Monoi Oil is a super cool gift from nature. Tahitian for "scented oil", it has been one of the best beauty secrets in Hawaii for longer than any of us can remember. It contains no sulfates, parabens, silicones, phthalates or anything synthetic whatsoever. It is the pure combination of Coconut Oil and the nature essence of Tiare Flowers (Tahitian Gardenias). Monoi Oil is created by pure extra virgin coconut oil being pressed from the natural falling of coconuts from their palm tree. Then, the tiare flower is soaked in that coconut oil for approximately a month. Sorry for the long answer but we love it so much and we know you will too.
