Lolo Mohokoi / Tevunga (Coconut, Ylang Ylang & Red Ginger leaves)

Please be advised that this current batch is mostly Tevunga

Our Traditional Tongan oil (Lolo Tonga) is made of Virgin coconut oil (Lolo Niu) and infused with a variety of botanical flowers and plants such as Mohokoi (Ylang Ylang) & Tevunga (Red Ginger Leaves). This Tongan oil has a  very unique and distinct botanical scent that is very different from other Polynesian oils. Ylang Ylang is known to maintain the skin's oil production and keeps it well nourished while the Red Ginger leaves helps preserve the skin's collagen which is great for an anti-ageing treatment. The unique blend of Coconut oil, Mohokoi (Ylang Ylang) & Tevunga (Red Ginger Lily) also releases out a subtle ginger like aroma which many Tongans adore. This oil also promotes hydrating benefits for dry skin conditions such as eczema and leaves your skin feeling smooth and moisturised. Our oils absorbs into the skin very quickly and hydrates the driest skin. 



Lolo Feta'u & Tuitui (Coconut / Tamanu / Candlenut) 

Lolo Feta'u (Tamanu oil) helps boost collagen, has healing wound abilities and reduces scars. Lolo Tuitui (Candlenut oil)  is a great body moisturiser, it helps reduce skin inflammation and promotes growth of healthy new skin. Our ancestors also used to chew the candlenuts along with other herbal plants to create a natural body scrub. Lolo Feta'u and Tuitui are great oils for all round skin and hair care.

This is a nut oil so please patch test first.
