FAQ's - Blessed & Gifted Products


We ethically source our Calabash from farmers and smallholders in Jamaica who respect the time-honored method of organically cultivating, harvesting, and preparing the ripe Calabash fruit by hand. Without detriment to the health of the tree, the environment, or by exploiting animals.

What is a Calabash?

As one of the first ever cultivated, sustainable crops, Calabash were prized by our ancestors for their reliability, versatility, longevity, and hard-wearing nature as a storage vessel. These amazing natural features make Calabash bowls just as relevant, useful, and sought after in the eco-friendly home today.

Made by nature. Biodegradable and free from chemicals and toxins. Our Calabash bowls are ideal for ensuring indoor and outdoor food adventures are always filled with style and panache!

What Size Calabash Bowl Should You Choose?

Our SMALL Calabash Bowls hold roughly 2 cups of food - They are ideal for small meals, snacks and (toddlers to tweens) child sized portions.

Our MEDIUM Calabash Bowls hold roughly 3 cups of food - They are ideal for teenagers and adult sized portions, snacks and used as a serving dish.

Our LARGE Calabash Bowls hold roughly 4 cups of food - They are ideal for Buddha bowl enthusiasts, hungry teenagers and adult sized portions, snacks and can be used as a serving and sharing dish.

Our EXTRA LARGE Calabash Bowls hold roughly 5 cups of food - They are ideal for holding a full meal, a hearty bowl of soup, porridge, fruit salad, snacks and can be used as a serving and sharing dish.

**The average Coconut Bowl only holds between 2 1/4 to 2 1/2 cups of food in comparison.**

How to use and care for your Calabash Bowl:

We would NOT recommend putting your Calabash bowl in a dishwasher, microwave, oven, fridge, or freezer. But it IS perfectly equipped and capable of showcasing your mind-blowing Buddha Bowl, Nice Cream, or hot Soup to perfection.

After use, simply wash the Calabash in warm soapy water and drain upside down until dry. We doubt you will be storing your Calabash Bowl in the cupboard, as the custom hand-carving makes a stunning display piece and you will be reaching for it again as soon as you’re hungry anyhow!

Custom Calabash Bowls

Calabash are made by nature, growing naturally in a variety of shapes, sizes, textures, and colors, whilst some have unique little bumps, dimples, and scars. Every one of them is slightly different, with its own outstanding beauty and star qualities, just like you.
