The Tamanu is considered as a sacred tree for a long time. It is planted in the «marae» (sacred sites). It was said that the gods were hiding in trees to watch humans without being seen. Its wood was used exclusively to produce totems, tiki and idols.
Thanks to this protection, the Tamanu tree became widespread in Polynesia, where it makes magnifi cent forests overlooking the «Motu» (coral reefs). It is appreciated for its sweet-scented flowers and elegant foliage, planted along the streets.
With the Polynesian’s conversion to Christianity, the exploitation of these trees became intensive for their leaves, oil and fruits used in various fields.
In the 50s, the first scientific studies on the oil extracted from the nuts helped to highlight the exceptional healing properties: regenerative, healing, moisturizing, anti-bacterial, anti-parasitic
and a surprising anti-inflammatory activity.
Nowadays, the Tamanu or «ati» with many powers is still important in the local pharmacopoeia. It is known for its exceptional healing properties.
