SOMEWHERE UNDER THE RAINBOW

This morning the miracle of rays of Hawai’ian sunshine kissed the misty rain over Kauai Farmacy’s front pasture.

This is the Ecosystem in which our herbs thrive, and why our plant medicine is exceptionally balanced. Here on the North Shore of Kauai, the air, light and water are in equilibrium. The land in which our herbs abound is situated between the mountain range and the clear waters of the Pacific Ocean, and is surrounded by the Kilauea Stream; a water passageway for the cascading waterfalls to exit to our ocean’s edge. The herbal plants drink up, breath in, and bath themselves in these living elements. When plants are cultivated in a balanced environment and touched by loving hands, they become that which surrounds and nourishes them. In turn, we then consume the vitamins and minerals that these plants offer, becoming that same air, light and water.

Like plants, we are a product of our environment and experiences. We thrive when our air, light and water are all in balance. When we integrate balanced herbs into our lifestyle, every aspect of our colorful lives shines just a little brighter. We begin to feel more alive. Our environment; our breath; our hydration; our nutrition; & our relationships all fall into synchronicity and rhythm, contributing to our overall well-being.

Herbs transfer their consciousness to our every cell; reawakening dormancy within our bodies; recapturing strength from within; and rejuvenating our own consciousness, so that we can make healthy choices and practice daily rituals that serve and nourish us.

From our Vitalitea to our Green Energy Superfood powder; from our land to your cups; from nature’s elements to the living collection of particles that we are; may we all enjoy the full spectrum of health and healthy lifestyle practices that integrate Kauai Farmacy herbs from the land of abundant rainbows.

In the native Hawai’ian language, rainbows are known as Anuenue.

Ānuenue – “āh-noo-weh-noo-weh” Double Rainbow

The meaning of the double rainbow

What a way to start the morning! In Hawaii, these full spectrum sightings are called Ānuenue – “āh-noo-weh-noo-weh”. With abundant sunlight and falling water here in Kauai, these beautiful arcs of bent light abound. I feel so invigorated with each sighting. Some believe, the double rainbow, with its colors reflected in reverse, is a sign of good luck to come. If you look closely, you can see the double bow faintly to the left of the beaming rainbow.
