OUR MEDICINE ALLIES

All medicine work relies on relationships. All of the Hola & Aloha products are inspired by or include cacao in its many forms, but also include many other medicine allies, including plants and minerals, as well as imagery to support your practice. Here are several of the main allies we work with in these products...

CACAO BEAN HUSK

All of our salts and scrubs include Hawaiian cacao bean husk, from the very beans that become our ceremonial cacao. In addition to the spiritual medicina of cacao, the husks are loaded with antioxidants, which can help fight free radicals and reduce inflammation.

SALTS

We work with different salts combining them for ultimate benefit.

BENEFITS for skin: Salt absorbs dirt, grime, and toxins and cleanses your skin's pores deeply. Salt's mineral content helps restore the protective barrier in skin and helps it hold hydration.

BENEFITS for energy: from clearing energy, breakthrough to restoration, to spiritual protection, fortification, and more, depending on how it is worked with by a practitioner/maker & you when you use it.  

Bath Salts

CORNMEAL

All of our dry scrubs include cornmeal. This is such a foundational and staple medicina of the southwest and Mesoamerica. It is essential to many peoples and lineages across cultures, and to our understanding of who we are as human beings. As a medicina, it is nurturing, grounding, life giving and affirming, and connected to star medicine as well. 

COCOA BUTTER

Cocoa butter or cacao butter is the extracted oils from cacao beans, which is also a part of ceremonial cacao when it is traditionally processed. Any cacao that is powdered (we never remove the cacao butter from our beans) does not include this essential part of cacao medicina. 

BENEFITS for skin: In addition to being protective and nourishing for skin, similar to cacao husks, the butter is loaded with antioxidants, can help fight the damage caused by free radicals, and can reduce inflammation. 

BENEFITS for energy: nourishing, loving, grounding, protective, centering, and more, depending on how it is worked with by a practitioner/maker & you when you use it.
