What is Tamanu Oil?

Tamanu oil comes from the tropical tamanu tree, which can be found throughout Asia and Australia. While the sap and the fruit of the tree are poisonous, this oil is a great addition for those looking to give their skin a hydrated and fresh appearance. It is extracted and cold-pressed from the tree's nut kernels.

This carrier oil has a thick consistency and a distinct smell. It is highly nourishing, yet is somehow flying under the radar compared to other carrier oils, such as jojoba oil. However, it offers a litany of benefits favourable for skin appearance, especially during cold or harsh weather that causes dry skin. Nonetheless, Tamanu oil is definitely making its way into the mainstream of the beauty and skincare industry.

Benefits of Tamanu Oil for the Skin

Natural oils are inherently good moisturisers. The Tamanu oil, however, does more work than just moisturising. Like other high-calibre oils, it has the ability to improve the appearance of skin hydration thanks to the many essential fatty acids it contains. More than that, it can smoothen the top layers of scars and could therefore improve the overall skin appearance.

Tamanu oil works especially well when added to lotions, creams, and moisturisers, and is advised for use in the cooler months when the skin is most prone to becoming dry. Simply add and mix a few drops of tamanu oil into your favourite moisturiser, lotion, or cream and massage it into your skin to reap its rewards.

Benefits of Tamanu Oil for the Face

All of tamanu oil’s benefits for the skin apply to the face, too. In addition to giving your skin the appearance of deep hydration and moisture, some perks of tamanu oil for facial skincare include: 

  • Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by giving the skin a nourished look
  • Providing a hydrated appearance to acne scars 
  • Improving the appearance of dry skin

Because of the cosmetic benefits it provides, tamanu oil is ideal for improving the appearance of dry skin, combination skin, and acne prone skin. 

Uses of Tamanu Oil

Tamanu oil can be added to the following products:

  • Lotions
  • Creams
  • Serums
  • Moisturiser
  • Hair Mask
  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner

Warning: Our unique skin reacts differently to new applications. Always perform a patch test before use of Tamanu oil. Additionally, people allergic to nuts should avoid using this oil.

How to Use Tamanu Oil With Other Essential Oils

As a carrier oil, tamanu oil can be used as just that – a carrier for essential oils. Essential oils need dilution prior to use on the skin, which makes carrier oils their best friends. To add extra benefits to your tamanu oil, consider pairing it with an essential oil, such as a zesty lemon or an earthy sage. This will add a lovely additional scent and extra cosmetic benefits to your tamanu oil.

Remember that skin reacts differently to new applications and to always perform a patch test before using tamanu oil. Additionally, people allergic to nuts should avoid using this oil. Never ingest any of these oils.

    Best Tamanu Oil

    Published by Unknown on 12th Feb 2020

    Used this amazing oil throughout my whole pregnancy on my belly every night to avoid stretch marks and it worked wonders! I went through 3 x 100ml bottles, it will definitely stain your clothes green and doesn’t smell the best but for me no stretch marks was totally worth it!

    Ever since I discovered Tamanu Oil on a trip to Vanuatu years ago, I've been using it to treat pimples, ingrown hairs and various bacterial skin infections. It's simply amazing stuff!
