Twelve Days of Oils…The WOTE Way!

Twelve Days Of Oils...The WOTE Way!

Essential oils

According to tradition, Christmas Day is the beginning of the 12 days of Christmas. The period is said to be viewed by Christians as the amount of time it took the three magi, or wise men, to travel to Bethlehem for the Epiphany, the revelation of Jesus Christ as the savior and the son of God. Other regions or cultures consider the last day as the day Jesus was baptized.  Whatever your understanding of the origin of the Twelve Days of Christmas, it is celebrated by song and tradition in many regions around the world with well-wishes, gift-giving, and festivities.

We put our heads together at Wisdom of the Earth and identified our 12 favorite essences to celebrate the Holiday Season.  We considered aromas; the emotions that the Holiday evokes; the stresses that can result from travel, family dynamics and financial strain; and the propensity to eat and drink more than usual, which can wreak havoc in our digestive system.  Here they are!

Day 1:  Cardamon Seed (Green) 5 ml $23
Day 2:  Fir, Grand 5 ml $30
Day 3:  Frankincense (Somalia) Boswellia carterii 5 ml $24
Day 4:  Juniper Berry (Albania) 5 ml $22
Day 5:  Laurel Leaf $21
Day 6:  Lavender (Albania) 5 ml $21
Day 7:  Myrrh 5 ml $25
Day 8:  Peppermint (US) 15 ml $21
Day 9:  Pine, Red 5 ml $22
Day 10: Rosemary verbenone 5 ml $21
Day 11: Spruce, Blue 5 ml $22
Day 12: Ylang Ylang 5 ml $21

Purchase all 12 for $273 (plus $18 S&H), and receive a free 5 ml of the wonderful Black Frankincense, a $20 value.  The set comes with a festive bag and the accompanying brochure (shown below, printed on parchment paper).  Click here to purchase the Collection:  .  Of course, you may buy them separately, as well!

We will feature each, with the description of how the essential oil supports us during the Holiday Season, on our Facebook and Instagram posts, starting with Christmas Day.

A Fond Farewell to Robin Michaels
Robin has decided to return to her full-time massage practice, and will be leaving Wisdom of the Earth at the end of the year.  She has been the person lovingly and accurately pulling and packing the numerous orders that come to WOTE customers throughout the US and globally.  We wish her well as she returns to her calling of providing excellent body work to clients in the Verde Valley, as well as those who visit our beautiful area.
