The Rei Niho is the name given to a piece carved Pounamu and resembling the whale tooth in form.  
This form represents peace, tranquility, spirituality, family as well as regrowth or new beginnings/journeys.

The Kawakawa shrub with its distinctive dark green leaves and insect holes in every leaf is a very special plant to the Maori people.  
Kawakawa's antimicrobial and analgesic properties make it a powerful treatment for all sorts of infections and abrasions all the way through to help with toothache, indigestion and even just general well being.
It is extremely rare to find a kawakawa leaf that hasn't been chewed on by insects showing just how good they are to eat.
