THE CACAO  Receive the natural benefits of our 100% pure cacao paste with 2 blocks of 4oz each (0.5 Lbs total)! It was made with love in Paxil and K'ayala' (Guatemala), and it is filled with incredible properties that will activate and heal your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies. Made 100% by hand and blessed by indigenous spiritual leaders to ensure that all of its incredible traits are contained within it and you can experience the heart opening and spiritual connection powers of cacao.

THE CANDLES - These traditional Mayan candles are produced one of the Ajq'ijab' (Mayan spiritual leaders) we work with at the Mayan Wisdom Project! Used in ceremonies, invocations, and many of the traditional practices and rituals, these candles were produced in the K'iche' nation. They come in the color white, which represents the ability to heal our relationships, connection, and to unlock our energy. We chose white because it is the one color that gives versatility in the spiritual practice, by providing the ability to set any desired intention during invocations.

THE JICARAS - Jícaras are the traditional Mayan cacao drinking cups. The Popol Wuj (sacred book of the Mayans) tells the story of Junajpu and Ixbalanque, who are known as the Elders that teach us how to overcome the trials of Xib'alb'a (the Mayan underworld which represents our own darkness). They go through a journey of defeating the trials that life brings and overcoming the parts of us that don't serve our purpose in life. They teach us about consciousness, determination, and strength. After succeeding at overcoming the trials of darkness, the twins turn into Jícaras, which is a form of squash that grows on a sacred tree. For millennia, the Mayans have emptied the squash and used it to drink their medicines, such as cacao. The cup itself is connected to healing purposes, so drinking cacao medicine from it only intensifies its effects, and bring even more healing. These jícaras are 100% handmade by a family in Baja Verapaz, Guatemala. 


For the Cacao - Mix 2-3 Tbsp of ceremonial cacao into 6-8 oz hot water in a blender and mix until foamy! 

OR even better... Do it the traditional way and mix your cacao (2-3 Tbsp) with double the size of hot (but not boiling) water, mix well until it becomes liquid and then add enough hot water to fill your cup. 

Cacao paste can also be added to foods, smoothies, breakfast bowls, ice cream, energy balls, and more!

For the candles - You can use these candles for your spiritual practices. Use a match or a lighter and expose the bottom of the candle to the fire for a few seconds, then steadly place on a flat surface. You can then light your candle and allow it to burn until it is fully consumed.For the jícaras - You can use as you would with any other cup. For washing, use your normal sponge and soap. DO NOT place in the dishwasher.


To store the cacao, remember that ceremonial cacao doesn't need to be refrigerated. Simply put it in a dark and cool space.

Our cacao only includes 100% pure cacao paste -we pride ourselves in the fact that this cacao didn't go through even 1 industrial machine!
