Maile Rainforest Gift Collection in a Hawaiian Lauhala Basket
Immerse yourself in the lush rainforest of Maui. Our Maile Collection will transport you to the freshest and most exotic part of Hawaii.
The Collection: The Maile Rainforest Collection is based on the beautifully unique and fresh house fragrance added to custom treatments that we supply to premier Hawaiian spas. This package includes our 8oz. Creme, Bath Crystals, Shea Butter Soap, Bath & Body Oil and a Travel Candle, all presented in a traditional Hawaiian Lahaula gift basket.
The Lauhala Gift Basket: In Old Hawaii, the leaves or "lau" were handwoven to create functional items such as hats, canoe sails, mats and baskets. Today, Hawaiians still enjoy using lauhala baskets for gift giving.
The Fragrance: Clean, fresh, woodsy, with a pure, slightly sweet, green fragrance - the unique, intoxicating smell of a Hawaiian rainforest is treasured equally by both women and men.
The Story: The rarest Hawaiian lei is not made with flowers, but is made with maile leaves from the vine Alyxia stellata. Maile is only found deep in the rainforests of Hawaii. Although worn by commoners and royalty alike, Maile was also the chosen sacrificial offering to the goddess of hula, Laka. Hawaiians believed Maile would offer protection, bestow a natural perfume, bring good luck, treat cuts and promote good rest when put under a pillow.
Gift Card: Upon Request, we are happy to include a complimentary card. Handwritten with Aloha. Personalize the message in the notes section of your order.
Sending to a Friend: We are happy to send any gift(s) directly to the recipient, but each gift needs to be a separate order so the correct shipping and shipping details are applied. There will be no pricing enclosed with the gift--just a packing slip (no prices).
Additional Gift Option: To make this gift even more special, consider adding a Kukui Nut Lei to this basket. This is a traditional style lei, often worn at weddings and during dance performances--and worn by both men and women. Simply add the Kukui Nut Lei to your order (only $9.50) and on checkout in the notes section, ask us to add to the basket contents.
