BOIS BANDE - GROUND (12 Oz in resealable pouch) product of Grenada
Product of Grenada, Caribbean
Bois Bande "hard wood" is the natural bark of a tree by the same name. This tree is found in Grenada and some other Caribbean islands. Our Bois Bande is 100% natural, no alterations or additives.
There are no documented harmful side effects, however we suggest use in moderation as there is anecdotal evidence of some users having a "really hard time" (pun intended) because they used too much or too concentrated.
Although this product is popular for its sexual potency, it is believed to have other great values such as blood purification, promotion of good blood flow (of course), and is also said to combat urinary tract infections.
Typically used in alcohol or drawn as a hot beverage.
Add approximately 1.5 to 2 Oz powder or bark to 1 Litre white rum. We recommend white rum because you will be able to see the progress when the color changes different shades of brown as the resin from the Bois Bande mixes into the alcohol. Let stand for at least 1-4 weeks, bearing in mind the longer its aged the better the resulting product. The bark takes longer to infuse, directions using the bark would show a longer wait before use.
AS A HOT BEVERAGE:
Place one leveled teaspoon ground or two pieces bark into a cup of boiled or hot water or milk, let steep for about 10 minutes, strain or filter, add sugar, honey or other sweetener to taste, and drink.
