I am SO happy with this deodorant! I have been making my own for about a month but it was making me break out due to the baking soda. I apprehensively decided to just try to buy one instead of making another one myself and I am SO HAPPY!! My skin is so much clearer already and it smells amazing. Thank you so much!

A peek behind the scenes and into our workshop, which looks more like an old school pharmacy if you ask me. These are batch size versions of our botanical perfumes in the curing process.

A little bit about who we are and how we got here:

Welcome to the Bodhi Basics.

Established in January 2011, Bodhi Basics has now become a local one-stop deodorant & soap shop in St. Petersburg, Florida. How did it all begin? After years of trial and error with store bought products causing terrible skin problems I, Kim Vorperian, decided to start tinkering with making my own soap. While living in a kind friend's living room I turned the kitchen into a make-shift laboratory on the weekends while working as metalsmith during the week. There was a lot of trial and error in the beginning, but I knew even then that I only wanted the highest quality, organic, botanical ingredients in my stuff. No junk, no artificial crap, no synthetic fragrance. I wanted everything to be directly traceable to something that grows or comes out of the earth in it's pure form.

The name Bodhi Basics has multiple meanings for me personally. Bodhi is the name of my best friend (you can meet him if you ever stop by the shop. He is our official greeter). It is also the sanskrit term for knowledge and awakening. I think of the meaning of Bodhi whenever I am creating a new product or fine-tuning our branding. It's simple, it's true, it is a striving to get our skincare back to the basics.

I kept up with job juggling for a few years and moved around quite a bit, carrying my blossoming soap business along with me wherever I went. We have been slowly growing since our beginning days in 2011 and we plan to keep it up. All of the products are still (and will always be) made by hand. While this doesn't sound like a big deal, it is. The time that it takes to make a single tube of our lip lube is comparable to a machine making hundreds. While it may be the slow way, it is also ensures that each product is made with love and we can keep a close eye on quality. It's worth it to us and we believe you can see and feel it in our products.

All of our products are tried and tested multiple times before they hit the shelves (or the internet). They do have a shorter shelf life due to the lack of synthetic preservatives, but we do make sure that they will last for a long time no matter what climate they are in. All of our products always have the ingredients labeled accurately and visible. We are about telling the truth and telling the story of each product.

If you haven't tried botanically based, organic, handcrafted body products now is the time. Your skin will thank you.

Let us know if you have any questions. We are always happy to answer them.

Much love,

Kim & Bodhi

Welcome to Bodhi Basics in our little soapy corner of the world.

Simplicity comes in many shapes and forms. We think soap should be one of them. Each of our bars are made, cut and labeled by hand, and will always be. Bodhi Basics is a one woman (Kim), one pup (Bodhi) soap shop and we are committed to sticking to the basics.

Our vision is to provide soap for every age, skin type & species with the knowledge, power, and beauty provided by nature.

There are no additives, synthetics, parabens, dyes, fragrance oils, etc. in these soaps. I have a very simple rule that I abide by with every soap recipe. If I will not eat it, I will not put it in my soap. This means that all of the ingredients are top notch and organic when possible.

All of our soap scents are the product of pure essential oils, herbs, and nothing else. Our soaps have such a high percentage of essential oils we like to think of them as being part of our aromatherapy routine. Just lather, breathe, and repeat.

Bodhi is a rescue pup and out of solidarity we donate a part of our profits to our local Sarasota animal shelter. We also donate bars to our four legged friends around the holidays when they need a little extra love.

Feel good inside and out soaping up with us.
