Vanilla

Vanilla was first derived from a Mexican species of orchid. Hernán Cortés (Spanish conquistador) is credited with introducing both vanilla and chocolate to Europe in the 1500’s. Interestingly, vanilla needs to be pollinated and grows beautifully when wrapped around a cacao tree. Chocolate and vanilla make the perfect pair.

Physically, vanilla helps regulate mensuration, relieve nausea, ease stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia, heal wounds, lower blood pressure, and enhance libido.

Avocado

Avocado along with vanilla, for their calming properties help to release emotional tension. Avocado strengthens the emotional body, open the heart and solar plexus chakra, and promote a sense of ease when learning new concepts. Physically, avocado helps to prevent bad breath, improve heart health, aid in digestion, increase feelings of satiety, relieve nausea, and improve skin health.
