Wild Carrot Herbals Skin Care
Since 2000, our goal has been to create honest, nutrient-rich, joyful products that are reasonably priced for the entire family.
We are a small, family owned and operated business located in Enterprise, Oregon. We feel really lucky to have this thriving little business that allows us to live in a beautiful and wild place in NE Oregon. We manufacture everything ourselves at Wild Carrot with the exception of our organic castile soap & Camamu bar soaps. We try to grow as many of the botanical ingredients as we use in our products or we wild craft them ourselves in the surrounding area. We make hundreds of gallons of our own botanical infused oils out of this plant material every year. We source organic ingredients whenever possible. Sometimes we feel that a local or fair trade product better suits our company vision and the quality might be better. Plus, we enjoy the relationships we have built buying directly from real live folks.
Our products are all made in very small batches—measured, mixed, hand poured and labeled the old fashioned way with love, care and cleanliness. All of the recipes were created by Jody Berry and have been tested for years (since 1993) on hundreds of friends and family members and now on the public at large. Jody met her husband Michael while studying organic farming at the Evergreen State College. We both have been organic and biodynamic farmers and incorporate these practices in what we grow in rural NE Oregon. Wild Carrot has grown, and we are now assisted by our 5 year old daughter Ginger Berry, 5 employees, Daisy Doodle Monkey Dog, our sweet border collie aussie, and 13 chickens.
What is Wild Carrot anyway?
Our company namesake, also known as Queen Anne’s Lace or as Daucus Carota, is an abundant weed found all over the Northwest. The upper Chehalis people’s name for the month of June is ‘wild carrot month’ and it was an important food source for them.
This hardy plant has a long white tap root that is edible and smells and tastes just like a carrot. Popular with florists, the gorgeous flowers are long-lasting and a delicate filler for bouquets. They produce abundant seeds—also known as a bird’s nest—and the birds do go crazy for them in the fields in the fall. These seeds have many uses—distilled as an essential oil, cold pressed for a nutrient-rich oil and consumed to avoid pregnancy.
The essential oil in skin care is said to help improve the complexion of the skin and cell regeneration. It is specific to aged skin and can assist with conditions like eczema, psoriasis and rashes.
According to the ‘Flower Essence Repertory’, by Patricia Kaminsky and Richard Katz, Queen Anne’s Lace flower essence harmonizes both ‘higher’ and ‘lower’ energies, so that one can stay connected with the Earth, yet also be emotionally clear and objective in one’s spiritual insight and vision. The Queen Anne’s Lace flower helps to ground and stabilize, as well as to refine and sensitize the soul’s ‘clear-seeing.’
