Monoi de Tahiti – Best Products is the second part of my home spa mini-series, as it ties in beautifully with the self-care and relaxation theme. Also, I have tested at home all the products presented in this review, so let me share with you everything that I have discovered.

Monoi de Tahiti – What is it?

Firstly, Monoi de Tahiti is a perfumed oil made by infusing coconut oil with Tahitian gardenias. So it has the benefits of coconut oil, alongside the unique perfume of Tahitian gardenia, also known as tiaré flower. The word “monoï” means “scented oil“.

Secondly, Monoi de Tahiti is my current favorite scent. I have discovered it this year while searching for a birthday present for myself. I knew I wanted a body milk and shower gel set from La Maison du Savon de Marseilles. But I went there to buy some products with donkey milk. However, I was lucky enough to discover the Monoi de Tahiti products, and I immediately fell in love with them.

Today I will compare the SEPHORA Monoi Shower Gel and Monoi Body Milk with the Maison du Savon de Marseilles Monoi Shower Gel and Monoi Body Milk.

Having a home spa night is my favorite way of relaxing after a long day. I love this ritual so much that I get excited about it days ahead.

I have centered this home spa routine around a bubble bath. That is because it is winter here in Romania, so what could be cozier than a hot bath? Now, seriously, let us know in the comments. We are all looking for more ways to relax and feel nice and cozy.

Home Spa Benefits

1. A hot bath relaxes you.

It reduces stress levels and relaxes your muscles. Moreover, the simple act of cleaning your body will help you wash away the day’s worries and troubles. It is the perfect moment to disconnect from the outside and come back to yourself.

2. You get similar benefits as with a premium spa session, but for a lot cheaper.

Great news! You don’t have to spend a lot of money on spa treatments when you can create a similar experience at home. All it takes is a little preparation and the right mindset.

Put away your phone, say “see you later” to your significant other, gather your favorite bath products and you are now ready for your home spa experience.

3. You spend some time with yourself.

It is very important to allow yourself the time to do some things just for yourself. Not because someone else has asked you to. Not to accomplish a goal. But just because you want to do something nice for yourself.

Not everything you do must have a productive outcome. It is OK to just relax and breathe from time to time.
