Botanical Name: Calophyllum Inophyllum

Extraction Method: Cold Pressed

Processing Type: Unrefined

Description: This variety of Tamanu Oil originates from Madagascar, although it can also 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 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.

Color: Dark green to brown viscous liquid.

Aromatic Description: Tamanu Virgin Madagascar Carrier Oil has a rich, woody-spicy oil scent.

Common Uses: Tamanu Virgin Carrier Oil is reputed to have wondrous skin benefiting properties. Tamanu oil can be used in skin care products as it is composed of phospholipids and glycolipids, which are known to help protect the skin’s moisture barrier and are natural constituents of healthy looking skin. It is a powerful soothing oil for topical use. It can be applied neat to the skin or blended with other carrier oils. This oil revitalizes and improves the texture of skin, giving it a fresh look.

Consistency: Solid at room temperature. Product should be heated in a warm water bath in order to liquefy.

Absorption: Absorbs into skin at average speed, slight oil feeling left on skin.

Shelf Life: Users can expect a shelf life of up to 2 years with proper storage conditions (cool, out of direct sunlight). Refrigeration after opening is recommended. Please refer to the Certificate of Analysis for current Best Before Date.

Cautions: Persons with nut allergy should not use this oil.

Storage: It is recommended that cold-pressed carrier oils be kept in a cool dark place to maintain freshness and achieve maximum shelf life. If refrigerated, bring to room temperature before using.

I boight Tamanu oil, because i had gotten a small bottle of this oil before and I loved it. I have used this oil in a soap and it made a lovely soap, very gentle and moisturizing.....Although soap is not moisturizing only cleansing, nonetheless this soap is very gentle on the skin. I have also made a skin oil with it which is nourishing for my ageing skin. I will definitely buy this again.

I'm very pleased with this oil. I used it neat on a patch of eczema and was shocked by how well it worked. I formulated a cream with it, plus several other carriers that claim to be good for problematic skin. 5 days and the patch has cleared up. It still itches occasionally. When that happens I apply more cream and it takes away the itch immediately. The texture of the affected skin still feels a little rough but it looks the same as the rest. In conclusion, I believe tamanu oil has been very effective for my skin ailment.

I bought this oil because of the great reviews about its healing properties, then I used it when I burned my forehead with my curling iron. I applied it once a day and the burn was gone in no time - and there is no noticeable scar. This stuff is amazing.

The best oil for cystic acne! It cured my daughters skin problem. If she skips using it for a few days her acne will flare up. She only uses it at night after cleansing her face because she says it smells like "maple syrup" lol. Will continue to buy this wonderful oil.

The oil feels amazing in my whipped body butter, but I just can't get over the scent, which smells exactly like curry. A few people told me they don't mind it, but many more said that as much as they like to eat curry, they don't want to slather it on themselves. I'm with them.

This oil is amazing, and I will never be without it again! I started by diluting it fairly heavily with other carrier oils, because I couldn't quite get over the scent (pungently nutty) or the color (greenish brown), but over time I've grown more fond of it and now apply it neat. I use it on my face every morning and night, and it has signifigantly helped clear my "adult acne" breakouts. I've applied it to burns and bites and notice that it heals more quickly and minimizes scarring. I have yet to try it in my cold or hot process soaps, because it's expensive and I don't want to run out of it for direct skin use, but that's my next venture with this product.

This oil is fabulous. I have been putting it in my face serum but more recently just using it straight on chapped skin and it heals extremely quickly.. I like the nutty scent. I will be ordering again.

I am working on a project form my salon to make a universal shampoo and conditioner. Tamanu oil being one of the key ingredients. The nutty aroma works well with lavender! This product hastaken my basic idea and made it more competitive in a market flooded with cure all products. The benefits are too numerous to mention!!!

Oh my God this oil is wonderful, I got a sample from another company and I have to say I am amazed with its healing properties. My son is 15 and he's been a rash since he got home from the hospital and the only thing that would clear his rash was the prescription creams and the last two years have been really bad and got really concerned about the long term effect of prescription drugs. I have been using this oil and along with Tea tree oil and it dried up his skin and now I see new skin that is smooth and I have only been using it on him for one week. This one is definitely going to be a stable in my war chest for eczema. I only wish it was not so pricey because it has become my new best friend, I love it

This oil has amazing healing properties. My husband has suffered from Psoriasis for nearly a year now, and this is the ONLY helpful 'remedy' that has worked, and we've tried a few! We're hoping the next bottle will bring total success :)

Mmmmm the rich scent of this oil can grow on you, as it did with me over time, but was an instant hit with my girlfriend. Very healing, great used pure for the tough stuff. It does smell earthy like straw or hay but also a bit like carmel pecan icecream.

After reading so many reviews about how great Tamanu oil is, I had to give it a try. Whenever My daughter's eczema flares up, it gets bloody red. I tried the Tamanu on the eczema overnight and the next day, the eczema patch was so dry I had to add a bit of hemp oil to moisturize the skin. I forgot about using the oil the following morning because we had to go out of town so when I went to apply the Tamanu On the 2nd morning, I was shock to see the skin completely healed. Not the best smelling oil but works like a charm. Will be buying more!!

This oil definitely does have a strong nutty/earthy odor, so I would normally mix it with other things, especially considering the price. Haven't had a chance yet to use it for the apparent therapeutic benefits, but I do like the way it absorbs into the skin, and I actually find the scent appealing.

I have been using this Tamanu on my face for 2 months steady now. It has not only erased new scars but has begun to fade very old scars. Tamanu has a bit of a strong odor so I'll mix in a drop of Sandalwood before I apply to my skin. Fabulous stuff!

I quite enjoy the nutty scent of this oil. I love to add a few drops to facial serums and oil cleanses. It's a great moisturizer and contributes a subtle, pleasant scent.

This is a wonderful oil for all of my skin creams. However, the smell can be overpowering and tough to get rid of. I'm willing to deal with it though as it feels great on my skin.

This oil is my favorite in addition to the teatree oil for skin problems. I gave a small amount to a poor woman in Guatemala whose baby had bad reactions from insect bites. It was a cureall. I will carry it with me when visiting these poor people whose children suffer alot.

I made eye cream using this oil and it is absolutely amazing! I also love how it glides on the skin and how it blends well with other ingredients. I stayed away with essential oil with this recipe as I want to the oil stand out by itself!I will definitely make a special product line using this oil!
