Home kawakawa cure sparks online business
A former champion wood chopper has turned rongoā Māori used for a debilitating skin condition into a business.
Karmyn Wynyard says she started making a kawakawa-based cream to treat eczema she and her children were experiencing.
When her job with Air New Zealand fell through because of the global pandemic she instead built up her KawaCure natural health company, shifting from mainly markets to online sales.
"Now everyone's shopping online it's made a huge difference, people can access my products now without having to come to see me at markets and the relief they can get for eczema, arthritis, gout, so many things these products can help and I want to share it with everybody," Ms Wynyard says.
