NONI – The All Everything MEDICINE

 

 

It was over 10 years ago now that Genna and I began wild-harvesting Noni Leaves and crafting tea from this most potent all-everything medicine. We would go on jungle hikes to waterfalls, white sand beaches and jungle homes to pick the kindest of leaves. There was this one Noni tree in Moloa’a Bay that was so robust, abundant and giving; and a dreamy waterfall hike in Kilauea that would allow us to fill backpacks with the darkest of green Noni leaves; and a beautiful zone down by Anini Beach that was always lush with rich, healthy leaves and so easy to access on a whim. We soon began making tea with the Noni Leaves, and started selling it at the farmers market and in local Kauai health food stores. We were having so much fun wild-harvesting and crafting Noni Leaf tea, and were so grateful to be able to use this plant to heal, and provide this beautiful healing medicine to other people.Drinking Noni Leaf Tea became our personal gateway to true plant medicine (Kauai style) and we truly believed it had the potency, abundance, and balance to heal the world.

How Herbal Tea Changed My Life

Doug Wolkon, owner of Kauai Farmacy shares his personal healing journey drinking fresh Kauai-grown herbal tea.

The compounded effects were beginning to show. My neck and waist were both inflamed and numb. I desperately needed an interceptor.

ONE WOMAN’S TESTIMONIAL

SIX MONTHS LATER

With countless individuals visiting our boutique, herb farm daily, it is always a wonder what resonates most with them after they move on from their visit here.

A wooden sign situated on the gate exiting our farm reads “A Hui Hou Kākou”. In Hawaiian this means, “until we meet again”. What a gift it would be to meet all our visitors again after they have had a chance to use our herbs for a stretch of time;  finding out how the gardens impacted them, and gaining insight into how the herbs are performing for them as they progress on their own unique healing journeys.

Our Seasonal Small Batch Offering

Go with the flow. This has been an age-old testament to flexibility and willpower when it comes to quenching our fabricated expectations. We are conditioned to believe that everything we eat, the electricity we consume, the material items we purchase, the place that we call home, and even the very relationships we engage in will be ever-lasting. In our most comfortable state, we are tempted to believe that these things will always be readily available as the calendar of life carries on.
