Aloha and greetings from the Island of Hawai'i! Thank you for visiting my website and sharing in my dream. Hawai'i is a dream destination for people of all walks of life everywhere. It represents an island of health in a sea of trouble; it has a mystical quality which calms this trouble, giving us permission to relax and let go of modern worry and return to primal ancient serenity.
Over the last 30 years, I have partnered with respected essential oil experts to source the finest and purest essential oils available. Slowly and meticulously I have developed a line of products customers fall in love with.
My primary focus is to extend the Hawaiian Sandalwood products to the world and find new ways to deliver the benefits of Hawaiian Coffee Fruit through skincare products.
A world renowned and deeply loved mother, wife, teacher, and healer, Aunty Margaret taught us to “empty your heart, before the sun goes down.” Don’t take the hewa (your) troubles into the night or the next day. Let go and give them to the Divine.

Called Nai'a in Hawaiian, the Spinner Dolphin represents an ancient seafaring friend of man, our protector at sea, who's playful, childlike innocence with mischievous enthusiasm symbolizes for many the most joyful experience of health.
Sailing to Hawai'i is a dream which I fulfilled in March, 1985. After a harrowing passage, and providential arrival, our senses were keen for the anticipation of landfall. The storm which threatened to destroy us, pushed us along the sea road rounding South Point, then up the Kona coast to refuge in Kealakekua Bay.
Aunty Eleanor Makita named and blessed "Hana Nai’a". The Hawaiian language has musical vibrations and the words are poetic in their meaning. In this context Hana means ʻtimeless, great love from the Heartʻ, and Naiʻa ʻthe Dolphinʻ. Together it expresses timeless love from the heart for the Hawaiian spinner dolphin.

The greeting we were given by the scores of spinner dolphins playing in the bow wake and otherwise escorting us the entire last leg of our journey was the most profound welcome in my life. All the island scents filled our breath and the moist air from the storm felt recharged with white ginger, plumeria, jasmine, tuberose, mango, even the domestic smells of coffee and good cooking. These welcome aromatic greetings made a profound effect upon one so deprived during passage. I am so grateful to be on the Big Island safely.
Currently I am working closely with our friends and neighbors on the Big Island at Haloa Aina (http://haloaaina.com/) and their Sandalwood reforestation project. Haloa Aina is a native Hawaiian forestry and education organization committed to economic prosperity and environmental responsibility being guided by cultural values for a more sustainable Hawaii.
