Intention blends 2022 Holiday Gift Guide

*Black Friday sales begin on 11/25 @ 12:01 am :)


Well, here we are! The holiday season is upon us and I have so much to share with you. First and foremost, I would like to say a special thank you to anyone who made a purchase in my shop or with me in person at a market this last year. Your support of my budding, small business is what allows me to contribute to my family's finances & continue to do the work I love. In June I was able to let go of my part time job and put all of my focus on my oil business, which has been a game changer in so many ways! I have huge growth goals for 2023 and now I feel like I have the capacity to accomplish them. (I have a few more year in review biz updates at the bottom of this post!)


With the intention of presence, I created some amazing oily gifts for the holidays.



Top Left: The Winter Perfume Oil Collection - This curated collection of three Winter inspired oils is sure to delight the person who is an essential oil and fragrance lover! It also makes a great teacher's gift. This collection is an ode to the season of powdery snow and dark windy nights. In a flip open box comes three 5ml rollerball oil blends: Glisten (Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Wild Orange & Neroli), Winter Solstice (Pine, Jasmine, Cardamom, Cinnamon, Cedarwood & Vanilla), and Full Moon (Bergamot, Tulsi Basil, Grapefruit, Lavender & Geranium). This set is $24 USD + tax/shipping.


Top Right: Silver Bells Duo - This popular set sold out twice last year. This is a great stocking stuffer or grab bag gift idea. It is also a great gift for the person who appreciates a day / night fragrance combo. Glisten is a grounding blend that wears well during the day and Beloved is a spicy woody blend that is perfect for the evening! (Both are in 10ml rollerball bottles). Glisten (Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Wild Orange, & Neroli) and Beloved (Cinnamon, Clove, Black Pepper, Blood Orange, Cedarwood, Sandalwood, Rose & Orange Blossom). This set is $27 USD + tax/shipping.


Bottom Left: Winter Solstice Anointing Oil - Every year around this time I re-release this blend for those who thrive in the dark months. It also helps support those who don't do as well with the lack of sun. The combination of oils used in this blend create the aroma of a dark, clear night with a hint of bonfire smoke on the wind. The blend is made with oils of Pine, Cardamom, Jasmine, Cinnamon, Cedarwood & Vanilla. This oil comes in a 10 ml rollerball bottle and is $20 USD + tax/shipping.


Bottom Right: Witches Brew | Free Gift with any $45 Purchase - You don't even need a code! When you spend $45, you will receive this mini 5ml Witches Brew Perfume Oil. Made with essences of: White Sage, Blood Orange, Frankincense, Allspice, Patchouli & Blue Tansy. This is the perfect aroma perfume for the darker seasons.

More biz news:


One thing I am so proud of is that in this ever changing, not so great economy, I did not raise my prices. As a maker of oils, I understand that my products are a luxury, not a necessity. My supplies and ingredients did not increase by much, which enabled me to keep all of my oils at the same price point (unless the bottle and volume changed, which some did - and even then it was only a $1 increase!)


2022 also saw a complete overhaul in the presentation of my oils. I transitioned from clear to amber bottles, creating a more apothecary style aesthetic to my brand. I hired a designer to create a new logo that was vintage / folk inspired (and I love it) ~ and I hired a photographer whose work I've admired for years to capture my oils in a brand new way.


So that is where my business stands here at the end of 2022. One huge personal practice for me is to remain in presence during what is typically a "hustle" time season. I have chosen an oil to wear each day to remind me to slow down and enjoy the moment. I've got a grounding journaling practice that I intend to visit often to help me document my days and not get lost in what feels like a hurried couple of weeks.


Hoping this will be a slow but fruitful season for all of us.

Hi, I'm Bella Cirovic, founder and maker behind the oils here at Intention Blends. I have always been intrigued by scent and its ability to transport us to a time and place nestled deep in our memory. For as long as I can remember, perfumes and oils have stirred something in my soul, making me feel alive and present to the world.

​ 

I hand craft body oils, perfume oils, moon oils, and intention blends that support how a person wants to feel. I create my blends by seeking out the highest quality, all natural, and ethically sourced materials to create blends that feed the skin as well as the soul. I've managed to marry my loves of perfumery, aromatherapy, and herbalism for the purpose of lifting and supporting the mind, body, and spirit. 

As an impassioned lover of nature, I work with earth and plant medicine for deep soul examination, sacred ritual, and ceremony. You can find my handmade talismans and treasures in my online shop.

 

I consider myself a light bringer, a companion for the journey who adds a playful and trusting energy to all the circles I am invited to or a part of.
