Frequently Asked Questions

What is Tamanu oil? Where is it from? What are the main chemical constituents of this oil?

Tamanu oil is extracted from the seeds of a tropical evergreen called Tamanu nut tree. It is native to Southeast Asia and Polynesia. Tamanu oil has been used medicinally for several hundred years by many Asian, African, and Southern Pacific Island cultures. It is rich in skin loving fatty acids such as Oleic acid, Linoleic acid, Palmitic acid and Stearic acid.

What are the top skin benefits of Tamanu oil?

Tamanu oil is effective for stretch marks & scars treatment, acne spot treatment and it works as an anti-aging night serum too.

How should I use Tamanu oil? Neat or diluted?

It can be used either neat or diluted for a spot treatment.

To use as a moisturiser for problem skin, we recommend diluting this oil to about 50% with another carrier oil before dabbing onto the troubled skin area. If you choose to use it neat, perform a patch test, start with a few drops and work your way up.

Dilution Guide

Most websites/blogs mention about diluting essential oils before topical application. While this is correct, it is not sufficient!

Use the guide below to get started on your DIY blending journey.

Interpreting the charts

Step 1: As per age group, please take note of the recommended and maximum dilution percentages.

Step 2: Based on the amount of carrier oil, you can find the corresponding number of essential oil drops to be used to achieve the dilution you require e.g., for 1% dilution in 30ml of carrier oil, use 8 drops of same/different essential oils.

Precautions

Always perform a 24 hour period patch test at the recommended dilution levels or lesser, as per the age group to check for any allergic reaction or skin sensitivities.

While the dilution percentages work for most of our essential oils, we strongly recommend that you read the safety precautions listed for each oil before you craft the blend.
