Tamanu Oil Production

Tamanu oil, also known as Domba oil, is typically grown in the south Pacific islands. The nut of the tamanu tree is harvested and allowed to dry for about a month. During the drying process, the nut begins to produce it’s oil, becoming sticky to the touch. Oil is removed by cold pressing. It takes about 220 pounds of Tamanu fruit to produce 11 pounds of cold pressed Tamanu oil. The tamanu tree itself is elegant, growing up to 100 feet with sweet smelling blossoms. Tamanu oil is not Kosher certified and has a shelf life of up to 14 months. More info: tamanu oil
