Start your mornings with a delicious botanical blend of heart-opening ginseng, cacao, rose and spices.  American ginseng powder is a heart opener that has been used for thousands of years.  It dilates blood vessels, opens bronchial passageways, improves sexual function, and nourishes the spirit and qi.*  Cacao contains theobromine, which releases into the blood stream and increases blood flow to the brain, which increases awareness and focus. Cacao gives the sensation of the heart opening, filling with love, and opens our connection with ourselves and others.  Rose and cacao are herbal aphrodisiacs, bringing about feelings of pleasure and bliss. These compounds influence moods and states of alertness in a positive way.  In addition to having a positive effect on moods, ginseng and cacao are also known to have high levels of antioxidants, are anti-inflammatory agents, and are full of vitamins and minerals.
