Let's take a journey to learn more about Organic Tamanu Oil...

Tamanu Oil (Caulophylluminophyllum) is native to the Pacific Basin, where its native indigenous communities have a long ancient history of using Tamanu Oil to soothe and alleviate all sorts of ailments. The Tahitians considered the Tamanu tree a sacred symbol, using all its parts, including its leaves, wood, bark, and resin for ritual, ceremony, and healing.

After colonizers and missionaries discovered the remarkable healing properties of Tamanu Oil in the early 20th century, they brought it back to France to continue studying its medicinal benefits. Today, Tamanu Oil continues to be studied and used in many clinical settings around the world.

So, where does this miracle oil come from?

The Tamanu tree can grow up to 100 feet, with long spreading branches and rough dark bark. The tree blooms all year and produces fruit the size and shape of an apricot. The skin of the fruit is relatively thick, and the flesh is apple-like. The flesh covers the nut, which looks like an almond, and you have to crack it open to reveal the inner seed, where the oil is pressed out.

What's special about the Tamanu nut is that when it's freshly harvested, the inside kernel is dry and odorless. It's important to dry the nut for a few months, during which it browns and starts to ooze a sweet-smelling oil. These sun-cured nuts are then pressed, creating a thick, deep green, and aromatic oil. Although the oil is gooey, it quickly absorbs into your skin without leaving a greasy finish.

What makes Tamanu Oil even more remarkable is that it not only promotes tissue repair and resiliency but it also contains powerful components that can ward off pathogens and improve your skin's immunity. That's why you see it often as a key ingredient in products used to promote clear, blemish-free skin and help battle infections.

In addition, Tamanu Oil can soothe away pain and discomfort, ease swelling, and aches. Since it's been researched thoroughly, it has a long list of medicinal uses and is often considered a go-to ingredient for herbalists and natural healers.

But, our favorite way to use Tamanu Oil is to soften, nourish, and increase the shine and vibrancy of our skin.

"I recently researched the best treatment for dry skin and scalp...I then came across some helpful info on the benefits of Jojoba oil and decided to look for an organic brand. Your oil is truly wonderful. I now use it exclusively for skin and scalp, only adding frankincense essential oil for its calming effects. This combo is exceptional. I'm very glad I found Cliganic."
