DESCRIPTION

A Melanesian skin protection oil used for centuries throughout the Pacific Islands, Tamanu oil holds an esteemed place in traditional folk medicine practice. The oil has been an ingredient in local remedies throughout regions such as Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and the Philippines, to treat such conditions as inflamed eyes, hemorrhoids, skin ulcers, cuts, boils, wounds, and skin rashes. Fijian natives use Tamanu oil for joint pains, arthritis, bruises, and chapped lips. The oil is used across  the southern Pacific Islands for burns, insect bites and stings, acne scars, psoriasis, and eczema. In Europe, where it is sometimes called Domba oil, Tamanu is a known treatment for  rheumatism, scabies, gout, ringworm, and athlete's foot.

Tamanu oil has also treated severe burns caused by burning water, chemicals and x-rays, as well as infections from wounds, septicemia, conjunctivitis, and urinary tract infections. It is also renowed as being excellent at fading stretch marks and scars, particularly those caused by acne. In the 1920s, Sister Marie-Suzanne, a nun stationed in Fiji, topically applied Tamanu oil to leprosy victims with positive results.

Tamanu oil has renowned skin healing, antineuralgic, antimicrobial, antibiotic, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties, which reduce rashes, swelling, and abrasions.
