It all begins with ʻāina.
Our process begins with source. Pono ingredients, quality recipes, and made with lots of aloha.
Inspired by ʻIke Kūpuna from our ʻOhana and Esteemed Researchers
Tūtū knows best is our motto. The wisdom our ancestors passed down to us took generations of observation, practice, and refinement. The same can be said about the scientific approach to proving effectiveness of medicine. At Leira Organics, we believe that the plants are also our teachers, and invite you to learn and grow with us!
This book is by Isabella Aiona Abbot is a huge inspiration for us!
