Tamanu Oil, with its regenerative healing powers is something everyone should consider having in their medicine cabinet. Containing antimicrobial, antibacterial, and anti-fungal qualities, it can be used topically to treat everything from sunburn and ringworm – to acne. Indigenous to Southeast Asia especially the Melanesian Islands of Vanuatu, it is widely used in Polynesia, parts of Africa and Europe. Research done in the early 1900s in France noted its unique ability to treat and cure difficult wounds, gangrene, and even leprosy.

Featured on Dr Oz with heralded “Medicine Hunter” Chris Kilhalm, Tamanu has been steadily gaining credibility for its ability to repair and preserve damaged and aging skin.

Carol Alt, proclaimed “The Most Beautiful Woman in the World” by Playboy Magazine and “The Next Million Dollar Face” by Life Magazine, touts Tamanu as her secret her for a beautiful, healthy complexion.

In addition to healing topical and subcutaneous conditions, Tamanu – known by Fiji islanders as oil dolno, or “no pain,” can relieve discomfort from arthritis, sciatica, shingles, and even rheumatism.

Its main compounds:

  • Calophyllic acid (a fatty acid unique to Tamanu)
  • An anti-inflammatory called calophyllolide
  • And an antibiotic called lactone
  • Along with coumarins, which increase blood flow and capillary permeability, provide anti-HIV, anti-tumor, anti-hypertension, anti-arrhythmia, anti-osteoporosis, antisepsis and pain relief, – can even help prevent asthma; making Tamanu a uniquely powerful and effective healer.

Having been used for centuries for any kind of skin problem, Tamanu is generally considered safe to use topically, but as with any medicinal, you should consult your physician before using. Itching, redness, irritation, or other adverse effects are possible in sensitive individuals.
