We have recently sourced and are now stocking Tamanu oil. 
Extracted from the kernels of callopyllum inophyllum, the green sticky liquid has been part of the Polynesian pharmacopeae for centuries. 

It is a remedy with extraordinary vertues with not only emolient and anti-aging properties but also a powerful anti-inflammatory and antibiotic agent.

TAMANU

Tamanu is a gift from nature, able to help relieve pain and inflammation from many disorders.  The oil is cold-pressed from the seeds of calophyllum inophyllum and is green in colour.  Like a typical vegetable oil it is made of fatty acids, mainly.  What makes it different is the high vegetable sterol content which makes it an aromatic treasure with anti-inflammatory and antibiotic properties.  It has a strong nutty, spicy aroma.  It is thick and sticky, very much like pomegranate.  Only a deceptive feeling though as the oil goes in like a treat in just a few minutes and leaves the skin feeling like velvet.  There is no restriction on how much can be used as long as it is not applied before a long exposure in the sun.



In the countries it originates from, tamanu has been used to treat insect bites, heal wounds, reduce inflammation and soothe back pain - sciatica, rheumatism - and many skin disorders of an infectious or parasitic nature such as shingles, eczema, even leprosis… Along with many other vegetable oils tamanu is a remarkable anti-aging.
 
Our Tamanu oil comes from Madagascar and is certified organic
