By now, we are well into–indeed almost out of!–the sign of the Tenth House… meet Capricorn. Where you might expect this sign to align exclusively with especially grounded and earthy oils and herbs (think Patchouli, Cypress, Vetiver) given its Earth element, Capricorn’s Cardinal (and therefore […]
Happy New Year, friends! I’m just poking my head out of my hibernation cave to offer the first “hello!” of 2015. As is my nature, I am hunkered down in contemplative mode making plans for the new year, assessing strides against last year’s goals, and tending to […]
I'm Kristina, The Untamed Alchemist.
I'm a diarist, creatrix, storyteller, grower, student, and teacher who is enchanted with change and enamored of nature.
These pages celebrate some of my favorite things:
AROMATICS. HERBS. OILS. FOOD. NATURE. MAGIC. LIFE.
I'm also passionate about archetypes, symbology, mythology, magic, folklore, old world hand/crafts, ceremony, and liberation theology.
I delight in the exploring, engaging, and applying the art & science of aromatherapy, herbalism, nutrition, wellness, and Mother Earth chemistry.
When I'm not working at my business, Untamed Alchemy, I'm working at home reclaiming our land with permaculture and engaging the magick and medicine of gardens, forests, meadows, barns, pantries, craft corners, fire pits, ceremonial circles, still rooms, and kitchens.

In 2019 I was finally diagnosed with severe ADHD: it’s no wonder most online experiences overwhelm me with their ads, pop-ups, and videos. I hate that overwhelm, so I’ve spared us both here: there are no ads on my site, nor will you be accosted by content floating over other content. You are instead invited to click to engage more actively.
Among the things there are to click, you’ll sometimes find affiliate links. I’m proud to be an affiliate for a handful of products/resources with which I personally have ongoing positive relationship. I share my affiliate links for them here to share the love–and it’s the only monetization I have placed on this site.
There is no additional cost to you.
Note, I don’t accept gifts or compensation from companies not known to me in exchange for featuring products, so, please, please, DO NOT SOLICIT.
Like all alchemy, Untamed Alchemy® celebrates the magic that happens when we combine attention, intention, energy, and wisdom to transform something into a new, changed, and more valuable something else.
The work of Untamed Alchemy empowers us to live wholly into all parts of our Selves: wild and wise, sacred and profane, magical and mundane, natural and intentional, pure and simple. Kristina brings it to life through the musings in these pages along with her botanical, aromatic, and herbal creations and holistic wellness & bodywork practice at Untamed Alchemy.
