EXPLORE SELF-CARE ITEMS THAT CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN YOUR LIFE

 

We know that self-care doesn’t have one definition. In fact, it has no simple definition! Part of the beauty of self-care is that it’s largely undefined, creating space for each of us to decide what it means to us.

We can tell you with certainty what self-care is not. It definitely isn’t:

  • A set of prescribed rules or bullets to add to your to-do list
  • A reason to be hard on yourself or engage in negative self-talk
  • Obligations you feel compelled to show up for, attend or take part in

WE BELIEVE IN WELLNESS FOR ALL

We wholeheartedly believe that engaging in self-care should feel enhancing, it should feel supportive, it should elevate your mindset, it should feel purposeful and overall, it should serve to support your overall continued good health and well-being.

One of the many ways in which you can invest in self-care is through the use of beauty and cosmetic products that help to support your skincare, body care and everything in between. Most of us are familiar with using various products throughout our days for hygiene and enjoyment purposes, but not all of us think about the quality of the products we’re engaging with and what a difference that can make.

Here at Saje, when we say 100% natural, we truly mean it. In part, we’re working to redefine wellness by prioritizing pure and clean ingredients above all else. We believe in nature and its ability to soothe ailments, calm the mind and invoke feelings of joy—that’s why we make plant-based products to power every aspect of your life.

Read on to learn about 10 new and well-loved favorite wellness products to help enhance your self-care routines and practices.

SELF-CARE ITEMS TO BRING A LITTLE SUNSHINE TO YOUR DAY

 

Far and away the most popular scent we offer at Saje is the sweet, bright and cheerful notes that can be found as part of our Liquid Sunshine collection. Liquid Sunshine is comprised of crisp and tart citrus oils that can help provide a natural boost and that encourage a sunny disposition. We’ve recently added two new products to the collection as part of our body care category to help support your wellness from head to toe.

Liquid Sunshine Jute & Joy is a soap-filled wash pad made from a compostable and biodegradable vegetable fiber called jute, which when washed and spun into fabric helps provide a mild exfoliation and rejuvenating cleanse for the body. Inside the jute pouch is our cleansing and naturally fragrant soap, made with essential oils of orange, lemon, lime, lemongrass and tangerine. Saturate the wash pad until softened under warm water and scrub the body in a circular motion for cleansing and sloughing of dry skin cells.

Liquid Sunshine hand cream is a rich and buttery cream formulated specifically to soothe dryness and chapping on the hands. We created this product to feel thick and luxurious on the skin while absorbing easily and never leaving the hands feeling greasy. We’ve blended a nourishing base of argan oil, shea butter and oat extract with essential oils of orange, mandarin, lime and palmarosa for skin that is deeply hydrated and smells fantastic.

SELF-CARE ITEMS TO HELP ELEVATE YOUR SKIN CARE ROUTINE

 

Another one of the ways we like to indulge in self-care is by pampering our skin. Recently, we launched four brand new skincare lines to support all skin types and skincare goals, and we are excited to be able to add new and exciting products to this category.

Bright Eyes eye cream is a rich and renewing eye cream formulated for all skin types and especially well-suited for dry and mature skin types. This cream is hydrating, smooth, light and easy to spread, and has a fresh, apple-like sweet and herbaceous scent. We’ve formulated this blend with innovative ingredients like eyebright, an extract from the flowers of the same-named plant that is well-regarded for its ability to provide a bright appearance to the eye area and guarana, an antioxidant and caffeine-rich extract designed to help support blood flow to the skin. Gently pat a small amount of cream under the eyes and up to the brow bone in both the morning and evening time for smooth, hydrated skin.

Claritea Blemish Care is a spot treatment roll-on that’s been formulated to target breakouts and blemishes. This targeted treatment has been reformulated to include pore-clearing and clarifying jojoba and black cumin seed carrier oils alongside an effective essential oil formula of tea tree, geranium, roman chamomile and patchouli to help balance, soothe and cleanse the skin when used as a spot treatment. To use, simply dab Claritea directly onto spots on the face, neck and chest as needed.

SELF-CARE ITEMS TO FILL YOUR HOME WITH AMBIENCE AND DÉCOR

 

Another one of the ways we partake in self-care is through the act of diffusing. Diffusers serve a multitude of purposes, and in this case, we’re speaking directly to the way they allow us to add a beautiful, sculptured art piece to our homes to help elevate our aesthetic experience.

Aside from being gorgeous to look at, diffusers create negative ions to elevate your well-being and they help refresh the air in our spaces. Below are two of our go-to's for their beauty and their brawn.

Aroma Om white ceramic: classic, timeless and chic, this diffuser is well-loved by our community as a unit that is as beautiful as it is functional. Well-suited for small to medium rooms like bedrooms, home offices and bathrooms, the Aroma Om offers a continuous run time of three hours, an intermittent run time of six hours and an optional LED light feature for an extra chill experience.

Aroma Om deluxe stone: our largest and longest running diffuser, the Aroma Om deluxe stone is a brilliant mix of fashion and function. We designed this large unit for open concept spaces and bigger rooms, like living rooms, dining rooms and some bedrooms. Boasting an impressive run time of between 11-22 hours based on a high or low setting, this diffuser can also be programmed to run in intervals of one, three or six hours with an optional LED light feature as well.

SELF-CARE ITEMS TO FILL YOUR HOME WITH NATURAL FRAGRANCES

 

Now of course, if you’re thinking about adding a diffuser to your home as part of your self-care rituals, you’re going to want to consider the pure, 100% natural diffuser blends you’ll want to include with it.

People typically choose diffuser blends according to two criteria; the use case (when and where they intend to use it) and the scent profile preference (citrus, floral, woody, as examples). In this article we’re showcasing two different blends according to use case, which means we’ve selected one blend we like to diffuse in the daytime to feel boosted and enlivened, and one blend we like to diffuse in the evening time to feel rested and at ease.

In the daytime, we love the fresh, minty and herbaceous notes of Deep Breath. This blend is the perfect mix of a day at the spa and a deep breath on a crisp morning, which helps us to feel revitalized and naturally stimulated. Deep Breath is formulated with eucalyptus, lemon, peppermint, marjoram and lavender.

In the evening time, we reach for the soothing and peaceful notes of Tranquility. A fan-favorite, this blend encourages us to breathe deeply, begin to feel relaxed and seek to unwind for a restful night’s sleep. Tranquility is formulated with orange, lavender, marjoram, ylang ylang and roman chamomile.

SELF-CARE ITEMS TO SUPPORT YOUR WELLNESS RITUALS

 

The last category of products we’re showcasing today are those that may be used to support wellness rituals like meditation, journaling, yoga, breathwork and more. These are products that inspire mindfulness, thoughtful and intentional self-discovery and those that make you feel balanced and in harmony.

Yoga roll-on is a blissful, sweet, earthy and grounding blend that was formulated to help you find your center, wherever you go. Peaceful patchouli, uplifting orange and comforting neroli may be applied to areas like the pulse points, behind the ears, along the sides of the neck and on the wrists and elbow creases as desired for a moment of calm.

Yoga body butter is a rich, luxurious and deeply nourishing body treatment that helps to plump, soften, smooth and nourish the skin. The base of this product is three different butters, shea, mango seed and cocoa seed to protect the skin’s moisture barrier and soothing, balancing essential oils like vetiver, cedarwood, cardamom, neroli, bergamot and ho wood to calm your worries and balance the senses.
