Local Herbal Tea Farm Kaua‘i Farmacy Will Spice Up Your Beauty Routine

MEET YOUR NEW BEAUTY SALVE-ATION.

HONOLULU MAGAZINE

We love supporting small businesses that emphasize organic, locally grown products. So when Kaua‘i Farmacy sent us some of its all-natural, Kaua‘i-made skincare items to try, we couldn’t resist.

Located in Kīlauea, the tea farm is the love child of East Coast transplants Doug and Genna Wolkon, who bought 4 lush acres back in 2010, intent on creating healing herbal products. Now, along with teas, spices and tinctures, the Wolkons are brewing up botanical beauty products made using organic plants and herbs.

So far, their foray into skincare has yielded two products—the Comfrey Salve and the Botanical Body Butter. Made with organic coconut oil, local beeswax and comfrey grown on their farm, the Comfrey Salve soothes even the tensest of sore muscles. After using it for a week on my aching shoulders, I can attest that it nicely relieved tension.

Supercharged with organic coconut oil, local beeswax, cacao, turmeric, noni, tea tree and gotu kola, the Body Butter is packed with all-natural goodness. After washing my face, patting dry and applying, this cocoa-scented butter restored moisture to my skin and left it feeling smooth and fresh.

Kaua‘i Farmacy’s lineup of beauty products is seasonal and changes depending on the availability of ingredients. We’re looking forward to the springtime Healing Beauty Balm, a calendula-based formula beloved for its honey scent and soothing properties.

Pouring Comfrey Salve

Pouring molten Comfrey Salve batch with care and precision. This plant mixture is a compilation of Comfrey root, Comfrey leaf, coconut oil, and Kauai beeswax.

Comfrey is renown for its bone, ligament, and tendon Restorative properties, as it contains a compound called allantoin that has cellular regenerative abilities.

We use Comfrey Salve on everything from old nagging ailments to fresh injuries, as well as for daily foot and body massage.

High Performance Comfrey Salve for bones and muscles

Dan, the life regenerator and Doug, owner of Kauai Farmacy introduce a new Comfrey Salve. The Comfrey plant is renown by the ancients as “knit-bone” or the “warrior plant” because of its strong history of helping to rejuvenate bones, muscles, and ligaments. Don’t miss the end of the video where Doug demonstrates how to massage this topical healing salve onto his wife, Genna.

Excellent for therapeutic massage or applied topically for daily body maintenance and performance, this salve is prepared in small batches directly from the very gardens Doug, Dan and gardener Kerr are filming in.
