This week, meet Anuhea and Mari from My Aloha Post - a monthly care package subscription service sending you Hawaii experiences straight to your doorstep!
How did it all started? What motivated you to start your own brand?
Our company was born out of our love and appreciation for local crafters and our fond memories of friends, family and Hawaii. We saw an opportunity to share what we love about Hawaii while working to support small crafters, artists, and businesses.
Both living away from Hawaii during different times in our lives, we recognized that whether you are from here, lived here or have just visited here, there’s something unique about the experiences that you have with Hawaii that you long for when you’re away.
Why is using natural ingredients so important? Where do you source them?
All Natural Ingredients are so important because not only are they good for your body but also for our environment. Here at My Aloha Post, we support small businesses that are creating products that are made in Hawaii, so many of our vendors who make all natural ingredients source their products right here in our islands.
If you have to choose ONE product that is our absolute must-have, what would it be?
We have new boxes that we have debuted for the holidays. We're really excited about our "Take it Easy" box that features beauty products that are locally made here in Hawaii. Made with certified organic ingredients, this box includes a paraban, sulfate and silicone free shampoo, gentle enough for babies, from Lanikai Bath and Body. To protect your skin from the sun, enjoy Little Hands Hawaii's all natural sunscreen, made here in Honolulu. And, rub away your stress with Zenziva's Chocolate Body Scrub made with all natural ingredients.
We’re curious about you as well – what is a typical day in your life like?
For us, a typical day here in Hawaii includes a visit to our favorite beach on Oahu in Kailua, shopping at our favorite small businesses and enjoying time with friends over a delicious Hawaiian food meal at Helena's.
What are your wellness tips for us?
We like to live everyday to the fullest. We believe that surrounding yourself with the people you love in a place you love is a very important part of taking care of yourself!
