Tamanu oil originates from the pacific islands and has been used as a medicine by the local natives for centuries. It is easily absorbed by the skin and leaves dry and irritated skin feeling smooth. It is ideal for the face, body and hair, has anti-aging properties which stimulate new cell regeneration softening fine lines and wrinkles, and promotes new hair growth for healthy thicker hair. When used as a hot oil treatment it repairs split ends and provides excellent conditioning.
Tamanu oil is also known to have anti bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that fight and heal acne, reducing redness, scarring and bacterial growth. When applied to the skin on a regular basis it can improve and promote the healing of scarring and improves microcirculation that promotes healing of bruises in a treated area. It is also effective for healing sunburns and insect bites.
Overall Tamanu is a very healing and regenerative oil that has many medicinal properties for the skin as well as having a sweet aroma noted to greatly reduce foul foot odour during the hot months of the year!!
