MEET Kristina

The Untamed Alchemist
Founder. Farmer. Formulator. Facilitator.
Herbalist. Aromatherapist.
Mother Earth Chemist. 

Kristina Bauer has studied, explored, and engaged herbs, oils, aromatics, crafts, and creation with curiosity, wonder, and a maker's spirit throughout her life. She identifies first and foremost as an alchemist, namely someone who intentionally facilitates transformation, but she is more easily recognized as the grower, distiller, formulator, and designer behind Untamed Alchemy's natural skincare and herbal/aromatic formulas. As a writer and community member, she has been The Untamed Alchemist® since 2012.

 

Kristina's Bachelor's degree in women's studies & religion focused on liberation theology, our sacred relationship with nature, Mother Earth chemistry, and empowering women through knowledge, ceremony, symbology, and divination. Her passion for and knowledge about sacred symbols, archetypes, cosmologies, and narratives heavily inform her work as a teacher, trainer, and facilitator today.

 

Since her first real foray into aromatherapy, herbalism, and Mother Earth chemistry in 1990, Kristina has deepened and broadened her education and experience. After committing herself to Untamed Alchemy in 2012 and moving to her Idaho farm in 2014, Kristina has added another decade of education and experience to include artisan distillation and natural cosmetic formulation.

 

All told, Kristina has delighted in engaging the art and science of essential oils, herbs, green beauty, pure plant products, and natural cosmetics for over 25 years.

In the premium products she shares under the brand name Untamed Alchemy® featuring her own farm-sourced botanicals and aromatics, the workshop and distillation experiences she facilitates on her farm, and the articles, designs, graphics, and media she creates as The Untamed Alchemist, Kristina's work reflects the breadth and depth of her unique education, experience, passion, perspective, and purpose.
