Maguey (pronounced mah-gay) Sweet Sap is obtained from the maguey plant that is native to the arid highlands of Mexico.

Since ancient times, the maguey plant has served as a source of nourishment, shelter and textiles for the people of Mexico. The Aztecs worshipped the maguey as the goddess Mayahuel, naming it the Plant of the Gods because of its alleged medicinal properties.

The sacred maguey plant serves as a soil protector and regenerator, helping to prevent erosion and acting as a natural healing agent for the land.
