Dandelions and Dreams is a small, woman-owned company that is passionate about creating natural skincare products. All of our products are handmade in small batches, using primarily organic ingredients, scented with pure essential oils, and colored only with natural pigments, herbs and clay. A majority of the herbs, we use are grown in our garden or wild crafted from around our property, while the others are purchased from organic farms. We believe in using the highest quality ingredients to create safe and effective products that you can feel comfortable using for your entire family.
Hi. I’m Carli, an herbalist and owner of Dandelions and Dreams. After my son was born in 2008, I became interested in ways to reduce the amount of toxins in our food and body care products. It was difficult to find natural products at the time, so I began to make almost everything we used from scratch. I was testing new recipes, and sharing them with family and friends, who eventually started asking for products to gift to others. I created Dandelions and Dreams in 2015 to combine my passion for hand crafting with my love of herbal medicine. Over the years, I have studied with several local herbalists, taken many online classes, including through the Herbal Academy, as well as attended various conferences. My family lives in western New York, where I homeschool our two children, help run the family homestead, raise chickens, and work part time at a local gluten free bakery.
