History & Uses

Our Cocoa Absolute is a Gift of the Gods!  The aroma is of yummy chocolate, think chocolate syrup. The absolute is that rich, dark, deep-brown color we associate with dark chocolate. This is a wonderful material – from the bean of the Theobroma cacao tree – for  perfumes, soaps and bath salts.

The Aztecs believed that cocoa was the food of the gods. It has been used as a divine food to relieve stress and fatigue, and to build the body’s resistance against common diseases.

One of the ways cocoa benefits the brain and the entire body is by inducing pleasurable desires. It stimulates the release of endorphins, which are natural hormones produced only in the brain. Endorphins control the sex drive and elevate mood in the human body. These hormones promote a general sense of well being among cocoa consumers.

Serotonin is another hormone that is produced in the brain. Cocoa components are capable of increasing the stimulation of these hormones through the production of tryptophan, an essential amino acid that enhances feelings of pleasure.

This is why we think you will love Cocoa Absolute! The scent can take you to a sensuous and pleasurable place.

Valentine’s Day ~ with Love

Quote:

Love is a symbol of eternity.
It wipes out all sense of time,
destroying all memory of a beginning
and all fear of an end. ~Author Unknown

We’re all a little weird.  And life is a little weird.
And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours,
we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness –
and call it love – true love.
