Announcement   I will be away visiting family from Aug. 28th until Sept 4th. All orders will be sent out on Sept 5th. Thank you!

I've traveled to India and learned incense and perfume making in Mysore from an amazingly kind and gifted teacher. In Rajasthan I sat with beautiful Mamas on the floors of their kitchens learning the art of masala making. Perfumery for your food!

A light and spicy fragrance that subtly colours a summer morning, as I wait for my train to town, savouring the last coolness of the night which will soon give way to the heat of the day... Such delicate moments have to be felt with all our senses, and this perfume is the perfect companion on that journey :)

Fair warning! This coffee is incredibly addictive! :D If you like spicy chai, or the classic arabic coffee with cardamon, then this is for you! (If you're not into these slightly intensive spices, run :P ) And don't worry about complicated brewing instructions (although I recommend to try them at least once!) I just throw 2 piled tbs coffee and 1 piled tsp into my french press, add 500ml boiling water, let it brew for about 4 minutes, add 500ml of milk and press it. Awesome coffee! Also, thanks so much for shipping international! Vielen Dank aus Deutschland!

A gorgeous photo. It shipped fast and is printed on good paper. All I need now is to find the right frames for it and it's going on my wall.

About

It's all been leading to this....

Even as a child I insisted on smelling everything I saw before believing if it was good or not. I remember it driving my Mom crazy! That natural curiosity lead me to aromatherapy training in 1996 - 97, turning into a body care line for 8 years. Perfumery has always been a passion and these last few years it has been back at the fore front of my life.
I've traveled to India and learned incense making in Mysore from an amazingly kind and gifted teacher. In Rajasthan I sat with beautiful Mama's on the floors of their kitchens learning the art of masala making. Perfumery for your food!
It was on this last trip that I was given the name Chamela Giri at the Khumba Mela in Haridwar which roughly means white lotus of the mountain.
I'm very excited it has all led me to this etsy community! Thanks for taking the time to check out what I've been up to.

Payment
Usually payment is through PayPal, but I have also had success with E checks and email money transfers. Convo me if you have any questions or special needs.
Shipping
I live in a rural area, but luckily right across from the post office. I'm usually able to do next day shipping, three at the very latest, for my perfumes and masalas. For the photography it can take up to a week depending on how busy the printer is. Most often thou it is only 3 business days. I will let you know as soon as your item is shipped.
I wanted to offer the lowest shipping rates I could, so I generally ship regular Canada Post. I'm quite happy with it and items seem to be arriving fairly quickly, but if you'd like insurance, tracking or express please just let me know and I'll get you a quote right away.
Any shipping excess of $1 or more will be refund.
