What is Kava? Kava is a drink made from the roots of the piper methysticum plant that is known for its calming, euphoric effects. This plant grows natively in the Islands of the South Pacific (Hawaii, Fiji, Tonga, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, etc) and has been used ceremonially for thousands of years as a way of promoting peace, friendship and a higher state of consciousness. Once you try it you'll see why kava is becoming the new beverage of choice at many alternative bars across the country.

Kava produces a mild, relaxing effect that calms the body yet doesn’t produce a hangover. (YAY!) Why we drink Kava? My husband and I discovered kava to be an excellent replacement for alcohol/anxiety/ depression meds we were using. We started experiencing the negative effects from these substances and decided to give kava a try. It has quickly become our beverage of choice. Instead of nursing a hangover on Saturday/Sunday mornings, we feel great and are able to enjoy our healthy, active lifestyle.

Kava naturally tastes earthy/bitter so that is why we created Kava Koncoctions....to make it taste DELICIOUS. Prefer your kava straight? Ask about our 1/2 & full lb kava kits. BULA!! (Bula is the Fijian word meaning “to life, health & happiness”. This word is said in place of “cheers” when toasting with kava.)
