Wildwood is my answer to a need to constantly research, learn and create. About 3 years ago I had a class on herbs and their uses; and I was intrigued. From then on, I picked up any book I could on herbalism and natural beauty remedies...I am a research-a-holic! :) I find it amazing the many uses God made for each individual herb. It is rather humbling to learn that plants I used to think were "weeds" are really amazing healers and helpers. Each herb was created for so many wonderful purposes. I enjoy going out with my family on the four wheeler to look for herbs that grow in our surrounding forests. The mullien, willow, juniper berry, and pine I used in my products is all harvested from our forests. I put a lot of time and research into my products. Each herb I add to my salves, balms and rubs is carefully picked or bought(some things just don't grow here) for the functions it posesses…

Wildwood is also the answer to my need to use more natural body products for my family. I am a mom to four boys and two girls They are my everpresent guinea pigs! :) If they or I haven't tried it, I don't sell it. The boys helped me come up with a need for Wound Salve and kids soap; and the girls are the reason for tinted and flavored lip balms and lovely smelling lotions.

I am blessed to live in the beautiful NM mountains with my husband --who is a USFS fire fighter. We own a small property where we enjoy beautiful sunrises and sunsets. We are blessed to be able to homeschool our 6 kids and enjoy our small collection of farm animals and pets. Life is busy!
