  1. I haven’t bought any because we have a lot already. I’ve seen cuttings for sale in some of the farming groups I’ve joined on Facebook. I It’s pretty easy to grow, but you won’t able to harvest the leaves until the plants start growing. Here are some links:

    Some guy selling a madre de cacao-based spray for dogs (mange). I don’t know him and have not tried his product! Just happened to see it on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1510602539189919&set=pb.100007205619862.-2207520000.1417851487.&type=3&theater

    An old ad from a Facebook farming group. I personally know the seller Maila Vilela-Toreja: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10151265377252318&set=gm.436359713067265&type=1&theater

    Hope this helps!

    1. Hi Aries, according to the link to Tropical Forages (at the top of my article), it’s used as a feed for cows but they may not accept it if they are used to other feeds. I haven’t tried it myself because I don’t have cows. My horses don’t eat it.

  2. hi! they say it is a treatment for dogs who has mange. but I don’t know how to apply it to my dog who has mange. can you please teach me how to apply it to my dog? because we have already try the soap for dogs who has mange but it didn’t work. can you please help me?

    1. Hi Tracy! My friend tried it on her puppy that had mange. She said to just boil the leaves and then use the water to bathe the dog. She also said that even better than the madre de cacao water was used cooking oil applied to the skin of the dog. It suffocates the mange organism. I’m not sure if the oil has to be ‘used” because she also said that coconut oil should work just as well, but the dog kept licking it and she was worried that it would attract insects. Hope your dog gets well.
