UK Skincare & Essential Oils
Wild As The Wind is a proprietary skincare brand, UK Essential Oils retailer, and authorised stockist of Healing Herbs Bach Flower Remedies.
Originating from a beautiful, rural setting, just south of Bristol & the City of Bath, in sunny Somerset, we moved southward at the beginning of 2022. We are currently situated where three counties meet: Devon, Dorset and Somerset, again in a rural setting.
The overriding focus of Wild As The Wind is to provide the finest quality essential oils and natural skincare products at the most affordable prices possible. We carry one of the most extensive ranges of essential oils in the UK, alongside our highly acclaimed skincare range.
Of equal importance is the desire to help people make healthy choices about their personal care. To this end, Rachel Wild continues to publish free-to-access, cutting-edge, natural health information.
It is also why we made the decision to become an authorised stockist of the Healing Herbs Bach Flower Remedies range, in 2021.
Accessing Wild As The Wind
The Wild As The Wind Online Shop ensures access to all Wild As The Wind hand-blended products and essential oils from everywhere in the UK.
We are very lucky to have wonderful, dedicated customers all over the UK & Ireland. We love this diversity, as well as the interconnectedness of it all.
Whether you are from the UK or Ireland, you all share in our love!
Very sadly, we have temporarily stopped sending orders to Europe, but will resume the moment there is complete clarity around postal arrangements in this post-Brexit world.
Wild As the Wind Information Website
In addition to this online Wild As The Wind Shop Website, we also offer an extensive amount of free complementary health information on the Wild As the Wind Information Website.
The Wild As The Wind Information Website provides comprehensive information about essential oils, complementary health, emotional health, and hormonal health etc, based on the latest research.
Some of the most well read articles are:
Essential Oils Contents Page (read the full list of essential oil articles)
Stress (is a major factor in our failing health)
Hormone Health (learn how plastics in our food supply, & chemicals, including all synthesised fragrances, are causing severe hormonal issues)
Digestive Health (is at the root of most of our illnesses)
Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (1 in 5 of us have this condition without knowing it… and we are immune-compromised as a result… If you have chronic pain & inflammation / autoimmunity, or you suffer from anxiety & depression, then this article is a must-read!)
Eczema & Psoriasis Causes & Cures
Wild As The Wind Ethos & Eco-Consciousness
Wild As The Wind is a proud member of the Bristol Green Partnership. We go to extreme lengths to be as environmentally compatible as possible.
We use a minimum of plastic within every aspect of our business. Products are presented in amber glass bottles with aluminium lids, and we work with suppliers who deliver their oils in aluminium canisters.
Plus, we reuse all of the ‘void fill’ packaging from our suppliers when we fulfil our orders online.
I have just received my first order from Wild As The Wind, plastic-free packaging, a lovely personal note and beautiful quality oils, what more could I ask for? Thank you.

Rachel Wild, the founder of Wild As The Wind, has given many talks on working with essential oils in an environmentally supportive way. She is particularly well known for her talks on eco-friendly cleaning products, the first of which she presented to the Green Wedmore Group, which turned out to be one of her most ever enthusiastic crowds.
Rachel Wild is passionate about the removal of endocrine disrupting plastics and chemicals from our environment. She believes they are two of the most pervasive causes of immune dysfunction and illness among all living creatures on this beautiful planet.
There’s absolutely no need for plastics and synthetic chemicals, so why are we making them?
***Sadly, owing to supply chain difficulties, due to Corona Virus lock downs and the impact of Brexit, it has been impossible to buy plastic-free closures for a small number of our products. Nevertheless, most of our bottles still come with aluminium lids.
I’ve just received my order of Thieves Oil which arrived quickly and well packaged (like all of the orders from Rachel. And thankfully, unlike certain other retailers, the packaging is 99% recyclable.) As the website explains, there are so many uses for Thieves Oil, plus it smells lovely and is definitely an essential for every household! Love it!Norm, Sheffield

