About Flying Wild

Welcome to Flying Wild!


I am Arno the founder of Flying Wild.

 Quite a few years ago I decided to give up my career in scientific publishing and move back to the village in rural Ireland where I was raised. I was seeking a simpler life, a life lived close to nature. As a hobby I began to keep bees. From very modest beginnings I slowly nurtured ever more beehives to grow and prosper. I shared the goodness of my hives with my friends and neighbours - raw honey, beeswax candles, balms.

My passion for beekeeping has grown into Flying Wild. A small ethical rural business specialised in bringing you the very best handmade organic products for your treatments, products that have now received more than 800 5-Star reviews.  

Flying Wild is now 8 years old

Eight years ago Flying Wild was born and I took my first steps on incredible wonderful and challenging journey that has changed my life. A journey that has led me to working with, and meeting, so many amazing people who have helped, supported, and encouraged me every step of the way. It is an absolute pleasure and privilege to work with my wonderful colleagues Sarah and Susan every day. 


The philosophy behind Flying Wild holistic therapy products stems from my experience as a beekeeper. Life in a beehive centres around bees working in shared harmony, but it is always dependent on the life of one bee - the queen. The life of every bee and the unity of the hive flows from the mother queen bee, yet without the hive the queen is unable to sustain herself.

Flying Wild balms are created in the knowledge that no single ingredient makes the perfect medium – this can only be achieved with organic butters and oils working in a healing harmony. Only through a deep understanding and dedicated learning and experience of the individual carrier oils and butters, and how they complement each other, can this be created.  

Thank you for choosing Flying Wild for your treatments.
