We got a call from a customer asking us to clarify if our kalawalla powder is made from the leaves or from the roots. It's interesting that the question would come in now. Until recently we only carried the roots and yes our powder is 100% kalawalla roots--no leaves or other filler. The Mayans use the roots or more accurately the rhizomes for medicinal purposes, and the caller mentioned that the roots, specifically helped with his Crohn's disease, which is an autoimmune disorder. This plant is pretty amazing. The roots are considered to be more potent than the leaves. But we have the leaves too and they are used to make medicinal tea just like the roots, Our newly-harvested kalawalla leaves have completed the drying process (see photo above) and are ready to order and ship directly to you. And we'd love to hear from you. Call us at 305-668-0360 and if we don't answer, leave a message as we're probably out wildcrafting. Cheers!
We commune with lizards. Lizards are everywhere in Belize and it's almost impossible to keep them out. And they make the most delightful cackling noise, like laughing. This one doesn't even run from me anymore he just sits there while I look at him. He knows I'm talking about him too. Ha ha.
