Vanilla-scented maile is a vine-like shrub that grows in the mountain rainforests of Hawaii. The vine bark and leaves are stripped and intertwined and knotted to make the maile lei. It is associated with Laka, the patron spirit of hula (dance), and was commonly used in sacred ceremonies. Today, the maile lei is the traditional lei used in very important ceremonies, such as weddings and funerals.
