We collaborate directly with local farmers to source the most potent and fresh ingredients available from across the Hawaiian Islands, and are honored to support Hawaii's growing agricultural community.
We believe that what you wear on your body every day should be as nutritive as the food you eat, and therefore work only with healing botanicals that are actively beneficial for your entire being.
Every aspect of our solar-powered operation is designed for minimal environmental impact, as the preciousness of our surroundings is always front of mind. We strive to be a zero waste business.
Our packaging is chosen to leave the smallest possible footprint. We serve Elixirs in recyclable tins, glass & compostable tubes. Our labels are recycled and we ship plastic-free with sustainable materials.
