Monoi de Tahiti is an Endless Summer


Nothing says Summer like the sweet fragrant Monoi Oil of Tahiti also known simply as “Fleur de Tahiti”. Monoi de Tahiti is a precious and exotic cosmetic oil manufactured in Polynesia following traditional methods. The oil is created by soaking and macerating 10 Tiare flowers from French Polynesia in one liter of refined coconut oil for a minimum of 10 days.
