Every so often we come across a line of products that really excites us. This is one of them. Crafted with care, Tales of the Wild Botanicals is a collection of hand-blended botanical essential oils, skincare products, perfumes and teas, made by Amy and Richard McDowell in their atelier in British Columbia. On their site, the duo affectionately refers to their products and philosophy as "pure as nature itself", an ideology that is most certainly felt and expressed through their product and brand overall. 

The artisan essences emcompass a sweet and delightful simplicity with prodcuts such as "Nectar Solid Perfume" that come with wonderfully detailed descriptions and even the process that went into their creation, providing their audience with transparency that has an informative and educational touch, and which we've had the pleasure of personally trying. 

The Tales of the Wild shop contains more than just aromatic body oils and scents but products that suit the lifestyle behind it and invite viewers into a fuller experience, which is what the brand values most of all, as they state, "We're continually nourished and inspired by nature, and take pleasure in living a quiet life grounded in the endless beauties of the land and water around us." Enjoy their exquisite product photography, and be sure to visit their site to learn more and covet the entire product line. And hey, guess what? We're working on a feature with them for a future issue of PGM, so watch this space to learn more! Exciting!
