A delightful fragrant plant based, GF dessert made using Anuma mundi Apothecary Rose powder as the main ingredient for the tart filling & Suma powder used in the cacao and pecan raw base. Along with the dessert I created a cherry & raspberry CBD infused syrup to plate.

ROSE




"Rose petals and their medicine help to move and open a heart which has tightened emotionally and spiritually.  In both Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and the Unani (Greek-Arabic medicine) traditions, the heart is believed to be a physical organ and the seat of consciousness.  TCM uses the term shen, while Unani medicine talks about pneuma.   Both schools teach that rose has a powerful affect on the spiritual state of one’s heart.  Unani medicine has a category of heart herbs termed as “exhilarants”, which help the spiritual heart feel joy.  Rose is considered both a shen tonic in TCM and an exhilarant in Unani medicine.



A wonderful nervine, great for uplifting the mood and alleviating depression, rose also has antispasmodic, aphrodisiac and sedative qualities, as well as being anti-inflammatory.  Rose helps regulate menstruation as well as stimulate the digestion. "

SUMA



"In South America suma is known as para toda (which means "for all things") and as Brazilian ginseng, since it is widely used as an adaptogen with many applications (much as "regular" ginseng). The indigenous peoples of the Amazon region who named it para todahave used suma root for generations for a wide variety of health purposes, including as a general tonic; as an energy, rejuvenating, and sexual tonic; and as a general cure-all for many types of illnesses. Suma has been used as an aphrodisiac, a calming agent, and to treat ulcers for at least 300 years. It is an important herbal remedy in the folk medicine of several rainforest Indian tribes today."


"In herbal medicine throughout the world today, suma is considered a tonic and an adaptogen. The herbal definition of an adaptogen is a plant that increases the body's resistance to adverse influences by a wide range of physical, chemical, and biochemical factors and has a normalizing or restorative effect on the body as a whole. In modern Brazilian herbal medicine practices, suma root is employed as a cellular oxygenator and taken to stimulate appetite and circulation, increase estrogen production, balance blood sugar levels, enhance the immune system, strengthen the muscular system, and enhance memory."
