It wasn’t until I was introduced to the delicious skin care line, Eminence Organics, that I had even heard of this POWERHOUSE ingredient: MONOI OIL (meaning “scented oil”). I feel the need to spread the word about its goodness with my fellow mermaids. I promise you it’s the best thing since coconut oil, but oh, WAIT… Monoi oil IS made with coconut oil! A Polynesian beauty breakthrough, Monoi is made by soaking Tahitian gardenia flower petals in coconut oil for a month. Talk about a delicacy... The dainty smell is what made me fall in love with it and the more I play with it, the more I witness incredible skin benefits for myself and clients! As soon as I start applying a product infused with Monoi during a facial, my clients immediately perk up and ask what they are smelling! Not only is it straight-up liquid gold for your skin, it can be used on your hair to heal and protect.
For your skin, expect to see benefits such as increased hydration and suppleness with great relief to dry skin. The protective antioxidants and ferulic acid within the coconut oil fight against free radicals which in turn keeps your skin looking young and healthy.
Those suffering from eczema could also try this oil as an outlet for intense hydration and healing as Monoi oil was voted superior in a clinical study compared to jojoba oil, shea butter, and Vaseline oils due it’s extended moisturizing properties. Pregnant momma’s can also use this oil daily to prevent stretch marks which is always news we want to hear!
So let’s choose to accept this glorious gift from our Earth with gratitude. Enjoy the delightful scent, put it to use, and reap the benefits yourself for a more vibrant, healthy YOU.
