Tamanu (Foraha) Oil is used in my Anti-Aging Serum Butter and my Nail & Cuticle butters and oils. It has endless benefits for the whole body ... Below is an excerpt from Aromahead.
"Tamanu oil, extracted from the fruit of the Calophyllum inophyllum tree, is renowned for its remarkable skin healing properties.
Tamanu oil’s ability to heal damaged skin has been well researched. The oil is notable for reducing scars, stretch marks (fades stretch marks with great results), minor wounds, skin irritations, rashes, bedsores and many other skin concerns.
◾Greatly aids wound healing for severe cuts and burns
◾Acts as an effective germicide to reduce or prevent infection
◾Analgesic effects, useful with St. John’s Wort herbally-infused oil for sciatica
◾Used for shingles and skin ulcers
◾Promotes new tissue formation, accelerating healing and healthy skin growth
◾It can be used undiluted on the skin or blended with other carriers, butters and essential oils. I like to melt it with shea butter, jojoba oil, beeswax and coconut oil for a rich and healing body butter."