Wild As the Wind also has outlets in the City of Bath and the City of Wells at the Bath and Wells Markets.
We also attend events in Bristol, Somerset, Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire, and Wiltshire, where we meet with people from all over the UK and Europe.
I have received my order today and I’m sooo glad I’m back to being able to use your no 2 oil again. Definitely noticed a difference in [facial skin] quality when I started using a different supplier once Wells market closed re Covid
I also love your mineral spritz spray & use it morning & night because it helps me get a better nights sleep.
Thank you again for the lovely oils and look forward to seeing you at Wells Market soon!
Kind regards, Sue, Axbridge, Somerset

Wild As The Wind Is Cruelty Free
Wild As The Wind will never use ingredients or sell products which have been tested on animals.
All of the Wild As The Wind products are Vegetarian and Vegan friendly.
Wild As The Wind is completely Cruelty Free
A keen awareness of the atrocious animal testing practices employed by big brand cosmetic and skincare companies, which still persists to this day, was very influential in Rachel Wild’s choice to get involved with the Body Shop in the 1990’s.
Tragically, when the Body Shop was sold to L’Oréal in 2006 all of the Body Shop integrity where social consciousness and animal welfare are concerned disintegrated instantly. In fact, many of the gains that were made in terms of animal cruelty reduction, have been lost. There has never been as much animal testing as there is today. Wild As The Wind devoutly stands against it.

About Wild As The Wind
Wild As The Wind was set up by Rachel Wild in 2017.
Having been a health writer for many years, Rachel Wild had seen new, cutting edge, medical research deviate further and further away from the kind of medicine currently being practised in the West.
It takes 17 years on average for new medical discoveries to filter down to healthcare delivery. Because new groundbreaking discoveries within medical research are being made at an ever-increasing pace, this means that the gap between what we know and what is being practised grows ever wider.
Rachel Wild became acutely aware that the more these new medical insights deviate from medical practice, the more imperative it is for us to take a greater responsibility for our own health. And, she knew that if she made things a little easier for people, then this is precisely what would start happening.
We have never had such privileged access to information which promises to be so transformational for our well-being. All the latest research is published in public formats, with a lot of it having been made available online.
However, because of the sheer volume of information published, with some of it conflicting, it isn’t easy for those without a medical background to navigate their way to the best resources.
This is why Rachel Wild felt compelled to set up the Wild As The Wind Information Website in order to help others make sense of the information available, so they could positively impact their health and improve the quality of their lives.
About Rachel Wild
Rachel Wild has led a ‘textured’ life. The seeds of Wild As The Wind were sown back in the early 1990’s when she went to South India to set up projects for the Trade Not Aid arm of the Body Shop. But it wasn’t until she had been a professional writer for many years that the idea of taking a more intimate and proactive approach to healthcare information delivery began to take shape. And, by the time Rachel realised the creation of a business like Wild As The Wind would allow her the voice she really needed to more positively impact people’s lives, the decision to proceed had pretty much made itself…

Just confirming that I would buy the Dr Bronner’s Castile soap from you. 🙂 I haven’t heard of it before, actually, but the products look ideal and, of course, I trust your guidance.
Rachel Wild says
Hi Carol, thanks so much for letting me know x x I think I’m going to do it. I won’t use anything else. Sorry to be so personal, but hopefully my candidness will help others… I developed Lichen Sclerosus when I entered Peri Menopause. It was horrendous! It cleared up completely when I stopped using anything but Dr. Bronner’s Castile Soap 🙂 Such a relief!!!
Hope all’s still going well x x x
Karen Rockey says
Thank you so much for such a candid discussion at Buckfast Christmas Fayre today. I really appreciate your advice, guidance and support. Please can you inform me whether you provide any lectures or one to one discussions about essential oils and their assistance to our lives. I would really love to come to a workshop/lecture run by you. Kind regards, grateful thanks and very best wishes for the new year.
Rachel Wild says
I would love to do talks / informal discussions, but I don’t have time to organise them, and people tend never to be free to attend at the same time. I will work harder to make these happen next year. Really good to meet you. Have a magical Christmas. x x x
