This Ceremonial Cacao is harvested and made by the hands of women in Gautemala. The Lavender Cacao has organic lavender added to it that has been freshly ground down with the Cacao for your order. Lavender brings about purity, and serenity. Stilling the heart, and calming the spirit. This allows you to be able to receive the blessings of the cacao more freely and openly. This is not overly "floraly" but more a subtle flavor.
Serenity. Organic Cacao, Organic Ground Lavender, Mayan Spices and Panella.
Sacred Flow is so honored and blessed to announce that our Ceremonial Cacao is now being sourced from a women-run farm in Guatemala. This Cacao is prepared by the hands of women who have a deep, ancestral connection to the medicine of Cacao. The blend is different from our previous Cacao Source. This is reflected in the ingredients as well as the taste profile, medicinal effects and a better ability to dissolve into a creamy heart-opening cacao drink.
Ingredients: Raw Organic Cacao, Panella, Mayan Spices, Organic Lavender
*The panella is a form of raw organic sugar cane that assists in preserving the cacao as well as bringing in a natural sweetness to your cup without you needing to add any sweetener. The mayan spices are traditional and allow the absorption of the properties to be more affective and more intensely felt.
Pure Intentions: This Organic Cacao is single origin, ceremonial grade Cacao from a women-run farm in Guatemala. It is stone ground and blended with panella and mayan spices. A small prayer of gratitude and blessings is said, along with a ceremonial, protective smoke of Mapacho blown on each package.
How To Prepare:
For an affective cup of ceremonial cacao, 2-4 tbsp of cacao prepared with 16oz of either hot water or plant based milk is optimal. You can also prepare with half water and half milk. Oat milk and coconut milk are most ideal for cacao preparation.
For a ceremonial dose, 4-5 tbsp of cacao for every 16oz of water or milk is optimal.
Prepare a pot of water or plant based milk, and add your preferred amount of cacao into the pot. Stir frequently as the liquid begins to heat up, and the cacao begins to melt. Remove from stove when the cacao has mostly melted. Feel free to use a hand blender and frother to create a creamier blend, or transfer to a blender before you drink.
Benefits: This Cacao is an absolute heart opener. It may elevate your mood and your energy, and also bring focus and clarity. Cacao assists us in connecting to our hearts, our bodies, and our connection to nature. You may feel a slight body buzz, tingling, and a beautiful grounding sensation. Cacao is packed full of vitamins and minerals and increases blood flow to the brain which helps to strengthen awareness and focus. It helps the body to heal, detoxify and to give your immune system a good boost.
Prayer from my heart to your heart: May we create space in our hearts to invite in healing, acceptance, clarity and forgiveness. May this Cacao teach us what it means to surrender to our hearts, to our higher selves, to our truth and to our souls. May we let go of fear, and move forward with love, trusting in the process of life and knowing that we are always surrounded by abundance and divinity. Matyox, Gracias, Thank You.
