"Kauai is a magical place. Called The Garden Island, the botanical diversity nearly assaults the senses (well, a New Yorker’s senses, anyway). It’s also home, on the West side of the island, to Monsanto headquarters, rendering this idyllic haven a kind of crucible of light and dark forces.
Doug is a former East Coaster who moved to Kauai to heal. And heal he did, with the help of plants from his Kauai backyard. Since then, he runs Kauai Farmacy, a medicinal herb farm that honors the land and its bounty, empowering the conscious farming movement.
I had the pleasure of visiting his farm where they speak to plants and harvest them with such care and passion, it’s become nearly impossible for me to drink heat-dried, stale tea bags ever since!
Their teas are beyond organic, hand picked, and low temp dehydrated. My faves are Women’s Wellness and Puritea which I drink after plane travel."
