Wild & Free is a small family business nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. At a young age I believed it was important to not only live as holistically as possible but to also embody preventative health practices, especially through the use of safe plants and herbs. Through this practice I found holistic esthetics and fell in love with the idea of healing your skin and body from the inside out. Dealing with severe cystic acne myself I decided to further my education and became a licensed Holistic Esthetician in 2015. After making positive changed in my I own life, I opened Wild & Free in order to share my holistic offerings with others who wanted to eliminate harmful ingredients throughout their daily rituals.
Im so immensely grateful for the growth Wild & Free has seen since 2015 and that we have become known for our high quality, wildcrafted products and services. Our small business has now expanded to a brick and mortar storefront located in Waynesboro, Virginia and our team has grown from just one set of working hands to several.
We strive to use ethically sourced, organically grown and local when possible to handcraft each product in small batches. All of our products are natural, environmentally friendly, sustainable and full of natures botanicals to help renew your spirit!
From my loving hands to yours, I hope you enjoy!
