AM Monoi Butter

Add to favourites
Tiare: Small shrub found in most Pacific islands where it is particularly fond of coral soils. The best-known use of Tiare is in the preparation of monoi. The flowers, picked in bud, are macerated in refined copra oil for several days. Monoi is very well known for shining the hair and softening the skin and its use has spread far beyond Polynesia. Tiare is also used in many traditional remedies. In the form of an infusion or maceration, the flower is used locally to relieve earaches, styes, mosquito bites, migraines, etc. Coconut tree: Coconut oil is used in the traditional manufacture of "Monoï de Tahiti" that is obtained by macerating tiare flowers for several days in coconut oil. The Polynesians use this preparation to protect the skin and hair from the harmful effects of the sun and sea salt.
