Tamanu Oil

Tamanu Oil


Tamanu Oil is a healing oil with rare properties that benefit the whole body.

It can be used on any part of the body to soothe and protect irritated skin.  It has been used in traditional treatments in Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands, where the Tamanu Tree grows. Tamanu can be used on dry skin and skin with eczema or psoriasis, insect bites and stings, burns and scar tissue, delicate skin with fragile or broken capillaries, and as a spot treatment for acneic skin.

Tamanucontains a number of beneficial ingredients such as fatty acids like gamma linoleic and gamme linolenic acid, It also contains the antibacterial agent lactone, and anti-inflammatories such as callophylllolide and coumarins.

The combination of these ingredients give us an oil with healing and regenerating properties that apply topically to the skin, but it also penetrates all of the layers of the skin spreading its healing activity to sore muscles and ligaments.

There are so many wonderful properties of this oil that I can't list here. For more information on the traditional uses of this oil visit www.shantiaromatherapy.com
Due to Etsy policy changes I can no longer include this information directly in my listings.


This listing is for 1 bottle 1oz with a glass dropper.

Tamanu oil can be used pure or blended with other carrier oils and essential oils. This is a very thick and rich oil, with a slightly nutty aroma. Alway shake well before using to make sure that it is fully mixed.


I use the highest quality essential oils sourced from around the world. I feel that much like wine, essential oils have terroir, and are the most potent therapeutically if they are grown in the part of the world where they have grown for centuries. For this reason the best Frankincense comes from Africa, the best Sandalwood from India... Every batch of essential oils that I sell has been tested by Gas Chromatograph/Mass Spectrometer (GC/MS) to ensure consistent quality.
