TIPS - Products:

To help stretch out the use of our moist BAR SOAP, lather it onto your skin then use a washcloth rather than applying the soap directly to a washcloth.
 
Keep the soap out of the main stream of the shower. The bar will last and last, and will retain its moisturizing and lathering qualities as well as its fragrance.

To use our SUGAR SCRUBS, just moisten your hands and dip out some of the Scrubs from the jar. Rub it on elbows, arms, feet, legs ...anywhere where you find rough skin. Rinse with running water or washcloth.
 
The botanical oils and sugar combination in our Scrubs will moisten while it exfoliates. You can control the amount of moistening oils you want left on on your skin by rinsing more or with less water.

Customers also find the Sugar Scrubs effective on face (just rub a little more gently).


DID YOU KNOW...
The handmade Bolga Baskets that we use for our Gift Baskets can be reused for many things. If they happen to become misshaped, you can mist or moisten the basket and flex it by hand into the desired shape.

Soaking the basket in a tub of water for approximately thirty seconds works well if the basket has been flattened for travel.

This can be done as many times as necessary without damaging the basket.

We carry larger baskets at events  and also bring many other unique items. Also, we often introduce new fragrance varieties of our body care products at shows.

We hope to see you at an upcoming event..

"My Mom and I met you two at the Seaside Games in Ventura.... Your soaps are AMAZING. I am so happy to have found you and your quality products.
   "I am the one who went nuts for Anise. That sweet bar of soap has the most wonderful fragrance...it has filled my entire bedroom! THANK YOU"
----------------------
"I bought your soap sampler at the Renaissance Faire in San Luis Obispo. I have used the whole sampler and just wanted to say how great they all were.
   "I have very sensitive skin, and fragrance (usually) gives me rashes or break-outs, but your products are so gentle they don't bother me at all. They smell great and don't leave a residue on your skin. You feel so clean and pretty after using them. I will definitely be giving out your products for gifts.
   "Thanks and hope to see you at the fair next year!"
----------------------
"If you love buying handmade natural products, look no further, these are for you!
   "My aunt and uncle’s line, called Sages Body Care, is FANTASTIC!
 "The richness of the lathering body care products (soaps, bath salts, lotions, and botanical sugar scrubs) leave your skin with a refreshed and smooth feeling
. Their line also has a variety of different fragrances.
  From my personal experience, I had tried so many prescription creams and countless visits to the dermatologist. Then my aunt recommended her unscented Oatmeal soap bar. I gave it a try and, BAM! It has really helped my skin! I started seeing the psoriasis disappear within a week.
  "
I am so happy, I just can’t stop talking about it!
 -----------------------
"I wanted to thank you for getting my husband's attention and getting him interested. He loved your cucumber melon lotion!  I bought the Lavender (for myself) ..."
 -----------------------
"I met you two at the Calaveras Jousting Championships and bought 4 soaps, a lotion and a foot soak (scrub). THEY ARE ALL AMAZING. I love the scents that I picked out and the foot soak feels so good after my long runs...
------------------------
"My husband and I bought a few different bath soaps from you in October at the Fiddletown Jamboree.
  "We live in a rural part of California ... and have bought "genuine" vs glycerin homemade soap from various local people throughout our county - all good soaps. But, my oh my! Your bath soap is absolutely the best we've ever bought. Even with our hard well water, the soap lathers up beautifully and softens the skin without that softening effect washing off.
  "So, I wanted to email you and thank you personally for making what I consider to be an A+ quality of homemade soap - one that holds true to all of it's commitments: it lathers well, keeps it's wonderful smell and lasts a long time."
 -----------------------
"My sis and I attended the event in Angels Camp... and we both purchased the amber lotion. WE LOVE IT. Thank you so much"
 -----------------------
 "Hello. It's David on his Soap Box... literally.  It's that time of year again when I roll out my barrel and stand up to support my favorite causes....
  "You ready? Its Soap! You can laugh all you want and, yes, it is really me saying this...but I have stopped buying soap from anyone else and have used Sages soap for years. Its all natural and smells great! I get the Rose Patchouli myself. And their Body Lotions are incredible!
  "You can find them at many renfaires and on their web site store.
  "In these days of mass consumerism it’s rare to find a two person Mom and Pop shop run by great folks, like Ernie and Sheila, who actually care!  Check them out and if you buy tell them David sent you. (and, NO, I don’t get anything for doing this. I just really like them)"
