Monoi is created by soaking/macerating Tiare petals in refined coconut oil for 15 days. Our true Monoi de Tahiti carries an Appellation of Origin guarantee and is produced under very controlled manufacturing methods to ensure the highest quality oil. Monoi de Tahiti has been shown to penetrate and hydrate the skin rapidly and to reduce trans-epidermal water loss. It is a luxurious pre-shampoo or leave in treatment for dry hair. Many use it just for the fragrance - the heavenly natural smell will transport you to the tropics. Just spread a few drops onto your palms and apply to hair and body. For use as a perfume dab a bit directly on pulse points. 60 ml in a glass treatment pump.
Important Information to Note:
Authentic Monoi de Tahiti may solidify (and sometimes unevenly) below 72 degrees F. This is a natural process which does not change or affect its special properties. To restore its fluidity, simply warm your Monoi de Tahiti in a cup of hot tap water and enjoy the additional penetrating benefits of warm Monoi de Tahiti.
How to use Monoi:
Unlike any other skin moisturizers Monoi de Tahiti is so rich and so highly concentrated that one needs to use only a few drops at the time. With Monoi de Tahiti "LESS IS BETTER" and you do not need to wait weeks to see results. They are instantaneous. Your skin looks better immediately, more hydrated and therefore more youthful, healthy looking.
On Your Body:
Monoi de Tahiti is ideal for all skin types but is most beneficial for people who suffer from dry or very dry skin problems. The best way to use Monoi de Tahiti on your body is to apply it immediately after a shower or a bath when your skin is still moist. For best results, towel dry your body then rub a few drops of Monoi de Tahiti in your hands and massage all over. Repeat if necessary especially on dry spots like elbows and legs. Massage gently until it is completely absorbed into the skin which will feel satin soft and silky smooth. If your skin is particularly dry, even scaly dry, Monoi de Tahiti is the ideal moisturizer for you. Used regularly it will help restore its natural healthy, smooth and soft appearance to your skin.
On Your Face:
Because it is 100% natural from vegetal ingredients, Monoi de Tahiti is safe to use on your face. It will soak right through and leave your face more youthful, more healthy looking.
TO USE: pour a few drops of Monoi de Tahiti on the tip of your fingers and apply gently. Blot any excess with a soft tissue & you can even apply your favorite compact powder over during the day time. At night leave on straight. If you skin is oily do not use. If your skin is a combination of oily and dry spots, use sparingly in the dry areas only. At night, gently dab a few drops of Monoi de Tahiti around the delicate area of the eyes and gently blot any excess.
In Your Hair:
The beauty of Tahitian women is legendary. Their beautiful, lustrous hair is particularly famous. Their secret is Monoi de Tahiti which they use frequently as a pre-shampoo deep conditioner.
TO USE: simply warm your Monoi de Tahiti bottle under HOT TAP WATER until it is quite warm. Apply generously all over your hair especially if it is dry, dull or chemically damaged or chemically processed.
Cover your hair with a plastic cap and with a towel to create a warming effect which will help the deep-conditioning process. Leave on for 30 minutes or as long as you wish. The longer the treatment, the better the results. Remove the towel and the plastic cap. Wash your hair thoroughly and see for yourself the difference. Your hair will become soft, full and bouncy and incredible shiny. If you hair is particularly damaged, repeat that process at least twice a week.
In Your Bath:
Monoi de Tahiti is a natural aromatherapy ingredient par excellence. To create a sensational relaxing moment in your bath pour a few drops of Monoi de Tahiti in hot, steamy water and enjoy this well-deserved pleasure, surrounded by the delicate fragrance of the enchanting Tahitian Gardenia. Just close your eyes and relax as you imagine being transported to the romantic islands of Tahiti. After you bath massage Monoi de Tahiti all over your body while your skin is still warm & moist. The heat will help Monoi de Tahiti soak right through and will bring additional deep-moisturizing benefits to your skin.
Hands & Feet:
Very often neglected, our feet/hands are our most precious tools. It ia a wonderful idea to take care of them and to pamper them at least once a week. Monoi de Tahiti is ideal for your feet/hands as a deep-moisturizing treatment especially for people who suffer from excessive dry skin or calluses. For best results take a hot foot bath to soften the skin, towel dry & apply Monoi de Tahiti or Monoi de Tahiti butter on your hands or feet. Massage until absorbed. For severe cases we recommend a deeper treatment which consists of applying Monoi de Tahiti or Monoi de Tahiti butter on your hands or feet and cover with plastic gloves over cotton gloves for hands or a plastic bag over socks for the feet and leave on overnight. Wash and repeat for a few days.
