The favourite medicine of the Kallawaya shaman healers, Pau d’Arco (Lapacho), also called “TEA OF INCAS”, is made from the bark of the purple Lapacho tree which grows high up in the Andes.
Lapacho has been used for 1000’s of years by South and Central American indigenous peoples to treat a number of ailments including infection, fever and stomach complaints. It is known to have immune system boosting benefits and apparently has been found to be effective against some kinds of cancer.
Our Lapacho is Ethically Sourced and is in the form of pure bark. It has a uniquely barky(?) yet pleasant scented taste and is best prepared by boiling 1 heaped tablespoon per 500ml water fo 5 minutes, then sweetened with honey.
