descriptionMonoi Butter is a soft, velvety butter containing the essence of the tropical Tiare flower, famous for its aromatherapy action. The Tiare flower is well known in Polynesia for its exotic tropical essence and use in skin and hair care. The manufacturer has combined that essence into an exclusive exotic butter blend which goes on smooth and retains the Tiare essence on the skin. The melting point of this butter is nominally 42 C, making it ideal as a butter-like balm. If combined into an emulsion for creams and lotions, Monoi Butter will add moisturizing benefits as well as essential aroma aspects to the finished product.
Monoi Butter exhibits excellent spreadability on the skin, making it ideal as a massage butter or carrier for treatment products. It adds moisturizing attributes to creams and lotions and bar soaps. May be used in cosmetics, toiletries, soaps & balms, hair care and sun care preparations.
Suggested uses: Use from 3% to 100% pure (as a butter-like balm). SAP value: 175-200. General information: Soft, off white, solid to partially solid fat depending on ambient temperature.

I'm in love
OMGosh!!! Reading all the reviews I couldn't wait to try this and sooo glad I did. As with any of the CG butters I've tried, it is velvety soft and melts quickly to soften and nourish your skin. I've been a nurse for over 30 yrs and we wash our hands so often, you need something more than a lotion with a pretty smell. Well, this is the BOMB! I think it smells like honeysuckle!! which I totally adore, but it also seems to have a few different notes in it, so don't judge it if you think you don't care for honeysuckle. It has a delicate-strong smell, though I say 'strong' guardedly. It's very classy and plain AMAZING. I'm glad I ordered 8 ounces, but will definately be ordering more. It's so good that I'm afraid to add butters or anything to it as the lovely aroma will be watered down, and I'm afraid to add any e.o. or fragrance to it as it's PERFECT--so why ruin it? Please give this a try and I'm certain you too will become a fan.

This butter smells amazing! And it literally melts into my hair without weighing it down. A little goes a long way, and I'm in love with it!

I was curious about Monoi scent, and am I glad I tried it! It is intoxicating and addictive! I kept opening and smelling and applying the butter so often that I am out of it before I can even use it as a regular body butter or other products that I would have liked to incorporate it in! Mind you, it is beyond divine on its own so I will have to just get WAY more and leave it as ! Wonderful quality product.

Don't Let the OOB Whiff Fool You!
Let me first say that I'm basically NOT the floral scent kinda girl. I mainly purchased this butter for its stated properties for my products and the fact that there were so many rave reviews helped to seal the deal for purchase. This was one of several butters that I got and I have to say that I will be buying more long before I run out of it! I wasn't impressed when I first smelled it out of the container. I blended this butter with several other non scented butters along with other exotic oils and ingredients in a new anti aging formula that I'm working on. Well, I quickly found that the formula isn't suitable for my face, BUT when I made a few adjustments and turned the mixture into a body butter and lotion MAN!!!! Did I have a winner! I let the products marinate during my shower time and opened my new 10 oz. body custard (that's what I call my body butter) and the heavenly scent made my mouth drop and I couldn't believe how wonderful the scent was! Remember now, I'm not the floral lover! Oh yeah, I added a little amber F.O. along with a splash of ruby red grapefruit F.O. to the blend and I tell you I almost couldn't sleep because I all I could do was sniff myself ALL evening! I also made a Monoi butter lotion and I tell you this stuff is great without mixing it with anything else! Okay, I'm going to stop writing now, but I just had to tell you how much I appreciate and enjoy this product! It's a soft exotic scent that can stand alone or be used with other scents. I'm a fan of Camden-Grey's Monoi butter as well as their other quality products! Do yourself a favor and give it a try.

Love, Love, LOVE this butter
It has the best scent. I simply can't describe it. To top it off, the scent lasted all day long. Literally from sun up to sun down. Simply can't say enough. A little goes a long way!
