Tamanu oil is a natural extract that is making quite a buzz in the media recently. The oil is extracted from an native tree of South East Asia and the Pacific and has been used for centuries for curing and aiding skin issues locally. The oil has now made its way to the West and is taking the cosmetics world by storm; it was even featured on the Oprah show recently. So what is this oil really about?

Tamanu oil is extracted from the nuts of the Ati tree found in most of South East Asia and the Pacific islands. The tree and its leaves have been used by the local population for centuries, but the extraction and use of oil originates from the tropical paradise island of Tahiti. The nun Sister Marie Suzanna discovered the benefits of the oil as early as 1911, when she used it to treat leprosy at the small island of Makongai.

Following the discovery of Tamanu oil, there have been several studies conducted by the medical community, but the oil was still scarce and little known to Americans until just a few years ago. Today, the oil is used to treat almost all skin conditions, from rashes and enzema to acne and dry skin. But even more amazing is that Tamanu oil is a powerful natural antibiotic and can be used on cuts and sores to prevent infection.

The people of Papau New Guinea use the oil to treat boils, cuts and pimples. Since Tamanu oil works as a powerful natural antibiotic, it can be used to heal and disinfect any cuts, even working as a fungicide.

Tamanu oil's greatest selling point, is that it can be used as an all purpose skin treatment. It can help alleviate most skin conditions and can be used to prevent them, but the oil also works simply as a great supplement to moisturize and repair your skin. The oil aids in regenerating skin tissue, thus keeping the skin looking and feeling smooth as silk. If you have dry or cracked skin, Tamanu oil, may be just the thing you need.

As if all this wasn't enough, the oil is actually very affordable, certainly a lot cheaper than most cosmetics creams which promise a lot, but have never been proven scientifically to work.
