How to prepare Ceremonial Cacao

There are three ways we prepare this beautiful plant medicine;

1. The quick morning way (see the video below) using hot water and a blender (keeping the temperature low). For daily use I would use roughly 20g.

2. Personal morning ceremony Slice into your cacao chunck so its more like a powder, add  all other ingredients to a double boiler (saucepan with glass bowl in the saucepan) simmer slightly, never letting the plant medicine boil.

Enjoy the process and time spent in creating this heart-felt medicine, set your intention and don't forget to take time to breath. I would use roughly 30g. 

3. For ceremony, prepare as above but allow the cacao and other ingredients time to infuse and merge, prepare 24 hours before use. I would use  40-50g per person.
Over this time visualise the group, put your intention and love into the cacao.

As you all know we absolutely love ceremonial grade cacao, it's not just the health benefits, but the whole ceremonial intention setting, prayer and gratitude exercise. 

Cacao is rich in antioxidants and minerals, it’s a natural anti-depressant and aphrodisiac. Cacao increases concentration and alertness, also enhances the effectiveness of other minerals and nutrients in the body for a healthier life.

We are often asked; what’s the difference between ceremonial cacao and raw cacao? Raw Cacao is highly processed removing the bean’s natural fat. This means that many living enzymes and healthy fat has been destroyed. Ceremonial Grade Cacao is completely pure. Nothing is added and nothing is removed.

We import cacao directly from an Ashaninka Tribe of farmers in Peru, a Tribe that specialises in cultivating their products with highest organic standards involving tradition, culture and quality.
