Between packing lunches and unpacking your children’s backpack each night, it can feel as though there isn’t time left at the end of the day to take care of your wellness needs.

The products you’ll want on your back to school checklist


Gone are the days of a back to school checklist that contains only pencil crayons and binders; we want to introduce you to a whole host of products that can support you A-Z. At Saje, we offer 100% plant-based products to enhance and maintain the wellness of you and your loved ones all year-long, and we want to introduce you to some of our favorite ways to take care of yourself.


Back to school checklist: clean, healthy hands


We know that the guidelines regarding hand washing are here to stay. Many credible authorities on health, from the CDC to the World Health Organization have touted the benefits of keeping your hands clean by washing regularly, and properly, with soap and water. Our foaming hand soaps are not only cleansing, they are gentle on skin as it's exposed to more and more frequent washing. Essential oils help cleanse and ingredients like coconut oil help keep skin feeling moisturized.

Tingle Mint foaming hand soap - a bright, invigorating blend of tea tree, peppermint and rosemary essential oils for those who prefer a more uplifting scent

Liquid Sunshine foaming hand soap - a fresh, citrusy blend of essential oils like lime and grapefruit for those who prefer a zesty, boosting scent

Another way to keep your hands clean and healthy is to treat your skin to ultra hydration. If extra hand washing has left your skin feeling dry, reach for a lotion that absorbs easily, leaves your hands feeling soft for hours, and doesn’t contain any synthetics or parabens.

Healing Hands soothing hand lotion - with softening ingredients like lavender, grapeseed and aloe, this lotion provides long lasting nourishment for the hands


Back to school checklist: keep your mind sharp


Keeping yourself feeling invigorated and aware can be a challenge when you’re working or studying at home. Reaching for essential oil based products known to promote feeling balanced, refreshed and uplifted will support you in keeping sharp and tackling your to-do list.

Brainstorm roll-on - formulated with lemon, myrtle and orange, apply to temples and wrists to refresh a tired mind and help lift your spirits

Diffusing is an easy, simple way to refresh the air in your home while allowing you to create a scent experience tailored to how you want to feel. When you need that extra uplifting boost, reach for a diffuser blend kit like Pick Me Up that contains four blends known to help provide a natural lift. Ingredients found in these blends, like lemongrass, spearmint and peppermint are just the pick-me-up you need to feel productive in your home.


Back to school checklist: fresh faced to the world


Keeping your skin feeling cleansed and fresh can be challenging as we head towards the cooler months of the year and spending more time indoors. The not-so-awesome effects we may experience on our skin, like uneven tone, blotches or spots, can be soothed and eased by products formulated to be gentle and yet effective at keeping our skin nourished and happy.

Konjac Care Yam Extract - this plant-based sponge is your secret weapon in keeping skin gently exfoliated and protected against the elements. Infused with yam extract to help skin stay brightened and toned




Clay cleanse face mask - restore a healthy glow with purifying ingredients like soothing kaolin clay, absorbent charcoal powder and nourishing frankincense. Use 1-2 times per week to keep your skin feeling supple


Back to school checklist: feeling your best


Staying healthy and avoiding feeling rundown becomes extra important as we head towards cough & cold season, a time when many of us experience feeling low energy. When you need a boost to your overall wellness, reach for products with ingredients like opening eucalyptus and clearing tea tree, known in aromatherapy to help encourage taking deeper breaths, and feeling restored.

Fortified Breeze diffuser blend - cool and freshen the air you breathe with this uplifting yet soothing blend of lemon, pine needle and myrrh

Fortify Inhaler - a personal use product, perfect for scent free environments. Inhale through the nostril whenever you need a moment to feel clear, refreshed and balanced. Formulated with rosemary, geranium and a touch of cinnamon to help you feel comforted and to boost your vitality


Back to school checklist: take time for you


Tempting as it is to maintain a seemingly never-ending checklist of errands, goals and to-do’s, remembering to add your own name to the list, and to take time for self care, ensures you are giving from a full cup, and that your own wellness needs are being met.
