The return to one’s untamed, true authentic self in alignment with all of nature
Written by Kara Cardiff, 2021
While the practice of enjoying and nurturing plants as self-care has become a popular custom over the past few years, the relationship between wellness and nature’s bounty is thousands of years old. Incorporating plants into our daily lives can be deeply healing and restorative to our physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies. When we view plants as our friends, teachers, and allies, it opens us up to their nourishing and healing powers.

Wild Return Botanical Apothecary offers plant-based tinctures grounded in the philosophies of Western herbalism and the Eastern chakra system. Every formula carries the qualities of the chakra it’s associated with along with its corresponding element. Their tinctures are ethically sourced, meaning they’re organically grown, preferably through regenerative practices. Otherwise, they’re wild harvested in the Pacific Northwest using careful methods to encourage new growth. Each tincture contains a carefully selected triad of botanicals chosen specifically for their synergistic properties. 

The makers of Wild Return believe that triads, formulas with three different plant ingredients, allows each plant spirit in the formula to come through and be experienced physically, mentally, emotionally and energetically to create a truly holistic approach to healing. Their intention is to help others cultivate a relationship with each plant as a way to listen to their intuition and advocate for their health.

Kara Cardiff became lifelong friends with Pia when they met at Ryerson University in Toronto. In 2020, their brand was born at the intersection of Kara's love of building brands and Pia's passion for healing and herbalism.

Focus Pocus, a tincture that facilitates mental clarity and focus, and nourishes the crown chakra (Sahasrara) through a synergy of Bacopa, Gotu Kola, and Lion's Mane. A single dose will increase blood flow to the brain and reduce brain fog while enhancing intellectual function. Each plant plays a role in this cognitive support tincture. Bacopa is popular in Ayurveda for boosting mental function and alleviating stress. It contains active compounds called bacosides which have an antioxidant effect on the brain and can reverse signs of memory loss. 

Gotu Kola is a well known remedy in Traditional Chinese Medicine for its genius boosting powers. It increases circulation to the brain to support learning while decreasing neuroinflammation and protecting brain cells from toxicity and stress. Lastly, Lion’s Mane is a medicinal mushroom prized for its ability to also boost mental functioning. It has been shown to protect against dementia, reduce mild symptoms of depression and anxiety, and even helps the nervous system to regenerate. Plus, it stimulates the growth of brain cells while preventing neural damage to reduce brain fog. Supporting the crown chakra bolsters your basic right to know and to learn. It opens you to the divine and allows you to receive knowledge you can alchemize into wisdom and self growth.

Immune Warrior works with the root chakra (Muladhara) with a combination of Elderberry, Echinacea Root, and Licorice Root. This formula synergistically protects against pathogens and increases stamina. It contains a rich source of flavonoids to boost the immune system while supporting white blood cells to fight off infections. These flavonoids come from elderberries which are also rich in minerals that strengthen the immune system for quick healing. They contain powerful antivirals and are one of the most researched plants when it comes to respiratory health. Echinacea is also a well known plant that contains substances with anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties in its root. It’s best known for its ability to stimulate the immune system and boost white blood cells. 

Licorice is another powerful antiviral and immune system stimulant often used in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is moistening to the mucous membranes which coats lung tissue allowing more time for damaged cells to regenerate and repair. Additionally, it promotes nutrient absorption, reduces inflammation, and aids upper respiratory conditions. As a root chakra tincture, it strengthens your foundation and corresponds to your physical body and environment. It’s a reminder of your right to be here and to have your needs met. It governs your immune system, your vitality, and your health.
