The legend of the Ti Leaf
The Ti Plant is seen all throughout Hawaii and is a large part of the Hawaiian tradition and culture. The Ti Plant was brought to the islands by the Polynesians, who considered them to have divine power. In Hawaiian culture, Ti Leaves are sacred to Lono, the Hawaiian God of fertility and Laka, the Goddess of Hula. The leaves have been used by the Kahuna priests in their religious ceremonies as a protection to ward off evil spirits and bring in good.
Ti plants were used in many ways by ancient Hawaiians. They used it for baking and cooking. They also used the ti plants medically. When boiled, Hawaiians were known for drinking the water to aid nerve and muscle relaxation. They were also used to wrap around hot stones to use as a hot pack. Ti plants were also used to create roofs, plates, cups, and rain capes.
Today, Hawaiians still use Ti Plants from the leaf to their roots. Hawaiians also believe that planting Ti Plants on each corner of a home or property brings good luck and wards off evil spirits.
Ti Leaves are also known for having a very intense spiritual energy. While practicing meditation, it has been known to collect 4 Ti Leaves, to bring a sense of resting. The ti leaf is a very versatile plant and is sacred to Hawaiian culture.
