Shoo The Flu
Feeling freaked out the swine flu that’s hit Hawai‘i? Time to do some Island-based, germ phobic shopping!
Aloha Masks are standard respirator masks, made to keep out viruses. But the harsh surgical style is made friendlier with the use of a hibiscus print. The masks are made in Kaneohe, $9.50 each.
Toss a Plumeria Rain hand sanitizer in your purse or car. It’s handmade in Hawaii, aloe-based, and comes in fragrances like pikake and guava. $3.90 for two ounces at http://www.plumeriarain.com/product_p/rths.htm.
And if, despite your best efforts, you still come down with the flu, you can at least blow your nose in style with Honolulu-based SoHa’s Kona tissue holder. This $13.80 box is made from seagrass and comes in three colors.
