Hawaiian Lavender Chocolate Gift Basket
The Collection: This stunning collection includes a handcrafted 2.1oz Dark Milk & Lavender Chocolate Bar, a 4oz Hawaiian Lavender Body Butter and a 4oz Hawaiian Lavender Body Polish--all presented in a bow-tied traditional Hawaiian lauhala gift basket (ribbon varies).
The Lauhala Gift Basket: In Old Hawaii, the leaves or "lau" were handwoven to create functional items such as hats, canoe sails, mats and baskets. Today, Hawaiians still enjoy using lauhala baskets for gift giving.
The Chocolate: Hawaiian Lavender grows In the Upcountry region of Maui nestled in the slopes of Haleakala. This 60% Dark Chocolate bar is infused with edible dried lavender from upcountry Maui, giving this chocolate just the right amount of floral flavor. Each bar is crafted from ethically sourced cacao and the highest quality ingredients.
The Story of Hawaiian Lavender: Lavender has been valued by royalty in Hawaii since the 1800’s. Island Essence continues the tradition and blends, pours, and packages all Hawaiian Lavender hand cleansing sprays, lotion, soaps, oils, mists, candles, and other botanicals in their factory on Maui.
The Story of Cacao: Hawaii is the only state in the U.S. with a climate appropriate for cultivating the tropical fruit tree Theobroma Cacao. The Bean to Bar is a movement in the chocolate industry where the finest quality dried beans are crafted into chocolate under one roof. As well as emphasizing quality over quantity, bean to bar chocolate makers like Manoa are defined by direct trade with cacao farms across the world, paying socially responsible prices.
