Aroma Sanctum and a New Giveaway

The winner of the Stonewall Kitchen basket is: Chris (Yalco) Send me your info Chris and I will ship it right out to you!

This week's giveaway is for two vials of perfume from one of my favorite Salem stores, Aroma Sanctum.


This wonderful store is owned by Akuura Kulak who has been designing perfumes since 1980. I am very sensitive to regular perfumes. I hate the chemical smell emitted by them. They quite literally make me sick. When I found Aroma Sanctum I knew I was in luck.




Click for a closer look. Akuura will work with you to create your own personal scent. Or you can select from the oils or the blends she has created.


She can also recreate your favorite perfume without using alcohol or chemicals of any kind.


These oils are highly concentrated and a 1/4 oz. bottle will last a year or more with daily use.


I buy a assortment of different scents and mix them together myself.


I often mix a patchouli, musk and October Moon together. I turn the bottle over on my wrist and just allow the oil to touch it and the scent is very longlasting. You don't even need to use a whole drop.


Akuura keeps your custom mix on file so you can reorder whenever you need more.


She will also make your custom scent into soap, bath gel or body mist. These are also offered in all the scents she stocks.


If you are allergic to regular perfumes chances are you will tolerate these oils much better.


If you are ever in Salem you really should stop by the store and try out some of the oils.



But you can also order online at: www.aromasanctum.com


You will be glad you did. There is really nothing quite like it anywhere else.


These are some of the oils I bought this year. Witchfire is a new one for me and I have worn it every day since I got it.


Make sure to enter this week's giveaway to win two of these lovelies for yourself. Or maybe win them for your girlfriend, wife or mother.


This giveaway includes two vials of oil; China Musk and October Moon.


Also included is this black leather pouch with a skull to keep your oils in. And a Belgium lace sachet which will hold a cotton ball scented with the oil for perfuming your lingerie drawer.

I purchased these myself and did not receive anything from Aroma Sanctum to showcase their store. The value of this giveaway is over 50.00.

To enter just leave a comment on this post. If you are not a follower, sign on to follow. The winner will be announced next Saturday and a new giveaway listed at that time.

This is perfect! Love personal mixtures and would love to try that October Moon... Have Teddy drop it off and I will have a big bowl of her favorite anything... I swear! What a great shop that is! I know you have to be dragged away... Come visit when you can...
Nydia said…
You're way too generous, Jaz! What a wonderful giveaway.

I love that she doesn't use any chemical in her perfumes. I have a big problem because I could never find a scent that I call "mine", you know what I mean? It's never the perfect one. Something tells me that maybe here I'll find it! If I don't win the giveaway (crossing fnogers and toes, though! lol),I'll end up odering a custom perfume from her beautiful shop. Thanks for this awesome review!

Kisses fmo Nydia.

You find the most interesting shops!
Judith said…
Yes, I need to go to salem!!! but in the meantime, enter me in the contest! :)
When I lived in Charleston, S.C. there was a very tiny shop like this. Nothing as special as here. I really don't want my perfume to get there 15 minutes before me and last an hour after I'm gone. Thanks for the ordering info.
Pattie said…
Oh, thank you for these! I am into aromatherapy and I too, cannot stand regular perfume.
I am a loyal follower of your blog and I love it.

What a cool shop. I can only imagine what the scents created here must smell like. I also don't care for the chemical odor of most commercial perfumes. With the holidays coming, I will keep this place in mind for a unique gift for my wife.

By the way, thanks again for picking me for last week's give away. I look forward to receiving it. I emailed you with my contact info a little while ago.

Have an enjoyable weekend!
Fire Witch said…
OMG, this store looks so cool. I'm going to the website right now. I love oils and perfumes and the fact that she can recreate any perfume but without chemicals is pretty awesome. What a cool giveaway, btw!
Kristen said…
Yep I am so in for this one! I can't wear the perfumes that are out now so this would be so awesome! I so need to go to Salem!
Tournesol said…
I love patchouli too, the best scent. Please enter me! I wish I had some of that wonderful looking granola this morning already made, looks great and full of good for you ingredients. Yum
Amy said…
Sounds lovely!!
What a cool place! As usual, count me in :)
Kat said…
Wow, thanks for sharing this store with us. I too am allergic to perfume and have been using essential oils for fragrance for years but this looks to be a step up from what I currently use so thanks for sharing the link and yes, add me to the give-away please.

Making that italian loaf today...mmmm

Jaz, you did it again! This is an awesome shop!! I just tweeted it. Over the last month I've been ordering essential oils online from 3 or 4 shops and two shops on etsy mostly for the rare, exotic and witchy oils that I don't have. This is a great shop for all the stock that she has. I noticed that she has alot of fragrances too and I might just get some musk from her. I already ordered the pure ambrette seed oil to use for musk, but it's pricey. And, it's nice to know that you recommend her, as that's been the missing part when I order online. Thanks so much!!
Faerie Sage said…
What a wonderful giveaway! I have a hard time with perfumes as well so I will have to have a look at this store...
Thanks again!

