Bois Bande Bark
WHAT IS BOIS BANDE?
Bois Bande “Bwa Bande”, loosely translated from French or creole means “Hard Wood”. This is a globally reputed natural aphrodisiac which can be found in some islands of the Caribbean. It is the bark of the tree, a large tree that grows in the rainforest and its bark is dried and used as bark pieces or ground into a powder. Bois Bande has been used for generations as a sexual enhancer, believed to prolong sexual prowess in both male and female.
Our brand (SPICE CARIBBEAN) , is purported to be the best of three botanical species (Richeria Grandis). The other species are Parinari campestris and Roupala montana. Grenada’s Bois Bande comes from the mountains of its verdant rainforest and is free of pesticides or chemical interference. The product is sustainably harvested manually by farmers, no machines involved and no damage to the ecosystem. This is a natural product, however you are always advised to check your medical professional before using even natural products.
HOW DO I USE THIS PRODUCT?
Bois Bande is usually drawn as a tea or infused in alcohol. The objective is to extract the active resin.
DRAW AS A TEA:
Boil about quarter ounce of bark per cup of water, you can adjust to your own strength and taste as you get used to the product. You can and milk and/or sugar, honey, Agave, Stevia etc to taste (optional).
Bois Bande can also be paired with Mauby Bark to make a refreshing and stimulating beverage.
Drop about 2 ounces powder or bark (increase for stronger brew) into a 750ml bottle of alcohol. A plain clear/white Bacardi, vodka or similar is recommended as it allows one to see the progress as the Bois Bande resin infuses the alcohol. We recommend Grenada’s Clarke’s Court, Jamaica’s Wrey & Nephew or Bacardi white , but any scentless white rum is fine.
The alcohol should change color from clear to tan and then deeper shades of brown depending on how much Bois Bande is added.
BARK VERSUS POWDER?
The bark pieces and the ground bark have the same potency; no additives – just natural bark or in granular form. The bark pieces are popularly used in alcohol, displayed similar to the Mamajuana product from the Dominican Republic. The powder can also be used in alcohol, and is also popularly used in smoothies. Please note the ground Bois Bande is not soluble so some straining is necessary or recommended.
Additionally Bois Bande is used by some to season and marinate exotic meats.
