We're proud to present our newest oil … pure, wild crafted Kukui Nut

Thursday, June 2, 2011


The Kukui Tree was brought to the islands by early Polynesian settlers and has been used for generations in traditional Hawaiian healing. It is rich in Vitamins A and E as well as Oleic Acid (Omega 9), Linoleic Acid (Omega 6) and Alpha Lionlenic Acid (Omega 3). In addition, it is a powerful anti-oxidant.

It has the ability to deeply penetrate the skin while still allowing it to breath. Kukui Nut Oil will not clog the pores of the skin, but is excellent for moisture retention.

The benefits are numerous and it has been traditionally used for sunburn, windburn and dry skin. Hawaiian women have used it for years to enhance their tans and moisturize their skin. It is superb as massage oil and our wild crafted Kukui Nut Oil is superior to cosmetic grade quality.

Centuries ago Hawaiian men and women used the oil in their hair to give it sheen and today it is frequently used as an occasional super hydrating treatment for the hair. Heat the oil slightly and work it through the hair starting at the roots; leave on for at least 10 minutes or longer before washing and rinsing hair. The oil can also be used sparingly as a leave in conditioner.

It is believed that rubbing Kukui Nut Oil vigorously into the scalp can promote hair growth, but one glance at my picture proves I cannot attest to that claim!

Hawaiians have traditionally used Kukui Nut Oil as a treatment for acne and it works well reducing the appearance of acne scars.

Other uses for our wild crafted Kukui Nut Oil:
  • Can be used on babies with cradle cap
  • Add to a bath for additional hydration and nourishment
  • Help prevent stretch marks during pregnancy
  • Also helps lighten stretch marks for those already suffering with them
  • Put a few drops into your favorite shampoo or conditioner to treat over-processed, dry hair
Our oil is unscented but can be enhanced with one of our exclusive essential oil blends.

I look forward to your feedback on this exciting new product.


Best regards


We want to welcome a new employee to our ranks....

Wednesday, June 1, 2011


... Lindsey Barber will be joining us on June 6th.

This is a bit tongue in cheek as Lindsey has been with us for six years, but when she reports to work on the above mentioned date, it will be her first day as Mrs. Brian Barber. Lindsey was married on May 28th and my wife and I were honored to be among the attendees.

A lot of you know Lindsey well and you have quite possibly talked to her. She has been the backbone of our customer service department since 2005 starting out as a 17 year old high school senior in the mail order department. In the years that followed, she excelled at that position all the while attending college full time and earning her AA.

In 2008, she was promoted and took over the bookkeeping duties as well as many other functions. She still supervised the mail order room and was instrumental in new product development as well. And, she worked on her bachelor’s degree at the University of Central Florida which she attained in December of 2010.

Lindsey is now the Vice President for Absolutely Natural, Inc. and has been a key player in the growth AN has realized since 2008. Typical of Lindsey, a full time, very demanding job is not enough of a challenge for her and she is entering a master’s program this fall.

Actually, many of you have seen her and may not have known it. Lindsey graces the cover of our facials brochure and is also featured on collateral material at our stores in Kauai.

All of us at Absolutely Natural want to congratulate Lindsey and Brian and wish them health, happiness and prosperity during a long and fruitful marriage.

Best regards,
