Monoi, meaning "scented oil" in Polynesian, is the result of the successful combination of two typical products of the islands: Coconut and the Tiare flower. The coconut flesh dried in the hot tropical sun is then processed to obtain a precious oil with well known softening, smoothing, and protective properties. Tiare flowers, symbol of Tahiti and typical adornment of local women, are soaked in this oil to enrich it with their warm and intoxicating fragrance. Monoi de Tahiti is a typical aspect of Polynesian culture handed down from ancient times, traditionally used for beauty and to perfume the skin and hair.
