We believe we have the most incredible lineup of vendors participating at the 2013 Expo. In fact, we’re so proud of them, we want everyone to know more about who they are and how their business fits in to the Expo’s passion for seeing Ottawa the healthiest city in Canada. We recently sent our vendors a list of four questions. Between now and the Expo, we will be highlighting some of these amazing vendors. Watch our blog every Tuesday & Saturday morning for another vendor spotlight.

In 1997, Daniel Tigner, Co-founder, began the work of preparing the first mother tinctures that were used to create our first Canadian Forest Tree Essences. For 25 years, Daniel had worked with Bach flower remedies and other essences. As a result of working with people and meditation, he gained insight to create essences that would embody the full light and healing power found in trees. With this new understanding Daniel fostered the first tree essences and subsequently founded CFTE.
In 1998, Celine Cloutier joined the company and became involved in overseeing the production of the tree essences, as well as working with Daniel to develop new essences. From Ottawa, the company moved the manufacturing and office to Gatineau, QC, leading Celine and Daniel to develop fully bilingual material for the Canadian market. With worldwide attention and demand for tree essence products, CFTE began producing its literature in Spanish.
CFTE’s first distributor in the U.S. was and still is Alicia Rocco of Journey to Botanical, (1999). Alicia is an acclaimed Iridologist and Herbalist and contributed to The Essence Project. CFTE’s line of 12 body synergies was developed within a framework, which she described in her work with emotional Iridology.
Several distributors have joined CFTE over the years. Terri Phillips from Ridgeway, ON is a nurse practitioner and brings to the essences a wealth of knowledge from her work and training.
In 2005, JMA Lightworks of Japan requested the creation of a personalized line of body mists, for their own distribution. CFTE worked with them to develop a full line of essence sprays — eight of which are available as our Good Vibe Sprays. CFTE also co-created Oracle cards, which are very successful in Japan.
In 2009, Ottawa’s Holtz Spa incorporated a CFTE products and co-created a spa session named Spirit of the Forest, which was awarded “best new alternative therapy” from Travel to Wellness Best.
