A few years ago, I learned of the possible health complications and reality of applying chemicals and aluminum, (that are in most major brand deodorants), to my underarms-the most absorbent and sensitive areas of my body. Our underarms are an exit and an entry and I was not giving it good stuff to work with or to help me with what I was using it for.
Dis-ease, like breast cancer, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, could be traced back to exposure to these metals and heavy chemicals that we have been literally, slathering ALL OVER our underarms, since we were teenagers! Imagine that area and it’s close proximity to our breast tissue, lymph nodes and lymph system! I was startled.
My underarms were an issue that I silently struggled with. Nothing was working. I wanted a product that was healthy for my poor underarms and didn’t make me break out or stink. I also wanted to be sure I wasn’t adding unnecessary toxins and heavy metals to my skin. We need to sweat. I had blocked my underarms from sweating for so long, no wonder I had eruptions and sore armpits! I needed help and wanted to be confident in my underarms and overall health.
I was also determined to find, (or make at this point), a product, just using natural and plant-based ingredients, and it needed to work.
After spending a fortune on all of the top “aluminum-free and all-natural” brands, and not finding one of them that worked-they either left my skin in eruptions and irritation or not-too-fresh, so I finally decided to attempt to make my own.
Determined, I was, so I got to the stove and started blending things that made sense-coconut oil, clays, beeswax. shea butter and arrowroot. I then added some great essential oils that I loved and worked for these formulas.
After MUCH deliberation, and MANY attempts later, I finally found a formula that worked! I was making so much of it for friends and family, that I eventually had to label it and get containers for them.
Just days later, my underarms were in fact, looking better and I was feeling better about the whole thing. Inevitably, I knew I was taking better care of myself, by way of my skin care products. Which then led to thinking with my ENTIRE body and contemplating the other products I was using- the basics that I use everyday, the must-haves, the essentials…and made a better version of them. That was how the Luna Bath & Body Oils, the Body Butter, Lip Bombs and Face Serums came to be.
