Sana Spices in 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.

In 2020 she opened a store/workshop in Sayulita. Here customers could step into a delightful, nostalgic and aromatic world, smell their way through jars of freshly-made spices, create handmade gifts, have a shot of locally-grown turmeric juice or a cup of relaxing tea. Chat to the spice connoisseurs about the next meal and get inspired with the new flavors. She closed the store in 2023 in order to return fully to the Farmer's Markets and spend more gardening.

With a healthy array of spices and spice mixes you have a foundation for nearly any dish that you want to prepare. Sana Spices carries unique varieties only available at her market stand! Indian Curry, Coffee Spice, Khmeli Suneli, Al Pastor, Chilaquiles Spice, Bengali Chicken Soup Spice, Four Peppers and Cardamom and many more are blended freshly every week. She also makes limited edition seasonal blends with the ingredients straight from her spice garden! Every single recipe has a story behind and a personal experience. Sana Spices has a wide range of spices grown in Mexico such as: smoked chipotle and other chillies, cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, epazote, vanilla, dill, sage, basil and many more. Her family helps her to grow saffron, cornflowers, calendula, caraway, paprika and other ingredients in Ukraine as well. Only a few: black pepper, nutmeg and cloves are imported from Zanzibar and India.

Please contact me if you would like to create a handmade gift for your loved ones or create your own spice mix! In addition to my hand-blended spice mixes, I am happy to make a custom blend to adjust to your taste, for example without garlic or onion, or with extra chile. You can contact me by email, Whatsapp or via the contact form on this page. 

New spices! We also now have Zarandeado fish (a Nayarit blend and it’s not hot mix)! 

Herbs and spices require different climates to grow and proper methods of dehydrating and keeping them fresh. In the humid places its best to keep the spices in the fridge or freezer if not used frequently. In dry climates spices stay fresh for 1-2 years.

Many store bought herb and spice blends can contain additives, anti-caking agents or MSG. Sana Spices 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. Most of our spice blends does not contain any sugar or salt, but we do have sugar rims and salts with spices as well!

Lovely Lovely spice store
My sister discovered the spice store an a walk. She is a purist regarding her spices and foods and ended up going to the store everyday during our vacation. And took the rest of us there too. The spices are blended and do not contain additives. The Chai and the coffee spice were our favorites.

Ocean Blue Tea is a must try! She grows it herself in Sayulita
I tried her Ocean Blue Iced Tea at the event in Sayulita and I so much loved it! There are no more markets for the season and the lady was so kind to harvest and cut a fresh tea blend for me personally! I have never had a fresh tea before. I can’t wait to be back when the Farmers’ Markets will start again in fall.

Love her Sayulita grown blends!
I have been her customer since I tried her Coffee Spice at friends' house. It is truly incredible amount of work she is doing in order to deliver such a tasty and pure product! I absolutely love Green Smoothie Spice with all the ingredients grown in Sayulita, Mexico. I also bought Avena Spice for my friend and she says that her kids love it in smoothies and oatmeal. I am happy that she left her spices at La Gale for the summer. Looking forward to see you in November!!

Fresh herbal tea
When I was sick I got her herbal tea fresh from the garden and It relieved my stomach pain. She usually doesn't have it at the market, but I think she should. I think it had moringa, marigolds, basil and some other herbs. Gracias!