Oh yum, I love finding shops like this - the scents sound delicious and evocative! Commercial scents tend to turn to straight alcohol on me, so I stick to fragrances like this.
Pallas Renatus said…
Is anyone else terribly interested in what the "October Farm" smells like? lol! Count me in =)
First of all congratulations to Yalco (Chris)!

Those names are intriguing! Like October moon and Witch fire, those names really start ones imagination!

Have a great day now!

SpiritWings said…
What a great store!! So glad you shared this with us.
I too am having problems with perfumes and lotions. Maybe it is my body changing or maybe it is what they are using in the products now, but I am using more and more organic products.
I would love to be included in your drawing!

TheBlakkDuchess said…
What a wonderful store you found! =D

But back to the bread... Omigoodness... It's the best bread I've made yet. Everyone I fed it to just about melted into pools of bliss. XD

I'm about to make more biga so I can make another loaf, as the one I baked yesterday afternoon is already demolished. ^-^

Again, many, many thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe!

What a generous giveaway. With allergies, perfumes are usually a no, no, but these might be great. This looks like a wonderful shop!
Sharon Lovejoy said…

How unique to have your own fragrance made.. Wonderful post.
Congratulations to the latest winner of "Teddy's Treats".

Very interesting post. This is a wonderful idea! Love the shop and wish I could visit.

Once upon a time I purchased a vial of scented oils for my sun sign Virgo. It was fabulous! I lost it!

Please put my name in the hat!

Blessings.

I used to mix my own blends for aroma therapy. It's fun sniffing the various essential oils and blending them in interesting ways.
Autumnforest said…
I love being able to mix scents. I used to make my own but got too busy. Now, I would seriously love some new scents. What a dream job!

Ann said…
Love the name of that shop. Aroma Sanctum just sounds like a little bit of heaven :) I recently discovered that I LOVE the scent of patchouli, I bought some incense over the summer and it was fabulous.
Sparkless said…
I'd love to win. These scents sound lovely.
BelladonnasJoy said…
Thanks so much for your recommendations on the musk.
TheBlakkDuchess said…
I used rapid rise yeast, so it looked about ready after 12 ish hours. I let it sit for the whole 24, though, but I might pull it after 12 tonight... ^-^

I'm also going to make it half with rye flour & see how that turns out. I'll let you know. And then I'm making a cinnamon & sugar loaf for my in-laws who are coming over Monday morning. I'm excited... (for the bread... lolz...)

I'll have to look up some pics of those German trees... What a fun tradition! XD

xoxo

Lois said…
I have just found your blog and feel as though I've died and gone to a little blog-heaven. The food, the garden the witch pottery all have intrigued me beyond description! Your stained glass window and garden... I'm hooked. And I'm highly sensitive to most scents, but live in Canada, so don't include me unless you are accustomed to including out-of-country followers. I will certainly join as a follower, and keep creeping through your past posts. Lois from Ontario!
Marvellous shop - wish I could visit.
I'm an aromatherapist and do a little mixing myself, but this is heavenly!
Sus said…
What a lovely giveaway! I cannot usually wear store bought perfumes because they give me a headache...but oils work!
nightowl said…
Would love to win these scents. Looks like a great shop.

petoskystone said…

Wendy said…
Wow, Jaz...everytime I see your giveaways, I'm convinced that YOU"RE the real "Santa Claus" or the female pagan version of him ;) I use oils everyday and I would so love to win these. I am most definitely a follower and thank you so much for another incredible giveaway. I know Teddy had her paws in this someway ;)
Birgit said…
Hi Jaz,

That store is amazing -- just wonderful!

What a wonderful prize, too. Is it possible to raise the odds for someone else? I just read Wendy's from The Year Of Cats comment and would love to give my entry to her this time.

A heartfelt thanks for your generosity. (((Joyce)))

Wow, what a fantastic giveway! I thought I had entered but didn't see my comment above so if I inadvertantly entered twice it's not my intent but I want to make sure I enter!!

Thank you for this lovely opportunity and have a blessed day!
I'd love to be able to wear perfume again- commercial scents just give me a headache, and I usually end up having to scrub off the scent from the wrist I've very lightly misted. Thanks for the lovely link!
Ohh please pick meee :) Looks absolutely lovely! Fantastic blog!

These sound wonderful just like your blog! I also cannot tolerate "manufactured over-the-counter" perfumes. I get mad headaches and then my sight gets blurry! Count me in!

What a fun and lovely giveaway Jazz...please do count me in? I cannot tolerate over the counter products anymore...my skin is very sensitive. I do have one bottle of Patchouli Oil that is about to give up the ghost and winning this would be tantamount to bliss! :) I'm fast on my way to go check her shop out, so thanks for the heads up!

I really enjoyed looking at your photo's today...Winter is right at our doorstep, isn't it? It was 28 degrees here this morning but the shine is shining down so beautifully that I don't care...I love winter anywho!

Many Blessings and Congrats to the Last Winner!!! :)
