Curiosity and creation
Sage & Sea Apothecary proprietor Kendalyn Banks has had an affinity for personal care products for as long as she can remember. Growing up in a small town in southern Massachusetts, downtime was often spent walking across the street to the local drugstore and perusing the aisles of the paralyzingly large selection of shampoos, soaps, candles, and the like. Kendalyn left her hometown in 2005 to pursue a degree in marine biology at the University of Rhode Island in 2005. During that time, everyday stressors began to manifest in her body as stomach issues and she eagerly sought relief. She began educating herself on intuitive eating and subsequently became aware that what you apply onto your body is equally as important as how you nourish it from the inside. While on the road to recovery Kendalyn decided she wanted to share what she learned to help others struggling with the same or similar issues she was facing, and so began the early days of Sage & Sea Apothecary. In 2016 Kendalyn began the crazy amazing journey into motherhood that ignited her passion for natural skincare for her whole family as well as continuing to explore the realm of eco-friendly, non-toxic home products.
Intuition meets science
Kendalyn seeks to provide products made from wholesome and holistic 100% natural ingredients, as well as organic and local whenever possible, that are both safe and effective. She pairs her love for research with her love for cooking while whipping up products in her kitchen, all the while allowing her intuition to guide her. Sage & Sea Apothecary strives to handcraft and deliver the best quality products that leave you feeling like the truly magnificent Divine being you are. Mother Nature knows best, after all!
