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.

The Whole Plant Process

How It's Made

THE WHOLE PLANT PROCESS

At Wildling, we source whole plant distillations for the Empress Tonic. They are extracted in a meticulous artisanal process using live plant material, capturing active cellular waters and volatiles.

It begins with fresh, wild, and organic whole plants known for their dramatic effects on energizing the lymphatics and stimulating circulation. These time-tested plants have been used since ancient times to rejuvenate skin and bring radiant health to the whole body. Each whole plant is harvested at peak potency and pressed fresh. Following a meticulous one month distillation process, all the nourishment from these fresh, powerful plants is pressed from the plants into the Empress Tonic. All this is then delivered to your skin.

This potent formula is imbued with hydrating, living plant medicine. Most distillates today are made with dried plants. This specialized “live plant” process creates a more powerful and effective product than using dried plants.

Delivery Process

GUA SHA METHOD

The facial gua sha method works by releasing tension in the muscles of the face, smoothing out the fascia, and circulating blood and lymph through the tissues.

It also delivers whole plant actives from our products into the deeper layers of the skin for increased absorption and effectiveness. The result is deeply hydrated, plump, toned, and sculpted skin with a radiant glow.

FAQs

The Empress Ritual is helpful for clearing breakout prone skin, however you should not gua sha over active breakouts. The skin care products work well for breakout prone skin. To learn more click here.

We strongly recommend it, especially because facial gua sha also requires face oil. Face oil blocks moisture from going into the skin and from leaving it. Applying tonic before oil allows the oil to trap moisture into the skin. Oil without tonic can actually dry out the skin!

We believe in using the whole plant in our formulas wherever possible. Our Whole Plant Promise refers to our process. We use the entirety of the plant rather than just the steam extraction of its essence, which is how essential oils are made. This way, the products are highly potent and less sensitizing than essentials.

Yes! The plant actives in our Empress Tonic are gentle enough for use on sensitive skin.
