Tamanu oil is beyond miraculous for skin regeneration! This dark green oil absorbs quickly into the skin, and has been used by doctors to heal burn victims. Tamanu oil is also effective for skin ailments such as eczema, acne and acne scars, blisters, diabetes sores, dry and scaly skin, bug bites and stings, stretch marks, athletes foot, age spots, shingles, and more.
I first laid eyes on this natural oil when I was in Maui three years ago. I’ve been using it ever since.
Most recently it has been a healing savior for quickly healing a dog bite that I experienced earlier this month. Crazy I know, yet tamanu oil is doing its usual magic and I am so grateful! (I started applying this oil to the wound as soon as the skin closed.)
I love using tamanu oil as an eye serum!
I used to apply organic tamanu oil all over my face, yet lately I’ve only been using it on problem areas and under my eyes. So I am not over applying this oil, I use a Q-Tip to dip in the oil, wipe off any excess oil on the bottle, and place a dot under my eyes and to any areas on my face that need extra TLC. I then use my ring finger to gently pat the oil into the skin. Because this oil can be very overpriced in most natural grocery stores and not always organic, I always order it online. I also don’t want to waste it, so applying it with a Q-Tip allows me to use it more sparingly. If you are interested in reading more on tamanu oil check this original article I wrote 2010.
There are many extraordinary regenerative natural oils that can be used for all skin types.
One does not have to purchase a ton on skin care products to effectively care for themselves or their skin. It is actually more beneficial to learn what nature has to offer and seek out what works for you. The more that you become aware of, the more conscious of a consumer you will also become.
Purchasing your favorites natural ingredients in bulk, or from companies that sell in bulk, will save you so much money. Some natural oils may cost more than others, yet you are getting a 100% pure and concentrated natural healing product. I buy organic tamanu oil from my favorite seller Mountain Rose Herbs, yet I have also seen tamanu oil sold at Whole Foods.
