Ceremonial Cacao is a transformational tool used to help you heal emotionally, spiritually, physically and mentally. 100% raw cacao is “food of the gods”, it opens the heart, elevates mood, replenishes the body with vital minerals, lowers blood pressure, removes toxins from the body, aids in sleep, and fights inflammation. Commercial chocolate is overprocessed and ingredients like sugar cane and milk that rob cacao of its natural physical, mental, emotional and spiritual benefits. When drunk with intention 100% raw cacao creates space for deep emotional healing.

All of the ceremonial cacao at Firefly naturally includes cacao butter, which is one of the highest-grade fats and is the most effective carrier of cacao’s medicinal benefits into the body. Firefly cacao is all organic, vegan, lightly toasted, paleo and keto friendly, soy free, sugar-free, gluten-free and non-GMO. They source their beans directly from indigenous farming families in Belize, Equador, Guatemala, and Tanzania. Their ceremonial cacao is grown only in the most pristine areas of the earth, often bordering extensive protected lands, so the cacao agroforestry acts as an ecologically diverse buffer to the protected lands and benefits from pure water and uncontaminated soils. The pods are hand harvested when perfectly ripe and brought to cooperatively owned artisanal fermentation facilities, where the flavor of the cacao beans develop for 5-7 days in fermentation boxes before being sun-dried (not gas dried) for one to two weeks. All of the cacao is hand sorted before being shipped to Firefly in large burlap sacks, and then hand-sorted again when it arrives at the chocolate studio. Firefly’s cacao has been lab tested for safety and meets comprehensive EU standards for the absence of heavy metals. Last but not least they have a true passion for ceremonial cacao and maintain the high healing vibration energy level of this plant medicine in tact!
