New Chapter Organics® Tropical Tamanu™ -- 1 fl oz

Nature's Miracle Oil. A Proprietary Blend of Organic Tamanu Oil & Organic Olive Oil. Tropical Tamanu™. Nature's Miracle Oil. The sacred oil of Calophyllum Inophyllum commonly known as the Tamanu has been used by indigenous cultures for centuries and garnered interest from scientists as early as 1918 for its unique benefits.  . Nature's "Beauty Leaf". Calophyllum Inophyllum's botanical name is compromised of two Greek words: kalos which means "beautiful" and phullon which means "leaf." It has been employed by native peoples in tropical regions in the South Pacific and beyond to enhance beauty and for multiple other uses.  . Essential Oils - The Heart and Soul of the Plant. Tropical Tamanu delivers the essential oil of Calophyllum Inophyllum in keeping with the tradition of the ancients. The essential oil from the seeds of this tree not only provides the plant with its unique scent but also protects it from invaders and other threats from its environment.

I did forget....
 October 2, 2012
"As I went through and read the other reviews I did see and can also concur that this is half Olive Oil which was a little disheartening. I can tell that the 100% pure Tamanu Oil would have a very very strong smell. But that's what we want the real thing. I would like to try 100% pure Tamanu with no carrier oils so that I can tell what the real unsaturated benefits are."

Interesting Oil
 February 17, 2010
"This oil has a very interesting smell to it. I've been using it on my legs after shaving to soothe razor irritation and it has worked pretty well. I know that Tamanu oil is great for the skin but this product is half olive oil so you're really only receiving half the benefits I guess."

Controls Eximia great
 November 3, 2008
"This stuff really is keeoing my eximia under control. I had a few red, itchy & flake patches on my face. Within hours of applying just a little bit of Tamanu oil on ths spot, the reddness was gone. It was no longer itchy. The next day you couldn't see where the eximia was. I apply once a day after I wash my face and I have not had a breakout since. It has been 1 month so far."

very effective
 December 30, 2007
"I've been using Tamanu oil for a while and I love it, especially because it's a natural plant extract. It has a very strange (not bad) smell, which might turn some people off to it. But if you can get over that, it's really a great product. I use it on bug bites, small cuts, blemishes and scars. It doesn't work with one application but you can see a significant difference after applying it once. Use it 2-3 times and it should do the trick."
