As in all things life changes. Some years back I took my 94 year old mother to Greece as it is where she wished to pass. A week into being in Greece I had a hiking accident and could not travel for 2 years. My dad had told me the herbs of Kalymnos were unique and this is how this next chapter begins. During the time I could not travel so as not to be a drain on Essencial Dreams, I started something similar in Kalymnos, a little island in the Southern Aegean where my DNA root is from. There I created my own extracts using Grape Alcohol rather than grain or potato, used the herbs and medicinals of the island and found the magic that is Kalymnos. Herbs of unsurpassed strength due to the harsh growing conditions. The herbs were exceptionally strong, and I followed my own medicine path creating tinctures and extracts that are second to none. You see we age them for a minimum of 3 months compared to the norm of 2 weeks, what come out is like comparing Tea to Espresso. I like Espresso, much stronger so it works better.
Now more can be read further in the site but I find myself still in Greece so shipping from Essencial Dreams will be from Greece and there is a trick to shipping. You do not want to buy 1 or 2 items from Essencial Dreams use Essencial Dreams Denise for that, she ships from North Carolina, I ship from Greece. Initial cost is high 35 Euros about $40 but that covers 500grams or about 1 pound, after that additional 500grams is about 5-6 euros. So the more you buy the better the shipping works out. Now thing is this shipping is FAST. About a week to your door, where Post from Greece might be less but wait is a month or more. So shipping is my Courier, it arrives to you as Express Mail!
Please feel free to use the contact us in our sites to communicate with us. Personally I love hearing from our customers oh and Essencial Dreams products can be customized for your needs since we make what we sell. A word about our supplements, they are 100% all of the herb NO FILLERS so they are potent and work exceptionally well. Vegetarian 00 Capsules and same is true for all our products completely free of any animal products. They are fresh usually no more than 90 days from becoming encapsulated. They work since the herbs are either Organically cultivated but usually they are Wild Crafted by us.
How we got here?
Our humble beginning in the Spring of 1986 where we began offering handmade incenses, ceremonial and wild crafted medicinal herbs that we gathered as we traveled setting up our booth at Native American Festivals and Pow Wows. From there, we progressed to tinctures, extracts, herbal salves, lip balms, herbal tea blends, fair trade coffee and simple natural cosmetics. As time went on we learned more, refined our products always striving to be better and more effective. When the time was right, traditional herbal knowledge met up with scientific experience and together in collaboration, new, effective products were born. Embracing a holistic approach, we developed cosmetic and therapeutic products for transforming the body and soul, redefining the Art of Cosmetics.
Our products are made with the finest organic or wild crafted ingredients which we gather, respectfully and responsibly, to create our own bases, tinctures and extracts made with organic grape alcohol and our own herbal infusions using cold pressed oils. We combine pure organic essential oils while making our own floral and herbal hydrosols to insure our products are as pure and effective as they can be.
We incorporate 3 arts in our products: Aromatherapy, selecting the essential oils for each product based on their therapeutic values and the fact that they smell divine is an extra bonus. Phytotherapy, from which we get our Phyto nutrients which the body easily absorbs and uses without side effects, that chemical counterparts are well known for. Last we use Homeopathy, (low doses homeopathic solutions like Bach Flower Remedies) which give energy and life to the products. This Wholistic combination results in products that balance our bodies and retunes our aura. The more you use our products the more you'll notice a happier and healthier you.
Wild crafted herbs are gathered in their right time in the Appalachian Mountains, here in Western North Carolina, and from the mountains of Kalymnos, Greece where pollution just simply doesn't exist. There is no industry, on this beautiful little island in the Southern Aegean, where our sister company Vitae Value (Value of Life) with identical products exists.
Our Shampoos, Body Washes and Facial Cleansers are SLS and Paraben Free. You'll never find artificial colors or fragrance oils and the Only Animals we test on is Ourselves.
We personally use all our own natural body care and aromatherapy products on a daily basis, as we do our handmade incenses, wild crafted and organically grown herbs.
Our handmade incense line is made using the finest natural and organic essential oils and herbal ingredients available and always freshly harvested from the current years bounty. Incense isn't something we just found, we were raised with it, Food for Spirit and what we produce has Love and Prayer incorporated within each incense we create. From Native American Incense that go far back in time to Resin Drop Incenses that trace back to Moses. Our Love and Prayers go into each batch asking that it helps those that use it that their prayers are heard and that only Good things come about to benefit each and everyone of us on this planet we call home.
You see we're a family business and offer the products we create to you. Made with love and prayer our methods of doing business is on a personal and professional level as well as on a spiritual level after all there really is no difference, or separation. We care about what we offer and it seems our customers love what we do. Quality is not only key but is essential.
Our bodies are the temple for the Spirit of The Sacred and as such we feel we need to give it the best chance to not only survive but to nourish it and help it grow so that we can reach our full potential. It's also necessary to include future generations in what we do today to leave them a better place, not a polluted, and potentially poisonous legacy.
We believe in doing things by keeping 7 generations in mind and action.
That's the way we do business.
