    Foraha (not an essential oil, this is a carrier oil) a/k/a tamanu, kamanu and Alexandrian laurel, Madagascar, Wildcrafted. Botanical name: Calophyllum inophyllum. Sold by weight.

    This beautiful cold pressed green, slightly waxy oil is rich and thick, with a delicate nutty, honey like aroma. Foraha is said to stimulate cell regeneration and is said to be good for fragile or broken capillaries.

    Foraha is a traditional medicine in the South Pacific where it is used for its analgesic, anti-inflammatory and cicatrizant properties. Foraha is known to have been used to treat leprosy. Users say the oil helps wounds to heal and is soothing for eczema and skin irritations such as burns, rashes and insect bites. It is used as an aid for relieving pain, healing wounds, herpes lesions and post-surgical scars.

    A combination of foraha and Ravensara aromatica essential oil has been used successfully as a treatment for shingles. This oil is highly recommended as a facial oil, either alone or with essential oils added. Shelf Life: 6 months to 1 year when properly stored. Since this is a slightly viscous oil, it should always be stirred well before using. This is a filtered oil.

    Effective face and healing oil
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    This Tamanu oil is a favorite in my face oil blend, greatly improving the appearance of my complexion and never clogging my pores. It has also proven to be the perfect FO for the varicose veins on my face and based on the suggestion in the product description tab, I used it on my husband's shingles rash as well as for the pain afterward from post herpetic neuralgia, bringing him faster healing and much-needed relief. Just a note: be sure to shake well before each use as it has a harmless residue that settles at the bottom of the container.

    I bought this product a couple of months ago to try it and I have incorporated it into my skin regimen twice a day. Blemishes have disappeared, friends comment on how "bright" my complexion. This is indeed a miraculous product, so much so that I have ordered a couple of bottles to give as gifts.
    miracle indeed

    As a previous reviewer stated, this IS a miracle in a bottle! I am so sorry I only ordered a small quantity because I am in love with this carrier oil. Its gorgeous colour along with the amazing feel of the raw product won me over immediately. But once you incorporate this into your face skin care regimen, you are going to wonder how you got a long without it. It is, for sure, the "secret" ingredient to beautiful skin.

    I saw this oil on another web but it was too expensive for me to buy, but the reviews that previous customers had written drew me to it. My son has had a rash during the summer almost from the day he came home from the hospital, 15 yrs later, I am still to get rid of it. I have tried everything over the years but they only cleared his skin for about a month and it would come back. And in the past three years has become worse and he was diagnosed by his pediatrician,with eczema but the cream he was given cost so much money even after insurance, and the worst part was he could not use it once the rash clears. I saw it at CG and bought a 2 oz sample to try and I'll never try anything else again, because it works like a charm his rash dried up almost immediately. I love this oil even the smell just bought another one and can't wait to get as it'll become a stable in my war chest thank you CG, you've a customer for life.

    DEFINITELY shake this oil very well before using. It has a type of sediment that settles to the bottom of the bottle and you want to make sure you get all that healing goodness throughout the entire oil! After re-reading the site info on Foraha/Tamanu oil I realized that I really should make a mix of the Foraha with the Horsetail Butter that I also have. I was using the HB on my spider veins but saw that Foraha is also good for delicate and broken capillaries so off I go to mix the two and experiment on myself. Foraha does have an odor but I wouldn't call it unpleasant. It reminds me of a peppery, spicy, curry-ish sort of smell---I like it. I can see not wanting to add it in great quantities to any of your daytime oils as it would interfere with any scents you might wear but at night its benefits are too good to pass up. Just one more thing to add: I have a chronic inner ear infection that can get quite painful and lately it acted up to the point of real pain in my ear and jaw. I mixed a little Foraha with Tea Tree oil and Lavender and put the drops way into my ear with a glass dropper and then held my ear lobe up and out until the oil passed into the inner parts of my ear. Lay on my side for about an hour (took a nap actually) and did this 2-3 times a day for two days..infection not bothering me now!!! I may have found the alternative to those darn antibiotics they keep trying to put me on.

    I have purchased Tamanu Oil from CG twice and both times the quality surpassed Tamanu I had tried elsewhere. The price is the most reasonable I have yet to see. This is a great opportunity, and I thank CG for doing so. I will only buy it from CG.

