Latin Name: Cocos nucifera (Coconut) Nut Oil, Gardenia tahitensis (Monoi) Flower extract
Preparation: Monoi means scented oil. Tiare (Gardenia) flowers are macerated in refined Coprah Oil (coconut) for 12-15 days.
It is known as a moisturizer for both skin and hair. It penetrates and hydrates the skin rapidly and reduces transdermal water loss. You can use it in making creams, lotions, and soaps, but we love it as a simple, luxurious body oil.
Try melting it gently and adding essential oils such as Jasmine, Ylang Ylang, Neroli, and Sandalwood, or Desire Synergy.
This is a very nice product; however, when it solidifies it is hard to squeeze it out of the bottle.
I love the Gardenia scent on the Minogue oil. It's a great moisturizer plus the scent is a great pick me up.
Absolutely heavenly aroma; would love to have had it packaged in a tub rather than a bullet-style bottle for more convenient dispensing.
I have used a few products with Manoi in it so wanted to try it.
