The Deepest Secret of the Pacific
Monoi is a traditional product at the roots of Polynesian culture. It is a protected designation of origin (PDO) in Tahiti, particularly because of the meticulous and special preparation it requires. This unique formula with multiple properties is obtained after a long natural maceration of the petals of the Tiare flower in coconut oil, this ancestral method is still used today. The Tiare flower, or Gardenia tahitensis, is a traditional Polynesian plant that is very precious to the inhabitants of the islands. This ingredient is iconic and a symbol of purity and harmony throughout Tahitian history. Although all Polynesians use Monoi on a daily basis, it retains its sacred aspect and remains much more than a simple natural care. In Polynesian culture, Monoi represents the 4 elements : water, earth, air and sun.
