Wild As The Wind Website
Hi, I have been blown away (in a good way) by all the amazing info on your website. I wish there were more people like you who question things… Thank you.
Ivana, East Harptree, Somerset
Up until recently you used to be able to find the Wild As The Wind Information Website via two different routes:
However, www.wildasthewind.com is now a dedicated online shop for the full Wild As the Wind Product Range.
And, www.wilddigital.co.uk/ remains an important portal of alternative health information.The way Wild As The Wind differentiate between the two websites is as follows
We are proud to be a Bristol Green Capital Partner.
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 online orders.
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.

Wild As The Wind :: The Back Story
Wild Digital morphed into Wild As The Wind in 2017 after many years of study in the field of alternative health by the owner, Rachel Wild
Rachel Wild has also been a professional writer, specialising in health matters, for many years. Since the inception of Wild As The Wind Rachel has devoted her time almost exclusively to writing alt-health and spiritually oriented articles predominantly on behalf of her own business, and occasionally published elsewhere.
It is so utterly liberating to write what you want, when you want, about the things you’re most passionate about, knowing that you can potentially help a lot of people in the process. That’s the definition of fulfilment for me.Rachel Wild
The true origins of Wild As The Wind date back to 1992, when Rachel, having just completed her massage course, went to India to set up projects for the Body Shop, as part of their Trade Not Aid effort. Read the full story here: Language Barrier.
Prior to Wild As The Wind, as it became known in 2017, Rachel Wild was a professional writer and the Creative Director of Wild Digital, a digital agency in Bristol. She had grown increasingly unwell over the process of a number of years, owing to the heavy workload and stress associated with an online business.
Her deterioration in health was gradual but constant. The effects were felt for a long time, but ignored.
Why Health Matters To Wild As The Wind
I continued to work online day and night, with my adrenals growing increasingly depleted and my bodily aches and pains growing more and more intolerable. By the time my health fell off a cliff I was in constant pain, I had food intolerances across the spectrum, my chronic fatigue never lifted, and I could barely finish a sentence. It was like I had early-onset dementia without the mental faculties to realise it. And, raging arthritis and fibromyalgia etc…
I was toast.
Wild As The Wind represents the culmination of all that I’ve learned in the process of restoring my health back to what it is today. The skincare and healthcare products are what I continue to use to support my health and appearance, and the articles I’m writing contain all of the information that I have used to get well.
I feel very grateful that I am in a position to share everything I’ve needed to know to help myself recover. But, it’s a shame I had to suffer such severe health issues, and undergo years of recovery, before I was forced to start looking after myself…
Those years were dark!
I knew a lot about alt-health already, but I didn’t know enough to understand how my constitution had crashed at a systemic level. That took a long time to piece together. It was tough, and sometimes very scary. It didn’t help that I faced everything alone.
However, I know that I wouldn’t be doing what I’m doing today if it weren’t for the fact that I got really sick.
And, I love what I am doing!
Why wouldn’t I? I’m hard-wired to help and share with others… so yeah, may be the fact my health went into a tail spin was actually a gift in disguise… so yeah… may be all that suffering is a blessing after all…?
Rachel WildFor anyone suffering from any of the following I recommend you read Mast Cell Activation Syndrome. (I had most of the following!)

- Aching muscles and joints
- Chronic skin conditions like: Acne, or Psoriasis & Eczema etc…

The Wild As The Wind Online Shop was launched in June 2020 after repeated requests for an easier means of buying Wild As The Wind Facial Oils and UK essential oils.
Prior to this the choices for buying Wild As The Wind products was limited to purchases made in person or via the Wild As The Wind Etsy Shop.
Wild As The Wind has customers all over the UK, so buying in person is not an option for most. And, too many people were finding the Etsy Shop too difficult to use. So, a new solution was needed…
Thankfully all of these problems have been remedied with the Wild As The Wind Online Shop.
Your new website is a total pleasure, & as a customer you’re made welcome right from the start when your first purchase arrives with a handwritten note…
I love everything I have tried so far.
And [I] appreciate all the wealth of information provided..
It feels personal not just pressing a button to order an item
Well done you
Thanks so much Susan, your feedback is profoundly appreciated. I love that you are sequentially working through the Wild As the Wind products… to date you have bought Essential Oils, Nigella Sativa Oil, FACIAL OIL No. 2, Hormone Balancing Essential Oils, Dead Sea Mud, and a Shungite Pendant.
I’m really glad you are finding the new website easy to use as well. Thank you so much for letting me know. x x x xRachel Wild
Wild As The Wind Customer Feedback
The Wild As The Wind Online Shop has received a lot of glowing feedback since its launch. This is especially true where the Wild As The Wind Facial Oils are concerned.
If you are interested in buying Wild As The Wind Facial Oils then you will find more than enough feedback in the Wild As The Wind Online Shop.
However, because Wild As The Wind carries one of the most extensive ranges of essential oils in the UK, some essential oils are yet to receive feedback. You can click here to find more essential oil feedback.
Wild As The Wind is extremely grateful for your feedback. Many thanks to those who have provided it, and to those who continue to support us in this way.
Handmade Skincare & Healthcare in Bristol, Bath & Somerset
Wild As The Wind is probably best known for the ever popular FACIAL OIL No. 2 and the increasingly popular FACIAL OIL No. 8. We are also gaining a reputation for selling therapeutic grade essential oils. Although essential oil sales are slower than hoped, our commitment to supplying them remains strong.
It is my profound hope that everyone who approaches Wild As The Wind for advice is inspired to start taking responsibility for their health, instead of looking to others to simply heal them. It’s clear our health care provision is in crisis, and that Big Pharma has patently become all about greed as opposed to healthcare provision. If ever there was a time for us to become our own doctors it is now! Luckily, nature, in the form of essential oils and herbal medicines, as well as Homoeopathy and Acupuncture, are all we need in order to thrive.Rachel Wild
We also supply Shungite Pendents and Shungite Pyramids.
Wild As The Wind is progressively increasing the product range over time. We like this sensitive organic approach to business.
Wild As The Wind Organic Growth
There’s a number of influences that help us decide which direction to follow:
- feedback we receive
- insights obtained from continued research
- intuitive insights
- new developments within our environments
What doesn’t influence our decision-making is marketing intelligence!
We know that natural skincare and healthcare is a growth industry, but the whole point of Wild As The Wind is to respond to the needs of our customers as well as we can. We would lose sight of this objective if we shifted our focus and allowed our decisions to be influenced by industry insights.
So, we have moved away from our marketing roots pretty much across the board.
It feels so good.
The digital marketing agency was always a compromise. I was willing to do it because I love to write, And, these days if you want to write, you need to be able to optimise your content.
But it’s exhausting. And so, so dull!
Yeah, if feels amazing to be writing about what I really care about, knowing that I’m building up an amazing resource that is hopefully going to help a lot of people.
Now I’m finally doing what I’m meant to be doing!!Rachel Wild
