Hawaiʻi, the most isolated landmass on earth, is a paradise, where heavenly rainfall is naturally filtered through 13,000 feet of pristine lava rock, slowly gathering minerals and electrolytes that creates a water as soft and sweet as the Lehua blossom. Hawaiian artesian water collects in deep earth aquifers protected from external elements until it hits your lips. It has a naturally Alkaline pH of 7.7 and is a perfect balance of taste and minerals, ideal for hydrating your body.
RISING OVER MAJESTIC VOLCANOES
IN THE MIDDLE OF THE PACIFIC
Of all the waters in the world, only one-‐-‐-‐Hawaiian Springs Natural Artesian Water-‐-‐-‐traces its origins to a cultural legend, the story of a handsome warrior, Ohia, and a beautiful maiden, named Lehua. According to Hawaiian folklore, Pele, the goddess of volcanoes and fire, fell in love with Ohia and asked him to marry her. Angered when he spurned her proposal, Pele turned Ohia into a gnarled and twisted tree. Lehua was heartbroken.
The other gods, taking pity on her, decided it was an injustice to have the lovers separated. So they turned Lehua into a flower on the Ohia tree, joining them together forever. Hawaiian Legend says if you pick a Lehua blossom, it will rain that day, as the falling drops are tears of sorrow as the lovers are separated once again.
The red Lehua blossom on Hawaiian Springs’ label has special meaning, as her tears are the source of our water. It is a symbol of renewal, resilience, and sustainability. As this flower is only found in Hawaii, it represents Hawaiian Springs’ uniqueness and authenticity.
TEARS OF LOVE
A WATER BORN OF LEGEND
Naupaka is a shrub found in the mountains or near the shores of Hawaiʻi beaches that bears glossy green leaves and white flowers that resemble only half of a flower. The legend of these half-flowers come from Kauaʻi and honors the love between two young students, Nanau and Kapaka.
Nanau and Kapaka were haumāna, students, of a hula hālau who were expected to memorize long chants and dances as well as obey strict kapu (prohibitions) and protocols.
