The kava-kava plant, has been used by native people from New Guinea to Australia for centuries. The traditional drink, as drunk in the Western Pacific, is brewed from the juice of the roots.
It is mainly consumed as a ceremonial drink at religious and cultural events and served as a calming and balancing agent. The herb is also known to have a strong relieving effect for those experiencing restlessness and anxiety, hence the traditional Indonesian name: Kava Kava - The Drink of Peace.
