Ingredients

Tamanu 100% Certified Organic Unrefined Oil

Product Story

Tamanu oil (also called foraha or doomba oil) is pressed from nuts of the Calophyllum tacamahaca (or ati) tree. The nuts yield 70 - 75% of the greenish-yellow inedible oil. The oil originates in Polynesia, where it continues to play an important cultural role. Commercial exploitation of tamanu oil is predominantly for skin care. [Source: Wikipedia]

Tamanu oil is employed by Polynesian women for promoting healthy, clear, blemish-free skin and could help clear acne and fade acne scars in those who have a dry, chapped facial skin type.

Tamanu oil is widely used in Pacific island folk medicine for healing other ailments beyond its uses in skin care. Fiji natives use Tamanu oil for joint pains caused by arthritis and gout and for relieving nerve pain from sciatica or shingles.

The Tamanu tree is indigenous to tropical Southeast Asia; it is found in Thailand, Vietnam, Myanmar, Malaysia, South India, Sri Lanka, and the Melanesian and Polynesian islands. The Tamanu tree blooms twice annually with fragrant, white flowers, which later yield clusters of yellow-skinned spherical fruit nut, and from this a sticky oil is cold-pressed to make a greenish yellow oil similar to olive oil.

Our supplier of these 100% Certified Organic essential oils is a company absolutely committed to purity. During inhalation of a pure essential oil, you are inhaling the very consciousness of the plant. The intelligence or rather the energetic vibration of the plant unites with the intelligence within each of us. It is through this energetic unification that healing takes place. Apteka Naturel understands that when essential oils are altered by artificial means, the precious heart of those oils are forever changed. For this reason Apteka Naturel will not carry altered essential oils.

Directions

Apply a few drops of Tamanu Oil to the skin with your fingers. Very little Tamanu Oil is needed as it takes just a few drops to cover the affected skin area. Gently rub it into your skin. It penetrates very quickly to the lower skin layers and leaves no oily shine. You may notice its mild, nutty fragrance which will dissipate rapidly.

When used as a cosmetic moisturizer, it is recommended that you first thoroughly cleanse your face, hands or other skin areas, then apply a few drops of Tamanu Oil to your hands and massage the oil into your skin.

For use as a natural nightly moisturizer, wash your face to remove all other substances. Leave your face and hands damp. Put 2 to 3 drops of Tamanu Oil in your hands and rub together to spread the oil. Then rub your hands on your face skin and massage the oil into your skin - being careful not to get the oil in your eyes or mouth.

Tahitian women also apply a few drops of Tamanu Oil to their hair after shampooing. It adds an attractive, natural sheen to the hair.

Review for Tamanu Unrefined 100% Certified Organic Oil - 8 oz.
I was snowboarding on a powder day in the early season. I hit a rock and took a good size chunk out my shin. After it healed, I used Tamanu to help reduce the scarring.

Review for Tamanu Unrefined 100% Certified Organic Oil - 8 oz.
I really really liked this product for massages. I gave it a 2 because I don't believe I will use it on a daily basis. I didn't particularly like it just on my skin or hair because I just don't like feeling oily in general. But it had a very clean feel and nice scent.

Smooth Skin
I am surprisingly very happy with the Tamanu Oil! I have tried two products from Apteka: Argan Oil and Tamanu Oil. I was using them both for my hair and skin. I liked Argan Oil for the ends of my hair a lot, it made it less dry and frizzy, but it's REALLY oily. Because the Argan oil was so oily, I wasn't sure how I would like the Tamanu Oil but I am so glad I tried it! I used it on my arms and elbows after shaving (I shave my arms), and the Tamanu oil dried up really quickly (I didn't even have to add water to it). It made my arms so smooth and lasted longer than my lotion. I started putting it on my legs too now! I still use lotion often, but I like the Tamanu oil before I go to bed for a deeper moisturizer. I haven't tried it on my face without water yet. I get breakouts really easily, so I was freaked out by putting oil on my face, but judging by the way my skin soaks it up on my arms, I think it would work well. It works pretty good when mixed with water, but it says it helps acne, so I might try using it in it's pure form on my face next.

Review of Apteka Tamanu Oil
I love this oil. It is so rich and feels luxuriously moist when applied to the skin. I use it on my legs and feet and not longer have the dry sort of crackled skin that I had with regular moisturizers which seem to work for only a brief time. The only negative is that the oil is green in nature so you have to be very careful to blot of let it soak in before putting on clothes. Best to use after a bath or shower.

Tamanu Oil Review
I used it before bed on my face and entire body. The smell was to harsh for me so I decided to use it on my legs and arms. I still use it on my face while sleeping and... Get this... I like using it when I am poolside. It puts moisture in my skin but not greasy. I do not feel that a little goes a long way. I like the fact that it is unrefined.

What is this magical stuff...
What is the magical stuff in your Apteka Naturel Tamanu Oil? has been a godsend! It not only has topical healing powers when I use it on scraps or cuts, but overall my skin is not as dry as it used to be. I use it primarily on my arms and hands and after about 2 weeks I began to notice that I was no longer getting hangnails, which are usually caused by inflammation and dryness and can be quite painful and annoying. I also play rough with my dogs and they scratch and bite my hands and wrists. After washing with an anti-bacterial soap, I apply some Tamanu Oil and within minutes the scratches calm down and the redness decreases. This stuff is great!

Tamanu Oil review
The Tamanu Oil was a great addition to my nightly skin care routine. I have mild acne which is hard to keep under control at times and acne scars as well. I would apply the oil after cleansing my face and before I went to bed and was pleased with how it moisturized and saw visible results to my scars!

Follow up to earlier review
This is a follow up to my review of July 25th... This oil just keeps surprising me. I used it on a peeling sun burn and it didn't burn like other lotions. It also healed the skin and stopped the peeling over night. I also put it on my face before bed. In the morning my skin feels so soft and it does not clog my pores.

Review for Tamanu Unrefined 100% Certified Organic Oil - 8 oz.
I am absolutely obsessed with this product! I have been using it for about 2 weeks and am beyond pleased with the results! It adds so much shine to my hair,which normally looks dry and brittle. I have also started using it on my skin and have noticed a difference right away. I am going to start using it for stretch marks and scaring so I will update my results in a month or so! I am all around 100% pleased with the product and I know It will be something I will use forever!
