Top Benefits


(Suitable for all skin types, particularly for scarred, sensitive, or mature skin | Comedogenic Index: 2)

Fades scars, marks, and blemishes

Tamanu Oil is among the best natural remedies for healing damaged skin. It has excellent skin repair and cellular regeneration properties, which help treat scars, blemishes, acne marks, stretch marks, and pigmentation. It also helps in healing surgery marks. Its unique healing properties are mainly attributed to the presence of the neo-flavonoids and antioxidants. Add Rosehip oil to Tamanu Oil to make a potent anti-scar blend. Add a few drops of Carrot Seed and Helichrysum Essential Oils for added benefits.

Delays aging

Tamanu Oil is packed with potent antioxidants and neo-flavonoids, which scavenge and neutralize harmful free radicals that accelerate aging. The abundance of omega 6 & 9 unsaturated fatty acid keeps the skin well-hydrated, reduces the appearance of wrinkles & fine lines, and restores the youthful glow. It is also known to boost collagen production, thus slowing the aging process.

Treats dark circles and puffiness

Tamanu oil helps to fade dark under-eye circles by increasing cell turnover. Its anti-inflammatory property helps to reduce the puffiness under the eyes. Add Rosehip, Prickly Pear Oil, and a few drops of Geranium Essential Oil to make a potent under-eye blend.

Fights acne

The anti-bacterial property of Tamanu Oil helps control bacterial infections that cause acne outbreaks. It also helps to prevent acne by balancing the skin’s hydration and strengthening the skin barrier. Its anti-inflammatory and skin-repair properties help reduce inflammation and redness caused by acne and gradually fade acne marks.

Brightens dull skin

Tamanu Oil helps to brighten dull skin, even skin tone, and improve its glow. It also reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation.

Hydrates and revitalizes

Tamanu Oil is a very nourishing oil that hydrates the skin, brightens dull skin, revitalizes and regenerates skin, and makes the skin soft and supple. It is rife with linoleic and oleic acids that help lock-in moisture and strengthen the skin barrier function. Rich in stearic and palmitic acids, Tamanu Oils possesses excellent emollient properties that help make the skin soft, supple, and youthful. It is suitable for all skin types, including oily skin. With a comedogenic rating of 2, Tamanu Oil is less likely to clog pores and cause acne outbreaks. You can use Tamanu Oil as is as your Face Oil, or combine it with other potent oils such as Rosehip or Prickly Pear.


(Suitable for all hair types, particularly suited for dry and damaged hair, and dandruff and dry scalp issues)

Boosts scalp health

Tamanu Oil encourages the growth of healthy and strong hair by promoting a healthy scalp. It works to soothe an irritated scalp, prevent dryness, reduce inflammation, and control scalp infections. Powerful cleansing properties of the stearic acid in the oil effectively unclog pores and eliminate dirt, sweat, and excess sebum build-up.

Controls dandruff

The anti-microbial property of Tamanu Oil helps to control scalp infections that may cause dandruff. Its rich fatty acid composition strengthens skin-barrier and prevents dryness, thereby preventing dandruff and flaky scalp conditions. Stearic acid in the oil helps to eliminate excess sebum build-up and dirt from the scalp, promoting a healthier and dandruff-free scalp.


Soothes skin conditions

Tamanu Oil is one of the most potent natural remedies for healing damaged and irritated skin. Its exceptional healing properties are because of its powerful anti-inflammatory property and its ability to stimulate the growth of new skin cells. It is known to soothe a wide range of dermal conditions such as inflammation, redness, itchiness, dryness, rashes, sores, sunburns, and skin irritation.

Protects against sun damage

Studies show that Sc Glucan found in Tamanu Oil protects against UV-induced DNA damage and oxidative stress. A study found that around 85% of the DNA damage induced by UV radiations were inhibited by 1% Calophyllum Oil (or tamanu oil). Further, the application of Tamanu Oil after sun exposure helps to control the damage, accelerate healing, and soothe irritation.

Prevent stretch marks

Tamanu Oil possesses unique skin regeneration properties that help prevent and fade stretch marks.

Treats cracked heels

Using Tamanu Oil regularly can help treat cracked heels. Its potent emollient, hydrating, and skin-repairing properties help heal cracked heels and prevent dry heels. It penetrates deep into the skin and restores its health by facilitating quicker skin regeneration that results in smoother and softer heels.


