Bayabas (bye-yah-bas) - "Guava"
Guava leaves have an extensive history in many folk medicine applications, not only in the Philippines, but around the world.
These organically grown leaves were hand-picked, cleaned, dried, and shamanically blessed on our own land. They come from a very special tree with an Ancestral story that separates it from all others.
Guava leaves are used as a spiritual smudging tool. Burning guava leaves is an ancient Filipino practice that is used to cleanse negative energies from the environment, just as white sage is used by Native Americans in cleansing and sending up prayers. It is highly recommended to burn guava leaves in a heat-resistant bowl, as they burn hot and fast. Use with caution.
