Alchemy: KAKAO & Essential Oils
Cacao + Oils = Pure Alchemy.
I recorded a short audio to share my story with essential oils & some info on how them to incorporate into your daily life & ceremonies:
Michael and I use pure essential oils (Mother Earth's plant-wisdom in concentrated form) daily in our KAKAO, on our skin, diffused in our spaces, in the shower...and much more.
There are many benefits, but the most meaningful for us include:
- vibrant & clear skin
- calm nervous system
- emotional release
- deep breath
- access to sensuality
- improved communication
- infinite creativity
- ....the list goes on.
My Favorite Oils Right Now
I am obsessed with dozens of essential oils, but here are some of my current go-to's, along with their emotional properties (these lists do not include all the anti-aging, digestion support, glowing skin or immune function benefits!)
- Frankincense: The oil of Truth & Divine Father
- Lavender: The oil of Calm & Communication (Speaking your Truth)

DoTerra means 'of the Earth,' which is exactly what their organization stands for. Like KAKAO, DoTerra sources native plants only. For instance, Sandalwood grows natively in certain parts of Hawaii and India, therefore DoTerra owns the farms & sources their Sandalwood only in these regions. They work with the local communities & own all of their farms to ensure a 100% transparent supply chain. Beyond the sourcing values that so align with KAKAO's non-profit mission, these oils simply call to me. Just like cacao does. Intuitively my heart & body is a yes, which is probably why I've been consistently exposed to them for years through some of the most courageous, humble, inspiring & beautiful women I know.
