Aphrodite’s Blend: Ceremonial Grade Drinking Cacao with Rose
Formulated to reduce stress, enhance sensuality and pleasure, and promote feelings of well being, this herbal cacao blend was inspired by the ancient cultural uses of these particular ingredients as aphrodisiacs.
Ancient Aztecs consumed cacao in physical and spiritual preparation for both battle and love making.
Mentioned in the ‘Kama Sutra’, stress reducing ashwagandha has a long history as an aphrodisiac in India.
The Greek goddess Aphrodite was said to be birthed from the sea, gently blown ashore by the west wind, Zephyrus, and the spring, Flora, amongst a shower of roses.
Cacao has a deep rooted history of ceremonial and ritualistic medicine in the Aztec and Mayan cultures. It is known to open the heart chakra, heighten awareness, inspire creativity, and support meditation.
