TAMANU - The sacred tree with a thousand virtues

The Sacred tree with a thousand virtues

Monoi oil Tamanu

Used by indigenous tribes in the Pacific area to shape dog outs or ritual objects, Ati sacred tree still plays a key role in local pharmacopoeia: its fruits, leaves and roots have exceptional curative properties. Scientific studies* have highlighted for the time its healing, anti-bacterial, anti-parasitic and dramatic anti-inflammatory benefits.
