Who we are

Sacred Heart and Dark Moon coming together

About Wild Return

Wild Return offers plant-based medicinal products, integrating the healing philosophies of Western herbalism, the Eastern chakra system, and the archetypes traditionally found in astrology and tarot. By incorporating the patterns that recur in nature, we take the whole universe, the whole plant, and the whole person into consideration for truly transformative healing. Our approach is intuitive and evidence based. We weave modern science and traditional medicine to create a holistic path to healing and growth. Our passion for integrating health, community, and connection is inspired by witnessing the body’s innate ability to heal when we consciously live in rhythm with the Earth. The energy of our products is inspired by our love for energetic healing. Every tincture is a manifestation of the healing qualities of the chakra it represents, and the design reflects each corresponding element.

We choose ethically sourced plants of the highest quality in all of our tinctures. This means they’re organically grown, preferably through regenerative practices. Otherwise they’re wild harvested in the Pacific Northwest using mindful methods to encourage new growth. Each plant is extracted in certified organic, pharmaceutical grade cane alcohol of the highest standard of purity. Some tinctures have vegetable grade organic glycerine and others have raw, unfiltered honey. All batches are made in ceremony and in prayer to the plants. They are brewed during the new moon and bottled during the full moon to carry the most expansive and magical vibrations.

Our mission is to provide the highest quality, plant-sourced medicine for vibrant health and a deeper spiritual connection.

Our vision is to provide self-care that looks at the whole of the person, plant, and cosmos to create a system that is empowering and transformational.

About the name

The return to one’s untamed, true authentic self in alignment with all of nature. It is about re-membering ourselves back into wholeness. Tapping into the innate power we were born with and may have forgotten along the way. The return of the planets coming back to the place where they are on our birth chart, imprinted deep in our psyches and manifesting through our daily experiences.
