Great for dry, sensitive skin

I love this oil. I have dry, sensitive skin prone to rosacea and this oil helps keep my skin hydrated. No strong scent, there is a smell but it’s very organic. I will repeat what other people have been saying - the bottle/dropper need some work. I always have oil all over my hands after using it.

Thank you for your review, we appreciate your feedback and are glad you are loving your oil!

Incredible Oil, Great Price, Poor Packaging

Love the product so much - really high quality, seemed fresh, and was a great price.

However the droppers became quickly detached from the surrounding screw on top, ruining the product by exposing it to air and causing a bit mess.

Could be a fluke though - love the actual oil!

Hi Brian! We are happy to hear you are enjoying this product! Although, we are so sorry to hear this about the dropper. Please email our customer service at and we would be happy to send out a new product for you and help answer any questions. Sorry again, we appreciate your feedback!

I use Tamanu Oil daily as part of my facial routine. It also quickly heals any sores, bug bites. I love this stuff.

Thank you for your review, we are glad you are loving your Essentials™ Tamanu Oil!

Great oil

I have been loving this oil. It does hydrate and helps soothe my chapped skin from this cold winter weather

Thank you for your review!

Only good things to say

I think this oil is very good for moisturizing. I think my skin type is oily because I have big pores on the front of my face and I easily get acne. I'm not sure if it helps with acne just because I've never really been able to get rid of it (not severe though), but I would definitely buy this again. It has a very strong smell, but I enjoy it. I use it at night and when I wake up in the morning, I love how soft and properly moisturized my face feels. Also the price is great for what you get.

Thank you for your review, we are so happy you are enjoying this oil!

    The Importance of Virgin, Cold-Pressed Oils for Skin

    What are Carrier Oils

    Oils used for moisturizing the skin, often known as carrier oils, are a rich source of fatty acids obtained from the nuts, kernels or seeds of plants. These oils hydrate and support skin's natural processes, among many other benefits. 

    The purity and processing of oils are vital to delivering maximum benefit for skin when applied. When oils are unrefined (virgin) and cold-pressed, they are extracted using only low, controlled temperatures and mechanical methods. No chemicals or excess heat are used, allowing the phenolic compounds, tocopherols, sterols phospholipids and other skin-loving components to be preserved.  

    How to Use Tamanu Oil:

    • Use as a facial moisturizer to hydrate and soften skin.
    • Apply directly on dry, flaky skin anywhere and massage in gently for instant relief and comfort.
    • Tame frizzy hair by rubbing a few drops between your palms and combing fingers through strands, focusing on the ends.
    • Add a drop of tamanu oil to your liquid foundation, bronzer, or moisturizer to achieve a luminous glow. This can prevent coverage from looking dry and caky.
    • Soften a scratchy beard by applying a drop or two of tamanu oil and combing through. Can also be used to soothe irritated post-shave skin on the face and neck.
    • Apply a small amount of tamanu oil to dry, cracked feet and heels before bed to wake up with soft and nourished feet. Put on a pair of clean socks to avoid staining sheets.
    • Replenish dry cuticles by massaging a drop of tamanu oil in with fingertips. Repeat as often as needed.
