How we came to be-
I turned my passion for herbalism, nature, spirituality and crystals into something I could share with the rest of the world. In 2016, Dreamer Apothecary started as a creative outlet for me to create dream catchers, candles, beauty products and more. Earlier on, around 2014, I had decided I wanted to live a cleaner, healthier life style. First, of course, was the most obvious toxin- overly processed foods and pesticides. The organic diet over haul had begun. As I scrutinized the ingredients of my cleaning supplies and body products, I found none of them were natural or healthy. It seemed the more research I did, the more toxins I found. My beloved candles were toxic with lead found in the cotton wicks and paraffin wax known to emit highly toxic carcinogens when burned. Benzene and toluene, emitted from paraffin wax, are the same chemicals found in diesel fuel. Artificial fragrances also contain phthalates that can interfere with your hormone system. In the beginning, it was overwhelming thinking that everything we ate, put on our bodies, cleaned our home with, even the air we inhaled was full of harmful toxins. I had realized I couldn't trust large corporations that mass produced products. The answer was clear, to make my own cleaners, beauty products, candles, and incense. I discovered I absolutely loved creating all of these things.
Spirituality and crystal healing has been an important aspect of my life for as long as I can remember. Though out my teenage years I devoured books about crystal healing and spirituality. Norse tradition pulled me in and I studied anything I could find about the Norse culture. Most of my time not reading, was spent in the woods with my most faithful canine companion, Thor. We soaked up all the natural world had to offer. During that time, I established a deep connection to Mother Earth. Gardening became one of my most favorite hobbies by my early 20's. Then came the books about herbalism. Again, I studied tirelessly. I needed to know about every plant and herb. What was its unique signature? What were its healing abilities and metaphysical qualities? Reading wasn't enough. I needed to hold them, smell them, taste them, completely immerse myself in each and every plant. So I did, deepening my ever growing connection to nature. Through out my journey, I have delved down many rabbit holes. From astrology and human design to ancient cultures and all things metaphysical.
From the local farmers market in 2016 and the opening of our Etsy shop in September 2018 to starting Facebook live shows and creating our website in 2019. Dreamer Apothecary Inc is now your one stop shop for all your metaphysical needs. We offer a full range of apothecary items, all handmade in small batches. We also have a large collection of hand picked, high quality crystals. We have a deep love of nature and all of our products are sustainably sourced. Most of our products are also locally sourced. We are very mindful of keeping our bodies healthy. That is why you’ll never find harmful chemicals or artificial fragrances in any of our products!
