It's so nice to see that someone else has benefitted from Tamanu oil.... I wasn't sure if I was just imagining it.
I recently started making my own lotions and pain creams after learning about all the bad things they put in store bought lotion. So I spent A LOT of time on researching different ingredients based on its healing properties. And there was a lot of trial and error when it came to coming up with my own pain relieving cream recipe.
My miracle cream includes 5 different types of Butters (Including Tamanu Butter), and 3 types of oils. They are all chosen based on their effectiveness with inflammation, circulation/blood flow, helps with spasms, etc etc. It also makes my skin feel like silk, I highly recommend everyone to look into the products you put on your body.
Remember, anything that you put ON your body, eventually makes its way IN your body. Most of the fillers in skin care products are really bad for you and happen to be linked to inflammatory diseases.
For a quick DIY cream, try:
- Shea Butter: 1 cup
- Coconut Oil: 1/2 cup
- Tamanu Butter: (you can find on Amazon) 1 cup
- Hemp Oil: 1/3 cup
- Beeswax: 1 TBS
- (optional) Corn Starch- Incase it leaves an oily residue feeling. : 1-2 tsp
1) Melt everything in a double boiler (or crockpot)
2) Pour into a glass bowl and put in freezer for 30 min, until you see the top layer of your lotion has solidified.
3) Mix with a hand mixer for a minute or so.. Until it reaches a nice creamy consistency.
Pour into individual jars and place back into frig. until you want to use that jar.
Keeping your extra jars in the frig. Will allow them to last longer. :-)
I hope this helps! :-)
Tamanu Oil and DMSO
Thank you for your post, it has helped at least one person.
My daughter was diagnosed with CRPS in her right foot on 12th February. We have used Tamanu Oil on the affected area and she has noticed a decrease in her pain levels along side increased mobility in her toes.
Thank you again from both of us.
