Tamanu tree

Tamanu – the tree is clearly being bleed and harvested by all Island groups in the Soceity, Gambier, Tuamotus, and the Marquesas, in all the villages I visited all have their own recipes to apply Tamanu tree oil, via the bark or the nuts are extracted. Every beach I visited, had trees and almost ever tree had been tapped or has  had bark removed for the purpose of medical use!
