“Nana Marina’s Cacao” is 100% grown, harvested, toasted, fermented, packaged and distributed by GuateMayans only from start to finish. This is crucial to mention as the colonization of sacred indigenous plants continue on to this day. Often times the profit greatly benefits foreigners while the local people work as their employees and never as actual land owners and/or fairly compensated as the original sacred keepers of this plant.
It is our social responsibility to do our part in making sure the words “ethically sourced” stand for a true ethical business model and not simply a nice catch phrase.
With respect and reverence we offer a few ceremony materials for your personal practices:
-Copal & Palo Santo: for smudging, cleansing and blessing (Copal requires coals for smudging).
-Cacao Seeds: to offer and for your altar.
-Agua De Florida: for cleansing and clearing of tools and individuals.
*Every cacao block or ground bag order includes a Palo Santo stick, Instructions Card and a hemp bag for storage.
