Kawakawa, according to my people, is a heal all and can cure everything and anything from a toothache to gonorrhea. I myself would like to know who found the cure for the latter. We went to our spot today to pick the leaves. They're pretty abundant there. My Mum, ever the green thumb, pulled out a small plant from the ground and I've planted it in a pot next to my grape (that looks like it's dying) to see what happens. An Aunty tried to grow kawakawa here, but it never took off so I'm keeping my fingers crossed with mine.
Mitchy has been using kawakawa cream on Avi's face and her skin has changed. That I can see with my own eyes. She told a story today about kawakawa healing a man with cancer. I've heard stories from Aunties of it being a soother when applied to aching joints.
Hubs and Nesas picked two bags worth and I bought them home and dried them, made kawakawa water, started an infusion with EVOO and made a beverage with lemons.
Counting on the fact that it's a cure all, if I don't look like Beyonce in a few months I'm recalling that claim and giving kawakawa a bad review in the Maori Medicine dictionary .. if there is one.
If only I knew someone with gonorrhea.
