The Healing Benefits of Tamanu Oil

For centuries, the indigenous Melanesians and Polynesians have been aware of the wonderful regenerative and curative properties of Tamanu Oil. The natives regard it as one of nature’s sacred gifts from nature.

Bearing in mind that Tamanu Oil is made from nuts, it is strongly recommended that anyone with an allergy to nuts test it on a small area of the skin first. If a person has a life-threatening allergy to nuts then Tamanu Oil should NOT be applied without first consulting and obtaining the go-ahead from their doctor.

Apart from this precaution, there are no known adverse effects.

The real healing power of this traditional topical oil is its unique ability to promote the formation of new tissue, thereby accelerating wound healing and the growth of healthy skin (anti-aging). The scientific term for this process is "cicatrization".

Your skin is the largest organ in your body. It is made up of 3 different layers - the Epidermis, Dermis, and Hypodermis. Within these 3 layers are various other layers, all with specific functions. Tamanu Oil effectively speeds up the healing process by penetrating deep into the underlying connective tissues of the skin and promoting the growth of new skin tissue.

Scientists don’t fully understand the unique cicatrizing properties of the Oil as it has an extremely complex portfolio of chemistry that is difficult to decipher or explain. However, scientific studies clearly establish that Tamanu Oil is a significant healing agent, not only because of its ability to produce new skin tissue, BUT ALSO because of its anti-inflammatory, anti-neuralgic, antibiotic and antioxidant properties.

People have reported amazing results when using Tamanu Oil for the following conditions:

BioScience Laboratories conducted a study of Tamanu oil’s ability to improve the appearance of scars. Six subjects with obvious scars aged for one year or more participated in the test. Subjects were not allowed to use moisturizers on their scarred areas for seven days before the test or throughout the nine-week test period. Scars were rated for roughness, length, width and degree of difference from surrounding normal skin. Measurements of darkness and redness were also taken for scarred and surrounding normal skin. Digital photos of scars were taken prior to initial application and at the end of week nine.

Tamanu oil was applied to the scarred area twice daily for nine consecutive weeks. There was significant improvement in appearance of scars after six weeks, and improvement continued through week nine. Scar length was reduced by an average 0.28 centimeters, and width was reduced by an average 0.12 centimeters. [Beausoleil].
