Tamanu Oil - Tamanu Oil is an incredible oil! Thousands of years ago, the natives of Tahiti found a large, strange tree growing near the ocean. They soon found that the dried nuts from this tree, which they name the "ati" tree, contained a special oil that they used to help protect their skin from the hot sun, humidity and sea winds. There is a very small supply of Tamanu oil in the world because of the small growing area. It takes a full 100 kilograms of Tamanu fruit (which is the annual production of one adult tree) to make just 5 kilograms of cold pressed Tamanu oil. Reputed uses by the people of Tahiti are wide and varied - from burns, to insect bites, to stretch marks. This oil is truly multi faceted. Use it in soap up to 5% or as a massage oil - the uses are endless! As with any nut based oil, people with allergies to nuts of any kind should not use Tamanu Oil.

INCI name: Calophyllum Inophyllum

Donna Maria, president of The Indie Beauty Network and author of "Making Aromatherapy Creams & Lotions" enthuses, "Tamanu oil has a luscious smell reminiscent of butter pecan ice cream or Kahlua (depending on who you ask) and is one of my favorite ingredients to use in skincare products. I especially like it in facial creams and massage oils for dry skin."

Exceptional Healing Properties
I think this is one of the most beneficial oils we can use. I love the smell mixed with Leather Fragrance Oil. My cold process soap turned out beautifully and I'm wondering if I could add some to melt and pour??

Tamanu Oil
I love this product. I'm almost out and am waiting for it to come back in stock. I like the smell when used in unscented lotions. I would like to purchase it in a 4 or 8 ounce size.

terrible smell
I tried it in a creme for my husbands eczema. It smells so bad he was not able to use it, so I don't know if it helps or not.

Reply from Bramble Berry
Hi Marcie! Tamanu Oil does have a smell that some people describe as savory, or nutty. If you’d like, you can add a few drops of essential oil or fragrance oil to help mask the smell.

This is a Steal!
If you are price shopping, Bramble Berry is by far the most reasonable. I cannot believe the exorbitant prices other websites are charging. Thank you, Otions, for keeping prices realistic.
