About us

Our story

We are Vietnam Essential Oil JSC – the world leading Tamanu oil producer.
Tamanu is native tree in Vietnam and seen everywhere, especially in the Mekong Delta area. Tamanu trees grow wild in gardens, marshes, river banks, quarries along the river.

The Tamanu tree has been familiar to Vietnamese people for thousands of years. Tamanu becomes a symbol of the beauty of a girl, a symbol of love, fidelity and inspiration of poetry and folk songs.

Yellow butterflies perched on Tamanu branches.
In the afternoon, fallen leaves filled the river
Are you sad when you listen to songbirds?
Enjoy the Tamanu flower blossoms, I’m also sad “

“There is a river flowing in my memory
My village is on the right and your village is on the left of the river
Every day I go to to school by boat
On the boat, I looked for the shadow of a Tamanu
There is a yellow butterfly flying around the Tamanu flower
How many afternoons I want to cross the river to see you?
