Tropical Tamanu: Nature's Miracle Oil The sacred oil of Calophyllum Inophyllum,commonly known as the Tamanu or Foraha oil, has been used by indigenous cultures for centuries and garnered interest from scientists as early as 1918 for its unique benefits.
Nature's "Beauty Leaf" Calophyllum Inophyllum's botanical name is comprised of two Greek words: kalos which means "beautiful" and phullon which means "leaf." It has been employed by native peoples in tropical regions in the South Pacific and beyond to enhance beauty and for multiple other uses. Today, aromatherapists favor oil from Madagascar and Tahiti because the oil from these islands is typically purer and more aromatic.
Essential Oils - The Heart and Soul of the Plant Tropical Tamanu delivers the essential oil of Calophyllum Inophyllum in keeping with the tradition of the ancients. The essential oil from the seeds of this tree not only provides the plant with its unique scent, but also protects it from invaders and other threats from its environment.
