The new moon marks a special time for reflection, allowing us to center ourselves on new beginnings and fresh goals. For those who, like me, find solace in holding space for the new moon and setting intentions, incorporating a moment of intentionality becomes a cherished ritual.

In preparation for your new moon cacao ceremony, it's worthwhile to explore additions that can elevate the properties of your cacao, creating a richer and more profound experience. In this post, let's delve into a New Moon Cacao Recipe.

One particular herb intricately linked to new beginnings, intuition, and spiritual growth is mugwort. Revered across various cultures for its mystical properties, mugwort is believed to amplify dreams, enhance intuition, and foster inner reflection. Infusing a small amount of dried mugwort into your ceremonial cacao during the new moon becomes a symbolic gesture—a celebration of embracing the journey of self-discovery
