Puakenikeni History in Hawai'i
Approximately 9,000 new species of flowering plants were introduced to Hawaiʻi from all over the world during the over two centuries since ‘Contact’ (1778.) Some, including puakenikeni quickly became favorites of island residents and staples of the lei industry. (CTAHR). Lei makers down on the Honolulu docks selling lei during the “Steamer Days” or “Boat Days” (late-1800s to mid-1900s) would string the puakenikeni into fragrant lei. Each flower (“pua”) cost a dime (kenikeni means dime, ten cents,) hence the name “ten-cent flower.” (Pukui, Neal, Agroforestry; totakeresponsibility.blogspot.com)
Why Hawaii Peeps?
Hawaii Peeps Hydrosols are 100% pure with no added preservatives or fragrances. Our hydrosols are made from wildcraft and organically grown botanicals from the island of Kaua'i and steam-distilled from purified Hawaiian waters. These are specifically distilled for hydrosols and not as a biproduct of the essential oil making process. We make these concentrated, in small batches with aloha. Fragrances can vary, season to season, batch to batch. Bottles are sterilized with organic alcohol.
Our hydrosols can last up to two years if stored properly (in cool space or refrigerator), though we recommend using them within six months of purchase. Refills available locally on Kaua'i. DM us on IG.
Puakenikeni is seasonal, if we're out of stock check back soon!

Bhavana in Kauai –
This aroma is so beautiful I can’t describe in words. A refreshing
floral spray, especially in summer. I love to mist it around my head and on my face. It takes a minute for the scent to kick in, once the top note dissipates. I wish it was in a bigger bottle because I am going through it fast! I will take advantage of the Hawaii Peeps recycle program, bring in my empty bottle for a refill.
