The Kawakawa (Macropiper excelsum) plant is a significant part of traditional Māori medicine.  An infusion is made from the leaves or roots, and used for bladder problems, boils, bruises, to relieve pain or toothache, or as a general tonic.

Wild Harvested.

This herb is wild-harvested from private property. Wild harvested means we take what we need and no more, so the plants stay natural and healthy. 

 Traditional Uses

Improving energy levels, regulating female hormones

A general tonic, kawakawa is renowned for cleansing the kidneys and blood, ensuring your body can continue to operate optimally.
