More about Alpha Tamanu Nut oil - Calophyllum inophyllum

Alpha Tamanu oil comes from the island nation of Madagascar.

The Tamanu tree grows on all tropical islands. The oil is produced on Samoa, Tahiti, Fiji, and many more locations.

Tamanu oil comes from the nuts that grow on trees, which are gathered by hand. The nut has a thin layer of flesh, which tastes like apple. The oil comes from the nut-size kernels, which are crushed and sundried for three to four weeks to mature and then they are pressed by hand – no chemicals are applied.

The surprising natural properties of this oil taken from the Calophyllum Inophyllum, has attracted the attention of botanists, researchers and doctors.

In 1938 Doctor Jenson, a reputable Parisian biologist, began experimenting with Tamanu oil. Its numerous therapeutic properties, and especially its wound healing virtues impressed him. It was Professor Lederer who, in 1953, succeeded in isolating two essential chemical components of the oil of Calophyllum Inophyllum (Oil of Tamanu). He found a totally new fatty acid, Calophyllic acid, which may be the component responsible for regeneration of new skin tissue, and a lactone endowed with antibiotic properties to be at the origin of its amazing healing power. Also discovered were anti-inflamatory agents such as Calophyllolide and Courmarins, as well as different types of Lipids (fats).

How to apply Alpha TAMANU Nut OIL in the Treatment of Psoriasis.

In order to get rid of Psoriasis or at least substantially reduce its effects, simply apply 100% pure Alpha Tamanu Nut Oil directly onto the affected areas morning and night using a soft cloth. If your skin begins to dry out too much, hold off on the Tamanu Oil for a few days and apply some Tamanu Butter instead (as the addition of pure DME Virgin Coconut Oil will provide that extra moisturizing quality). When you're ready, you can just resume the application of pure Alpha Tamanu Nut Oil.

As with any topical application, please be sure to test the products on a small area of your skin first, particularly if you happen to be allergic to nuts or have a known allergy of any kind.
