Rachel Hunter's mother Janeen Phillips has lost her battle to cancer.

Hunter has taken to social media to pay tribute to her mother, honouring the "realm of magic that exists in and around her."

"At 9pm Last Night with a complete circle of love sitting beside her, Jacqui, Myself, Liam & Renee, comforted Mum in her last breaths," Hunter wrote.

"The beauty that surrounded that moment was a moment only she could have created. Yes there was so much pain in her last 18 months, but we will never forget the force of beauty, fire, protectiveness, empathy, strength, and of course the realm of magic that exists in and around her.

"We will see you soon our love. Every time I look at nature you will exist. Mother Nature exists forever and so do you. Can't thank you everyone for love and support you have given me. So many of us go through this."

Hunter has shared a number of heart-warming moments throughout Phillips' battle with the "hideous disease".
