Magic In a Bottle For Your Skin

9 Jul


Summertime means a lot more exposure to the sun, and outdoor fun.  Exposure will most likely bring an occasional sunburn or two.  Head on down to your favorite health food store, and pick yourself up some Tamanu Oil.  This natural oil is pressed from the nuts of the Calophyllum tacamahaca tree typcially  found in Polynesia.


It is rich in antioxidants, and is a natural anti-inflammatory.  It can be used for many skin ailments including:

  • sunburn
  • acne
  • psoriasis
  • diaper rash
  • cuts, scrapes and abrasions
  • stretch marks
  • athlete’s foot

It is incredibly moisturizing which helps aid in the healing process.  Pure 100% Tamanu oil should be in every medicine cabinet.  It’s properties go far beyond the first aid kit, dabbed around the eyes it makes a GREAT anti-wrinkle treatment.  Don’t take my word for it, at approximately $20 a bottle it is well worth every penny you’ll spend.

Stay gorgeous girls….
