Eight Benefits to Tamanu Oil

Feb./March/April Edition Willow and Sage by Stampington

Tamanu oil is derived from the Tamanu tree, which originates in the Polynesian islands, tropical Southeast Asia, south India, and the tropical African Coast. With antioxidants, antibacterial, anti-inch, and healing properties, it has been used for skin care as well as hair care. The smell is slightly sweet and someone nutty, the color is greenish-yellow, and the shelf life is normally two years, depending on how it’s stored. Here are eight ways this oil benefits your overall health.

  • Treats Acne by reducing bacterial growth.
  • Soothes dry skin by moisturizing and adding antioxidants.
  • Smooths wrinkles with fatty acids and antioxidants.
  • Heals wounds, cuts, and abrasions with antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and moisturizing properties.
  • Reduces the appearance of scars and stretch marks thanks to the cell regenerating and renewal characteristics.
  • Treats ingrown hairs with antibacterial property.
  • Fights scalp irregularities and antibacterial and anti-inflammatory agents.
  • Restores hair health and shine by sealing in moisture.


Before using Tamanu oil, test it on a small area of your skin to make sure you’re not allergic or sensitive to it. 

Avoid using Tamanu oil if you have a tree nut allergy.

For deep, infected wounds, please seek immediate care from a healthcare provider.
