I became quite happy when I first learned about the advantages of using natural and organic coconut oil on my hair and skin. And I have been using food-grade natural coconut oil as a skin and hair conditioner for a few months now with good results. My skin is softer and my dark hair is smooth and shiner than ever before. Oh, and some people think I smell quite wonderful too. You can't beat that yummy coconut aroma. The advantages of using Coconut Oil - a product ignored and misunderstood for hundreds of years in the Western world but not in the East - are wonderful. So you can imagine my delight once I read about French-Tahitian Monoi Oil in one of my personal favorite periodicals. Oh yes I made a snap decision step-up my game and try something new. First just a bit of background In its most natural state Monoi de Tahiti is the result of macerating the tiare flower, an indigenous Tahitian gardenia, in refined coconut extract for at least 10 days slowly but surely infusing the oil with botanical nutrients a delicate natural flowered aroma. Monoi has played a notable role within the Polynesian society for centuries ancestral rites in traditional medicine local pharmacopoeia or in their personal care. Monoi continues to play a role in the rich Polynesian culture today. In contrast to pure coconut-oil I was not able to obtain Monoi oil in a non-cosmetic formula. Okay so it is not to be used in cooking. Many different cosmetic Monoi oil products is sold in trendy shops like Neiman Marcus and Saks starting at 60 and up for a 3 or 4 fl. oz. These are typically packaged beautifully and a few brand names are available with a tiare in the container. If you're anything like me a great deal always trumps a luxury shopping experience. If that's so you can try Monoi Tiare Tahiti which carries the Appellation d'Origine a impressive honor given to it by the French Government by Decree n. 92-340 in 1992. The Appellation d'Origine means that the product or service features true Monoi de Tahiti. Monoi de Tahiti was a first for any aesthetic product to get this French designation that represents recognition of unique local expertise combined with the distinctive qualities and characteristics of the Polynesian soil. You will find Monoi Tiare Tahiti online for just 10 to 20 and the delightful Tahitian gardenia is packaged together as well. Tahitian Monoi oil is definitely a product of the tropics and because all natural Monoi consists of no emulsifiers to hold it in a liquid state it hardens at temperatures below 68 F 20 C. That is perfectly natural. If it happens simply run warm water on the container until the oil liquefies again. So how did it work on my hair and skin I am not sure if I will give up my day-to-day coconut routine but as a hair and skin conditioner Monoi absolutely works. Monoi is made with highly refined coconut oil. As a skin moisturiser it is lighter and much easier to massage into your skin. Thirsty skin soaks in Monoi instantly and it leaves only a soft shine. Monoi feels terrific on my skin and the gardenia scent is definitely heavenly. Like coconut oil Monoi de Tahiti is also an excellent hair conditioner. Pour a small amount into the palm of your hand and rub it into your hair. Shampoo the oil out after waiting 10 to 15 minutes. The oil penetrates the hair shaft and bonds to proteins to repair damaged hair eyelashes and brows and actually fortifies them against breakage. Like coconut oil Monoi de Tahiti is also an amazing hair conditioner. Pour a small amount into the palm of your hand and rub it into your hair. Shampoo the oil out after waiting around 10 to 15 minutes. The oil enters the hair shaft and bonds to proteins to repair damaged hair eye lashes and brows and actually fortifies them against breakage. My hair feels great after using Monoi oil. I've got to confess that I also found myself dabbing a bit into my hand and using my fingers to sweep away a few unruly wisps through the day. It's not possible to do that with pure coconut oil which is thick and fibrous. Overall I found Monoi oil to be a terrific hair and skin conditioner and moisturizer. And it is an awesome product to take along in my purse for use during the day.
