Deriving from the Aztec word “xocoatl,” chocolate had its beginnings in Pre-Columbian Mesoamerica as a bitter drink brewed from cacao beans. The Latin name for the cacao tree, Theobroma cacao, means “food of the gods,” mirroring the Aztec belief that the cacao tree was brought from Paradise as a gift from the god Quetzalcoatl, who carried it to Earth on a beam of the Morning Star. Both the Maya and the Aztec believed chocolate had divine properties, and often used it as a component in their most sacred rituals. Only elite members of society were allowed to consume such a powerful drink.
Premium Fragrance Notes
All our synthetic fragrance notes are premium grade, alcohol-free, phthalate-free, and undiluted. We work hard to ensure that your perfume ingredients are top-quality, highly concentrated, and will mix neatly with both alcohol and oil bases. These are not ready to wear as fragrances – they MUST be diluted before applying directly to skin. It is always a good idea to do a patch test for allergies, with both natural and synthetic materials. And of course – do not eat the oils. No matter how yummy they may smell.
Note: Although these are phthalate-free, they are NOT non-toxic. Don't eat them. Don't drink them. Patch test on skin. Dilute before wearing.
