Organic Vegan Chocolate ( We Like Lubeca)
Organic Peanut Butter
3 Tbsp White Chia Seeds
1.5 Cup Lemon Juice
3 Cups Frozen Organic Raspberries

Melt chocolate gently and pour into small cupcake or chocolate moulds, allow to set and release from moulds.

Spoon a little organic peanut butter into the base of each chocolate vessel.

Create a raspberry chia jam by blending the defrosted berries, lemon juice and chia. Leave to set for at least an hour. If the texture is too runny, add more chia seeds.

Spoon chia raspberry jam into the moulds and garnish with seasonal fruit.

    Drion NZ distribute sanitary pads and pantiliners that are anatomically designed for health conscious women. Our Sydney based parent company, Drion AU is 100% Australian owned with state of the art production facilities and a research and development department that is among the best in the industry. View and Purchase Online

    Drion sanitary products are hypoallergenic, ultra-absorbent and technologically advanced, and support menstrual comfort. They contain a green strip infused with far infrared rays and negative ions. Drion sanitary products also help minimise odours.

    Invisible to the human eye, far infrared rays produce gentle energetic vibrations (over 30 per second) that create warmth supporting healthy metabolism in tissues and cells.

    Derived from the Greek word meaning up, negative ions are atoms with more electrons than protons. They are thought to have unique properties and are believed to support energy levels and positive mood.

    Negative ions are abundant in natural environments such as the oceans, rivers, waterfalls, mountains, forests and after meteorological events such as lightning storms.

    Conversely cations, atoms with more protons than electrons, are prevalent in man made environments such as homes, shopping malls and workplaces where computers, smart phones, wi-fi networks, artificial lighting and microwaves are commonplace. Cations can contribute to feelings of lethargy, tiredness and irritability.

    In every Drion sanitary pad and liner there is a green strip that contains over 6100 negative ions per cubic centimetre. When this strip comes into contact with menstrual blood, it releases negative ions that may support wellbeing.

    Tampons block the natural downward and outward flow of menstrual blood, causing the blood to back-up and stagnate, which often contribute to discomfort .

    Tampons can also leak toxic chemicals and on removal leave fibres behind in the vagina. They also dry out the lubricating and self-cleaning fluids that the vagina naturally produces, and cause micro tears in the vaginal canal, making it vulnerable to bacterial infection.

    The vagina is without doubt the most absorbent and sensitive part of a women’s body, so for good menstrual health don’t use tampons – even organic ones.

    Hygienically wrapped and sealed in organic paper, Drion organic sanitary products pose no toxic threat to women or the environment, and unlike most competitors’ products, they are recyclable and compostable under the correct conditions.

    Drion sanitary products are free from the myriad of chemicals and potential allergens used by most other brands. These nasties include artificial dyes, chlorine, dioxins, GMO’s, rayon, viscose, carbon disulphide, sulphuric acid, phthalates, pesticides and herbicides, odour neutralizers and synthetic adhesives.

    Drion sanitary products contain organic pine resin polymers and an organic food grade natural starch adhesive which are both 100% biodegradable. View and Purchase Online

    Drion sanitary products contain a green strip with Negative Ions and Far I-R. Drion NZ does not directly claim the products improve women’s health due to the Negative Ions and Far I-R as we don’t have the scientific research to substantiate such a claim. Drion do have tests to prove the green strip contains Negative Ions and Far I-R but nothing which specifically points to any health benefits being a direct result of any one of the elements within the products.
