Tamu is a proprietary blend of three healing oils which have soothing effects on the skin as well as pain relieving properties. Tamu oil contains Tamanu oil, a rare ingredient from the south Pacific used to promote new skin tissue, and accelerate wound healing.
It is traditionally used topically in the treatment of wounds, insect bites, burns, (sunburn, chemical, radiation), acne, psoriasis, diabetic sores, anal fissures, herpes, dry skin, diaper rash. It is also used to treat nerve, joint, and muscle pain, for example it has been used to treat sciatica, shingles, rheumatism and neuritis associated with leprosy. Tamanu oil must be specially processed to insure its therapeutic effect.
Tamanu oil contains lipids, calophyllic acid and a natural anti-inflammatory chemical called calophylloide. Individual constituents have anti inflammatory, anti viral and anti bacterial properties. Tamanu oil absorbs easily onto the skin and many users report that their skin feels smooth and plump without residual oiliness.
