Welcome to the Shining Sun Aromatherapy Store!
The focus of the Store is Wisdom of the Earth (WOTE) Essential Oils & Hydolats, however, I also offer related products such as AromaKits (described in detail on the AromaKit page of this website), books, and pendulums.
As described in the Essential Oils section of this site, WOTE essences are completely pure…no additives, nothing subtracted, no carrier oils, etc. Our essences are exactly as they come from the plant or tree, with the small exception of Absolutes…essences that have been produced via chemical extraction instead of steam distillation or cold pressing. At this time, only about 3% of our essences are Absolutes, and this is noted in bold on the front of the label. Violet, Osmanthus, Jasmine, Vanilla and Tuberose are examples of Absolutes in our portfolio.
Before you order…
We hand-pour all of our essences, and appreciate the increased healing power and vibration this important step conveys to each bottle of essential oil. Because our essences are not cut with carrier oil or diluted in any way, and because they have been hand-poured, they are considerably more powerful (intense) than most essences available in the general marketplace. For this reason, we ask that customers who are not used to this level of potency contact us before placing an order so that we can discuss your needs and essence options. There is no charge for this conversation.
For those familiar with high-potency, medicinal-grade essences, we invite you to explore our offerings, and experience the difference conscious farming or wild crafting and intentional pouring of the essences makes.
Ecommerce is coming to Shining Sun Aromatherapy!
In the coming months, we will be integrating a shopping cart functionality into this website. However, at present, we are processing orders the “old fashioned way”…which has served us and our clients well for many, many years!!
How to order
Specifically, you may call (505-438-0855 or my cell: 928-300-5090) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or through the Contact Us section of this website, to place your order for essential oils/other products or to register for a class. Please check the site for pricing on classes and click here SSA Website Pricelist REV May 1 2015 to find prices for essences and hydrolats. Click the Order Form link to print out a form so that you can easily organize and calculate your purchase.
Please note that pricing is subject to change, so it is good to confirm your order total. You can also request a confirmation of the total, with shipping, before the order is filled.
When ordering essential oils, please be sure to:
Indicate the essence you want (specify variety or species if more than one of that type is available…for example, Eucalyptus, True or Eucalyptus, Lemon instead of just Eucalyptus; Cistus, Steam Distilled or Cistus, Absolute, instead of just Cistus).
Specify the size of bottle you would like to order. Not all essences come in all sizes; if the pricelist does not show a price across from a size, then that essence does not come in that size. Common sizes are 5 ml (approx. 150 drops); 15 ml (approx. 450 drops) and 4 oz (120 ml). Some of the more rare (and more expensive essences) come in 1 ml (approx. 30 drops) or 2 ml (approx. 60 drops) sizes.
Assure that you have the correct price for the size you would like.
You can pay by Credit Card or PayPal for immediate delivery, or with a Check, which will take about a week longer. Once we receive the check, we will process the order.
For Credit Card sales, we need the credit card number, the expiration date of the card, and your shipping address, cell, home or office phone number, and email address (to allow us to quickly contact you in the event that we have questions about your order), and the street number/PO Box number and the Zip Code of the BILLING ADDRESS for the card. If it is the same as your shipping address, there is no need to provide it again.
If you are paying by check, please verify the total order amount (including shipping) with me, and then send a check in that amount, payable to Audre Gutierrez, to Shining Sun Aromatherapy, 51 N. Shining Sun, Santa Fe, NM 87506.
Please note that we do not offer refunds, so please order carefully. We are happy to exchange or offer store credit for items returned in unopened/new condition.
And always….know that you can call with questions about any of my offerings. I am happy to answer questions or make suggestions for particular situations. If a situation is very complicated or serious, I may suggest that a consultation would be in order, as a simple recommendation may not be appropriate.
Currently, we do not provide an individual description of each of our essences on this site (that will be coming with the shopping cart); if you are unfamiliar with an essence and its primary attributes, feel free to call or email me, and I would be happy to overview its properties with you and determine if it is a suitable one for your needs! We also offer the Wisdom of the Earth Reference Guide ($20), which provides an extensive profile of each essence, including country of origin, plant part used to produce the oil, color, energy, temperature (i.e., hot or cold to the skin), skin sensitivity and primary physical, emotional and spiritual properties.
We typically do not provide samples of essences, as we are a “mom and pop” operation, and usually do not have the time/resources to pour and ship samples.
All sales are final; we can exchange essences or other products only if they are in new, unopened condition for store credit or other products. Of course, if there is a mistake in filling the order, a refund can be made, if necessary.
Gift Certificates can be purchased for amounts of $25 or more. 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 the wonderful world of plant and tree essences for emotional, physical and spiritual well-being!
