Happy Winter Solstice!

Thank you to all our dear friends, customers and supporters! We send you wishes for a magical Winter Solstice and safe and joyous holiday season, wherever you may be. Here on Vancouver Island we've just been visited by the Snow Queen; I for one am glad she waited until this week to descend.  AND we have a winner! Our contest drew the name of subscriber Marion Giraud who also happens to live here on the Island. Congratulations Marion, that's a $50 gift certificate for you to help celebrate our 20+2nd anniversary!  More fun to come in the New Year ~ and meanwhile, all the best to all of you from Dragonfly and Ms. Kate xoxo  Our Cobble Hill Studio is open...

Bearded Wonders!

There’s no doubt about it, the beard has come to stay (for a while at least!). Whether you or a significant other in your life has been ready to ditch the blade and go au naturel, there’s this stage they call ‘scruff’… And that’s where Dragonfly Dreaming Organics Beard Oil comes into the story.

Along with our new label style, an upcoming broad sweep of the web site and whole new social media world? Oh MY!   Ms. Kate is now our Social Media / Style / Marketing Director, and the driving force behind the new look ('mini-boho' I'm told);  I hope you like it as much as we do! We spent August completely revamping our studio and here are a few snaps to share...  A hint of Pumpkin Spice Skin Sorbet - this Autumn's Theme Scent - with soap waiting to be wrapped to...

Skin Sorbet DOES for Dirt!

Here at Dragonfly Dreaming Organics, we are besotted with our latest creation, the 'Skin Sorbet' Whipped Sugar Scrubs to cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize. We had fun over the summer inventing a menu of new scents and names and sharing a whole lotta sweet scrubbing!  Dear Meghan said, "Dragonfly's Skin Sorbet is completely delicious skin food; you'll want to eat it with a spoon! Delightful scents and none of that artificial greasy layer you find in other products. Scrubs clean AND moisturizes - the best brand I've tried. Totally fun to use." And our friend Scott sent us his super story with the photos to back it up... "After working for 8 hours tearing down the remains of a house fire, I was dirty,...

Breaking News ~ Summer Hits Wet Coast ~

                                I was beginning to wonder if I'd slept for six months and we were heading into October... but finally, our winter skin is feeling the fresh air, sun and critters again, so it's time for Dragonfly's Summer Primer to keep you safe and sound!  Sunburn ~ if you've succumbed, the first thing you must do is cool your skin! Get into the water, take a cool shower, at the very least wrap-up in ice cubes!   Then apply Suns & Roses / Rose Petals Healing Salve ASAP ~ this balm is successful in treating third degree burns so sunburns (and windburns, too!) respond very well to it. It's available in a...
