, oozing wounds, chapped lips and preventing diaper rash. In most south sea islands it is utilized as an analgesic for sciatica, rheumatism and ulcers.
Pacific islanders apply Tamanu oil to scrapes, cuts, burns, insect bites and stings, acne and acne scars, psoriasis, diabetic sores, anal fissures, sunburn, dry or scaly skin, blisters, eczema, diaper rash and herpes sores--and even to reduce foot and body odor!
In Europe, sometimes called Domba oil, it has a 70 to 75 percent success rate in alleviating rheumatism and scabies.
It�s also effective on gout and ringworm. It can be applied to mucous membrane lesions. It heals chapped skin, post-surgical wounds, skin allergies, cracked skin, bed sores, wounds, rashes, abrasions, athlete�s foot, boils, and infected nails.
Tamanu oil has even healed severe burns caused by boiling water, chemicals and X-rays. Its anti-inflammatory properties reduce rashes, sores, swelling and abrasions.
Tamanu oil promotes new tissue formation, accelerating healing and healthy skin growth. Tamanu oil reputedly relieves a sore throat when it is applied to the neck. It�s pain-relieving properties have also been used traditionally to relieve neuralgia, shingles and believe it or not, leprous neuritis!
In the 1920s, Sister Marie-Suzanne, a nun stationed in Fiji, topically applied Tamanu oil to leprosy victims with positive results.
More Powerful than an Antibiotic Tamanu oil possesses significant antimicrobial qualities, as proven in antibacterial and antifungal tests. It contains powerful bactericide and fungicide agents that defeat human and animal pathogens.
Tamanu can be applied directly to skin, undiluted. There are no reports of adverse effects from topical application. Tamanu oil has also compared favorably against antibiotics in alleviating these maladies: Bladder infections Wound infections Septicemia Pneumonias Abscesses Boils Conjunctivitis The cause of diphtheria Infected burns Urinary tract infections The cause of Madura Foot, which causes the foot�s skin to swell and split Jock itch Ringworm Athlete's foot Treatment for scars.
Tamanu oil fades stretch marks with incredible results. It also works miracles on scar tissue, making scars look less unsightly.
BioScience Laboratories conducted a study of Tamanu oil�s ability to improve the appearance of scars. Six subjects with obvious scars aged for one year or more participated in the test. Subjects were not allowed to use moisturizers on their scarred areas for seven days before the test or throughout the nine-week test period. Scars were rated for roughness, length, width and degree of difference from surrounding normal skin. Measurements of darkness and redness were also taken for scarred and surrounding normal skin. Digital photos of scars were taken prior to initial application and at the end of week nine. Tamanu oil was applied to the scarred area twice daily for nine consecutive weeks. There was significant improvement in appearance of scars after six weeks, and improvement continued through week nine. Scar length was reduced by an average 0.28 centimeters, and width was reduced by an average 0.12 centimeters!
In my research I found testimonials of people using on age spots, precancerous spots, acne and wrinkles with incredible results. We recommend applying oil before bed due to its curry leaf like aroma. Irregardless of smell this oil is wonderful for your skin! You will love it!
Massage a few fingerfuls into face in circular motions to work oil into skin. Use nightly. We recommend changing up facial oils every few nights to get maxium benefit from oils.
For first aid use Tamanu Oil should be applied topically directly to the surface area of the affected skin, not ingested. 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.
One of my customers sent me an email saying: I love your Tamanu oil! It has made a difference! I am in my 50�s and had age spots that were starting to appear on the back of my hands due to spending too much time in the sun when I was younger. After using straight Tamanu Oil on the back of my hands, I don�t have one single age spot on either hand! I now use Tamanu Oil all the time on my hands, face and neck.
More research I found In the 1930s French researchers investigated Tamanu Oil and found it effective in the treatment of a number of cases involving serious skin conditions. One such case involved a woman admitted into St. Louis Hospital in Paris. She had with a large gangrenous leg ulcer that would not heal and amputation seemed the only option. However, to the astonishment of the doctors, the leg wound eventually healed after regular dressings of Tamanu Oil were applied.
The Tamanu tree is indigenous to tropical Southeast Asia; it is found in Thailand, Vietnam, Myanmar, Malaysia, South India, Sri Lanka, and the Melanesian and Polynesian islands. 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. The fruit's pulp tastes similar to an apple, within which a large nut is embedded. The nut contains an odorless pale kernel, called punnai in some Pacific areas. This kernel is dried in the sun for two months until it becomes sticky with a dark, thick, rich oil; it must be protected from humidity and rain during drying. This sticky oil is then cold-pressed to make a greenish-yellow oil similar to olive oil. To put this spectacular oil into perspective, it takes 100 kilograms of Tamanu fruit, the amount that one tree produces annually, to yield just 5 kilograms of cold pressed oil! Natives believed the Tamanu tree was a sacred gift of nature and that gods hid in its branches. It was their answer to skin protection from the hot sun, high humidity and ocean winds.
It is suggested that people with allergies to ANY kind of nut should NOT use Tamanu Oil since the oil does come from a nut. It is for external use only.

I would like to add that all natural carrier oils have some type of scent to them when the oil is natural cold pressed and unrefined and that scent can vary from batch to batch and of course oil to oil since it comes from a natural product.
We are in the process of changing our label look so you might get the new label. Still the same wonderful product just a different label. :)
