About Dawa

DAWA comes from the Kiswahili language meaning medicine. Nature's medicine has been used since the beginning of time to heal and to live joyfully. 
A DAWA MAMA is a woman who uses nature to heal herself, her family, and her nation. DAWA’s vision is that every home has a DAWA MAMA that will pass on a healing legacy for many generations to come. 

Picture of Tayler

Peace! I am Tayler.​
A Sun loving DAWA MAMA working to  heal myself, my family, and my nation by reclaiming our birthright to live in harmony with nature. As a student of nature and a mother of three children all born at home, my life is rooted in ancestral wisdom. The vision for DAWA was only established after taking an African history class that opened me up to the truth and the magnificence of the people before me. 

About Me

Our Mission

At DAWA, our mission is to inspire healing and well being through the power of mother nature and ancestral wisdom. 
DAWA’s mission only works if the community adopts this healing lifestyle. We desire and work towards absolute complete freedom of our people in mind, body, and spirit.
