Tamanu Madagascar Carrier Oil has a rich, soft nutty scent with a slight sweet note.

Tamanu Carrier Oil is cold pressed from the fruit of the Calophyllum inophyllum tree. Although there are several areas where this tree is produced, this particular Tamanu Carrier Oil originates from Madagascar. The fruit (seeds) are hand gathered from the coastal Tamanu Trees, as they are said to yield the highest quality oil. This remarkable, glistening greenish-brown oil is a must have for skin issues. Tamanu is rich and thick and absorbs into the skin luxuriously and slowly. It is best used within a blend with other carriers, because of its viscosity.

Tamanu can help reduce and relieve reddened, irritated, skin prone to blemishes, and offer relief from pesky outdoor bug bites; soothing and repairing as it is applied. Using Tamanu Carrier Oil can help reduce the appearance of scars and marks caused from weight gain or pregnancy. Tamanu is gentle, effective, and promotes restoration and healthy skin growth, which will leave the skin soft and feeling better than new.

To help reduce the appearance of scars, combine Tamanu Carrier Oil with Plant Therapy’s Skin Restore at a 5% dilution and apply to the area daily. Apply Tamanu at 100% to reddened, irritated, or small bites from pesky outdoor insects to help soothe and relieve. A small amount can be used on the face after it is cleaned to moisturize, reduce and relieve blemishes, keeping the face fresh, toned, and even.
Users can expect a shelf life of 2 years with proper storage conditions. It is recommended that cold-pressed carrier oils be kept in a cool dark place to maintain freshness and achieve maximum shelf life. Refrigeration is best. Bring to room temperature before using.

5.0 5  Dark & Luxurious & Healing

I purchased this oil after reading the description that it will help with redness. I have large pores, red undertone and think my skin is inflamed. I have several skin issues because of early sun damage. I\'ve tried so many things. I first ordered Soft Skin blend and it did help my skin quite a bit. The difference was noticeable! However, I was still dealing with some very dry skin or some kind of skin issue on my nose and forehead. (everything else is oily) It has been a week. I apply this oil with either Soft Skin or Frankincense and the results have been amazing! The skin on my nose is not as sensitive and the odd patch of rough skin on my forehead is going away. I tried Hemp Oil from PT but it did not help as much as this oil has! I love the results! I also love the smell of this oil. You can tell from the scent and color that is is minimally processed. The scent is like a nutty licorice. This oil also sinks into my skin better than any other oil I\'ve tried. Most oils just sit on the surface of my skin and don\'t seem to penetrate. This one actually soaks in after a little bit. I only tried the small 2 oz bottle but I\'ll be back for a larger bottle when this runs out. Thanks PT for providing something that works for me!

5.0 5  Smells weird, works great.

So the only negative I can tell so far with this oil is the strange scent. And it\'s not bad, it just smells almost like smoky meat. But a tiny tiny bit goes a long long long way!! I got this to make a post partum stretch mark salve and saw the healing balm has tamanu as well so I will use that instead. I have been using the straight oil on acne scars and I don\'t think I have found anything as healing as this oil. It\'s awesome, I can see a difference after only using it a few times. It solidifies if you keep it in the fridge, so that\'s something to keep in mind if you need to use a good bit of it. I dip the tip of my pinkie finger in the bottle. I can\'t wait to see how it does on my skin post partum, I am going to use it with a bengkung wrap.

5.0 5  Favorite Carrier Oil

Unlike other reviewers, I love this oil\'s warm, nutty fragrance. I use it every night, blended with a good quality body lotion, another carrier oil and a few drops of an essential oil (last night, myrrh). You\'ll be surprised how many essential oils work well with this stronger scented oil.

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
