Cacao is the predominant ingredient in chocolate (yummy!). It is not only delicious, but also has a number of important health benefits. It is believed that Cacao was first cultivated in Mexico and was used ceremonially by various tribes, including the Aztecs and Olmec.

Unlike cocoa, cocoa butter and cocoa powder, which are typically treated and roasted prior to delivery, cacao essential oil is extracted from the raw bean. This provides the essence of the bean in its natural state, uncompromised by heat, seasoning, or other outside influence.

Cacao is an evergreen tree that grows in humid climates, and the tree prefers part sun to full shade. The seeds that cacao essential oil is made from are delivered by the tree in the form of pods, which typically hold 40-50 individual seeds.

Cacao has a range of health benefits, including:
