Beautiful Botanicals Challenge

One of my favorite things about summer is the garden. I find great delight in sitting in the garden, watching the butterflies, birds and bees. I also find great humor in watching the neighbor’s fat, orange cat slink through the plants only to be startled. Many bees and other insects have sent him streaking back to the safety of his yard. As I sat in the garden this weekend, I thought of all of the body care products that have been inspired and influence by nature. I thought today I would release a challenge. I want you to create a product based on botanicals. Get inspiration from gardens or local parks.

All participants must submit a photo of their product, a photo of their inspiration and a description about it, include what it is scented with. We will accept submissions of products inspired by botanicals, gardens and parks. All submissions will be displayed on our blog. Good luck!

Now here is the really exciting news. We will accept submissions in three categories. Soaps, Bath Goodies and Cosmetics. The Soaps category can include cold process soaps, hot process soaps and melt & pour. Bath Goodies includes bath salts, bath bombs, bath oils and even bubble bars. The Cosmetics category will include lotions, creams, lip balms, massage oils, etc. Please note that all submission are due by July 18th. To make a submission, email your description and photos to taylor.blog@thesage.com. I have gift certificates for winners!

Happy creating! I can’t wait to see all the submissions!