Heals wounds

Studies have shown that Tamanu Oil has cicatrization properties that aid in quick wound repair by promoting faster new cell growth. The presence of calophyllolide in the oil is known to reduce fibrosis (scarring), thus speeding up wound healing and leading to significantly less scarring. Apply Tamanu Oil on wounds, blisters, scars, and scrapes to prevent scarring.

Relieves pain

Tamanu Oil possesses analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties that help in relieving pain. The oil can be massaged on the affected area to obtain relief from muscle and joint pain and even from sciatica's shooting pain.

Why Aroma Tierra's Oil

Aroma Tierra brings the finest Tamanu Oil extracted from carefully handpicked organically grown Tamanu nuts. We use the best quality Tamanu nuts that nature can offer. Our Tamanu Oil is 100% pure, natural, organic, cold-pressed, and virgin, with no further refining or processing to ensure that all the nutrients remain intact. Our Tamanu Oil is dark green in color and has a rich, walnut-like characteristic nutty aroma.

Aroma Tierra Tamanu Oil is ‘Certified Organic’ by ECOCERT, a globally reputed certification body from France, that has a stringent evaluation process. Our production standards guarantee that everything from the beginning to the end is organically made and that the oil is free from chemicals, preservatives, solvents, and hexane.

Our careful cold-pressed extraction method ensures that the delicate nutrients of Tamanu are not destroyed by heat. Further, we do not deodorize, decolorize, or refine our Tamanu Oil. Refining the oil elongates its shelf life, but comes at a cost of destroying some of its natural nutrients. Similarly, deodorization rids the oil of its nutty aroma, but it compromises the nutritional profile of the oil. Therefore, we emphasize on using the cold-pressed, non-deodorized, and extra-virgin quality to gain the maximum benefits. 

Furthermore, we use specially designed violet-glass bottles to preserve the potency of the oil and elongate its shelf life.

Why Organic?

Today, using the term 'organic' is unregulated in most markets and is often misleading. Products labeled as 'organic' offer no guarantee that they are free from synthetic chemicals or pesticides unless certified by a credible independent body.

Aroma Tierra organic range is 'Certified organic' by ECOCERT, a globally reputed independent certification body from France that follows very stringent organic certification standards. We ensure that everything from beginning to end is organic – farmland is organic for at least 3 years, seeds are organic and non-GMO, farming is done without pesticides and chemical fertilizers, cleaning agents are organic, extraction is organic, and packaging does not contaminate the organic product.

Know More

Calophyllum inophyllum oil, or Tamanu oil, is known as 'Green Gold' for its unparalleled skin-regenerating and healing benefits. It is extracted from the nuts of the evergreen Tamanu trees native to French Polynesia. The Polynesian people soon discovered its potent skin restorative qualities and used the oil to improve their skin health. Polynesian women used Tamanu Oil on infants regularly to prevent rashes and dryness. Tamanu oil is long used in the Pacific Islands and Southeast Asia to treat cuts, burns, eczema, psoriasis, acne, and even foot and body odor.

Extensive scientific research on Tamanu Oil has established its extraordinary healing, skin-repair, and skin-regeneration properties. It is a powerhouse of skin-nourishing nutrients such as neo-flavonoids, antioxidants, omega 6 & 9 fatty acids, stearic acid, and palmitic acid. The oil's unique healing properties are mainly attributed to the presence of the resinous compounds, besides the rich unsaturated fatty acid profile. The resinous part of the oil contains neo-flavonoids which are instrumental for its potent skin-repair and healing properties.

An overwhelmingly versatile oil, Tamanu Oil can address all your skin care needs from maintaining a well-hydrated youthful skin to repairing damaged skin. Tamanu oil is particularly well known for treating scars, blemishes, acne marks, stretch marks, pigmentation, and dark circles. Its anti-inflammatory, and anti-microbial, and skin-regenerating properties help in accelerating the skin’s natural healing process. It is known to soothe several skin conditions such as acne, dry skin, irritated and itchy skin, cracked heels, rashes, and insect bites. Its potent antioxidant property and rich fatty acid composition help in preventing premature aging. Tamanu oil is an excellent addition to the hair-care regime too - it deeply nourishes the scalp, treats dandruff, and conditions dry and dull hair.
