Kava kava is a traditional herb native to the Pacific Islands where it has been used as a social and ceremonial drink, and for its healthful properties. Piper methysticum’s history of use spans at least three thousand years. Today, herbalists enjoy the plant as an ally to support natural relaxation. Kava kava root is typically prepared as a decoction and can also be used in tincturing.

There are many folk tales about the origin of kava kava, but most rely on a central theme that involves the first plant growing on the grave of someone who had been sacrificed. Drinking the traditional kava drink is thought to symbolically turn the drinker into a sacrificial victim. Kava kava has traditionally been used and continues to flourish as a ceremonial beverage.
