Our Story


Our Moʻolelo

Aloha mai,

We embrace and share our native Hawaiian heritage with you through our mantra, we nourish ourselves from the power of our land.  Ao Ola, meaning the dawn to new life, offers a refreshing flow of energy and vitality through the ingredients we choose to utilize holistically.  Our product ingredients reflect that meaning as they are created into our natural skin and body care products that are packed with essential nutrients, minerals and mana (energy) from our ʻāina (land) to nourish the skin, body and spirit.

Our Hawaiian botanical approach incorporates mindful, sustʻĀINAble and purposeful ingredient use, selection and sourcing. We source freshly cultivated sustainable, local, native Hawaiian, wild-harvested, raw, plant derived and organic ingredients.  We utilize at lease 2 or more native Hawaiian botanicals in all our products.

Ao Ola provides ʻāina to skin, skin to mana all natural skin and body care products.  We invite you to experience our Hawaiian heritage and nourishing products.  As our kupuna (ancestors) and I believe, the mana that you put in, is reflected in the out come.

Handcrafted in small batches in Hawai'i.

E komo mai and experience our Hawaiian heritage!

1% of all sales goes towards helping to sponsor the Green Market student entrepreneurship challenge at our local public and/or charter schools.  The challenge inspires younger generations to become GREEN entrepreneurs through PRODUCT-BASED education with a sustʻĀINAbility theme.


Meet the Founder - Moani

Aia wau mai ka mokupuni ʻo Oʻahu, ka moku ʻo Koʻolaupoko, ka ahupuaʻa ʻo Kāneʻohe, ka ʻili ʻo Keana.


My journey began at ke kula kaiapuni 'o Pū'ōhala (the Hawaiian immersion school of Pū'ōhala) which gave roots to my Hawaiian heritage. I spent more than 8 years working with native Hawaiian plants. My roots in Hawaiian immersion and love for how plants have the power to benefit our skin and overall health lead me to holistic aesthetics (Botanica Skincare) and inspired me to develop Ao Ola, ʻāina to skin, skin to mana all natural skin and body care products.  

After the oppression our culture has undergone, it is important to revive and perpetuate the use of native Hawaiian botanicals in every day life, which is why all our products contain at least two or more native Hawaiian botanicals.  My belief that plant-based products optimize your body, mind and spirit is why I choose to use and share these products with you.  I  am a workshop educator, licensed esthetician, mom and believer in the power of our ʻāina, mana and plants. MAHALO!
