I have written a review of the beneficial properties of this oil which you can read here, however, my main focus was on its skin healing and beauty benefits.
Below is an image of what the scratching looks like with this condition and the level of scarring. Note, this is not an image of my arm...but mine looked very similar to this. Now it is smooth and scar free!
You have no idea how much this relief, for the first time in so many years meant to me! I am so thankful and grateful to this wonderful, healing tree for its Oil.
Not only has my itch and stinging stopped, the skin on my arm is now smoother, and the scars from scratching are no longer noticeable!
For me, this is quite simply the best product I have ever tried for relief from nerve pain and for skin healing!
I can't speak too highly of it!
One word of caution- it is not an attractive looking oil. Good Tamanu Oil is a deep, rich green and quite thick. It also has a very earthy fragrance, which I have grown to love.
Below is a link and picture of the Tamanu Oil that I use nightly. I purchased the 125ml bottle and will never stop using it!_
Once again, I am super impressed with the products from The Summit Vanuatu and with excellent reason...This oil works miracles! Well it does for me!
I can only encourage you to try it if you have any skin conditions that do not seem to respond to other moisturisers, or if you need to use dreadfully harming steroid creams...It is less expensive and natural! No chemicals, no animal testing, sustainable and vegan. What's not to like?
