'Freedom and love go together. Love is not a reaction. If I love you because you love me, that is mere trade, a thing to be bought in the market; it is not love. To love is not to ask anything in return, not even to feel that you are giving something - and it is only such love that can know freedom.' - Jiddu Krishnamurti

Homemade Pau D'arco Iced Tea is a great summer drink that contains many health benefits! A native to South America, Pau d’arco (Tabebuia avellanedae) has been used as an herbal remedy for candida, viruses (such as polio and influenza), arthritis, diabetes, parasites, bacteria, liver problems, fevers, venereal and rheumatic disorders, skin disorders (such as eczema) and more! Scientists have identified two major (active) chemicals in the inner part of its bark- lapachol and beta lapachone. Lapachol is a compound known to be resistant to viruses, bacteria, and fungus. Pau D'arco herbs have the ability to detoxify the body, particularly the kidneys, liver and intestinal tract. Check out our recipe below on how to make 'sweetened' Pau D'arco Iced Tea. Enjoy!
