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.
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.
God send miracle
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.
This oil is good for so many skin issues. It's one of my favorites. I'll buy it again. And again. And again!
Great for so many things!
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.
WONDERFUL TAMANU OIL
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.
Miracle in a bottle
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.
it really does smell wonderful
Actually, I liked it so much that I used it instead of shea butter in my latest batch of lip balm, and it only needed a single drop of clove oil to round it out. it's a richer green than the best olive oil, and is somewhere between coconut oil and shea butter as far as solidifying in the cold, it does NOT curdle when heated to melting and recooled, making it my new first choice for poulticing and 'barrier' creams, where the slightly waxy quality is a good thing. In lip balm, it is fragrant, and soothing, and tolerated well by both finicky husband and mature/sensitive skin. I am very much looking forward to experimenting with this oil!
