Tamanu Carrier Oil is cold pressed from the fruit of the Calophyllum inophyllum tree. Although there are several areas where this tree is produced, this particular Tamanu Carrier Oil originates from Madagascar. The fruit (seeds) are hand gathered from the coastal Tamanu Trees, as they are said to yield the highest quality oil. This remarkable, glistening greenish-brown oil is a must have for skin issues. Tamanu is rich and thick and absorbs into the skin luxuriously and slowly. It is best used within a blend with other carriers, because of its viscosity.
Tamanu can help reduce and relieve reddened, irritated, skin prone to blemishes, and offer relief from pesky outdoor bug bites; soothing and repairing as it is applied. Using Tamanu Carrier Oil can help reduce the appearance of scars and marks caused from weight gain or pregnancy. Tamanu is gentle, effective, and promotes restoration and healthy skin growth, which will leave the skin soft and feeling better than new.
To help reduce the appearance of scars, combine Tamanu Carrier Oil with Plant Therapy’s Skin Restore at a 5% dilution and apply to the area daily. Apply Tamanu at 100% to reddened, irritated, or small bites from pesky outdoor insects to help soothe and relieve. A small amount can be used on the face after it is cleaned to moisturize, reduce and relieve blemishes, keeping the face fresh, toned, and even.
