Product Details

Kava Kava (Piper methysticum), AKA Ava, Ave Pepper, Ava root, & Awa root or simply kava, boasts a rich history in the Pacific Islands. Traditionally, the ground or chewed root of the kava plant is used to create a beverage consumed during ceremonies and social gatherings.

Medicinally, kava has been used for centuries to address anxiety and stress. Studies suggest it may be more effective than a placebo for short-term anxiety relief. Kavalactones, the active ingredients in kava, are believed to interact with the nervous system to produce calming effects and is reputed to make an excellent aphrodisiac. However, it's important to note that potential liver damage has been linked to kava consumption, so consulting with a healthcare professional before use is crucial.

While not exactly a culinary herb in the strictest sense, kava does hold a place in some Pacific Island traditions. The prepared kava beverage has a distinctive peppery flavor and may be consumed during celebrations or cultural events. However, its primary purpose is not for taste but rather for its social and medicinal properties.

Kava also holds a place in certain magickal traditions. Some believe it can promote relaxation and meditation, making it a potential aid in rituals or spells.
