This little-known oil is derived from the Tamanu nut and is full of essential fatty acids making it an essential ingredient in products used to soothe and hydrate skin. Tamanu Oil is able to penetrate the deeper layers of the epidermis, allowing it to fight bacteria as well as microbes and other nasties that may be lurking below. Naturally antiseptic, anti-microbial, and anti-bacterial, it helps to heal wounds quickly and consequently is an excellent treatment for minor skin issues like scrapes, rashes and insect bites. Tamanu Oil has also been used to effectively treat skin and nerve problems by utilising its anti-inflammatory & analgesic properties. These range from common problems like eczema and psoriasis, to more serious issues like rheumatism, shingles, sciatica, neuralgia & neuritis.
