Mahalo Means “Thank You”!

Home9Blog9Mahalo Means “Thank You”!
LeiHut Ohana

Mahalo is the Hawaiian word for “thank you.” Sometimes amidst all the stress that comes along with Thanksgiving week – the shopping, cooking, cleaning, socializing, etc. – we forget what the holiday is truly about. Coming together with those we love and taking time to express our appreciation, to say mahalo is what will bring us joy.

The LeiHut Ohana would like to show how thankful we are for our wonderful customers by sharing the fragrance of one of Hawaii’s most lovely flowers – the plumeria. Customers who place orders starting on Thanksgiving day through Cyber Monday will receive a free LeiHut plumeria scented air freshener as a token of our appreciation.

What other tropical fragrances would you like to see in LeiHut air fresheners in the future?

Flower Power!

Home9Blog9Flower Power!

The Hawaiian islands are famous for their bright and beautiful blossoms. Indigenous flowers, along with plants that were brought over from other lands, grow easily in the tropical climate. Here’s a quick guide to some of LeiHut’s favorite flowers:

Hibiscus- The official flower of Hawaii, this is one of the most iconic blooms of the islands. Hibiscus come in almost every color, though yellow hibiscus is the official color for the state. This flower is popular for fabric patterns on mens aloha shirts, swimsuits, and other tropical attire. Hibiscus are also frequently tucked behind the ear as a form of Hawaiian accessorizing. Foam replicas even make them fun to decorate dogs!

Hibiscus Hair Clip for Dogs

Plumeria – Plumeria grow on trees all over Hawaii. Each blossom carries an intoxicating scent. This lovely flower is often infused into body products and candles to create a sweet and feminine fragrance. Plumeria are also commonly used to string leis in Hawaii, but because they are so fragile they cannot be shipped outside of the state. Nonperishable plumeria lei are a great alternative to the real deal!

Plumeria Maui Sugar Scrub

Orchid – These flowers are not indigenous to Hawaii, but you’ll see them everywhere! Orchids are as hardy as they are gorgeous, which makes them an ideal flower for leis. They can be expertly sewn into spirals or simply strung into a single bloom pattern. Orchids are also a popular garnish on tropical drinks and alongside exquisite island cuisine.

Aloha Greetings

Home9Blog9Aloha Greetings

There’s something very special about receiving a hand written card in the mail. In a time when emails, Facebook messages, tweets and texts can fly back and forth between friends in an instant, their words and meaning are just as quickly forgotten. Luckily the holiday tradition of sending cards to the people we love continues to carry on year after year. Classic holiday cards decorated with winter scenes and red and green color combinations are nice, but nothing out of the ordinary. This year, why not add some tropical flare to your holiday greeting cards? Two of our LeiHut vendors make it easy.

Hawaiian Greeting Cards

Hawaiian Cards by Anne is owned and operated by artist Anne Wheelock on the island of Oahu. Inspired by Hawaii’s beautiful flora, Anne has been painting for 10 years. Card designs are printed from original acrylic paintings and featured on blank greeting cards. Most of the paintings are based on photographs taken by the artist. All of the photographs are taken in Hawaii, the materials for painting are purchased in Hawaii and the cards are printed in Hawaii – a truly Hawaiian product! One of her best sellers is the vibrant Birds of Paradise cards.

HOPA creates meaningful greeting cards that are printed with their signature Pure Aloha Oath. What is “Pure Aloha”? The simplest answer is: Pure Aloha is unconditional love – the most powerful force in the universe residing right within the heart of each and every one of us. The sunny yellow hearts that hug the spine of the card are sure to brighten anyone’s day.
