When I was creating my Ritual Cacao blends, I always knew I would dedicate a whole formulation to the two beautiful herbs - maca and rose. These ingredients work in such a beautifully synergistic way to support and balance hormones and energy. Coupled them with cacao and coconut sugar, and you have a sweet tasting elixir with lots of health benefits.
Maca is a Peruvian herb with a slightly earthy flavour and a hint of butterscotch. It has an affinity for hormonal systems, and has been shown to improve libido and energy in both women and men. In ancient times, warriors consumed maca to boost energy and stamina before battle. It has been considered a valuable currency in the past, and at some times was only reserved for royalty! In modern times, maca is used as a tonic to increase energy and vitality and has a balancing effect.
Organic pink rose has been prized for many centuries. It has a subtle sweet and floral flavour and a beautiful perfume. The pink colour is also incredible. Pink rose can be used for menstrual issues such as painful periods and can also help with mood swings associated with the menstrual cycle. It has an uplifting quality and can have a calming effect on the nervous system.
When blended together, rose and maca have a harmonising effect on the body. You can find them formulated together in the Balancing Ritual Cacao blend. I have also created a beautiful heart-opening bliss ball recipe which you can find here.
