Two weekends ago we went to the jungle to look for duck flowers and we got incredibly lucky to find a few. Duck flowers also, know as "the duck," are the beautiful, magnificent flowers that bloom on the contribo vine, occasionally ingested to detoxify the body. They are famously used at Honduran herbalist Dr. Sebi's "Usha Village" in Honduras for that purpose, but the plant is found throughout Central America, particularly the jungles of Belize where we often wildcraft. But they can be incredibly hard to locate and are a very rare find, even when you know where to look.
Dr. Sebi, who calls the flowers "a very immediate and strong cleanser" talks about his experience ingesting "the duck" in this video. He mentions that he liked to collect "the ducks" and dry them and make duck flower powder from the dried flowers to create an herbal compound with it consisting of the duck flower, guaco, sarsasparilla and cordoncillo negro. We currently have both duck flower powder and guaco in stock. Cordoncillo negro is coming soon. We will also have more duck flower leaves too.
No sooner had we told a few people we had a few ducks, we got offers to buy and so before we had time to make an announcement about our ducks, they have now sold out! We do have a small amount of duck flower powder left and we will be going out to look for more "ducks," soon and will update the website when more arrive.. Wish us luck!
This past weekend we went out and harvested some sour sop leaves and they are now drying (see photo) in preparation to be mailed out.
Sour sop is one of the very best things to consume on a daily basis because it keeps you cancer and parasite free. It also normalizes blood pressure and blood sugar levels. It tastes like green tea and has no side effects at all. It's safe to consume for long periods of time and provides a bevy of nutrients. It's even safe for children and breastfeeding mothers.
In addition to the leaves we also have powder, tea bags and capsules. If you're treating a serious condition like cancer, high blood pressure or diabetes, we suggest the capsules and the powder to make sure you're getting all of the plant's constituents. For maintenance of health, boiling the leaves or steeping the tea bags is fine.
