Dancing Butterfly Naturals is a Taos Pueblo/Yaqui woman owned and operated LLC business. All products are made using the locally sourced ingredients from the Taos Pueblo Mountains in Northern New Mexico, and from trusted Indigenous suppliers (where available) throughout the U.S. & the world that have the highest consideration for Mother Earth. It is a family effort.
The business name comes from my given Tiwa name Tsel’Moya Dahmah’ee, and the logo was created for me by Taos Pueblo Artist Jocelyn Martinez.
The story of Dancing Butterfly Naturals goes back to the summer of 2012 where I was learning about Indigenous sustainability in its true form. Living off my lands pre-contact, at Taos Pueblo during this time meant that my family and I learned how to plant, hunt, forage and process our traditional foods and medicines of our ancestors. We learned much about food sovereignty before we were even familiar with the term. We learned how to be reciprocal with our environment; our plant and animal relatives. We learned how to heal and sustain ourselves using what our ancestors before us had used.
Once we had gone through this process, it was impossible to go back to the way we once lived, mainly shopping from stores and using over-the-counter medicines and personal products. We decided that we would make conscious efforts to continue living off our lands and using what was given to us. Today we are farmers, we are foragers, we are in charge of our own health and sustainable futures, we are protectors of our water and Mother Earth, and we are carriers of traditional and indigenous knowledge and seeds.
Now, we share some of this knowledge with you through our pure, natural, and organic products that we make with love and good energy. Understanding that true sustainability comes from the ability to give back to Mother Earth what you take, be mindful of how much you take, and what you give back.
Many products nowadays are filled with chemicals that can harm you. Quality should never be a compromise. . which is why the fundamental ingredients used in making all my products are natural or organic and with the greatest consideration for my customer’s health and well-being. Ingredients such as: Goat’s milk, aloe vera gel, coconut oil, cold pressed olive oil, vegetable oil and glycerin, sunflower oil, hemp oil, sweet almond oil, pure vitamin E oil, various flower teas and essences.
Thank you for your support and interest in our products. Blessings.
