Organic Monoi de Tahiti Butter - Imported From Tahiti
Monoi butter is a soft, velvety cream made from the oils of sweet almonds and coconut combined with Tiare essence. A proprietary formula of Tahiti, Monoi butter offers rich moisturizing benefits for skin and hair. You can almost imagine the native women stroking Monoi butter to gloss their tresses and smooth their caramel complexions.
Monoi butter is made through a process called enfleurage, a painstaking extraction method. It works like this: Before the blossoms open, they are picked by hand, then rushed to a perfumery plant. There, they are steeped in oil for no less than 15 days. The time-consuming process slowly releases the flower’s unique properties for use in perfumery. Related to the glistening gardenia, Tiare is the floral emblem of French Polynesia, celebrated as the flower of love and renowned for its nutrient-rich essence. A creamy white, pinwheel-shaped flower, it releases a scent that’s heady, at turns sweet and exotic. A Tiare flower worn behind one’s ear is said to signal the wearer’s romantic availability.

Monoi moisturizes skin so well that, in the ancient times, early Polynesians used to cover their newborn babies from head to toe with Monoi to protect them from dehydration.
