Monoi de Tahiti is a natural oil created by soaking the indigenous Gardenia Tahitensis (Tiare) flowers in coconut oil extracted from coconuts that are grown in the mineral rich volcanic soil of the Tahitian islands. Tiare flowers are rich in salycylates (especially Methyl salicyclate). During the soaking process, known as “effleurage”, the Tiare flowers release their fragrance and special properties into the coconut oil. The unique result obtained is what differentiates Monoi de Tahiti from ordinary coconut oil.
