Alii Kula Lavender

Aliʻi Kula Lavender

When the Kingdom of Hawaii's monarchs  traveled to England and to other countries in Europe they would return to the islands with their favorite finds. Lavender was one of them. Nearly two hundred years later there are lavender farms that are flourishing on the slopes of Haleakala on the island of Maui. And thanks to the support of a special loan provided by First Hawaiian Bank through a program managed by OHA called the Malama Loan, Native Hawaiian entrepreneurs can follow their dreams and step outside the ordinary to start their own small businesses.  Alii Chang was able to create an oasis "up country" at his Ali'i Kula Lavender farm. They give tours, host picnics, sell lavender products, and more.  It is just sheer beauty up in Kula, Maui and the scent of all the lavender wafting through the crisp cool air is heaven on earth.  Their mantra is relax, rejuvenate, renew.  Continued good luck to Ali'i and his ohana in this New Year of the Rabbit. Life is Good.

    Aliʻi Chang is one of the most friendliest and hardworking business owners on Maui. Plus he truly loves Lavender and continues to do what does best. Keep it up AKL!

    Aloha & mahalo's for a fine short story.

    Gave out many gifts of Lavender in the form of fresh cut stems & buds this past summer that brought much joy to recipients & the therapeutic aromatic component is refreshing & one that picks the soul up! Try stuffing your pillow case with a bunch of fresh lavender & you'll see a big difference in attitude.

    A back massage using lavender oil is awesome & the fragrance thereafter makes so much good sense. Aroma therapy is a critical component in wellness along with macrobiotics & other related procedures.

    I enjoy the lavender spray too that instantly refreshes your home spaces making it extremely welcome to visitors & occupants.

    Goodluck to Mr. Chang & his fine examples!

    I wish someone could grow Pikake in bulk since the fragrance is out of this world!

    Malama Pono....Malama Kou Kino,
