Theobroma Cacao-Food of the Gods

LUSCIOUS~ ELIXIA  is dark, delicious, melt-in-your-mouth, rich, satisfying chocolate.

ORGANIC~ ELIXIA believes strongly in the importance of organic food for the health of our bodies and the earth.  Cacao and all ingredients are sourced from eco-conscious farms and companies dedicated to sustainable, organic, and fair-trade practices.

VEGAN~ No animal products whatsoever are used in the making of ELIXIA chocolate.

EVOLVING~ELIXIA chocolate is meant to encourage and embody evolution in many ways.  Evolution in the health of the body and mind via the consumption of superfoods such as raw cacao, and the exclusion of unnatural or non-nutrient dense foods from the diet.  Evolution of consciousness and spirit via high-vibration ingredients such as potent superfoods and herbs.  And evolution on a social and planetary scale by upholding high standards of ecology, sustainability, fairness, and consciousness in business.  By evolution we refer to a desire to continually embrace growth and change…for the better.

CHOCOLATE~THEOBROMA CACAO, literally Cacao, Food of the Gods, has long been revered as a sacred and magickal food.  Cacao has an illustrious history beginning with cultivation by the ancient Olmecs, Mayans and Aztecs, who revered it as an aphrodesiac and an elixir for good health.  The truth of these ideas is still understood today, as chocolate is a food like no other, whose effects can noticeably enhance mood, well-being, and enjoyment in life.

Raw cacao is considered to be one of the most potent superfoods known.  Higher in ORAC value ( a scale which measure antioxidants) than red wine, blueberries, green tea, and goji berries combined, cacao is rich in magnesium and mood-elevating compounds such as serotonin, tryptophan, PEA (the “love” chemical) and anandamide (the “bliss” chemical).

But can the power of chocolate really be expressed in words?  It is best experienced.

HANDCRAFTED~ELIXIA attributes a high value to the handcrafted good.  We know that a lot of energy goes into an artisan’s creation, which makes it unique and special.   The importance of conscious intention in the preparation of food has long been recognized in many cultures, and ELIXIA keeps this in mind while crafting small-batch chocolates with care.

ALCHEMICAL~The  art of Alchemy spans millenia and is a vast esoteric subject that can only be touched upon here.  The best-known goal of the ancient alchemists was the discovery of the Philosopher’s Stone, the Elixir of Immortality which possessed the power to transmute lead into gold and to confer immortal life.  The Inner Alchemy is to see this as a metaphor for personal physical and spiritual transformation, and the attainment of wisdom.  The combination of the mystically powerful ingredients involved in the making of ELIXIA chocolates, as well as the beneficial effects derived when we eat them, are forms of the ancient art of Alchemy.

RAW~ The cacao used to make ELIXIA chocolate has never been heated above 118*F and rarely exceeds 108* at any point in its minimal, cold-press processing, thereby preserving its many enzymes, vitamins, and phytonutrients, as well as its prana or life-force energy.    Raw cacao has been shown to contain 367% more antioxidants than even the finest cooked chocolate.   It is said that in its raw state cacao does not possess the addictive or overstimulating qualities that can occur with cooked chocolate. Raw cacao has a positive  and nourishing effect on the energy of body, mind,  and spirit.

MAGICK~ELIXIA is an invitation to mystical and spiritual elements to enrich our lives. We recognize magick in every ingredient, and in the intention to create wellness and pleasure.  We welcome joy, beauty, mystery, transformation, the extraordinary, and the sacred.
