    Hi Crunchy Betty!
    Wow! This was a very interesting read…I am a medical aesthetician starting my own skin care line, and I am blending the Tamanu oil with several others that are also anti-inflammatory and healing for acneic skin. I’ve been using it on my 14 yr old daughter who has tried MANY different topical systems, to no avail. So far, her face and back are looking better and I’m using it on a fresh cut on my décolleté to see if it helps with scarring. Also using it on someone in my office with severe dermatitis, so will keep you posted as to the results after more time has passed. FYI, blending it with lavender helps offset the Tamanu aroma…thanks for all the great info everyone!!!

    Absolutely love love tamanu oil. It fades post acne hyper pigmentation, clears up acne, and moisturizes skin. Its my go to oil. I mix it with tea tree oil and apply at night. My skin is glowing and clear the next day. It smells awful but works like a charm.

    Would you be willing to share your “kitchen sink” facial oil mix? I’ve been experimenting lately based on reading and what I’ve seen in other products and it’s great to get new ideas. Thanks!

    After struggling with acne for 6 years and nothing working the doctor finally prescribed me with Roaccutane (as a very last resort) and I struggled with 18 weeks of awful side effects but it eventually cured my acne (yay!) until…3 years later when I fell pregnant with a little boy (hormones) and the acne came back worse than EVER all over my back, chest, shoulders, face and even stomach! A friend recommended I try Tamanu oil, after only a few days of using it all the acne on my face and chest (the places I used the oil) started to reduce and by 2 weeks later all of the active spots had gone so now I’m working on the scarring. Absolute miracle stuff!! Wish id known about it years ago and saved my body from the awful roaccutane drug! x

      Hello Tara,

      I am in the exact same boat, just got pregnant and my acne is WORSE THAN EVER. I am feeling very defeated and there’s not many options for treating acne while pregnant… How did you use the tamanu oil? Like, did you just rub it on your face or did you use it as a part of a skin regimen?

      Thank you!!

    I am a tamanu freak! I have turned everyone I know onto it and they’re all hooked as well. Been using it for almost 3 years now. I use it mostly for skin injuries and as a facial moisturizer at night but it is seriously a cure for anything skin related. It’s amazing. I use it daily on one thing or another. Also, a friend of mine was suffering from anal fissures (yes sounds grosssss but hey, more people have the problem than you would think. It’s also known as jeeps disease. This oil has been a miracle cure for him and it completely cleared up the problem.

    My son has used it to cure jock itch, I used it just the other day on a horrible burn from splattered hot oil and my burn was seriously gone the next morning. Zero blisters.

    Like you said, the list can go on and on and on. Love it!!!

    Hi,

    Very nice article, much informative. I have acne problems and scarring. Moreover, I have (most likely due to sun exposure) patch marks on my feet in a pattern. Hope I can get rid of these patches with Tamanu oil. Can you please tell me how to use it for acne? I mean how to apply it to acne?

    Thank you.

    Hey all!! A few months ago, I broke out after a week of antibiotics. Recently, I’ve been on the Autoimmune Paleo diet, taking supplements/probiotics, washing my face less and using apple cider vinegar as toner. I just started using MSM cream and using Tamanu oil for spot treatments on the red marks left behind. I was just wondering if anyone had any initial breakouts from using this oil? I’ve had pretty sensitive skin in the past and my skin is just starting to get back on the clear path. I just don’t want to ruin anything by putting this oil on my already oily skin. Thanks! :-)

    • I would say if you are allergic to nuts do not use this product as the oil is derived from a nut. And, the beauty of this oil is that it is non-greasy. It gets absorbed into the skin fairly quickly due to it’s ability to penetrate three layers of skin, quite unique to this oil!

    Where have you found to be the most economical place to buy tamanu oil?

    Have you or anyone experience adverse effects from the use of honey? My experience: I applied only honey to my face to wash it, the next morning when I awaken, My face was red in some areas with tiny bumps, whelps, and it burned as well as itched like crazy. It has left my face with dark areas around my mouth, chin and neck which is dry,cracked, flakey, itchy as well as burns. It looks as if my skin has been burned. I have never had problems with my skin other than a little dryness. Please help!

  11. Looks promising, however, I am worried that tamanu oils are bit expensive? Was wondering if you could recommend a brand and shops where to buy these oils? Thanks. – John
