After switching to a new deodorant, I experienced a rash on my underarms, which is something I've never dealt with before. I treated it naturally but was a bit afraid to go back to any old deodorant so I decided to give this one a try and I LOVE it! I live in Arizona and usually have to use 2+ products to keep nice smelling in our hot weather but this works like a charm and has not caused my underarms to break out again - I will definitely continue to purchase this product!

About

Offering a connection of Healing Earth Wisdom with New Age Lifestyles

My life's work began with adult onset acne. Talk about horrible! It’s nothing like coming into your own, and feeling like you want to hide.

I began a search for anything that could heal me. The acne turned into marks and deep, open pores. Then, the severe dry, but oily complexion that became even more agitated with make-up and alcohol based remedies. As I aged, it only worsened and began making me look OLD...to add insult to injury- boils on my body, rashes and you name it... I got it! It seemed the more I fought, the worse it became. The more depressed I was. The lower my self-esteem and worth.

I FINALLY realized I was not going to get any help from the medical community. Dermatologists and Acupuncture had failed me. What was I going to do???? I did some research and placed my first order for African Black Soap and Raw Shea Butter. The course of my journey shifted...

My body immediately responded to the natural healing powers of these items. I was energized! From that moment on I read all I could about natural fruit and nut butters, the people who pick and process them, the life of these trees and how they affect the lives of all who encounter them. I began a love affair then that remains red hot to this day!

I am completely God, Ancestor, Spirit and self-taught. I have taken a few classes and read a couple books, but prefer to be led by my own creativity and ideas without being limited by the "box". This process has led to many "wasted" batches, countless moments of frustration... even a couple itchy spots LOL! But, I have gained sooooo much in personal relationship with these ingredients that made my growth that much more PERSONAL, VALUABLE and PRECIOUS. After 5 years of evolving, I can now say...I'm pretty darn proud of myself :) And I know my Creator and Grandmother in heaven are too!

All the formulas you find here are completely unique!
No textbook pre-measured recipes
No commercial pre-made bases
No corners cut

My main goal is to offer a part of me, which is ultimately a part of you. To connect us all as humans... To the villager that picks the fruit for nectar, and now doesn't have to cut the tree. The mother who collects the butter in a gourd while carrying her baby on her back, and now offer hope to a coming generation. The UPS driver who smiles while lugging 50lb boxes to my door. The USPS worker who asks about my son, and takes a moment to ask all in line to congratulate him on his report card. The farmer's market client who hugs me for offering an alternative to a life of troublesome skin.

I love this life, and hope you can feel it. I take pride in knowing I am simply taking my place amongst all the natural healers, medicine women, and conjurers that are in my blood. I am thankful to have found myself, and YOU!
