It was love at first sight. Or should we say love at first touch?
Ever since we first heard about the South Pacific’s “First Aid Oil” we knew we had to have it.
We’ve lost count of how many happy peeps have been helped by Dilo Oil’s mind boggling makeup of polyphenols, coumarins and calophyllic acid. It’s truly amazing stuff, and it’s 100% pure… courtesy of mother nature.
Why do we call it Dilo Oil?
You might have heard of Tamanu Oil? Well, Dilo Oil and Tamanu Oil are the same thing.
This magical oil actually goes by many names – Kamanu, Foraha, Daok, Pinnay and Beauty Leaf Oil (for good reason!).
But we call it Dilo (Dee-lo) because that is what the people of Fiji call it, and that is where we are lucky enough to get our Dilo oil from. Our Dilo Oil is wild harvested by Fijian locals, supporting the local community.
The beauty Of Fijian Dilo Oil
In the Pacific Islands, when it comes to traditional remedies Dilo is used for just about everything and anything. Cuts, grazes, nappy rash, skin rashes, stings, bites, blisters, burns and sunburn are just a few things Dilo Oil is used to help with. What a bag of magic tricks.
It’s even known as nature’s first aid kit for your skin. And that’s not all.
One exciting study conducted by BioScience Labs showed that Tamanu oil can reduce the size of scars and fade their appearance. It doesn’t get rid of them and it doesn’t happen overnight. In the study scars decreased in size and texture had improved after 9 weeks.
Can you picture us up on the Happy soap box singing the therapeutic powers of this unique ingredient? Yep?
Well… we would be up there but we might get in trouble with the TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration). And golly gosh we don’t want to go getting ourselves into a legal pickle so let’s focus on how Dilo Oil can help in non-therapeutic ways. A quick Google will tell you all about the stuff we’re not allowed to 😉
What we can tell you is that 100% pure Dilo Oil is nature’s perfect serum. There’s no need for complex formulas – this silky nut oil from pristine Fiji is a skin superhero.
Personally we haven’t come across any other oil that helps problem skin like Dilo/Tamanu Oil does. It’s so good for your skin because it’s a natural anti-inflammatory and it has the ability to help form new skin tissue.
