Oh, that's great, lorig713. I think there's a Bath and Body Works in the mall.

Is True Blue pure Monoi?.....is that important, or not?

Thanks for your help.

So far, I have only been able to find true monoi oil online, and in one store in Hawaii. Real monoi oil is made from fractionated coconut oil that is scented with flowers. So far, I have only been able to find monoi oil that is mostly almond oil with a bit of coconut oil and scent. I have some of this oil from the Body Shop. It smells nice, but it's not at nice as real monoi oil, in my view.

I would be interested to know if Bath and Body Works has real monoi oil?

They have a monoi oil at the Body Shop too, but I'm not sure if it has other ingredients also.

Shell, it will be awhile before I get to a Body Shop, but when I do, I'll post that information. I was afraid that pure momoi oil was not going to be available in stores :(

What the Body Shop calls monoi oil is not monoi oil. It's scented almond oil. It does smell good, but doesn't act like real monoi oil. I can't answer for Bath and Body Works, but next time I'm near one, I'll check the ingredients list and post it. I have one bottle of the real thing, and it's quite different from my bottle of Monoi Oil from the Body Shop.

I am seriously considering ordering some directly from the Monoi people.

It has a number of oils in it actually. It is light and very little fragrance. I'm not a monoi oil expert, I just know it's been very kind to my hair.

Good luck! :flower:

I just ordered some monoi oil, so I will report back, at least in my journal.
