Tamanu oil is considered the most profoundly healing of the carrier oils for skin. This oil can be used directly on the skin or blended with other carrier oils. Although it is thick and rich, once applied it is readily and completely absorbed, leaving no oily residue. If blended it is recommended at a 10% concentration to receive its healing benefits.
Tamanu oil is incredibly regenerative so is also recommended for wound healing, and scar and stretch mark reduction. Tamanu oil supports a healthy inflammatory response and boasts a strongly purifying power and antioxidant properties. Please note: this oil is cold–pressed, unfiltered, and in its natural state. The oil is naturally thick and grainy, which does not affect the therapeutic properties of the oil. Tamanu oil’s ability to heal damaged skin is well researched.
