Risa started as an apothecary intern, trading 3 hours of her time each week for the chance to learn more about what goes on behind the scenes at the apothecary.
As our need for more people in the store grew, Risa quickly trasitioned from intern to store employee.
She quickly found a love and pasison for working with plants and people.
When I first switched to all natural deodorant I had such a hard time finding something that lasted all day and that actually worked. I never did find anything that I felt great using, worked and still made me feel good about myself and didn’t make me feel self-conscious about body odor (that seemed to get worse when I used store bought deodorant) until I started using our all-natural deodorant when I started at the apothecary.
It has simple ingredients and comes in four different scents, Lavender & Sage (the original scent), Lavender, Forest, and Unscented. My favorite is the lavender & sage scent. The lavender is antimicrobial and provides the perfect amount of that “girly” smell that always drew me to other not all-natural deodorant. Sage is also antimicrobial and together with the lavender is a powerhouse for fighting body odor.
I was always worried about being too sweaty and having stains on my shirt but have found that the baking soda works wonders for keeping me dry!!
Our deodorant is better than anything I have ever used! Even when I go on hikes I can count on our deodorant and no longer have to worry if I smell. I will never use another deodorant again!
