Mānuka Hinu 🌿
Here is my second hinu 'cooking'. Mānuka and grapeseed oil, which I've named - TE MANA ✊🏾 The spiritual space I was in when making this was TŪ MEKE - you HAD to be there! 💞
An infusion of leaves was used to drink to treat kidney and bladder complaints, and to reduce fever in tamariki.
A decoction of the bark was another cure for diarhoea and dysentry.
My intention of this cooking of Mānuka hinu is so that when it is ready, I will use the hinu to make some pani, which is most effective for healing opem wounds, skin rashes, bruises, eczema and other kiri issues, due to it's awesome antiseptic properties! 😁
Nö Grenada North te whakapapa ö ēnei Mānuka!
Kawakawa Hinu 🍀
I te tīmatanga, me tuku atu mö te Karakia.
And then Space shifted,
And it was the syngergies
Between me and my Poutokomanawa, ka whakaingoātia
Tēnei hinu, ko Te Oranga ♎♒ as our intention is to Heal.
Nö Grenada North ēnei rau Kawakawa.
With our leaves left, paper bagged and pegged to start that drying process = PATIENCE.
"Āta hāere", (Ā-TA HĀ-E-RE!) With Rongoā Māori, comes with reflections... and that is the process of Te Oranga - Healing. "Te Ao Wairua, Te Ao Tūroa, Te Ao Mārama ē!
TĪHEI! MAURI ORA!" kapi with another!
