Ceremonial Cacao for heart opening ❤️
Let's look at a bit of history with India and Cacao.🚂
Cacao seed was brought to India by chocolate companies so they could save on imports since it was originally coming from south Africa or south America.
(Chocolate companies only use a lil bit of cacao powder, and rest is vegetable fats and sugar)
Since the farmers in India were allready growing acai nut and few other acidic crops, they decided to add this to there cash crop and sell it to chocolate companies.
Usually cacao butter is extracted from Cacao and we are left with cacao powder which doesn't have much benefits. Cacao butter is expensive and hence sold seperately.
Now coming to ceremonial cacao story😊
I had to take few flights and taxis to reach South Indian farms from the comfort of my himachal home.
⭐The intension was to look for a farm which doesn't grow acidic cash crops next to cacao since cacao sucks everything.
⭐Soil testing was helpful from my permaculture learning.
⭐Looking at the conditions of the workers at the farm
⭐Learning the process from growing, harvesting the pods, fermentation, sun drying, sorting, grinding and pure cacao paste
Ceremonial dose is about 20 - 30 gms made into a hot cacao beverage
You could add ygeia rose oil or vanilla oil to jazz up the game 🎯
We also have cacao with mushrooms if you like mushies with your cacao.
