    Tamanu Organic Oil - 50ml

    $17.39 (+GST)     $20.00 (incl GST) Prices are in New Zealand Dollars -
    5514304

    Ingredients: SHAKE WELL BEFORE USE Calophyllum Inophyllum Seed Oil * * Denotes Certified Organic

     

    Botanical Name: Calophyllum Inophyllum

     

    Extraction Method: Cold Pressed

     

    Description: The Tamanu tree blooms twice annually with fragrant, white flowers, which later yield clusters of yellow-skinned spherical fruit. It is grows up to three meters tall, sporting cracked, black bark and elliptical, shiny leaves

     

    Color: Dark green viscous oily liquid.

     

    Aromatic Description: Tamanu Certified Organic Oil has a rich, woody-spicy oil scent.

     

    Common Uses: Tamanu Certified Organic Oil is a very popular, all purpose carrier oil. It is used by manufacturers (particularly as a conditioning agent in hair care products), aromatherapists, and massage therapists. It is reputed to have wondrous properties, however all of it's miraculous claims are hinged on anecdotal, not scientific, evidence. There's no harm in using this oil in skin care-like most oils, it is composed of phospholipids and glycolipids, and these are natural constituents of healthy skin and are good water-binding agents. It can be applied neat to the skin or blended with other carrier oils.

     

    Consistency: Solid at room temperature. Product should be heated in a warm water bath in order to liquefy.

    The solid particles are a mix of palmitic acid (MP 62.9C) and Stearic acid (MP 68C) which make up nearly 30% of the oils weight. Heating the oil to 68-70C will melt these components and result in a beautifully smooth oil to add to your emulsion. However, another option is to filter out these components.

     

    Filtering rather than melting is recommended when you want to do the following:

    * Produce a room spray using tamanu oil - the stearic and palmitic acid will always sink to the bottom of this type of product as there is nothing for them to blend with. They aren't performing any function in that type of formula anyway.

    * Cold-process or low-oil content serums.

    * 100% oil/ emollient based serums that are based on low MP oils (most oils have low melting points - below 10C. Those with higher melting points are coconut, palm, palm kernel and some especially designed mineral oils. These high melting point oils give the stearic and palmitic acid something to blend with and help to minimise the splitting effect).

     

    Absorption: Absorbs into skin at average speed, slight oil feeling left on skin.

     

    Shelf Life: Refrigeration after opening is recommended.

     

    Cautions: Persons with nut allergy should not use this oil.

    5 out of 5 stars - I really love this brand of Tamanu Oil. I buy it from the health shop nearby. It's light and absorbs quickly, it has a light nutty smell but not too potent as I have found with other brands. Gave my last bottle to my daughter cause my grandson had an infected insect bite, it cleared it up plus has cleared up a rash on my other daughter's foot. I'm also using it for a couple of skin ailments plus have just started using it for inflamation in my heel and it seems to be working but time will tell. I have just purchased another bottle after giving my last bottle to my daughter. I first tried Tamanu oil on a dear old dog I had which cleared up her infected nails, then I slowly tried it on myself. But I've found this brand to be easier on my sense of smell.
