Single Ti Leaf Lei
The Ti Leaf lei is a simple lei made from the Ti plant. Hawaiians believe that the ti plant has powers to heal and to ward off evil spirits. The ti was the sacred symbol of the gods. The leaves were used in the rituals of cleansing and rendering free of evil spirits by the kahuna-pule heiau, temple priest, and in the rituals of healing by the kahuna-lapa’au, the medical priest.
