Some kind of a business trip

2 months ago

I am on a mission to get my little dog home from LA and when I signed up for the mission to be a dog- mama a few months back I didn’t realise how hard it would be to get her home to Sweden. I figured I would just take a weekend over to LA and bring her home and completely forgot that the US is not letting europeans in unless we go stay 2 weeks in a non EU country..so silly but so is a lot of things right now so now when my peak season over in my wild apple meadow retreat I finally got a chance to peace out from Sweden for a few weeks.

And what place would I chose to spend 2 weeks “quarantining” in than Guatemala of course?! Anything else would be stupidities.

Me and my friend and now also business partner Erika took the chance to come over here to work on our new cacao blends that we will soon be launching under our new cacao brand that will just be tooo amazing. We are so excited and you will be soon too.

Ah so happy to be back into these healing mountains of Lake Atitlan and to finally be able to bring Erika as well, so dreamy.

What better way to celebrate a birthday than a traditional cacao ceremony

Izaias is an amazing cacao shaman that does very spot on readings and ceremonies that I can highly recommend if you ever come here.

Here he is blowing the sacred tobacco for prayers and healing.

Did you know that tobacco is a very sacred and holy plant but got abused and became toxic cigarettes? Similar with cacao- its a sacred plant medicine that got abused and turned into cheap chocolates- and the list can go on..

We released a lot of stuff into this fire that day..

We got to sing some kirtan of course..no visit to the lake without it even if my favourite one got cancelled which was slightly heartbreaking..

New favourite breakfast spot- the farm.

And we did a little cacao photoshoot in our friend Hannas magical cups. She is based in Rio and the logistics seem to be working so so which is sad cause we really want to sell her cups in Sweden but you can at least check out her website and dream yourself away.

More cacao at my favourite place- the woman’s collective where I source most of my cacao from. SO excited to be sharing pictures from this day later on.

Ok upon request on what I do to keep my immune system on top when I travel: Zink, Vitamin D, Vitamin C- preferably from a natural source though, a garlic clove a day, D- Mannose for UTIs, and a really good probiotic. This I don’t compromise on.

If I have access to a stove I also make a decoction of elderberry, echinacea, liquorice root and ginger if I feel I need a really good boost.
