To treat an acne breakout
As Tamanu oil is rich in anti-bacterial and wound-healing properties, it make an effective treatment oil for acne. Use a roll-on applicator to gently apply this oil on the concerned areas as a spot treatment.
As an anti-aging skin serum
Being rich in fatty acids & antioxidants, Tamanu oil is effective for locking extra moisture and fighting UV damage.
Add 15 drops of Lavender, 5 drops of Ylang Ylang and 8 drops of Frankincense essential oils to 30ml Tamanu oil and 70ml Jojoba oil. Mix well and use a few drops as a facial serum or even as a body oil.
As an oil cleanser
Mix 10 ml of Tamanu oil with 30ml Jojoba oil. Add 9 drops of Frankincense essential oil and mix well. Pour a small amount into your hands and gently apply the oil onto your face (avoid the eyes) and massage in a circular motion with your fingertips.
Leave on for 1-2 minutes and gently wipe off with a warm, wet washcloth. Follow this with a gentle water-based cleanser to complete the cleansing procedure.
