A corner of Wild Rose's herb garden.
Wild Rose is a botanical skincare company that prides itself in strong ethics, sustainability and effective, yet natural products. All items are handmade, packaged and shipped from our homestead workshop located on Takelma land in the so-called Rogue Valley of Southern Oregon.
Founder of Wild Rose Herbs, Ashley Bessler (Ash).
The founder of Wild Rose, Ashley Bessler (Ash), intuitively formulates our unique products using the best, most ethically-produced ingredients available. Ash is a folk herbalist having learned the alchemical art of herbalism with an emphasis on topical applications over the past sixteen years. Ash is responsible for product design, formulation, web design, customer service, wholesale management and ingredient sourcing. If you ever need to contact Wild Rose, you're very likely to speak with Ash directly.
Mary and Ash - The Wild Rose Crew!
Mary supports Ash with many aspects of Wild Rose, assisting with order packing, customer service, bulk bottling and labeling. Ash and Mary work in tandem to provide you with quick and friendly service.

Wild Rose strives to provide unique and natural products with maximum value and minimal waste. All products are very concentrated and made with the highest quality ingredients from suppliers with exceptional ethics. We believe in full transparency - we're proud of our products, right down to the packaging, and invite customer questions.
Cutting roses, picking yarrow and cuddling ducks - all part of the job!
Wild Rose is our response to an economy where the ecological, political and social costs of manufacturing are veiled. Ash spends much of her time tracking down raw materials, packaging and even office supplies to their source. This minimizes or eliminates the social, environmental and ethical footprint of our products by choosing sources that are non-GMO, sustainably harvested, organic or fair trade. We grow many of the fresh botanicals needed for our recipes just outside the workshop in our organic permaculture gardens.
Labeling, packing, shipping...
Wild Rose offsets the inevitable environmental impact of our business by donating a portion of our annual profits to environmental and social justice groups. Past donations have gone to Klamath-Siskiyou Wildlands Center, The Confederated Tribes of the Lower Rogue, Wildlife Images, NEST, Blue Mountains Biodiversity Project, Black Mesa Indigenous Support, Peaceful Uprising and Units'ot'en Camp. Your purchase directly supports the vital work of these amazing groups!
