Used for centuries in the Pacific Islands, this oil gained attention when shown in a study to help normalise scar tissue’s appearance. From the moment you apply Tamanu Oil to the skin, it can be seen that it’s a very intense and concentrated oil. It has a yellow/green colour, feels quite thick until warmed and has a very distinctive herbal scent. In some ways, it may not be the “prettiest” of the oils, but it is certainly one of the most effective.
Tamanu Oil is now becoming famous for its anti-ageing benefits based on promoting new skin and its assistance in repair and rejuvenation. Ideal for those with blemishes, scarring and in need of skin-soothing. It’s best applied in the evening or under a moisturiser.
Tip: To help heal and prevent stretch marks, apply to affected areas with a warming massage.
