Sana Spices Sayulita was founded in 2015 by Oksana Oliinyk. She is a merchant of the highest quality, hand-selected, hand-prepared spices and herbs. “Sana” is a combination of two languages. In Turkish it means “you” and in Spanish it means ”healthy”. This describes her goal.
All spices originate from plants: seeds, flowers, fruits, leaves, barks, and roots. Some plants are useful and tasty in teas just as well as in the spice blend. Some are proper for meals only. Herbs and spices not only improve the taste of foods, but can help preserve them for longer periods of time. They have anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiviral properties. Most of herbs and spices are very high in vitamins and trace minerals. True sea salt, for example, has 84 trace minerals. Most herbs and spices also contain more disease-fighting antioxidants than fruits and vegetables.
With a healthy array of spices and spice mixes, you have a foundation for nearly any dish that you want to prepare. SanaSpicesSayulita carries unique varieties only available in Sayulita! Curry, Coffee Spice, Khmeli Suneli, Golden Latte Spice, Bengali Chicken Soup Spice, Four Peppers and Cardamom and many more are blended freshly every week. Every single recipe has a story behind and a personal experience. I aim to recreate authentic world-famous blends and create more of my own mixes using pure spices and herbs. SanaSpicesSayulita also has a wide range of spices such as: Mexican smoked chipotle pepper, turmeric, cayenne, Ukrainian chives, sage, dill, Georgian marigold, Iranian saffron etc.
Please contact me for orders of spice blends in Sayulita. In addition to my hand-blended spice mixes, I am happy to make a custom blend to adjust to your taste, for example without cumin or pepper, or with extra chile. You can contact me by email or phone via the contact form on this page. On the Farmer's Market (Mercado del Pueblo) days in Sayulita, freshly-squeezed Turmeric root juice can also be found at my stand. They are sold as a shot or per bottle. A bottle usually contains around 5 shots. The Mercado del Pueblo is open Fridays Nov-May but you can contact me anytime in Sayulita for spice orders.
Herbs and spices require different climates to grow and proper methods of dehydrating and keeping them fresh. A lot of my spices and herbs are often locally grown in Mexico, some are brought from a foreign country or grown in my garden in Ukraine. Aromatic herbs are often used to prepare Herb Pillows for restful sleep.
Many store bought herb and spice blends can contain additives, anti-caking agents or MSG. SanaSpicesSayulita is taking extra care to provide pure spices, herbs and blends of the best quality. For that reason, sizes of the packaging varies from extra small to large.
