Welcome back to our founder spotlight series! We're meeting with the founders of your favorite clean beauty brands to learn about the inspiration behind their brand, their favorite products, the clean beauty industry, and their advice for budding beauty entrepreneurs. This week we chatted with Son-ja Haile, the founder of Satya + Sage.
What was the inspiration behind creating Satya + Sage?
Satya + Sage is part of my self-care journey, and I decided to share it with the world. Through important stages of my life, I realized it was when I was consistent in taking moments of stillness, was when I felt most connected to myself and felt clear in the path I was on. Candles and aromas have always played a significant role in those moments. Each Satya + Sage candle or product is made to bring inspiration to whatever brings someone back to themselves and their desires.
What advice would you give to aspiring entrepreneurs in the beauty + wellness space?
Be clear in your vision, know your margins, and make whatever self-care is to you a non-negotiable.
If you could only pick one, what is your favorite product that you’ve created?
Lately, I've been burning the King and Meditation Candle the most. They both give me different feelings of calmness and grounding, and they both smell so good!
What is your favorite way to practice self care?
My favorite self-care is sacred baths. I clear the space, light a candle and journal, or read a book. It's a complete reset and focus session for me, and I can see a more straightforward path to my goals.