    I liked this oil so much, I came back and purchased a larger, second bottle the next time I ordered. I bought it for its properties of analgesic, anti-inflammatory,cicatrizant (warming to the skin), healing for eczema and psoriasis. It is very thick, but pourable, smells nutty-green-like to me. I like it all by itself, and blended with other EOs. I have used it on my face, but found I can not use it near my eyes. I find that when I use it on my hands it is a little greasy at first, but then like magic, after 5 minutes or so, it absorbs and dries down to a velvety matte finish on my skin. Great for my extremely dry cuticles and hands. A little pricy, but soooo worth it! Camden-Grey has the best price on the web
    Surprised how quickly it relieved my irritated skin!

    Two months ago I developed itchy hives on my neck from an allergic reaction. I tried so many creams & lotions with no or very little results(even got put on steroids). I then read about Foraha (tamanu) and in despiration purchased some, hoping it might give me some relief. Well, was I surprised when I noticed a difference almost immediately-no kidding! My neck had been bright red all day and shortly after applying the Foraha my husband looked at me and said, "your neck looks like its getting much better." This is day two and my skin continues to heal and feels much better. Thank you for much for such a wonderful product. I would recommend this to anyone with irritating skin problems.
    This is one of my

    Foraha has become a fast favorite of mine. While the green color was a turn off at first, I found that it worked well with other oils and the benefits could be felt in creams at even a small amount. The combination of Foraha and Ravensara really does work great on many skin issues too.

Here we explain where to locate CofA and SDS for a product, how we dispense and package our products, how products should be stored, basic terminology and the wait time for bulk products to ship from our warehouse. FYI: We're closed on Fridays.

    Certificate of Analysis (CofA) and Safety Data Sheet (SDS). We publish on our website those documents for most of our products, some products don't provide either because the product doesn't require it. In this same section where you're at now, look to the tab to the left titled Documents, click on it and that's where you'll find either document for the product you seek. If you do not find the document you require, please email us at so we can research further.

    BULK ITEMS: When a customer adds a bulk item to the cart, the customer’s immediately shown on the screen how many number of days should be allowed for the bulk product to arrive at our warehouse. If the bulk item happens to be in stock, we’ll ship sooner than the customer would expect.

    EO = essential oil

    FO = fragrance oil



    Essential oils: in 1/32 oz. to 1/4 oz...amber glass vials with orifice reducers. ½ oz. to 2 amber glass bottles with white caps and Eurodroppers...3 to 4 oz. in amber glass bottles with black caps and without orifice reducers...7 oz. in aluminum bottles...15 oz. in amber glass bottles with black caps...10 & 25 lbs. in HDPE plastic containers with wide mouths although, occasionally, 25 lbs. may be dispensed in factory-issued metal containers with pouring spouts.

    28 lbs. of carrier oils and other liquids are dispensed in individual HDPE plastic gallon containers with handles, each holds the purchased net weight of liquid.

    30+ lbs. of carrier oils, other liquids, soft butters, Castile gel and other products are dispensed in plastic HDPE pails w/metal handles & pouring spouts in the lid; those products may remain inside the pails indefinitely when properly stored. After Covid, we reserve the right to use any packaging/dispensing container available to us and not mentioned above because it continues to be difficult many times to restock the same packaging container or material used in the past.

    NOTE: An EO may safely remain inside an aluminum container for up to 3 months, but if storing longer than 3 months the oil should be transferred to amber glass. Fragrances and carrier oils up to 8 lbs. may remain inside HDPE plastic bottles indefinitely. If the customer at any time feels more comfortable transferring a product to glass this should be done. ALL PRODUCTS ARE DISPENSED BY WEIGHT, THUS, SOME CONTAINERS MAY BE FILLED HIGHER THAN OTHERS DEPENDING ON THE WEIGHT AND VISCOSITY OF EACH PRODUCT.

    Raw materials/ingredients are dispensed by weight. Many customers ask how many ounces in a pound, there are 16 ounces in one pound. These are not fluid ounces, they are ounces by weight.

    HOW TO STORE: EOs, FOs and BUTTERS should be stored in tightly-sealed containers away from direct light and heat. Some EOs could be highly flammable, keep away from open flames. Keep all liquids and powders you purchase from Camden-Grey tightly capped and away from the reach of children, the elderly or infirm and pets. Refrigerating butters could adversely affect the consistency of the butter, please join our Forum if you need to learn how to handle, work with and store products.
