Oval soap bars of Chamomile & Clay Shaving Soap surrounded by loose chamomile buds on a purple patterned fabric.
Ladies, this soap is for you! (Not that a guy couldn’t use it for his shaving needs as well, but we were thinking of women when we created this soap.) The scent is a pretty universal cedarwood and orange from essential oils. So who needs to get their summer legs […]

Spring is here, and the dandelions are blooming like crazy! The bright color of the dandelions inspired me to make a batch of soap with a dandelion “tea” as my liquid. While herbal teas may not seem to be particularly adventurous for soapmaking, I’ve found them to add a little […]

Spring Break for TheSage Crew

Summer is coming, and I love to wear sandals and show off my pedicure. But unless you can afford to get a new pedicure every few days, your feet will start getting dry and calloused between visits to the salon. I created this overnight foot cream in hopes of keeping […]

Illipe Butter Overnight Foot Cream

Illipe Nut Butter and Cocoa Butter have many similarities, and I wanted to see how they would stack up against one another in a bar of soap. Cocoa Butter is often considered a great choice to help make a firmer bar. Let’s see if Illipe Nut Butter will do the […]
