Ingredients and Sourcing

Ingredients & Sourcing

At Wildling, our ingredients come from small batch, family-owned farms, and in some cases are harvested by farmers who forage wild plants seasonally. Ingredients are certified USDA organic and harvested at peak potency.

These plants have been used since ancient times to rejuvenate skin and bring radiant health to the whole body. The herbaceous aroma comes not from added fragrance or essential oils, but directly from the botanical infusion itself. Each plant is medicinal, intentionally chosen for its unique benefit to the skin and to complement the Empress Gua Sha Ritual.

Inside the Collection

Empress Stone

THE EMPRESS STONE

Made of 100% sustainably sourced Bian stone

Known for its rejuvenating properties, Bian stone was created when a meteor struck a mountain in ancient China. It is said to emit ultrasound pulsations, far infrared rays, and negative ions as a result of the cosmic impact — all of which are known for their antioxidant and anti-aging effects on cells and DNA.

Empress Tonic

EMPRESS TONIC

Sweet Fern, Damask Rose & Douglas Fir

Naturally essential-oil free, the Empress Tonic is formulated with three carefully selected botanicals known for their powerful but gentle ability to stimulate and nourish the lymphatic system.

Empress Oil

EMPRESS OIL

Balm of Gilead, Resin Nutrient Complex & Sunstone

The Empress Oil is an infusion of ingredients used for skin healing for thousands of years. It is the only oil designed to use during gua sha practice, helping to increase circulation, plump, and tone the skin.



OUR WHOLE PLANT PROMISE

At Wildling we use a unique “live plant” process which extracts the most potent oils from living plants making our Empress Oil the most hydrating and healing oil. While other oils are created by using dried plants, the Empress Oil’s ingredients are extracted in a meticulous artisanal process using fresh plant material, capturing active cellular waters and volatiles. This potent formula is imbued with hydrating, live plant medicine. This specialized “live plant” process creates a more powerful and effective product than a dried plant could.
