Not All Chocolate is Created Equal

Chocolate is derived from the seeds of this Cacao pod. These sweet, white, pulpy beans are loaded with vitamin C, while the bitter bean hiding inside each pulpy shroud contains abundant antioxidants. Cacao is high in magnesium and other nutrient-dense vitamins and minerals in its raw state that deem this herb a true super herb.
Don’t be fooled though: like all things, not all chocolate is created equal; most commercially-made chocolate is made using high heat in its roasting process; losing much of the health benefits cacao is historically known for. “Chocolate” companies also add copious amounts of sugar to sweeten the organic bitter, earthy, mineral-rich taste of cacao; unfortunately like chocolate, not all sugar is created equal either.

When chocolate is labeled in percentages; i.e. 50% dark; this begs the question…what is in the other 50% Typically, this means that 50% of the final product is typically processed sugar or other sweeteners.
We take careful consideration when growing and preparing this magnesium-rich, decadent superfood; using slow-curing, solar dehydrators; rather than cooking it with high heat. Our artisanal curing process protects the cacaos integrity and it’s profound health benefits.

Yup, I said it; Guiltless cacao! We powder and inoculate this herb into our Love Potion tea, Cacao+ Olena Spice Blend, and Endurance Superfood powder.

This is What Medicine Looks Like!

?TURMERIC (aka Olena) harvested fresh today. This is what medicine looks like! This golden cluster of turmeric was harvested for my dear friend and one of your medicine-makers, who took a surfboard to the shin.

Turmeric is an excellent anti-inflammatory, as well as an herb esteemed for clearing infection and cleansing open wounds. It is highly circulatory, a brilliant line of defense when it comes to cardiovascular health, and due to its high levels of the compound curcumin, it is excellent in breaking down free radicals that can lead to illness.

Turmeric can be consumed in teas, smoothies, culinary dishes and used topically. This herb may just be the most all-around medicine we have here on the farm.

Today, we will use the raw, cold-pressed juice of the Turmeric rhizome to apply liberally over the wound, as well as consume it internally.

This herb makes its way into almost every one of our teas. The blends that have a high percentage of Turmeric include our 100% TURMERIC powder, CACOA OLENA, CURRY spice blend, and VITALITEA.

LOVE IN ABUNDANCE

Check out this behemoth Ashwagandha Root harvest! There is nothing in the world quite like Kauai-grown Ashwagandha Root. This plant is abundant in our gardens, & for this reason, we are increasing the ratio of Ashwagandha root in some of our favorite herbal blends: Love Potion tea; Endurance & Green Energy Superfood powder.

The Ashwagandha root is one of Doug’s favorite herbs for endurance & supporting longevity. Ashwagandha is synonymous with enhancing one’s life force or libido. In Sanskrit, the word Ashwagandha means “The Vigor of a Stallion”.

According to Vaidya Smith, a well-known practitioner of Ayurvedic medicine, “Ashwagandha is a well-known semen-promoter & treats both impotency & infertility, as well as increases penis size & strength…Although it is considered to be the primary aphrodisiac & tonic for men, it can be safely used by women for up to one year in cases of pregnancy, general debility, nervous debility & stress…Ashwagandha increases memory & learning capabilities…& rejuvenates nerve & brain tissues…it also has anti-arthritic effects, builds muscle & bone tissue & helps patients with degenerative disorders like HIV & Aids…Large doses of the root show protection from x-rays & other radiation”.

The Ashwagandha plant is a native Indian plant, known as “Indian ginseng” that works to strengthen, restore, & rejuvenate the immune system: reducing inflammation, promoting clarity, & creating an overall calming energy.

Studies have shown that Ashwagandha inhibits the growth of breast, lung, colon, & central nervous system cancers.

We are so grateful that the Kauai Farmacy gardens are abundant with this magnificent healing plant.

Is Your Basket Half Full or Half Empty?

Is your basket half full or half empty?
Harvesting Tulsi (aka Holy Basil) and taking in the sweet and fragrant aroma of the Tulsi blossoms. There’s something magical about hand-harvesting these herbs; there is an energetic exchange of gratitude that takes place.

Tulsi-8

The plants are happier and healthier when culled and pruned; and we collectively are happier and healthier when receiving their nutritional and medicinal offerings.

This bounty of medicine will make its way into the solar dehydrators where they will be slow-cured in raw form. These dehydrated leaves and blossoms will greet our herbalists and tea-makers in a few days time (some herbs can take up to a week), when the plants are at their highest concentration levels of vitamins and minerals. These potent loose Tulsi leaves will be blended with other Kauai Farmacy garden herbs into masterful healing blends like our Love Potion (chai-flavored) tea and our Children’s Wellness (sweet, hibiscus-flavored) tea.
From these baskets to your cup in less than two weeks time is unheard of when it comes to the art of herbal tea-making and plant medicine. We do this because we believe that this is the ultimate way to preserve the true intention of the plants, along with its subtle yet powerful consciousness.

Love, the Kauai Farmacy Team. xoxoxo
