What is Tamanu Oil + How to Use Tamanu Oil

What is Tamanu Oil

Tamanu Oil is magnificently rich all-natural oil that helps heal and protect skin.  It is a multi-purpose skin solvent that supports a variety of skin types and addresses almost any skin condition.  Nutritive dark green Tamanu Oil is found in the hard-pressed dried nuts of the Ati tree, native to the South Pacific.

Tamanu Oil works wonders for skin due to its vast nutritional contents.  First, Tamanu Oil contains an anti-swelling compound known as calophylloide that works to reduce both surface and internal swelling.  Next, Tamanu Oil is bursting with antioxidants like delta-tocotienol, which is in the Vitamin E family.  Antioxidants, including delta-tocotienol, help bolster cells so they are stronger, have self-protecting properties and maintain structure and health for a more youthful look.  Also, Tamanu Oil has plenty of essential fatty acids that are known to increase cellular capacity.

What do all these nutrients mean for your skin?  It means that Tamanu Oil has remarkable healing powers for skin, from helping repair wounded and blemished skin and moisturizing chronic dry skin, to encouraging a more youthful appearance through rapid cell turnover.  All of this happens through a process called cicatrization, when skin regenerates naturally to reveal healthier, more radiant skin.

Tamanu Oil contains natural antimicrobial agents that helps fight infections in cuts, sores, bites, stings, rashes, blisters, acne and other breakouts.  By sanitizing these infected areas, the body is able to accept the nutrients in Tamanu Oil and begin the healing process more efficiently and effectively.  In addition, Tamanu Oil is so hydrating that it absorbs deeply into layers of skin to moisturize and rejuvenate many dry skin conditions and alleviate redness, flakiness and irritation.

As a topical solution for internal pain, Tamanu Oil reaches deeply beneath the surface to address nerve and joint problems.  When swelling causes pain and stiffness from conditions like arthritis and sciatica, Tamanu Oil can help relieve tension and improve mobility by soothing the responsible nerves.
