‘Ulu + Māmaki Herbal Tea
Both ‘ulu and māmaki play an important part in Hawaiian culture. Māmaki is endemic to Hawaiʻi, which means it’s found here and nowhere else in the world. It was traditionally used for good health and overall well being, and some people experience a calming effect after drinking māmaki herbal tea.
ʻUlu is a “canoe crop” introduced by the first Polynesian settlers to these islands centuries ago. It is a practical and spiritual crop that appears throughout Hawaiian lore, speaking to its cultural significance. Like māmaki, ʻulu herbal tea is known to have calming properties.

History of lauhala
Ancient Hawaiians wove leaves of the hala tree (indigenous pandanus) for necessities big and small—from mats and pillows to roof thatching and canoe sails. Every Hawaiian family had at least one weaver skilled in creating items ranging from practical to true masterpieces, and our ʻohana was no different.
Modern artisans are keeping this tradition alive. Today these delicate yet sturdy leaves are crafted into accessories including hats, jewelry, and home goods.
