Ingredients of Alchemy

ELIXIA contains only the finest organic and nutrient-dense ingredients. Every ingredient has benefits to health!

All chocolate is completely free of gluten, dairy, soy, and white sugar.

“Cacao contains the highest concentration of antioxidants of any food in the world…by weight, cacao has more antioxidants than red wine, blueberries, acai, pomegranate, and goji berries combined.” David Wolfe, Superfoods

Raw Cacao is considered to be the most potent superfood known, having the highest ORAC value of any food, and is much more rich in antioxidants than the finest cooked chocolate. It is dense with health-promoting and mood-enhancing compounds. Cacao is a wonderful source of valuable magnesium, a mineral crucial to our well-being in everything from mood to metabolism to cell health, and contains chromium, iron, and more vitamin C than oranges…It is loaded with PEA, the chemical which our brains release when we fall in love…..Cacao contains anandamide, the “bliss chemical”….and tryptophan, which aids in the production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter known to alleviate depression….the list goes on and on…*

There are many healthful benefits attributed to cacao and raw cacao in particular; one may find innumerable articles on the web and in books of varying degrees of scholarly veracity. Ultimately it is up to each of us individually to decide what is true for us, by listening to one’s body and its responses to substances we ingest.

ELIXIA aims to provide the most nutrient-dense chocolate possible, so our chocolate is made from truly raw organic cacao sourced from Big Tree Farms in Bali. This flavorful, dark cacao has a unique taste and is carefully processed at low temperatures and verified to be raw. Growing wild on the slopes of a lush volcano, this sustainable cacao is truly the food of the gods!

Coconut Palm Sugar is made from the nectar of the coconut tree, which is gathered by hand and kettle-boiled over an open hearth fire. Though it is not raw, it is a simply-processed natural sweetener which is nutritionally superior to raw sweeteners like agave or dates. It is rich in minerals such as magnesium, potassium, zinc, iron, and an array of B-vitamins. Coconut palm sugar has a low glycemic-index of 35, which makes it very gentle on the body.

Sugar, amongst the health-conscious, can be a tricky subject because although it is delicious, the wrong kinds of sugar, or too much of it, can wreak havoc on our bodies. ELIXIA chocolate is dark and dense with cacao, luscious with raw cacao butter, and perfectly, albeit somewhat minimally, sweetened!

In addition to being healthy for our bodies, coconut palm sugar is highly sustainable, as the trees can grow in and replenish depleted soils, use very little water, and support diverse ecosystems. These trees also provide many other usable materials for farmers. Elixia uses coconut sugar from Big Tree Farms which directly benefits the farmers who cultivate and harvest it, as well as the environment in which it grows.*

Vanilla~ The vanilla bean is the exotic and fragrant fruit of an orchid. This orchid blooms only for one day and must be hand-pollinated, making vanilla one of the most valued spices in the world. Used in magickal formulae to induce love and lust, vanilla is highly prized for its heady scent and lush flavor.*

Spagyrics were created by the great healer and alchemist Paracelsus in the 16th century. Meaning literally to separate and recombine, spagyrics are the solve et coagula of alchemy, a process which purifies, magnifies, and  liberates the most essential healing intelligence and vital nature of the plant. Elixia uses spagyrics from Al-Qemi, modern herbal alchemists using ancient techniques aligned with the energy, rhythm and processes of  Nature.*

Rose Otto is the purest steam-distilled essential oil of the rose – it takes the petals of more than 40 roses to produce one drop of this magickal substance!  Roses are potent symbols of love, beauty, and the Goddess. Their scent is a known aphrodisiac, which opens the heart, soothes tension, and dispels depression. Rose oil is also one of the strongest aromatherapeutic, analgesic and antiviral oils. To consume raw cacao imbued with this precious essence is a sacred and sensual act!*

Fleur de Sel is the “flower of the salt,” a rare French sea salt which contains 93 different minerals. Harvested by hand using only wooden tools, in the traditional Celtic method, it is highly valued for its crystalline texture and delicate flavor. Just a pinch of this artisanal salt encourages the flavors of the chocolate to fully blossom.*

Damiana~Called the “Goddess of Love” by the Greeks, and with a reputation as an aphrodisiac extending back to the ancient Mayans, this aromatic herb has been revered around the world for its ability to enhance and focus sexual energies. This effect is attributed mainly to damiana’s ability to ease anxiety and nervousness, as well as acting as a general  tonic. Used by both men and women, damiana may contribute to improved orgasms and the experience of euphoria!*

Maca, sometimes called “Peruvian Ginseng,” is a potent adaptogen and one of the most popular superfoods today, as well as one of the most delicious! This sweet root which grows high in the Andes mountains is used to increase strength and stamina, as well as to boost libido.*

Chlorella is a single-celled algae well-known as a potent detoxifier, immune stimulator, and source of excellent nutrition. It is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, chlorophyll, protein, vitamin B-12, and over 20 vitamins and minerals.  Chlorella is often credited with improving mental cognition. Scientists believe Chlorella to be one of the Earth’s oldest living organisms!*


Ormus Supergreens are the finest probiotic cultured greens grown on the volcanic soil of a pristine ancient seabed which is loaded with platinum, gold, silver, and ORMUS trace minerals, giving the greens a magnetic property which increases the vibration and frequency of those who consume it. Packed with minerals, vitamins, phytonutrients, and amino acids, this raw, certified organic green powder is amazingly nourishing and powerfully detoxifying.

Pau D’Arco is an herb which grows in the Amazonian rainforest, the use of which has been traced back to the Incas. The inner bark of pau d’arco has antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties.*

Cat’s Claw has a long tradition of use in South America. Known as “opener of the way” for it’s ability to cleanse the intestinal tract, Cat’s claw is used to fend off disease, decrease pain, and detoxify the entire body. Ethical harvesting of the cat’s claw vine is a major source of income for Brazilian and Peruvian villages.*

Chaga is one of the most potent medicinal mushrooms. Revered for centuries throughout eastern Europe and Asia, it is known as “Mushroom of Immortality” and “Gift from God,” and is said to possess powerful immune-boosting, anti-aging, anti-cancer, and anti-viral properties. Chaga has an extraordinarily high ORAC value.*
