Vendor Spotlight: Blooming Wild

We have the absolute pleasure of working with creative entrepreneurs and artisans across Canada, from coast to coast. Blooming Wild Botanicals is our first vendor from New Brunswick + we couldn't be more excited to work with them and offer their truly one-of-a-kind holistic creations to Collingwood!

Blooming Wild was founded by Ryan and Charlotte Walker, husband and wife homesteaders in Belleville, New Brunswick with a passion for natural living. Blooming Wild reflects their appreciation of the natural world, and a desire to share that passion with everyone else.

Seeking a simpler existence, R + C were drawn to the rural lifestyle. As fledgling homesteaders, they learned to grow plants, herbs and flowers. They practiced skills like soap making, foraging, plant drying, and natural healing. Blooming Wild is the culmination of these skills, the product of years of natural living.

They love nature, and living naturally, which couldn't be more apparent in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CIWP0YPeQ1s&t=3s

According to C + R: "Our small homestead lives and breathes with the spirit of the old time farmer, the forager, the herbalist, the artist, the healer.

At Blooming Wild we regularly dance with nature, alternatively enduring her fury and basking in her glory. Plants, flowers, herbs, snow, sun: these things are our world. In each of our concoctions, in every bar of soap, we share a part of that world with you."

Next time you're in-store or browsing online, we hope you'll take a look at Blooming Wild. And if you need more reasons to love them, read below:

"We prioritize both naturally grown and certified-organic Ingredients. We appreciate that it isn’t always feasible for small farms to become organic certified. It’s all about the principles that each farm is built upon.

We also deeply value sustainably wild-harvested, and locally grown Canadian Ingredients. You’ll find many of our products contain truly effective, extraordinary wild botanicals.

Ingredient sourcing is a big deal, and we invest a lot of time into research. Understanding the ethical and ecological ramifications of what we purchase is incredibly time consuming. Often there are a lot of layers to peel back to get the true picture. Our aim is to understand all facets of each ingredient that we use. Cost is not the driving factor. Quality. Honesty. Integrity and Ethics are what drive our decision making. My beliefs are often challenged along the way. It’s a deeply humbling and educational process." Charlotte + Ryan
