FAVORITE INGREDIENT TO USE: Tulsi (holy basil)! It's what we use as the base in all the botanical superfood tea blends. We love the herb's antiviral phytonutrients!
FAVORITE WAY TO USE THE TEA POWDERS: We love making Superfood Tea Lattes! Boil a cup of hot water, add 1/4 or 1/2 teaspoon into the hot water and stir. Then add milk of choice and honey. It's so delicious! The powder is super fine and blends immediately into water.
PERSONAL FAVORITE PRODUCT: I need Wahine everyday! It's a delicious peppermint chocolate blend with powerful benefits: All your essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phytonutrients, adapotgens and super alkalizing! It's super antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-parasidic, anti-inflammatory, antiviral! I've personally noticed a happy mood boost and hormone balance by less PMS, better sleep and less daily fatigue!
LOCAL BUSINESSES YOU WORK WITH: We give back 50% to Makanalani Kids House! It's a beautiful home housing guests of up to 50 people at a time. It's a retreat for kid groups to come and enjoy the beauty of growth, love, encouragement and nature.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT HAWAII?: I love its culture! I love its beauty! I love its seclusion! We love everything about Hawaii! It's a lush tropical oasis we hope to steward for future generations. The name Naikela comes from our two daughters' Hawaiian names Nai'a and Akela. We created our company with hearts that desire to sustain their future—organically sowing love into every plant we grow and every tin we fill!
