"Freda & Wolf products are intended to positively empower the Divine feminine within women who seek toxin-free, high vibrational and plant-based products. As a herbalist with a 4 year Master's Degree in Oriental Medicine, using nature's medicine cabinet to enhance natural beauty and optimize health from within, makes perfect sense to me. Plants are potent healers and nature has a solution to every health concern. I'm proud to state that these products are genuinely holistic through the integration of chakras, affirmations, essential oils and healing botanical ingredients."
- Hilde Schirmer LAc., M.T.O.M., Dipl.OM., CEO and Founder of Freda & Wolf
In 2010, when I was pregnant and no longer wanted to put luxury toxins on my skin, in my body or my home, I combined my wisdom of Holistic Medicine, with my passion for plants and my romance with skincare products. The skincare journey started with me formulating products in my home in Baltimore County, MD which eventually led to multiple trips to Scottsdale, AZ in collaboration with a chemistry lab I thought I'd work with long term but 7 years later I realized, if you want see your vision through, you have to do it yourself.
In October of 2017 I created the life enhancing Freda & Wolf skincare line; game changers in the skincare industry. Freda & Wolf's journey is a testament to the fact that "it takes the time it takes" and that maintaining unwavering integrity yields the best results. The Women's Tonic was created after the birth of my daughter, when I experienced post partum depression, anemia, hair loss and exhaustion. It was an incredibly challenging time for me as well as for my spouse. He was also going through hormonal changes as he was 43 and his body was responding to my hormonal changes. Both of us were losing hair, which was the last straw! (Vanity can be a powerful motivator:)
Together we pooled our resources, our knowledge of herbal medicine and created the first version of the Women's and Men's Hair Tonic. We cooked up the herbs and drank them daily. Within 2 weeks hair loss had ceased, my post partum depression was lifting, my energy was returning and my blood deficiency symptoms were disappearing. After 6 weeks my hair was thicker, growing faster, my skin was more vibrant and I felt like a functional new mom.
My hope it to support women, mothers, stay at home moms and entrepreneurs, so that they can feel positively empowered, radiant and healthy!
With gratitude, Hilde
