Monoi oils will capture your imagination and transport you through fragrances to the beautiful islands of Tahiti.
Monoi Tiare Tahiti is a French-Tahitian cosmetic oil consisting of pure coconut oil and the fragrance of “Tiare”, the Tahitian Gardenia. The product is a refinement of an ancient Polynesian beauty secret and has been manufactured commercially by Parfumerie Tiki since 1942.
It is a trademark of the company to place a dried “Tiare” or Tahitian Gardenia flower in every bottle to show that this is the true monoi.
Please note that because of the natural properties of coconut oil, MONOI oil will solidify at temperatures below 68 F (20 C). This is a natural process that occurs because genuine MONOI contains no emulsifiers to keep it in a liquid state. It can look like it is spoiled as the solidifying first starts. Simply place the bottle in warm water or in a warm grasp to return it to a golden liquid form. Solidifying and warming will not affect the original properties of MONOI. Do NOT use a microwave oven to warm MONOI.
