Dermatitis / Eczema


Are you seeking fast relief from skin conditions called Dermatitis (inflammation of the skin) or Eczema ((inflamed skin that is red, dry and itchy? If so, this guide dives into different Eczema/Dermatitis treatments including the use of Tamanu Oil – a natural, herbal remedy to treat Eczema/dermatitis quickly and effectively.


To begin with, topical therapeutic lotions are often prescribed by dermatologists as they contain active ingredients that help reduce inflammation and itching associated with eczema flares. These creams include steroids such as hydrocortisone or calcineurin inhibitors such tacrolimus in addition to moisturizers like petroleum jelly which are used to keep your skin soft and supple even during an outbreak of eczema.

Over-the-counter antihistamine cream can also provide temporary relief for the itchiness caused by eczema rashes.


When it comes to more severe cases of eczema or dermatitis flare ups there are certain compounds known as immunomodulators or biologics which may prove beneficial in providing relief from symptoms faster than many over the counter products alone can offer.

Biologic solutions have been gaining popularity due to their ability to target several specific types of white blood cells that contribute to inflammation therefore reducing sensitivity when exposed immediately after application. Immunomodulators penetrate deep into the epidermis layer increasing their effectiveness compared with traditional topical ointment solutions.


In many cases where steroid dependent therapies fail, phytotherapeutic herbs such as Licorice Root Extract may prove helpful since some research suggests this type of herb has natural anti-inflammatory properties while others report improved sleep quality resulted from consuming polysaccharides extracted from various plants including Evening Primrose Oil.

However, when it comes to natural remedies you can’t go past Tamanu Oil for the fast and effective relief of both eczema and dermatitis. Based on studies conducted by the National Institute Of Allergy And Infectious Disease those test subjects who applied aromatherapy oils containing essential fatty acids saw significant improvement in their overall skin health within weeks.

While Tamanu Oil is not an essential oil, this fatty nut oil is extremely high in essential fatty acids and even more importantly, has very powerful anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, analgesic, antioxidant, antimicrobial and wound-healing properties. It also has no known side effects unlike many other products or drugs for the treatment of dermatitis and eczema.

“Just a note of praise, one of the clients of the spa had dermatitis on her hands as a reaction to hand sanitizer. She was on a steroid cream which wasn’t really helping. After using tamanu oil she is now off the cream and dermatitis healed. I’ll try and get a written review, as apparently a lot of people are having similar issues with sanitisers. Thanks for your help”.
