Our Story

Herbal Cacao is created out of a deep pasion to share the nourishing and healing powers of the sacred cacao plant, medicinal mushrooms and adaptogenic herbs.

Our roots run deep in reverence for Mother Nature and the Maya culture, who worship cacao as femeninne spirit ‘Ixcacao’. Our journey is infused with her essence,  empowering spiritual growth and support you to open up to the wisdom of your heart.

We honour the Maya culture’s commitment to supporting communities ethically, where everyone prospers, extending this value throughout our entire supply chain

Through our unique, powerful blends, we contribute to your conscious and healthy lifestyle, inviting you to join us on this transformative path.”

Meet Our Founder

Free spirited as she is, Sharon spread her wing by the age of 18 and left her Motherland,– the Netherland. She travelled to al corners of the world, and felt deeply in love when arriving to the the ancient Maya Land. 3 years she lived there deepening her connection to the plant medicine of cacao and the Maya Culture. It was here where her vision of Herbal Cacao was created, but it wasn’t until she returned to the Netherlands to be closer to her sick father, to start building her dream. Later she learned from the Maya elders, that it was her Nawal Tz’ikin asking her to step into her mission and claim her souls path.

“It has become my mission to share my knowledge and to let the world experience the powerful effects of these sacred plants by combining the nutritional and spiritual world. To support you on conscious healthy lifestyle and on your path of self and spiritual discovery. Bringing together the ancient wisdom of the indigenous tribes and our modern Western world.”
