Craftiviti’s 100% Pure Tamanu Carrier Oil that is ideal for massage, skincare and soap making.

While this ancient oil was thought to be long forgotten, Tamanu Oil has recently made a comeback in the skincare world. Tamanu Oil is known as the Green Gold for the skin because of its rich skin-healing properties. Tamanu Oil also has another local name. The Polynesians call it the Beauty Leaf Tree. This helps sum up all the benefits of this oil.

Tamanu Oil is derived from the large, blonde nuts of the Ati tree — has been used by natives of South East Asia and the Pacific Islands for centuries as a cure-all for any kind of skin problem. Thousands of years ago, people discovered this funny-looking tree with green fruits that yielded a rich oil and started using this oil as a moisturizer, sun protectant and natural healing substance for their skin and hair.

In Southern India, the oil of the seeds of the plant is used specifically for treating skin diseases. It is also applied topically in cases of rheumatism.

What is Carrier Oil?

Carrier oil is any oil used to dilute essential oil before being applied to the skin. It is a vegetable oil derived from the fatty portion of a plant, that is usually from the seeds, kernels or nuts.

Application & Recipes

Apply to melt & pour soap base, liquid soap base or skincare recipes. Can be applied directly to skin with the choice of essential oils. Dilute 1-2% of essential oil to 30ml carrier oil. Do a patch test on your skin prior to use.

Tamanu Face Serum

Take equal parts of tamanu oil, cold-pressed argan oil, and rosehip seed and mix them. Put in a drop of jasmine and frankincense oil. Jasmine oil has soothing properties that will calm your skin whereas frankincense fastens the healing process. Once the mix is ready, you can store it in a clean, eye drop bottle. Using the dropper, pour a few drops of this mix into your facial mask or moisturizing cream.
