Customers New to Shining Sun Aromatherapy
If you are new to Shining Sun Aromatherapy or Wisdom of the Earth medicinal grade essences, please read on for important information regarding essence potency, bottle sizes, etc. before shopping.
Ordering Information – Aromatherapy
Our hand-poured, undiluted essential oils are considerably more powerful than most essences found in stores. Thus, I ask that, if you are not familiar with this level of potency, please contact me before placing an order so that we can discuss your interests and essence options: 505-438-0855 (office); 928-300-5090 (cell) or firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no charge for this conversation. If you are familiar with medicinal-grade essences, please take a moment to review the ordering information below…and then visit the On-Line Store area to experience the difference conscious farming/wild crafting and intentional hand-pouring of the essences makes. If you have brief questions about what essences would be effective for a straight-forward situation, please call me and I will be happy to offer suggestions. If the situation is not clear-cut, or is complex in nature, scheduling a consultation may be the suitable approach in fairness to you, to me, and to the oils.
Ordering Information – Books/Services
Books: The Wisdom of the Earth Reference Guide ($25), provides an extensive profile of our essences, including country of origin, plant part used, color, energy, temperature, skin sensitivity and primary physical, emotional and spiritual properties. Wisdom of the Earth Speaks ($20), by Barry Kapp, founder of Wisdom of the Earth, is a great offering of his philosophies about life and our relationship to the Plants & Trees; stories about experiences that shaped his outlook, and from his work with the essences; and profiles of over 30 individual essential oils, including Helichrysum, Mugwort, Peppermint and Vetiver.
Services: Gift Certificates can be purchased in increments of $25, up to $300. This amount can be applied to any product or to personal consultations. This makes a wonderful gift for someone facing a health challenge or for someone eager to explore plant and tree essences for emotional, physical and spiritual well-being. Consultations are available in 30 minute increments, priced at $75 per increment. Most consultation run 1 hour, but much can be accomplished in a 30 minute consultation, also. Once a consultation service is purchased, I will be in contact to schedule the appointment.
How to order
Please view/print out the price list for sizes and prices of our essential oils, hydrolats and AromaKits. Prices are subject to change, though I make every effort to keep the pricing in the shopping cart up to date. Download SSA 080817 WOTE Price List.
A clarification about bottle size: Our standard size essential oil is 15 ml (milliliter) – see amber bottles in picture at left), compared to many companies which offer a 10 ml size as standard. On average, a 15 ml bottle holds 450 drops of essential oil. Some of the more costly essences are offered in 5, 2 and/or 1 ml sizes, as well. Please note that, unless the essence is part of an AromaKit, 1 & 2 ml essences will come in a 5 ml bottle, so that we can use our standard label, which contains important botanical and usage information. 5 ml bottles are cobalt blue, and have the blue label as shown at left. Hydrolats come in a standard size of 120 ml (4 oz), and are the large cobalt blue bottles at left.
