Gemstone Healing Necklaces by Sage

Throughout my life and history of my brand, my focus on the beautiful, powerful and rawness of nature has created so much beauty in the work I do. Exploring the pureness of nature in my surroundings have given me true insight into creating products that make a difference in peoples lives. If you have been following my blog, you will have read about how gemstones have always played  a  huge part in the Sage Lifestyle brand. The fragrances I have created have been inspired by different gemstones in nature. According to Benjamin Dean, “Gemstones sing their incredible songs of structure, balance, wavelength and frequency and can bring us back into harmony. Gemstones are living creatures. They are active participants in nature. Nature is an exploration of possibility through patterns that work in balance, creating the living, behaving, and interactive world that we all live in—in and through.”

During my most recent exploration for my new collections for Spring, I had many requests from my fans and friends to offer them the gemstone healing jewels that I usually only do for my bespoke clients exclusively and turn this offering into a regular part of The Sage Lifestyle.  My new gemstone healing collection radiates pure patterns based on the stone and all the healing , wonderment and magic I have grown to know and love from these incredible gifts from nature, Gemstones. Offered as necklaces, rings or earrings, the wearer can keep the energy of the organic stone close to them all day as a personal totem and enjoy wearing a stone that empowers them daily. I hope that this collection helps you to find your way to serenity and offers you a bit of sparkling support in your quest to find balance in your life.  Shop the new collection today!

Best Baby Safe Perfumes by Sage

For many new mothers, the first days, weeks and months of your precious new babies life are all nestled up in your arms and neck. The sweet smell of a new born baby is intoxicating to anyone who has been around them. The sweet and tenderness of a baby at the beginning stages of life is an important time to keep them as healthy as possible. What many don’t realize is the harsh chemicals that are in the perfumes that many new moms love so much. Sprayed on your neck and arms can be directly transferred to your little one and can hurt their skin and lungs as they breath it in. As a perfume designer and mom, I felt it was extremely important to create natural perfume oils  that will be a healthy solution to the hard chemicals that are in many traditional perfumes.

Inspired by my daughter, Sophie Rose Annabelle Lee, I designed the Pearl fragrance. Pearl was the natural gemstone that I chose to represent one of the most precious moments in my life – the birth of my first daughter, Sophie Rose Annabelle Lee. The Pearl has been a symbol of unblemished perfection since ancient times and continues to represent purity and innocence. Reflective of the journey of motherhood and creation of new life, I was able to experience and imagine the beauty of the scent before it’s creation, similar to the process of pregnancy. At 8 months into my pregnancy I was able to envision what Pearl symbolized to me and began the journey of creating a fragrance that would embody the sweet smell of a baby and encompass all of the purity and delight of new life!

Here are a few of the best baby safe perfumes options to wear during and after pregnancy. Try our Pearl Roll-On, Diamond Roll-On or Topaz Roll-On.
