This medicine was created to support you in taking time to create a warm quiet place in with to go within, listen deeply, and enjoy your own company. Since Kava can be relaxing, it may be tempting to try working with this medicine reduce stress in public settings. We strongly discourage this approach with this blend. We further do not recommend working with Kava while outside in nature in the fall and winter seasons, or when using spa, sauna, or other modalities that may effect blood pressure and involve extreme temperature fluctuations. Kava will naturally bring your blood flow and conscious awareness into the core of your being, into the Yogini’s cave of the heart, womb or prostate, where subtle yet powerful magic is always percolating just below the surface of our conscious awareness. In the above described less-than-ideal settings, this movement of energy may result in cold, tingling or numbness in the extremities or mild feelings of irritability.
Vaporizable Kava concentrate
Through a series of synchronistic events, we were brought into alliance with a small local group of artisan woodworkers called Magic-Flight. Best known for their much loved handheld vaporizers, they have also locally crafted a one of a kind Kava concentrate to be used in combination with their other products. The Kava sourced for this unique form of kava has been fairly traded and sustainably harvested by expert Hawaiian Kava farmers. The mature roots are then extracted locally in a small local lab, using technology which is primarily used for creating legal medical Marijuana concentrates.
It is not uncommon for people in traditional Kava cultures to consume upwards of 2000 mg of kava per day for many years on end. Part of what makes our Kava concentrate so unique is that for the first time, people are able to enjoy Kava via vapor inhalation. Consuming Kava in pill or tea form requires an amount of between 70 and 200 mg per cup, most of which is lost to the digestive system's processes. Vaporization allows for the full therapeutic effect to be felt immediately, at microscopic doses (around 9 mg.) This makes it significantly safer, more efficient way to enjoy the many benefits of Kava.
"I really enjoyed the earthy taste and feeling of relaxation and well-being I experience after having Kava Concentrate. I have tried Kava tea before, and found I had to wait a half an hour or more to feel any effect. I felt the effects of this concentrate right away. I am especially enjoying how Kava allows me to be more present and available for friends and family, allowing me to approach the present moment in a less goal oriented, more exploratory way. It does not seem to impart any unusual or new personality traits, just a feeling of clarity and acceptance of things being good enough just as they are.” ~Mara, 41, San Diego, CA

There is a good chance it may experience temperature fluctuations that cause it to melt and reconstitute in the mailing process. If that happens, you will want to warm the jar just enough to melt and stir it well to re-destribute the medicine evenly and keep the dosage accurate, stirring it a few times as it cools to prevent having all of the kava settle to the bottom.
