Our Aloe Vera grows for four to five years in the warm, damp tropics of Ecuador. Then it proudly displays its majestic aloe vera leaves. It thrives superbly in this potent site that alternates between high-energy light and shadowy coolness. Every single plant leaf is then carefully and lovingly harvested by hand and the ripened gel is gently pressed out of the dark-green leaves. In this way, the entire life force of our Sacred Plants is preserved. We also respect the moon cycles when harvesting. Energy and essential power grow with the plants and supply palpable strength and vitality to our Green Luxury natural products.
Black sesame seeds
The wonderful sesame plant grows between one and three metres high. Its elongated green leaves with thimble-like flowers taper forward to a point. After three months of growing and maturing, the sesame plant is ready to release its treasure: small black oleiferous sesame seeds. Now the ripe seeds fall out and are gathered. Our sesame plants are able to store a particularly large amount of light energy, which is why harvesting rituals have always been very important in traditional cultures. In this way, the sesame plant is respected, at the material and physical level, and its life force is also respected at the mental and spiritual level.
Our babaco papaya is a real heroine from Ecuador’s mountains. The trees grow high in the Andes, at an altitude of 3,500 metres, on extremely fertile volcanic soil steeped in light energy – biophotons. The babaco papaya is very much at home here. This fertile soil contains minerals and trace elements that are rarely found in our soils these days. An incredibly broad spectrum of nutrients containing a remark-able variety of natural components for a healthy life. All of these plants and their fruits absorb the many nutrients from the fertile soil and develop their many talents under the best climatic conditions.
The annatto tree plays an important role in the everyday life of indigenous peoples. It illustrates their familiarity with the ecosystems in which they live, and how they respect and preserve Mother Earth. The annatto tree is an evergreen shrub and can grow to a height of up to 10 metres. Its bushy foliage is densely adorned with lus-trous white blossoms and heart-shaped, bright red seed capsules. The indigenous people of the Amazon cherish the red annatto seeds for their protective properties against exposure to sunlight and insects. Used for colouring clothing and food, they also have a firm place in the traditional herbal medicine of Latin America.
Known as the “Mushroom of immortality” in traditional Chinese philosophy, Reishi is one of the oldest and most effective natural remedies. We learned a great deal about special medicinal plants from the indigenous peoples, healers and shamans in Ne-pal. This is when we discovered the reishi fungus. They all agreed: the 5000-year-old doctrine of Ayurveda, Tibetan philosophy and Chinese medicinal lore: reishi is the fungus for longevity and a holistic food. Hippocrates – ancient physician, 460-375 BC – said it like this: “Let your food be your medicine.”
