Rongoa Native plants of New Zealand are NZ natural remedies and edible plants of old. Commonly gathered, prepared and used by NZ Indigenous peoples of Aotearoa. The Rogoa NZ Native Plant Remedies were used by Maori prior to european colonisation.
These sought after every day natural plant remedies were added to and expanded to by the colonisers who contributed their own traditional herbal knowledge.
Suzanne Aubert, a french nun, embraced Rongoa native herbsof New Zealand wholeheartedly, then formulated recipes based on her own experience with botanical remedies, chemistry, botany and the knowledge gained working along side Maori healers. Being fluent in the maori language, she produced a significant maori text, gathered and manufactured remedies introducing Rongoa tinctures & produced, monitored and catalogued new recipes that are still relevant and valued today by both maori and non-maori.
