“Errant Empire was created with the primary purpose of re-introducing an idea that Herbal Medicine is and was the original medicine.”D. & A. Shaw, Owners
It is hard to find any better way than the above to describe this particular business. David Shaw and his partner and the staff of Errant Empire Herbal Medicine provide professional and intuitive healing services based on plant medicine, from making tinctures to teas, oils and offerings of other services and practitioners in the healing community.
At first glance, there’s an immediate feeling of the old and the wild. The shop has a wooden theme that takes a patron back to a simpler time, back to when medicine really came from plants first before chemicals and pills. Entering the shop takes a person directly to David or other staff members working diligently behind the front counter to fulfil incoming orders; orders can be placed via phone (250-686-4647) or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Further into the shop, a variety of items can be seen on the wooden shelves and display centres. There are natural products and supplements, pure essential oils, as well as cough medicines made of Elderberry and a supply of pre-made teas.
For interested light workers and holistic healers, there is much space available for rent either on a monthly or per-hour basis. Please contact David for more information about rentals at email@example.com
Things at Errant Empire are always changing and in flux, moving to match this fast paced world while still offering a calming place for respite from the outside. Shelves move, new merchants bring in exciting products for selling, and locals make requests. Like any shop, displays and products are constantly moving in and out to match customer needs. It’s best to make this shop a regular stopping point while in Old Esquimalt, so that you can see the latest products and any new services or changes that have been brought in!
My own services offered via Errant Empire include Crystal Therapy, Full Body Massage, Reiki, Sound Therapy, Indian Head Massage and Life Coaching/Counseling with a spiritual twist. I purchase custom made massage oil blends from David directly, so all of the oils I use are made in-house. After a session, my clients often spend time talking to David while having the tea of the day, a free treat after a wonderful healing moment.
