My overall take out of these three days are definitely the medicines. I really found interest in the medicines because we could make so much use and healing. From lemon grass to none trees to even dirt. My favorite medicine is Alai. I had so many questions to ask aunty kii. Alai is basically red dirt clay we could use it for blood pressure to stopping very bad wounds to stop bleeding. Aunty kid said a whole process on how to prepare it to very fine paste to pack wounds also to put in gel caps to consume. Overall I had really fun this past three days with aunty kid and I would love to learn a lot more.

Like in the beginning it was said we needed to make connections and have relationships not only with the people around us but also with our Aina. There are so many variations and so much more that goes into every plant that you would use to heal any type of sickness or cuts, broken bones, bruises. You always have to have good intensions, clean and positive state of mind. This type of work is definitely something not everyone can do, due to having be consistent and diligent. I definitely am very interested in learning just more about the uses of the different plants, I am very aware that we need to take very good care of our bodies and…
