What We do at Dryland Wilds:
Make desert perfume from dryland plants in New Mexico. Using distillation, enfleurage and maceration, and tincturing we pull fragrance from the plants we harvest, blending these extracts with other botanicals (essentials oils, concretes + absolutes) to capture the desert’s real scents of place.
Handcraft botanical soaps, balms, and oils in small batches with organic oils and handmade desert perfumes. We use no synthetic fragrances or artificial ingredients ever.
Practice and teach sustainable wildcrafting and wilderness skills in the high desert, prioritizing invasive and common plants for our fragrance harvests. We also help private landowners by removing invasives from their land and teach the many uses of these hated plants.
Work towards less waste in our world, hand-rendering tallow for our soaps from a local butcher (that would otherwise be thrown away), packaging in compostable paper tubes, glass and metal reusable containers and shipping with eco-alternatives to plastic.
Sleep on the sand of desert canyons, search for hours in an ocean of sagebrush for the most fragrant plants, roast piñon nuts, skin prickly pears and drink acorn coffee by a campfire (surrounded by stars, howling coyotes and miles of pristine desert). We love it here and want to bring you the real desert perfumes of this place we call home.
