The Miracle Oil:  Kukui Nut Oil has been used for centuries in Hawaii to heal and protect the skin from the elements, creating a protective barrier against harsh outdoor weather (sun, wind, and cold). Kukui Nut Oil comes from the Kukui tree, Hawaii's state tree. Our Kukui Nut Nourishing Oil soothes and softens the skin, hair, and nails and is extra-nourishing for dry or sunburned skin. Use directly or as a massage or bath oil—4.5 oz.

The Fragrance: Like being bundled up in front of a campfire, stargazing on Mt Haleakala--a subtle, nutty aroma with a dash of vanilla that warms your body, mind, and spirit.

The Story: Anty Kalei says, "The official tree of the state of Hawai'i, the Kukui tree, is easy to spot in our tropical rain forest. Its pale green-silver leaves stand out against the rest of the dark foliage. Known to grow over 50 feet in height, the Kukui tree is dotted with small white flowers and clumps of green pods the size of golf balls, which contain the actual kukui nut when open. Medicinally, the Kukui plant has many uses when adequately prepared by a Kāhuna Lā’au Lapa'au (Hawaiian priest of medicine). At Island Essence, we have taken the oil of the Kukui Nut to use as a wonderful massage oil or as a moisturizing addition to a bath. It is also great for nails, as an aftershave and moisturizer for those extra dry days." See more on the Kukui Tree and its miraculous nut oil on Anty Kalei's Blog, "Anty Kalei Talks Story—Hawaii's Tree of Light."
