FOR THE LOVE OF CHOCOLATE + CEREMONY
TEMPTRESS APOTHECARY IS INSPIRED BY TRADITIONAL PLANT WISDOM, OFFERING POTENT BOTANICAL BLENDS TO BE USED DAILY IN RITUAL AND REVERENCE, AND TO SUPPORT WELLNESS, PLEASURE AND COMMUNION. The sacred spirit of Cacao has been honoured throughout history and revered for its blissful heart-opening qualities and nutrient-dense health benefits. The name of the plant, Theobroma literally translates to ‘Food of the Gods’. We pay deep respect to the ancient cultures and their wisdoms, while creating a self-honouring ritual entirely of our own, using only the purest organic ceremonial grade Criollo bean (heirloom) Cacao which we stone ground for the highest quality aromatic flavour. These beans are grown with great care, skilfully harvested, fermented and dried by small sustainable communities in Ecuador. Our ceremonial cacao is rich in nutrients and chock full of antioxidants, with a lively, rich chocolatey aroma. A tantalising touch of cayenne invites bioavailability of the plant medicine, while cinnamon and turmeric add a sensual spicy depth. This celestial beverage is a luxurious delicacy that can be enjoyed in every day ritual or in larger amounts for sacred ceremony.
Ceremonial Cacao Paste, Cinnamon Powder, Turmeric Powder, Cayenne Pepper, Black Pepper 100% love.
*Our Ceremonial Cacao is 100% Australian Certified Organic (ACO) No. 13040

CONDITION OF SALE *Please Note ~ Our Ceremonial Cacao comes to you in its most beautiful pure, raw, unadulterated form. As such, she is heat sensitive and prone to melting in the hotter months. We will pack her well with insulation but cannot be held responsible for melting caused by heat exposure during shipping. Make sure you have your cacao delivered to you directly so that she does not stay out in the sun for any length of time ~ although she is still delicious and beneficial even if some melting has occurred.
Due to the heat sensitivity of our Cacao, we ship on Mondays and Thursdays. Any orders made after 4pm on Thursday will not be shipped until the following Monday.
