Foraha ( Tamanu)

Botanical: Calophyllum Inophyllum

This beautiful opalescent cold   pressed green, slightly waxy oil is rich and thick, with a delicate nutty or spicy smell.

 It is a pure  extract from Foraha tree, a wild tree in Madagascar, the nuts are dried in   the sun for approximately two months while still in their slightly-cracked   shells, then they are cold-pressed to extract the oil. 200 pounds of the   fruits extract only about 10 pounds of foraha oil. The Oil extracted is 100%   pure Foraha Oil with no additives, and does not contain any artificial  chemicals.

And  since this is a rather thick  oil, you should always stir well before using to allow any matter which may  have settled at the bottom of the container to become well mixed once again.
