🌿 OUR STORY 🌿

I’ve always felt at home in nature; there’s no shortage of inspiration and my intuition is blooms when there aren't city sidewalks under my feet.

Ever since I can remember, finding a deep sense of connection, hope, and grounding happened when I was surrounded by tall pine trees and gentle breezes. So, it was no surprise that any time I felt lost, adrift, or nursing a heavy heart, I’d find my way back to nature. One of those times, in particular, was when I was feeling weary over the state of my highly acne prone skin.

After years of wins, losses, and the “two steps forward, one step back” merry-go-round that would often leave me back in the exact same spot with my skin (as are the nature of merry-go- rounds), I retreated to the nearest nature trail. As my dog trotted along beside me, I was trying to find a lifeline to anchor my self-esteem and lead me back to shore.

As I took in my surroundings - the evergreens were moving so slightly in the wind, wildflowers were thriving along the side of the cedar-covered trail, birds sang sweetly - I pondered how communicative Mother Nature is with us. There are always signs of things to come - first bloom in the spring, leaves changing colour in the fall, the first frost.

All of these signs made me consider whether my skin communicated as nature did; informing me of something other than the results of a genetic lottery. Perhaps my skin was trying to convey to me what was working and what wasn’t. Maybe, just maybe, it was telling me that it needed more support than I was giving it - or more wildly, that it required fewer interventions from me and instead was looking for more space to heal.

This one simple thought sent me down the holistic healing rabbit hole of discovering just how much my skin was aching for a pared down approach. A balanced, holistic approach that didn’t rely on the next quick fix or the next trendy face wash.

This new approach also healed my relationship with my skin. I no longer saw it was something to fight with, control, or attempt to bend to what I thought it needed to look like. Instead, I got to a place of appreciating my skin for being so communicative about what was and currently is affecting it - both internally and externally; physically and emotionally. I became grateful for all the core functions the largest organ in my body performed on a daily basis, my skin (and often without complaint).

During the discovery phase of this new found holistic approach, I developed my first skincare products. The products were designed to communicate to my skin that I was now on board - that I now “got it” - and was going to support it naturally, gently, and without judgement.

It’s amazing how much pressure is released when pivoting to an approach that seeks to support rather than force. In fact, getting to know my skin as part of my whole body (not just one piece) become a lesson in mindfulness, self-discovery, and self-compassion.

As these lessons sunk in and took root, I developed a healthy relationship with my skin. It wasn’t long before my skin responded in kind by showing signs of being deeply nourished, cared for, and calm.

Interestingly, it doesn’t take long for others to take notice of healthy relationships, and the healthy relationship I fostered with my skin was no exception. I started getting requests for the very same products I was nourishing my own skin with - and I happily obliged!

It was (and is) exciting to share a peaceful approach to skincare that encourages self- compassion, a connection to nature (through natural ingredients and Mother Nature’s gentle guidance), and a wholehearted invitation to trust your body.

When the requests to handcraft my delicate formulas expanded past the time I had available in my schedule, I redirected my career path and Grounded Sage Skincare (previously known as “batty’s bath”) was born.

Since that time I’ve continued to handcraft skin supporting, peace of mind skincare products from nature’s abundant array of comforting, gentle ingredients. I also continue to encourage others to foster a compassionate relationship with their skin (and their body).

🌿 Our ingredients
… Earthy and wholesome, we focus on ingredients that are non-toxic, naturally-derived, and deeply nourishing.

🌿 Our products
… Our certified cruelty-free products are lovingly handcrafted in small batches in Southwestern Ontario.

🌿 Our packaging
… Is carefully selected to keep our products safe, stable, and effective, while not losing sight of our impact on Mother Nature. See “Our Impact” for information on our sustainable packaging.

🌿 Our approach
… Personalized, holistic, and mindful - You won't find a “one size fits all” approach here. Instead, we tune into what our skin is trying to communicate and develop a personalized plan from there. By getting to know our skin better, we learn to care for our skin in a way that’s simple, intuitive, and effective.


🌿 Our Values 🌿

We value quality connections
...so we've created an open-minded, judgement free community for Grounded Sage customers to share stories and experiences.

We value independence and intuition
...Grounded Sage started from a journey of self-trust, so we foster that in our community and approach to encourage others to trust themselves and their body

We value comfort over chaos
… Real comfort doesn’t just stop with physical comforts (though we’re totally into those too! Bliss is curling up a good book and a furry friend, am I right?!), we also want our minds to have a cozy place to land - a place free from body (skin) shaming and perfectionist beauty standards - which is why we take a gentle, mindful approach to skincare.

We value compassion for ourselves and others
… One of the ways we foster this value is by committing to give back to local animal charities, rescues, and sanctuaries. Find out more about our charitable work here.

We value a connection to nature
… Nature has so much to teach us if we’re willing to listen. It also has a bounty of nourishing ingredients that our skin understands. For these reasons and more, communing with nature reminds us of our roots and opens our hearts up to the ways we’re all connected.


🌿 Our Impact 🌿

At Grounded Sage we hold fast to a commitment to always improve and “do better” by working towards greater sustainability, a lighter foot print, and a kinder world.

Initiatives for greater sustainability and a lighter foot print:

▪️ Packaging our skincare products in reusable and recyclable glass jars
▪️ Packaging our balm products, such as our Lip Balm+, in bio-degradable, compostable, cardboard tubes
▪️ Using eco-friendly shipping materials such as: Biodegradable starch-based packing peanuts, recyclable corrugated cardboard cushioning, recyclable Kraft paper sheets made with 100% recycled content, recyclable mailers padded with recycled fibres and post-consumer content
▪️ Using sustainably sourced, eco-friendly ingredients, and opting for organic certified, locally sourced ingredients whenever possible.
▪️ Using only cold-pressed and steam-distilled oils when sourcing our plant-based carrier and essential oils


Initiatives for working towards a kinder world:

▪️ Empowering those who have felt ashamed or insecure about their skin
▪️ Breaking down the notion that our outward appearance defines our worth in the world
▪️ Fostering the belief that we can each choose to use skincare for the care of our skin - and nothing more (not for keeping up with trends, not for striving to satisfy beauty ideals, not for validating stereotypes, etc)
▪️ Formulating with clean, kind, cruelty-free ingredients
▪️ Actively supporting organizations that fight against animal cruelty
▪️ Being a monthly sponsor of several local farm sanctuaries and animal rescue organizations
