Monoi de Tahiti® is a natural oil resulting of soaking together the indigenous Gardenia Tahitensis (Tiare) flowers which are rich in salycylates into refined Cocos Nucifera (coconut )oil grown in the mineral rich volcanic soil of the Tahitian islands. During the soaking process, known as "effleurage”, the Gardenia Tahitensis flowers release its natural fragrance and special properties into the coconut oil.
Tiare flowers (Gardenia Taitensis) are handpicked as buds and must be used within 24 hours of harvesting. According to local tradition, the maceration must last a minimum of 10 days and requires at least ten Tiare flowers per liter of refined oil."Decree 92-340 - April 1st, 1992 modified by the text N°313/CM of February 20th, 2008.

To return it to fluidity, simply reheat your Monoi de Tahiti by running the bottle under warm tap water until it liquefies again. NEVER USE A MICROWAVE OVEN.
