Relaxing Floral Foot Bath

Grow or develop in a vigorous way, as the result of a favorable environment.

Welcome to flourish, the official blog of Willow and Sage, where skin is in from head to toe. We’re not just a blog, though. We like to think of flourish as your wellness BFF, who tells it like it is when it comes to taking care of yourself inside and out. Here’s just a taste at the sage wisdom she’ll be sharing with us.

1. Discover a literal treasure chest of must-have bath and body recipes.

From bath detoxes to luxurious soaks, anti-aging treatments and face masks, get the step-by-step scoop on how to DIY everything in your beauty cabinet and wrap it up gorgeously with packaging ideas.

2. Debunking beauty myths, one blog post at a time.

Do microbeads really benefit your skin? Should you wear sunscreen if your makeup already has SPF in it? What is “Dead Sea Salt” anyway and why is everyone so wild about it? There’s no such thing as a stupid question here. Let us debunk every beauty mystery from A to Z for you.

3. Real talk for living your best life.

We like to call this the pursuit of feeling good. Let’s get the convo started on the history of the cleanse, how to perk up your shower every season, quotes about mindfulness that matter, and the ultimate guide to keeping calm and carrying on.

4. Explore trending ingredients via eye-catching infographics.

We’re going in-depth on ingredients both trending (rosehip, coconut oil, chia seeds, and avocado, just to name a few) and relatively unknown (start studying up on sweet potatoes, AKA the unsung superheroes of skincare).

5. Q&A interviews that shine a spotlight on some of the biggest influencers in the beauty industry.

We chat with the best and brightest in the all-natural beauty community to bring you the juiciest details on what your skin needs to, well, flourish!

Our aim is to help you live your most radiant life – both inside and out.

And we hope you’ll also share your stories with us, so we can get to know you better.

Are you curious about a specific ingredient?

Do you want to know how to create the perfectly packaged bath salts that you saw on Pinterest?

Do you have a refreshing morning routine that you’d like to tell our readers about?

Join the conversation at any time by leaving comments to let us know what you would like to see and learn on flourish.

    1. Hi Jacqueline,

      Unfortunately our team doesn’t know exactly how this wooden foot bath was acquired. If you do a quick search online for “wooden foot bath” you might be able to find something similar. Scrolling through the images, it looks like there are many options available.

      I’m sorry I couldn’t be of more help!

  2. I made the Rosemary & Lemon Salt Scrub from the Summer issue 2014. It is fantastic! If you haven’t tried it, please do; you won’t be disappointed. Can you add this recipe in your upcoming issue, for those who might have missed it?

  3. Sounds wonderful! Taking care of my aging skin is a top priority for me and I have loved the recipes in Willow and Sage. This just takes everything a step further. Thank you!

  4. I’m so excited about this blog. I LOVE Willow & Sage. I’ve made and used many of the beauty product recipes.

    My daughter and I also make presents for family and friends using your recipes and tips, especially at Christmas time. I can’t wait to see all the wonderful information shared here.

    1. Hi Kym,

      We’d love to see what you and your daughter make this year! If you have a spare moment to snap a picture and share it on social media, be sure to tag us, so our audience can also gather inspiration from your creations.

  5. This sounds fabulous! Would love to get some recipes incorporating essential oils into beauty products. I’m currently working on becoming a certified aromatherapist and am soaking up as much information as I can.

    1. I am trying to sign up to get emails from you but after I put in my address it keeps coming up with “Please add a value” and will not accept my email address. Could you tell me if it is my computer or something else?
