|The Dharma Den was founded by Aromatherapist, Crystal Veenstra. These organic essential oils and serums are made with the utmost attention to quality. Each product is made locally, in small batches, with the finest organic ingredients we can get our hands on. Each bottle is infused with love, integrity and high-vibin’ goodness!
There is magic in every drop, and it’s my greatest honour to be able to share them with you. The Dharma Den does not cut corners when it comes to quality. We only source oils from USDA CERTIFIED ORGANIC companies. All of our products are 100% pure and undiluted.
Our products contain: No Sodium Lauryl Sulphates (SLS) No Sodium Laureth Sulphates (SLES) NO Synthetic Fragrances No Artificial Colours NO Mineral Oils NO Parabens 100% Vegan No Animal testing – only tested on Earthlings!
We are proud to be able to offer you the purest essence of the plant, or what we like to call Plant Vitality! It can take several hundred to several thousand pounds of plant matter to create a few ounces of essential oil. They are very potent and can be harmful if not used with caution and care.
“If you always nurture dharma, dharma will always nurture you.” -Katha Upanishad
In the Vedic tradition, there is a word that is used to describe the unseen forces that bind all living things — and this word is Dharma. It’s a word used to describe our longing for purpose and our desire to fulfill our personal destiny.
What does this have to do with essential oils?! Well, when we take time for ourselves, get quiet, and open our minds to the inner wisdom of our hearts, Dharma reveals our truth.
As life is constantly changing, our dharma evolves, manifesting in different ways throughout your life. These products were created to help bring you back into the present moment, to encourage you to take care of yourself daily, so you can clearly listen and hear what’s in your heart, and to help you tap into your own Dharma.
Be still, listen to the call of what the next expression of your dharma might be.
There will never be a storm
That can wash the path from my feet,
The direction from my heart,
The light from my eyes,
Or the purpose from this life.
I know that I am untouchable to the force
As long as I have a direction,and aim, a goal:
To serve, to love and to give.
Strength lies in the magnification of the secret qualities
Of my own personality, my own character
And though I am only a messenger,
I am me.
~ Swami Satyananda Saraswati
“We are travellers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity.”
-Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
I live in a little town in Ontario, Canada. I’m blessed to be surrounded by a lush beautiful forest, wildlife, farmland and access to beautiful fresh produce to harvest in the summer and fall seasons. This lifestyle is my passion, and my greatest wish is to share it with you. My hope is to inspire more moments of joy, calm, and self-care into your everyday life.
I have a deep passion and desire and respect for the human body. I believe that nurturing the body, both inside and out, and connecting with all our senses is an important part of the human experience.
My philosophy stems from enjoying each new moment and trusting in a force greater than myself. I also believe that as a community and collective, we can grow and learn something new each day. I hope my products ignite inspiration with a balance of calm and peace in your daily life. with a open and light heart , Crystal
