Resembling tough shelled walnuts, the kukui nut is indigenous to Hawaii. Hundreds of years ago Hawaiians discovered that when the shells were removed from Kukui nuts, and the kernels lightly roasted, clear oil could be pressed out. This was an excellent penetrating oil that when smoothed on the skin soothed and softened sunburns and irritations. Today this oil is used in many skin care products and the kernels are used to make leis.
