Monoi de Tahiti is an exotic, delicately aromatic oil produced to exacting specifications in Polynesia. This precious oil is still produced in the same manner as it was over a thousand years ago.

Oil that bears the name Monoi de Tahiti must be manufactured according to a French governmental decree that explicitly describes the age-old tradition, specific ingredients and the careful process by which this nutritive oil must be made.

Monoi de Tahiti is created by macerating 10 intensely fragrant tiare flowers per litre of naturally refined coconut oil. The coconuts and tiare flowers used in Monoi de Tahiti must be grown within French Polynesia, and the maceration process must last at least 10 days. Tiare flowers are also known as Tahitian gardenias or Tiare Tahiti.

Important: Our Monoi de Tahiti is 100% pure and authentic. Our Monoi de Tahiti Oil possesses a light, natural aroma of coconut oil that has been imparted with a very delicate floral aroma of the Tiare flowers that have been macerated into the coconut oil. The aroma of our Monoi de Tahiti is very light. It contains no added synthetic fragrances.

Our Monoi de Tahiti carries the Appellation of Origin (AO) certificate that guarantees that the oil is produced under strictly controlled manufacturing methods, and it ensures the highest quality Monoi de Tahiti.

The fresh tiare blooms infused into Monoi de Tahiti lend an exquisite, delicate floral aroma to this nutritive oil. The blooms are rich in terpenic alcohol and esters that include methyl salicylate. Monoi de Tahiti has also been traditionally used to soothe insect bites and care for a range of skin concerns. Its delicate floral aroma make it a soothing addition to sun care products. It is also a luxurious, relaxing massage oil.

Comments: I had really high hopes based on the description of the Monoi de Tahiti, that I bought a one pound container of it. Well, I am so disappointed, everything I have read about this states that there is a lovely floral aroma. I realise it is in the coconut oil, but there is absolutely no floral aroma coming from this, nor any other aroma. I will order from other companies and do a comparison. Had I realised it was not going to smell of anything, I would not have bought the one pound container, which I am now stuck with. Also I am not the only one that smelt it.

FNWL Response: Hi Victoria, Indeed, the aroma is very delicate and is that of authentic blossoms. The aroma of our Monoi de Tahiti is characteristic of authentic Monoi de Tahiti. Unfortunately, there are companies that sell products that they?claim are "Monoi de Tahiti" but that actually contain?synthetic fragrance. As a result, some customers who are familiar with the artificial products can sometimes be surprised by the much softer aroma of authentic Monoi de Tahiti. We always?want to ensure that our customers are pleased with our product quality and service. I am going to ask our customer care department to reach out to you to address your concerns personally. They'll be in touch with you as?soon as possible!
