What on earth is tamanu oil?! Well, you are about to find out.

This is what happens when you go down a rabbit hole trying to find relief for your eczema and you come across “tamanu oil for eczema.”

Your brain is like “I must try this now!”

But before you do and drop some hard-earned cash…this is what you need to know.

Origins of Tamanu Oil for Eczema

Before I tell you all the amazing benefits, let me give you a quick history lesson.

Tamanu oil is made from the seeds of the Tamanu Nut Tree in Southeast Asia.

It is found in Thailand, Vietnam, Myanmar, Malaysia, South India, Sri Lanka, and the Melanesian and Polynesian island.

This is key information. Because when you buy it, make sure it’s sourced from one of these countries.

It’s also been used medicinally for centuries by various Asian, African, and Pacific Island Cultures.

We clearly need to start healing ourselves like our ancestors. Mother Nature has given us everything we need.

Yet we still don’t use it.

Okay, enough with the history lesson, tell me the benefits!

But before you buy it, you need to know one last thing.


If you are allergic to nuts…this may not be for you. I’m sorry. I’m also allergic to nuts too so we can be sad together, lol!

Because tamanu oil is made from the Tamanu Nut Tree, use it with caution.

It’s kind of ironic that tamanu oil for eczema is popular. I know of a lot of people who have eczema and nut allergies.

But this is for people without a nut allergy.

And hey, when applied on the skin, you may not react to tamanu oil.

So definitely do a patch test. Make sure someone in your circle can use it before you buy it.

That way, if you do react, it’s not a waste of money. Someone else can use it.
