Pure tamanu oil – skin healing and renewal the natural way

Here, tamanu oil treatments have been past down through the ages, as a soothing remedies that penetrate deep into the skin to promote healing and renewal.

Over the years, many tamanu oil benefits have come to light – from tamanu oil for acne scars remedies to tamanu oil eczema treatment, and even help to combat toenail fungus.

Harvesting tamanu nut oil

The natural source of tamanu oil is the tamanu tree, from where tamanu nut oil is cold pressed to create pure tamanu oil. No chemicals or additives are used during the time-honoured harvesting of the nut kernels, which are left to naturally oxidise under the sun to make true tamanu oil. Unfortunately the tamanu oil process is not easy and requires time and effort. Extraction of tamanu nut oil takes100 kilograms of nuts to produce just 5 kilograms of pure tamanu oil.

The reward, however, comes in tamanu oil treatments being a natural remedy for so many different skin problems – from cuts, wounds, bites and sunburn, to acne scars with tamanu oil acne treatment, tamanu oil psoriasis eczema care, toenail fungus treatment, and even anti-neuralgic pain relief.

In fact, the use of tamanu oil for both pain relief and skin healing has been the subject of research and tamanu oil reviews, dating back many years. A group of French scientists carried out tamanu oil research as far back as 1918. They discovered that tamanu nut oil contains natural chemical compounds that can aid pain relief and cicatrizing (scar and wounding healing).

It is no wonder then, that pure tamanu oil is prized as both a skin healer and pain relief remedy – not just for cuts and wounds or tamanu oil acne control, but conditions such as arthritis and rheumatism, and even sore throats (by applying true tamanu oil directly to the neck).

Research has also revealed that two key ingredients – callophollide and calophyllic acid – are at the root of tamanu oil’s powerful antibiotic and anti-inflammatory properties. The presence of xanthones in pure tamanu oil – antioxidants that contain natural antibiotic and anti fungal properties  – bring further relief.
