I'm Katie, the alchemist + herbalist behind Wild Grace Apothecary.
Here at Wild Grace we're all about storytelling, whether it's on our blog, in product names and descriptions, even on our Instagram. So here's our story of who + why...
Many years ago, after finishing college and landing a job working in the Body Care section at a natural food store, I embarked on a search for a skincare line that my skin absolutely adored. I spent a long time and tried everything to find high quality, natural skincare that worked for my sensitive, dry-combination skin. And came up with nothing.
It wasn't that any of the products were bad for my skin, but I was left feeling unimpressed with the effects and how my skin felt afterward, like I was just using the natural version of all the chemical-laden products I was trying to avoid.
So, I decided to make my own.
In the process of crafting my own skincare, the question in the back of my mind was, "Why re-create all the products already on the shelf?" The world doesn't need another version of the same face cream, even if it is "all natural."
Here, you won't find the typical formulas that are in natural spas, health food stores, or boutiques. You also won't find synthetic fragrances, hormone disruptors, common skin irritants, sulfates, parabens, or petroleum-based ingredients.
Here, you will find the actual, real ingredients + nothing extra. You won't be paying for "natural" emulsifiers or preservatives that are in most natural skincare because we don't make products in which those are needed.
You'll be paying for plant ingredients that heal your skin.

If you're interested in supporting your body throughout the seasons and exploring how the seasonal energetics affect you, you'll love the Wild Medicine Bundle.
Those are just a few of my favorites, but each of our products are intentionally formulated and blended with those in mind who only want to put the best ingredients, those of the Earth, on their skin.
