Hawaiian ‘Olena or turmeric has been used for medical and culinary purposes for over 4,000 years for everything from inflammation, gastrointestinal issues, or welcoming positivity and good fortune. Considered a “canoe plant” in Hawaii because of how it was transported by Polynesians between the Islands, ‘Olena is renowned for its “mana” or spiritual powers by the Hawaiian culture.
There is literally an almost endless way that the products in this experience can be used to elevate your culinary experiences. Combine the elixir with coconut water or your favorite drink to add a tropical, slightly spicy flavor. Add the golden curry to a recipe to enhance the flavor. Substitute your sea salt for Slow Beverage’s Ginger Turmeric Sea Salt to increase any dish complexity. Slice, blend, or boil with honey as a tea the raw ‘Olena for a true taste of the Islands.
Awesome! Only problem was the salt spilling due to a malfunction in packaging. Jenny in customer service went above and beyond to fix things and notify the team to improve their process. Would totally order this experience again.
Loved everything in the bundle. Enough turmeric to share. The salt was great on salmon, and I used the recipes for the paste and elixer. It would be great to be able to order the curry paste separately, too.
We have been loving the elixir and the paste...I grilled a turkey breast with the paste and it was absolutely fantastic...
I thought I would have this in my kitchen for a couple weeks... a couple days later i’ve used all the paste, most of the turmeric root and one of the elixirs.
This is a top-notch, classy product. The packaging is just beautiful and the recipes are delicious ideas. The raw turmeric is very fresh and peeled easily with my spoon. The elixir is so delicious and I definitely noticed the healing effect on my hand inflammation the next morning!! Well worth every penny and I highly recommend!
