Working with essential oils is a multi-faceted experience. There are so many layers within the physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies that they are able to support. Understanding the interconnectedness of how they work and integrate within us is complex, but working with them does not have to be. 

They meet you where you are and assist you in connecting with the intrinsic knowledge within the body. Like the plants and trees our bodies are part of the Earth and by working with them we are better able to understand ourselves.

I have been working with Wisdom of the Earth (WOTE) essential oils for over 15 years and have been teaching the certification course since 2017. I am still constantly in awe on how much further the oils can take me, how much more there is to learn and experience with them, as well as how simple they are to begin with for someone that has never worked with them.

Wisdom of the Earth Essential Oils

Wisdom of the Earth is a small education focused company near Sedona.  Owner, and co-founder Audre Gutierrez works directly with small farmers from around the world to ensure that all the oils are grown with reverence to our Mother Earth. 

They are hand poured with loving and healing intentions. They are single sourced, and never blended. This maintains the pure essence of the plant itself. 

Growing conditions change from year to year, so each new batch may vary in scent, carrying the energy of the soil, time, and place it was grown in.


Essential oil usage is very individualized, what works for one person may not hold true for another.

Oils by Moon Phases

Waxing Moon

The new moon is a time to plant the seeds of that which we want to manifest in to our physical reality.  As the moon continues to grow we want to nourish what we are creating so it can grow. Anoint the belly to activate the sacral, and the heart to get in touch with your deepest desires. 

Green Cardamom a seed that opens the heart and energizes

Nutmeg a seed that nourishes the sacral helping us create

Red Spruce​ assists in knowing and manifesting our passions

Full Moon

The full moon is a culmination of our work, a time to celebrate what we have done, and let go of what is no longer in alignment with our highest good.   

Grapefruit the fullness of this juicy fruit reminds of our own abundance.

White Sage clears our energy field and leads us home

Hyssop pushes us to forgive and let go, as she reminds us of our wholeness

Waning Moon

As the moon becomes smaller in the night sky she invites us to go within to that quiet place where we can rest and receive. The last quarter moon into the next new moon, sometimes referred to as the dark moon is one of the best times to tune into the cosmos to receive wisdom, allowing it to integrate before the cycle begins again.

Balsam Gurjun softens our edges and quiets the body and mind

Ginger Lily encourages us to slow down and digest our experiences.

All phases

The element of water and the color white are closely associated with the moon, and there are several to choose from, Sandalwood from the South Pacific and brings with her the island wisdom and the ebb and flow of the tides. Jasmine's white flowers permeate the night air when they are in bloom reminding us of our strength and sensuality.  All of the Lotus blossoms can assist in working with the moon, White Lotus holds a special place with her soft wisdom, this sacred flower grows in the water and shines bright white in the moonlight.  Mugwort moves stagnant energy and reminds us that we are constant moving through our own cycles. Ocean Pine reminds us to breathe and give ourselves strong roots as we move through the changes in our lives.
