Our Story

"Self-care never felt so selfless."

Who we are: A local, woman-owned, small, soapmaking business called The Wild Botanica.

What we make: Artisan soap inspired by the flora, fauna, and wild folks of the Pennsylvania Wilds. We use sustainably sourced plant-based oils and butters, natural colorants like activated charcoal and clays from the earth, and scent our soaps with essential oils and fragrant oil blends.

Where we’re located: Our small-batch, cold-process, rustic soaps are handcrafted in the rolling foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, in the quaint, rural town of Brockway, Pennsylvania. We directly sell our products on our website, on Etsy, and on the Pa Wilds Marketplace. Additionally, we sell our products at various vetted, local retailers and businesses that align with our mission and values. Our list of stockist locations is growing throughout the PA Wilds, and we would love the pleasure of adding you to it! Contact us for consignment or wholesale.

What we want: Since its inception, The Wild Botanica’s mission has been to inspire people to connect to nature through self-care and conservation in a way that ritualizes the cleansing experience with soap and bath products handmade with natural and sustainable ingredients sourced from local and global communities.

Meet the Wild Botanica’s founder, Rebecca. She’s a nature-lover, soapmaker, and an entrepreneur. She has an educational background in film, writing, and teaching. She’s also a mother and wife. Her truest identity and duty is tied to creating, educating, and supporting her family while enjoying rural life in Pennsylvania. Rebecca takes pleasure in ritualizing the little everyday life experiences like taking a bath with her handcrafted soaps, picking seasonal berries for pies, sitting on her front porch with a cup of coffee, and listening to the birds sing. Enjoying these small things and more enable her to feel intrinsically connected to and in alignment with the veneration of nature.
