My past ancestors had walked this land. They had endured the potato famine and had lived in the harsh extremes and wonderful landscapes of the area. They were connected to the land in a far deeper way than modern man; they needed the land to feed their cattle, provide for their family and help support the people around them.
My Father was from Dingle in the County of Kerry, and I spent much of my childhood exploring this part of Ireland. I always felt so connected to Dingle and its exceptional landscape.
I knew that I had journeyed often through the pastures in my bare feet in a past life.
I knew that on a 'soul' level my spirit was firmly connected to Dingle and I wanted to capture the true 'essence' of this beautiful place, so here I began preparations to create my own Flower and Environment range of essences.
This is me in Dingle, Ireland, in 2007.
