Malama ‘Ohana Education


Welcome to the Malama ‘Ohana Education Series, where we embrace the essence of self-care and personal growth. In the beautiful language of 'Olelo Hawai'i, "Malama ‘Ohana" means to "take care of your family," and that is exactly what this series aims to inspire.

Imagine having your own personal apothecary, filled with knowledge and tools that empower you to deepen your self-awareness and challenge you to prioritize your well-being. This series is designed to be a transformative journey, guiding you towards a more balanced and fulfilling life.

Together, let's challenge ourselves to prioritize our well-being and embrace the concept of Malama Pono - taking care of ourselves in mind, body, and spirit.

Ocean Apothecary

At Ocean Apothecary, we are dedicated to taking care of yourself naturally with Hawaiian herbs. As experts in the field, we understand the importance of using organic and locally sourced ingredients to provide you with the best products for your well-being.

Founded in 2020 on the island of ‘Oahu by Tricia Siletti, Ocean Apothecary is an ecommerce store that specializes in selling organic and locally sourced sunscreen products. Our mission is to offer you sunscreens that not only protect your skin from harmful UV rays but also provide powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory qualities.

What sets our sunscreens apart is our focus on natural ingredients like Hawaiian 'Olena and Sandalwood. These ingredients have been used for centuries in traditional Hawaiian medicine for their healing properties. By harnessing the power of these herbs, our sunscreens not only protect your skin but also nourish and rejuvenate it.

But our commitment to your well-being goes beyond just your skin. We are also passionate about preserving the health of our oceans and marine life. That's why our sunscreens are safe for children, ocean wildlife, reef, and sea fauna. We believe that taking care of yourself should never come at the expense of the environment.

In addition to our range of sunscreen products, we also offer classes in herbalism to residents and visitors to the island of Maui. These classes provide an opportunity to learn about the healing properties of Hawaiian herbs and how to incorporate them into your daily life.

At Ocean Apothecary, we are more than just a store. We are your partners in natural self-care. Join us on this journey to embrace the power of Hawaiian herbs and take care of yourself naturally.
