Monoi de Tahiti is a fabulous oil that's lovely for the skin and has a gentle floral aroma like gardenia flowers. It is made by macerating fresh Tiare flowers in pure coconut oil, and can only be produced in French Polynesia. The oil is left to naturally infuse, and is then filtered before being packaged. We'd stress that we supply a completely natural Monoi oil, so the aroma is a light floral. This is because our Monoi has not been "enhanced" with synthetic fragrance oils. We'd rather stock a completely natural Monoi oil, since it's more suited to people with sensitive skin.
When applied to the skin, natural Monoi it has a distinctive non-greasy feel making it perfect for use as a natural facial moisturiser, since it can be applied under make-up. Our Monoi de Tahiti is the highest quality available. It is an extremely versatile oil and can be used as a body massage oil, and hair treatment oil. it is a lovely oil to use on the legs, and many customers use it to massage dry shins since it moisturises the skin without leaving it feeling too greasy. Natural (non-enhanced) Monoi is suitable for all skin types, and tests have proven it to be hypoallergenic and suitable for sensitive skin. The smaller roller ball bottle is handy for applying to the face, but we recommend the larger bottle for body massage, for hot oil hair treatments and to add to the bath.
Choose from a handy 10ml glass rollerball bottle or 100ml aluminium bottle.
Monoi is naturally a solid oil below 20 degrees C, so to use simply place the bottle in hot water for a few moments. This will gently melt the Monoi, so it will flow into the rollerball and can be applied to the face. In hot weather, the Monoi will be permanently be a liquid.
Never heat Monoi in the microwave.
