Love your armpits!
This is not only an incredibly effective deodorant which leaves you smelling fresh and clean, but it also cares for your skin. You are actually moisturizing your armpits with the deodorizing side effect.
Warm a small amount between your fingers then massage into the skin of your armpits. It may feel a tiny bit sticky for the first couple of minutes (because of the beeswax), but this passes as it is absorbed.
Reapply as necessary. The deodorant comes with a single portion of organic red clay & sulfur rich lava rock which is to be used as you would a face mask – but for your armpits. It will cleanse and remove all residue from chemical deodorant and kill bacteria which create odor.
Copal has been used traditionally by the Maya in Guatemala for burning during sacred ceremonies and is believed to purify the air and spirit. It is a resin similar to amber with a smoky, sweet aroma. It is used medicinally locally in Guatemala in poultices for back pain and to kill fungal outbreaks. It is an astringent (therefore great in face toners), antibacterial and stimulates blood circulation. The organic Copal we use for Tierra & Lava products is harvested from trees in the Uaxactun village and Mayan site of Guatemala (just behind Tikal).
Besides being delicious as a tea or refreshing as a fragrance, lemongrass is also an astringent which makes it a great toner ingredient. It soothes and balances skin PH and helps in reducing cellulite. It has anti-depressive and relaxing qualities. It’s also a natural insect repellent.
This golden beeswax is sustainably managed by beekeepers in local mountain village near Antigua, Guatemala. It is extracted via air pressure and as a result retains all of it’s nutrients and medicinal qualities. It is a humectant and protects the skin as well as being a great ingredient in hair conditioner.
The magic bullet for lather in soap blends - liquid and solid. This is a pure virgin coconut oil from neighbouring Belize. It is incredibly moisturising and also contains Vitamin E.
This is a Guatemalan cocoa butter - pure and un-deodorised so it still has a mild deliciously chocolate aroma. It is high in antioxidants which help to kill the free radicals in the middle layer of the skin and melts at body temperatue which gives creams and foot butters an amazing texture. It is readily absorbed by the skin, and is an excellent moisturiser - even on sunburnt skin.
