Long ago, our Ancestors found healing, answers, and connection to Source through plant medicine. Today, we hope to bring that magic back to your everyday by providing intentional formulations that aid you on your awakening journey, naturally.
Though many oneirogens (both studied and anecdotal) produce hallucinogenic results, there is still so much to be said about those that are non-psychoactive. Our unique oneirogenic blends create dream-like states of consciousness grounded in reality - helping you become clearer, more balanced and attuned with your Self. Despierta is all about creating clean, wholistic, and realistic attainability of our dreams by providing the tools necessary to awaken you, naturally. We do this by formulating new combinations of Dream Plant Magic™, made up of organic plants, flowers, and herbs that bring you to your truest form.
When we intake specific nutrients, vitamins, and naturally occurring chemicals found in the earth (and our ingredients) - we begin to detoxify our bodies, improve our sleep and cognition, and become more able to travel beyond this realm to explore our Self, deeper.
It is my hope that we go about seeing Despierta as more than just an herbal tea brand, but an educational, transformational, and tool-providing lifestyle company.
Taking a moment to pause and be present with our teas is one step towards altering your reality. For it is when we accept the mission to change within, that we begin to change and awaken to the world around us.

Journey to Despierta
After years of traveling the globe seeking deeper innerstanding of Self and providing tools for reflection & awakening, it was time to rethink and create a new avenue to help people see & awaken to the magic and beauty of reality - what I like to call, the dreamscape..
5 years ago at the end of my world peace tour, I found myself on a new chapter of my life, grounded - setting my roots in nature reflecting on how to best show up and serve the collective at this time. My own roots, background & culture kept arising in meditation bringing forth a deeper focus of herbalism, curanderismo, alchemy and metaphysical sciences. As I connected more with mySelf, the more I felt drawn to reconnect with my elders and their teachings. I grew up spending almost every weekend, holiday and celebration in Mexico with my grandparents and was always fascinated with their natural cures for any ailment that arose. To be honest, they were my greatest inspiration for creating Despierta. I remembered how beautiful and magical it was to utilize plants to heal (my Tata Armando’s go-to was savila *aloe vera* for everything) and how it had been the foundation for all of my exploration into the spiritual and metaphysical realms I had thus far had. With this renowned love for my childhood teachings & upbringing, I wanted to continue providing tools to aid others on their spiritual journey, but in a more tangible form than previously with my meditations, retreats and art. As I dove deep into my studies and research, it became clearer that blending my worlds of art, science and spirituality was a must. I spent 2+ years in creator mode: honing in my magic & gnosis - formulating, testing and assessing the medicinal & metaphysical properties of ancient herbs, flowers, and crystals.. and Despierta was born.
