The Wild Walk Experience

Our Wild Walk Experience is local. It’s wild. And it’s the renaissance in the arena of super foods, juices and smoothies preparation and design.
Contact us to talk about your plans.
The exciting innovative art of combining essential oils with drinks and food is being used in Michelin-starred restaurants, by celebrity chefs and brings home a whole new meaning to healthy drinking.

We will take you on an exploration of your local surroundings and introduce you to native plants, trees, flower and even weeds, which you will crush, smell, collect and forage in order to create the perfect botanical juice. You will then be introduced to a range of botanical plants with which you will make a botanical juice and see, first-hand, a botanical distillation. You will choose which botanicals to use in your botanical juice and prepare, blend, filter and bottle.

Dear Jill and Helen,

From myself and Adam, a BIG thank you for a wonderful walk to the Cascade waterfall and the fantastic group discussion afterwards. Our visitors loved the discussion and the setting – and the people you invited to share their thoughts and experiences with us were absolutely perfect.

You have enriched our work with your generosity. Thank you also for your efficiency, pulling it all together in record time! Please extend our thanks to your wonderful network – we hope to have the opportunity to work with you again.

“I thoroughly enjoyed the day on Waiheke with my work colleagues and I am writing to both endorse and recommend Helen and Jill from The Botanical Distillery. From our arrival on Waiheke and the walk through Te Atawhai Whenua Reserve, so began our botanical adventure.
As well as sampling and smelling an array of native and medicinal plants and their fragrance; we also got to take home the products we actually made.
For me there were so many highlights from the day, in particular that both Helen and Jill displayed a genuine passion and caring for the environment. Arohanui.”

“Thank you for such a wonderful day! Thank you for your generosity with inviting me to the event, and for the amazing experience that it was.
It was so lovely to be able to spend the day immersed in everything botanical, and I thought the workshops you ran were excellent and a real in-depth experience.”

“Thank you so very much for your excellent work in organising The Wild Walk Challenge through the Atawhai Whenua Reserve on Waiheke for our clients. It was a fantastic start to our day. Everyone really enjoyed it and it was so lovely of Jill to make delicious muffins and herbal tea for us. A really nice personal touch.”
