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.
