A young couple started Kingdom Essences with a passion for wellness and the determination to start a business that would directly benefit the community. Immediately after college, Pema and Kuenga leased an underused government-funded Community Facility at Nubi Trongsa.

With distilling equipment at the facility, and organically grown ingredients sourced straight from local farmers, Kingdom Essences produces essential oils and healing products of the purest quality. The venture is linked to Kabab Organic Farm, which cultivates various herbs, grains, fruits, and vegetables, and practices 100% organic farming.

Our Philosophy

Kingdom Essences is driven by two core values- making use of the goodness of nature and benefitting our community. We promote natural methods of healing, extracting high-quality natural raw materials sustainably, and sourcing our special ingredients from local farmers. We are dedicated to supporting farmers in continuing to practice organic farming. Through our purchase of their high-quality products, we support income generation and encourage the best practices in farming in over 155 households in Trongsa, and beekeepers in Bumthang.

Our Purpose

At Kingdom Essences, we are dedicated to enriching people’s lives and preserving the planet through the use of natural and holistic ingredients. Our aim is to create products that are not only effective, but also ethically and sustainably sourced, promoting health and happiness for all while minimising our impact on the environment.

Our Story

Kingdom Essences, founded in 2018 by Pema C. Gyaltshen and Kuenga Dhendup, has roots in the community dating back to 2016. The founders worked with members to identify business opportunities in non-wood forest products, medicinal, and aromatic plants. Their efforts were boosted by His Majesty the King’s generosity, who provided them with training on essential oil uses and value-added product creation at Mae Fah Luang University. This training helped the founders gain the knowledge and confidence they needed to bring their products to market the following year and grow their business.
