1. Seed Collection: Tamanu oil is extracted from the seeds of the tamanu tree. A tamanu fruit produces a single large seed, which consists of a kernel enclosed in a soft and hard seed coat. The seeds are collected from the fruit for further processing.
  2. Drying: The collected seeds are then dried in the sun for a period of 1 to 2 months. This drying process allows the oil to accumulate in the seeds, preparing them for oil extraction.
  3. De-shelling: After the drying period, the seeds are de-shelled to access the kernel inside. This kernel contains the oil that is sought after for its various beneficial properties.
  4. Oil Extraction: Once the seeds are de-shelled, they are then pressed to extract the oil. The raw oil is filtered and then packaged for sale. Tamanu oil is typically yellow to green in color and has a nutty smell.
  5. Usage: Tamanu oil has been traditionally used topically to treat a wide range of skin injuries, from burns and scars to infected wounds and skin diseases such as dermatosis, urticaria, and eczema. It is known for its wound healing, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties.
