Everyone loves the effects — and the aroma — of Foria Awaken. But have you ever wondered why Awaken works?
Meet master herbalist Marysia Miernowska. Not only is she the founder of a permaculture and herbalism school, she is also the formulator of our Awaken recipe.
In this video, Marysia discusses the origins of Awaken, and the synergy of its 8 all-natural ingredients in creating heightened pleasure, wetness, and diminished discomfort...
Every ingredient in the formula for Awaken has a purpose, and all 8 ingredients have long histories as traditional aphrodisiacs across cultures.
Awaken’s star ingredient is the revered South Pacific herb Kava Kava (which stimulates the same pleasure-enhancing receptors as the THC in our other formula, Foria Pleasure). Similar to Cannabis, Kava is an anti-anxiety herb that creates feelings of relaxation & bliss. Used topically on the gentials, Kava absorbs rapidly to create soothing aphrodisiac effects.
Awaken also includes full-spectrum CBD from sun-grown Colorado hemp. CBD has numerous beneficial effects — including decrease in muscular tension, enhanced blood flow and decreased pain signaling.
But these potent herbal ingredients aren't the only things in Awaken.
The formula is rounded out with a variety of essential oils & botanical extracts, chosen not only for their aroma & flavor but for their synergy with the phyto-cannabinoids in Hemp and Kava. Scientists call this synergy "the entourage effect."
Polarity is another important quality of Foria Awaken. Ingredients like Ginger & Cinnamon warm and support heightened blood flow, while Peppermint creates a cooling effect. This combination stimulates nerve endings — gently heightening somatic awareness and sensation in the genitals.
