Very nourishing for the skin

Perfect for DIY skin care products. It’s great to mix with other oils like jojoba or cacay oil.

Tamanu Oil

I use Tamanu Oil as a skin moisturiser. I am a farmer and find that this oil is great as a facial moisturiser in all weather conditions.

Excellent!

Bloody love this stuff. I have used Tamanu oil for a few years now and have a few highlights: one; it fixed some scabby parts on my dog’s skin and his hair grew back whiter than ever. Two; hubby had a nasty scratch that was getting infected, I put tamanu oil on it and a plaster, the next day it was so much better, skeptical husband couldn’t believe it! Three; it seems to work well growing and thickening my hair, I get compliments on my hair after using it on my scalp for a while. It does make a nasty mess on the pillow cases though.
