In Hawaiian tradition, Pohinahina- especially the leaves- was used as plant medicine to relieve illnesses related to the head and crown, including headaches, insomnia, migraine, eye pain, queasiness and nalulu (a dull pain in the head). As such, it is not surprising that its Essence is highly beneficial in harmonizing the chakras from your Heart up through to your Crown- with special emphasis on your Throat and Third Eye chakras. It promotes clear mental-emotional processing and may be beneficial to use when feeling symptoms of overwhelm- such as when you have so many thoughts and/or so much new information to process that you feel like shutting down.
The Pohinahina plant has also been used as a folk medicine for the treatment of colds, asthma and chronic bronchitis. The action of its Essence is similarly noteable on the energies of the Heart and Throat Chakras- positively impacting energies of circulation and breath. It also helps you integrate different types of energy affecting how you communicate, feel and think, so that you have more inner peace and calm to hear, process and express your own heart.
