Having two Irish parents from County Kerry, the call to create a set of essences based on the nature of Dingle has always been deep inside of my DNA. After many years of tracking my family’s lineage through family trees, I decided to do a DNA test, and what I found surprised me. I was 100% Irish. What was most interesting for me was the fact that most of my DNA was connected to Dingle and the Kerry area.
The Dingle Essences were birthed on the first full moon of 2020, on Friday the 10th of January. This “wolf moon” also coincided with a lunar eclipse and Storm Brendon, which was raging across Ireland. I had booked a flight from the UK many months before and had been unaware of these factors prior, but it all came together to create the perfect conditions for the ‘birth’ of the eight Dingle Essences.
