Dragonfly Dreaming® came to life in 1996 with the birth of a wee red-headed baby girl. Concern that she might inherit her Scottish Daddy's sensitive skin led us to creating, from scratch, lovely things to use on her skin - all plant based, with no petrochemicals, preservatives, nut or animal oils. Thus, we created the cutting edge in truly natural organic body care because back then, there was NOTHING chemical-free on the market!
Although most people thought we were a little bonkers, we were absolutely certain that by blending the distinctly different healing traditions of herbalism & aromatherapy, we could create effective plant-based natural organic body care products for both body and spirit. It all began in the forest and the herb garden...
Educating people about the potential effects of using commercial (chemical) skin care has been a core value of our work since we began 23 years ago. Our mantra 'the skin is the outside of the in' fell on deaf ears for a very, very long time, so it's gratifying to see that people are beginning to realize that what you put on your skin really does matter!
We've been teaching workshops on scent, distillation and essential oils, natural perfume blending, herbalism and wildcrafting for the past two decades, and still try to work in a few sessions every summer. Check out our calendar, or give us a call if you'd like to join in.
Super organic ingredients and the healing traditions of many eras and cultures - infused with the sparkling cutting-edge twist and matchless quality of an obsessed perfectionist - it could only come from Dragonfly Dreaming®, Canada’s original Pioneer Au Naturel - organic alchemy for body & spirit, since 1996 - created by hand, by us, on Vancouver Island.
