True Wild Botanics was created by the husband and wife team, Scott Ward and Nisreen Azar. With their shared philosophy of environmental stewardship and health consciousness, Scott and Nisreen set out to develop products that support the wellbeing of humans and of the earth. The formulas they originally cultivated in their small kitchen have evolved into the True Wild product range that continues to bloom.
Born in Vermont and raised in rural Pennsylvania, Scott has always revered the resilience, strength, and diversity of America’s natural landscapes. His formal training in writing, literature, and publishing naturally led him to…horticulture. While working at a nursery and volunteering for a botanic garden in Southern California, Scott turned his passion into profession and developed his own business in landscape and gardening. His symbiosis with plants and herbs continues with over a decade of gardening and work with the earth. Scott likes to say he’s “humbled every day” by nature, and it inspires his own quest for self improvement and optimum health.
Diverse landscapes spanning the Middle East to the Pacific Northwest shaped Nisreen's passion for adventure, wellness and the pursuit of beauty. Her formal training in Studio Art and Landscape Architecture led her to work in the fields of landscape design and ecological restoration. This propelled her exploration into herbalism, ethnobotany, and the transformative power of nature on the body and spirit. She is now dedicated to create products that draw nature, health and beauty closer to everyday life.
