NAIKELA BOTANICALS

Over the holidays I am spending time in Hawaii. During my visits to the North Shore to watch surfers surf the spectacular 20-30 foot waves I stopped by food trucks for lunch. The interesting thing about food trucks is they use fresh food, unlike restaurants or cafes that may be using frozen ingredients. The three I stopped at all used fresh ingredients and served marvelous food at very reasonable prices.

I also stopped by Naikela Botanicals. They grow, produce and sell superfood teas containing a wide variety of botanical powders based with ingredients grown and dried on a chemical-free farm site at Makalani, a 130-acre agriculture property on Kauai’s North Shore that practices sustainability. 

Naikela Botanicals is a family-owned and operated company helmed by Aaron Moeller, a seasoned farmer and blend master. Aaron shares the benefits of living a practical holistic lifestyle with his wife Shannon (the brand’s creative designer) and island-born daughters, Naia and Akela, who inspired the company’s name.

Inside every container of Naikela Botanicals is a master blend of handcrafted plant powder. The superfood teas

Naikela’s Garden Isle Mint is a sweet and minty fresh superfood tea powder with adaptogenic powers. The delicious formula calms and relaxes while sharpening your mind. 

Garden Isle Mint makes a delicious hot or cold tea (kids love it too!), or add it to smoothies, sprinkle on toast, yogurt, acai bowls or bake into desserts.

MEET THE ‘HEALTHY BABY’ MAMAS

Healthy Baby Hawaii is owned by two Kailua mamas, Aly Akina and Nicole Dodson. We met in 2008 working in the food industry and quickly became

great friends. A few years later, we happened to settle down and start our families around the same time. Once our babies reached the “solids” age, we both decided to make their foods from home with fresher ingredients rather than buy shelved, processed baby foods. But there were times when we couldn’t always have food prepared and would have to get a “quick fix” from the store. Shelved baby food tends to have long expiration dates. has been cooked at high temperatures (basically all that’s left is fiber and no nutrition), and honestly just smells and tastes funny. We wanted better options and resources for fresher, healthier foods “quicker” alternatives. So we did our research and found nothing of the sort. And here we are!

We want busy parents to feel confident that the food they are feeding their keiki is fresh, organic and preservative-free – unlike their store-bought counterparts. Parenting can be challenging enough. let us, Healthy Baby Hawaii, give you peace of mind by providing your keiki with the very best delivered straight to your door!
