The Tamanu tree blooms twice annually with fragrant, white flowers, which later yield clusters of yellow-skinned spherical fruit.

Aromatic Description: Tamanu Carrier Oil - Virgin (Vietnam) has a slightly green, nutty scent.
Common Uses: Tamanu Virgin Carrier Oil is reputed to have wondrous skin benefiting properties.

This oil revitalizes and improves the texture of skin, giving it a fresh look.
