In the beginning Ancient Wisdom was a small chain of gift shops with outlets in Sheffield and Derbyshire. In response to customer demand a ranges of original aromatherapy products were developed. These products (among them Sleep Stones) proved to be so successful that other retailers began to ask for supplies. It quickly became apparent that wholesaling to the independent gift trade was an attractive proposition. It has been this focus on customer lead demand that has been and remains a feature of our success.
Over the years the aromatherapy concept has been expanded to include a large range of giftware products including candles, crystals and incense. We now stock approaching 10,000 product lines, importing from India, Indonesia, Nepal and China supply the gift trade throughout Europe.
Operating from a modern 30,000 sq ft distribution warehouse in Sheffield we are rapidly adding to our product ranges with the intention of supplying everything a gift shop needs.
Why the name “Ancient Wisdom”?
Well it all happened about 6000 years ago... Folklore increasingly backed up by archaeology tells us that mankind was far from primitive in so called primitive times. The development of civilization and wisdom has by no means been in a steady upward direction. Stonehenge and the pyramids are substantial examples of how an ancient culture could be in advance of its descendants.
The world of aromatherapy, the mysterious properties of plants and trees, is an area in which the ancients clearly knew more than we do today. The source of this Ancient Wisdom is a matter for great debate amongst academics and theologians. Was it divine, before the flood, from the Nephilim (a mythical race of sons of God) or from aliens?
The fact is great wisdom was found and lost in a relatively short period probably about 6000 years ago.
The growing interest in aromatherapy seems to be not unconnected to the increasing interest in all things ancient and spiritual. Most people consider themselves to have a deeper gentler side. A side that likes to create a warm and welcoming home environment, to burn candles and indulge and enjoy delightful fragrances.
The Ancient Wisdom concept aims to in someway to satisfy this most basic of human need.
Four Reasons why...
Four Reasons why Ancient Wisdom is like no other Wholesale Gift Company
1. No Sales People!
It's true we don't employ sales people, you will never find us at trade shows, we will never persuade you to buy from us. No-one is getting a sales commission to sell to you. These products must be good enough to sell themselves - you can order online, it's efficient and fast, and the savings are helping your business grow and sell more.
2. Ancient Wisdom is Wholesale Only

They compete with you directly. At Ancient Wisdom we don't believe that is fair. Our job is to bring you the best in wholesale giftware, your's is to do the skillful job of retailing.
