Jeannine Sanchez is the brains, soul and founder behind Tamanu Oil Lab, a tamanu focused brand of pared down yet efficacious products that we have grown to simply love! Not only that, she’s also the influencer behind Organic Oracle, an account with nearly 40k followers focusing on living a clean lifestyle. We had the pleasure of interviewing her on the Why’s and How’s of her amazing brand :
Hi Jeannine! We’re so happy to have you on board! Please let us know a little bit more about yourself and how / why you started Tamanu Oil Lab.
We all hit potholes in life and my personal story is no different. By the age of thirty, I had under-gone several back surgeries. I was in pain and had lost my passion for life. I felt numb and like I lost the ability to see the beauty of all the gifts right in front of me. I wasn’t able to connect or appreciate all my blessings.
I decided things had to change! I remembered I used to have a passion for life. I deserved to live a life full of gratitude, and my loved ones deserved a positive and present role model. This is when I found a beautiful group of loving, passionate and truly happy individuals in the yoga community. Through the generosity of the instructors and love of the wonderful people I have met along the way, combined with the mindfulness that yoga teaches, I learned that life could be as amazing as I wanted it to be. I just had to make that choice! I slowly began to become more present and to be grateful for every gift the world has given me and appreciate the love and beauty that was all around, especially the love and sweet spirit of my daughter. I started to live again.
From that point forward, I made the decision to find a way to share hope and inspiration. I wanted to find a way to help people. My journey into the holistic community led me toward a growing appreciation for natural products and the power of essential oils to delight the senses and positively affect the limbic system of the brain! After much research and exploration, I discovered the power of Tamanu oil and knew this was something that could help so many people and decided this was the way for me to share hope and give back!
What does building a company mean to you and what does your logo signify?
“Tamanu Oil Lab is a company built for people who love natural products. Our specially tailored oils don’t just clear up acne, iron out wrinkles, and give your skin a healthy glow; they also make you feel great all the way into your soul.”
Every ingredient in our blends works in harmony with each other, offering a powerful formula that causes noticeable changes to your skin. The essential oils within each bottle produce soothing aromas help wash away stress and promote empowerment, clarity, focus and joy.
When you use pure, naturally sourced products on your skin, you look better. When you look better, you feel better, and when you feel better the sky is the limit in what you can achieve. Our mission is not just to make each and every one of our customers feel beautiful (you’re already beautiful), but to create happiness, peace, and joy in their lives each and every day.
“The deltas in our logo stand for the cornerstones of our mission : Beauty of the soul promotes beauty of the mind promotes beauty of the flesh.”
We only use organic, cold-pressed oils in our products that are sustainably derived. Our products are never tested on animals (although we do use them to treat our furry family members).
The clean beauty space is extremely crowded. How do you differentiate yourself from the rest of the crowd?
We know that our customers care about what goes on their skin, and where it comes from, which is why we never dilute our products with fillers or chemicals. Within every bottle of Tamanu Oil Lab, you’ll find a pure mixture of therapeutic-grade essential oils and cold-pressed Tamanu oil sourced from the small, pristine island of Malekula in the South Pacific where the natives harvest it in line with their spiritual practices. All our products are 100% organic, vegan and cruelty free.
