All of ŌKU’s formulas are designed to show off the amazing properties of the rākau (plants) found within our ngahere (forests).

Many of these have a rich history of traditional use and ŌKU taps into this while looking at new and novel ways to use these special rākau. While Kawakawa is certainly one of our favourites here at ŌKU, we also use many others such as: Kūmarahou, Mānuka, Houhere, Akeake, Horopito, Karamū and Rewarewa.

We also use more traditional herbs to support, complement and amplify the properties of these natives.

 At ŌKU we still do things the traditional way where our rākau (plants) with very few exceptions are still hand harvested. While this may be very time intensive we believe it follows our kaupapa (purpose) of how we want to be good kaitiaki (guardians) of the whenua (land).

We have a strict protocol that both we and our harvesters follow. It covers things like what they harvest, when they harvest and how they harvest, including of course how much they harvest from each rākau. 

We like to think of these herbs as being even better than organic as they are grown in their natural habitat in the ngaher


Arnica Balm

These are then blended with Wild & Hand harvested NZ Horopito & NZ Tutu with Cayenne. Together these herbs provide a broad range of properties to help amplify and complement the Kawakawa & Arnica. The herbs are supported with the analgesic qualities of Peppermint & Clove Essential oils and the NZ First Light essence remedy for Trauma Akeake.
