The vanilla bean plant grows in Mexico, the Caribbean and South America. Natives indigenous to the region understood the special qualities of vanilla for many centuries. When the Europeans arrived, they soon discovered the amazing plant, its medicinal uses and how to use it with food and beverages.
Other than its near ubiquitous use in many baked goods, vanilla was used for centuries to help heal wounds. It can also be used to relieve mild anxiety, and many tales from as far back as the Aztecs purport the bean is a powerful male aphrodisiac and also assists with weight loss.
These brass beauties are the perfect representation of this adorable bean. Adorn yourself in nature with this very unique combination of earrings with matching necklace! They are in the shop today! COOL BEANS!!
