Monoi de tahiti oil is an ancient polynesian beauty secret. This unique beauty product is still made using the traditional, century-old Polynesia method in Tahiti.
Two special ingredients make up authentic formulas for tahitian monoi oil products.
The marriage combination consists of the blend of refined coconut oil and the “Tiaré” flowers in a specific technique and with strict production guidelines followed.
The specific Cocos nucifera palm coconuts used for monoi oil contains many additional vitamins and proteins than other types of trees that grow in other areas.
Tight specifications ensure genuine ingredients have been used and high quality standards are kept.
The Tahitian gardenia (Tiaré) is a star-shaped delicate snow-white petal flower native to Polynesia that blossoms all year long.
This native flower is highly popular and used as a hair adornment over the ear by both men and women of Polynesia and also used extensively in leis and hei’.
The tiare oil was used in traditional medicine for its soothing and healing properties, for many remedies such as easing ear aches, headaches, insect bites, and various inflammations such as eczema, and psoriasis.
The very fragrant, floral aroma of the tiaré blossoms is the key ingredient used in the preparation of Monoi de Tahiti oil.
According to the specific standards that are set and carefully monitored, the hand-picked, un-opened flowers (at least 10), are carefully placed in refined coconut oil to soak for a duration of at least 15 days while they go through a natural extraction process called "enfleurage,” to slowly release their unique properties.
