Medicine at your feet. Passiflora incarnate, Passion flowers laying on a bed of Self-Heal. These vibrant flowers climb gracefully along our garden fence. It is almost impossible to walk by them without pausing to appreciate their beauty and mystique; and a conversation often follows about its beauty and potency to support restorative sleep and muscle relaxation. The Passion Flower is considered to be one of the best sedatives available in the West; it also grows prolifically here on Kauai, in Hawaii. Plant it on a fence or a post and watch it take over.
The Passion Flower is also called Lilikoi in Hawaiian. This herb is known for its ability to relax muscles and calm the nervous system; making the Passion flower an excellent sleep aid, and an active ingredient in our Tranquility blend.
Additionally, the plant acts as an antispasmodic, and helps to relieve nerve pain, painful menses, and headaches.

This over-sized passion fruit contains a compound called passiflorine and has been used for centuries for reducing anxiety, acting as a sedative, reversing hypertension, relieving pain, and combating insomnia. We use the passion flower along with Valerian, another potent herbal inducer of drowsiness, in our Tranquility tea because of the incredible calming attributes on the nervous system.
Our Tranquility tea: A delicious medium-bodied, calming infusion for general muscle relaxation and balancing the nervous system, can be found at www.KauaiFarmacy.com
Giant Lilikoi was first introduced into Hawaii in 1880, and has been historically known to help with: Asthma; whooping cough; bronchitis; stomach issues such as intestinal worms & dysentery; treating scurvy; and in repelling toxins from the lower intestines. A GIANT relief for many!
