Announcement    Spring 2020 is like no other. Social distancing, online schooling, food and job insecurity have now become new buzzwords. As difficult as this period in our collective history may be, SanJerScents is here to offer a little fresh reminder of better days ahead.

Since the beginning of this tragic period we have switched the focus of our small, home-based fragrance operation to the production of sanitizing foams, gels, and sprays and have pledged to keep our costs as low as possible.

NOTICE: Due to nationwide shortages of plastic bottles, our inventory of bottle styles changes frequently. This does not affect the volume or quality of our liquid products. Thank you for your understanding as we all persevere through these challenging times together.

Be sure to visit us on our social media sites as well as here in our ETSY shop to see our Spring & Summer 2020 selections. As always, we appreciate your kind words and support as we continue to grow our home-based company and look forward to a return of normalcy for us all. We wish you health & healing during these challenging times. Please keep safe ❤👨‍👩‍👦‍👦👩‍👧‍👧❤

One Gel of a Story....

Several years ago, Jerry was teaching a science lesson to students with severe and profound disabilities at his school demonstrating how solids can become liquid and vice-versa. All of the materials were on the classroom table when an accident caused all of the products to fall and mix together. Fortunately, none of the materials were explosive! However, when one of the polymer agents combined with a spilled cherry kool-aid drink, the result was a gel-like substance that smelled great! This was the genesis of SanJerScents.

From that moment, we worked to refine the gel compound to include fragrances and color. Several months later, we were able to set up a small vendor table at a local school's craft fair just in time for the holidays. The response was unexpected--we sold all of our fragrance gel jars! Customers commented on how much they liked the idea of scenting without a flame and how our honeypot gel jars appealed to them. Many asked us if we sold other products, would be at other fairs, and if we had a website. After a moment of staring in silence at one another, we experienced our first "a-ha" moment! We both agreed we could use Sandi's experience as a senior-level computer programmer and web-designer to create a website for our product. Jerry spent his creative talents to create and add other hand-made aromatic products such as our iced crystal potpourri, botanical potpourri, and dry potpourri.

Forever mindful and appreciative of the events that led to the creation of our company, we contracted with the special needs school to have the students design and assemble wooden gift crates as part of their vocational education program. We could not have been more happy with the results!

Many state and county fairs, home shows, catalog publications, and in-home party demonstrations later, SanJerScents has become a local favorite featuring custom-scented home decor items for everyone at affordable prices.

As a result of continued customer request and suggestion, SanJerScents entered the realm of bath and body products with a bright and bubbly fragrant body wash and skin cream lotion enriched with evening primrose oil. We now offer a complete line of body sprays, perfume roll-ons, whipped body butters, moisturizing scrubs, and so much more.

Currently, we are hand-crafting our very own line of custom fragrance sachet envelopes that can be used in scent-marketing, weddings, as event keepsakes, unique birth announcements, and wherever a little dash of fragrance is needed.

We hope you enjoyed learning of our humble beginnings and appreciate you taking the time to browse our fragrance products here on ETSY. We would love to hear from you!

Scentfully,
Sandi & Jerry Platt
