About Wisdom of the Earth

Want to know more about us?

Wisdom of the Earth is called to offer pure, powerful, single (ingredient) essences. We do not offer blends. Our approach is to teach our clients to layer individual, non-diluted essences on the skin, allowing them to work in synergy with the body’s own intelligence. Also, we hand-pour every essence with loving intent, further enhancing its high vibrational energy…
