Hand-Harvesting Loose Leaf Herbs

We artisanally craft & hand-harvest our loose leaf herbs, as though we are making tea from our own backyard garden. It’s the only way!

Our super diverse gardens create healthy soil with a unique compilation of dense vitamins & minerals. This diversification also creates a symbiotic and powerful immune system that lends itself to closed-loop, organic, permaculture gardening; as opposed to more machine oriented, mono-cropped, chemical farming & mono-cultured soil, such as from planting rows and rows of the same plants for hundreds or even thousands of acres.

This Cranberry Hibiscus is one of the eighty plus herbal plants that have derived from this close-loop diverse gardening system. We add this sweet & sour, antioxidant & vitamin C-rich, immune-boosting herb to our Children’s Wellness & Women’s Wellness tea blends.

You can enjoy our Hibiscus Iced Tea exclusively at the Hanalei Bread Company & JO2 Restuarant.

Hand-harvesting plant medicine with utmost care,

Yarrow: Blood Toning Plant

YARROW infants. We love welcoming new life into virgin Kauai Farmacy soil beds. This incredible blood toning plant can truly be lifesaving, especially for those in need of blood clotting; and/or experiencing internal hemorrhaging. These remarkable star-burst shaped younglings will grow up into a fluffy green bed of plant medicine ready to balance your blood’s viscosity. That’s right. Yarrow has the power to thin your blood when your blood pressure is high, and thicken or clot it when your blood is too thin. This plant is highly effective for women during their monthly moon cycles and post pregnancy for Mama’s on their postnatal healing journey.

This freshly planted garden bed of Yarrow will grow up and make its way into our WOMEN’S WELLNESS TEA. This plant has been beyond useful for all our on-farm injuries, cuts, scrapes and boo-boos. We are grateful for Yarrow’s brilliant healing capabilities! We believe you will be to. Mahalo to the power plant YARROW!

With humble gratitude,

When Life Gives You Lemons

When life gives you lemons, give thanks. These alkalizing fruits create balance in our body’s PH, which can be quite erratic in our modern lifestyles. Aside from being a pure & delicious approach to boosting metabolic activity, by integrating lemon into your daily diet, you are also enabling other important vitamins and minerals to be more easily absorbed into your body; thus heightening organ function and aiding in their optimal performance. ⠀

Our lemon rinds are cured raw in our solar dehydrators, and inoculated into some of our herbal blends like our Puritea Cleanse Powder, and Women’s Wellness Tea.⠀

Aside from all the health benefits the lemon rinds offer, they are also in part responsible for making our medicinal teas taste delicious. This basket of lemons will be squeezed for the Kauai Farmacy team to enjoy as a refreshment; and the rinds will be making their way into the next herbal tea batch. Lucky for us all!

MORINGA, The Herbal Superfood

MORINGA oleifera: Indigenous to India and renown in parts of the world such as the Philippines and Africa as a superfood; this tree with its small oval-leaf clustered-sprigs is one of the rare foods that provide us with all the essential Amino acids we need to survive. Amino acids are responsible for new cellular growth. Loaded with vitamins and minerals like vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, and C, iron, manganese, copper, phosphorous, magnesium and zinc, it is a smart choice to add Moringa to everyone’s diet.
 
MoringaIn India and Himalayan medicine, Moringa has been used as a remedy for hundreds of different dis-eases for thousands of years.
And get this; when the Moringa leaves are cured raw in our solar dehydrators, their vitamin and mineral content becomes more concentrated and become even more nourishing. For example, according to the Imagine Rural Development Initiative, Moringa leaves when dried have twenty-five times the iron of spinach – and instead of three times the potassium of bananas in its fresh-produce state, it is more like fifteen times that of bananas; four times more protein than eggs; ten times more vitamin A than carrots; and seventeen times more calcium than milk.
 
Green Energy PuckGrown in volcanic-rich organic soil, hand-harvested, and prepared by loving artisans, this nutritious herb makes its way into our Kauai Farmacy Women’s Wellness tea, Buzz Chew, and Green Energy powder.
