The Kukui Nut Tree has a lot of cultural significance here in Hawai'i, and was thought to be one of many "canoe plants" brought to the islands by early Polynesian settlers. Also called the candlenut tree, this plant is often associated with light and enlightenment. This is because in Old Hawai'i, these nuts were burned to provide light, and the oil was also extracted from the nuts to burn in stone lamps.

I am still just starting to use. I wanted it to help with sleep. I have been using along with Guaiacwood to fall back to sleep and it has been lovely and effective.
I love this oil. Nice very faint fragrance. Absorbs quickly and your skin feels so smooth. Love it! I'll be getting more. I think my sister took it home with her. She really loved it too.
