The Fragrance: Mildly nutty, fresh, creamy, sweet and soft
The Story: Close your eyes and think of Hawaii: we are pretty certain your image includes coconut trees swaying over white sandy beaches lapped by blue waves! Coconut trees were absolutely vital to ancient Polynesians as building material, food, drink, and medicine. Anty Kalei writes “In ancient Hawaiian tradition, a coconut was planted when a child was born. A he’e, octopus, was often placed in the bottom of the hole where the coconut was to be planted. Besides being used as fertilizer, legend was that the octopus would help the tree’s roots spread and grip the soil; to hold firm, even through windy storms.” Read more in Anty Kalei’s blog, Voyaging Plants of Ancient Hawaiians: Niu (Coconut)
Ingredient Spotlight: The Loofah sponge is composed of slightly rough fibers that exfoliate your skin. Using a loofah eliminates dead cells that will give you smooth, youthful, and glowing skin.
