Rachel, co founder started her herbal journey from her early years collecting leaves and flowers with her mum making magic potions for insect bites and bruises, and foraging for seasonal fruits and berries.
Her mum Agnes Beryl was a single working mum of four who also managed to grow all the families seasonal fruit and veg, and these interconnected moments outside picking raspberries and harvesting gooseberries was the start of a life long love of being with plants and nature.
There was a detour after Rachel’s schooling, an unexpected opportunity to travel the world as a
fashion model, living in London, Paris and New York and although incredible.. modelling and constant travel also brought its challenges with stress, anxiety, and hormonal, adrenal imbalance.
So she started to look at ways to better support herself, and was drawn to nutritional herbs such
as adaptogens, which she later went on to write about in her book Super Herbs.
She moved from New York back to London studying and qualifying in herbalism and naturopathy,
and from her private practice over the many years the seeds of Wilder were planted.
Wilder’s a family business with Rachel’s spouse and partner Charlie leaving his job in stills
production to make and create in their studio.
