Good to use
Am using this oil after a knee replacement, it has helped considerably to ease inflammation and soften ridged scar tissue, I will keep using it for the next few months.
A very green oil, slightly sharp scent on top of the nutty tamanu fragrance.
This organic oil is quite liquid - even at 18 degrees. This may vary - other variants of tamanu can be quite solid until ~30 degrees.
Rubs well into the skin and is highly beneficial.
I love using this oil for repair. It crystallizes a bit with weather changes, but blends well with other oils.
Love this oil, I use it in my healing balm for the amazing healing properties it has.
