 Pregnant with my first child, 2009

Pregnant with my first child, 2009

Vanessa's story begins when she learned she was pregnant with her first child..."I wanted to have as healthy a pregnancy as possible, and the first thing to go was my antiperspirant deodorant. Aluminum, a heavy metal, was not something I wanted on my skin (a very absorbent organ) or ultimately reaching my developing baby. So off I went to my nearby health food store. I must have tried 8 different brands and nothing worked! I'd smell fresh for the first 30 minutes, but then it would wear off quickly. I ordered more products online, but those weren't effective at stopping my stink either.

Fast forward to my second pregnancy. Desperate for an underarm solution, I created a recipe that used very natural ingredients. I made it and it worked!! I smelled wonderful all day long! I knew I had something great so I worked to perfect the recipe, making sure to use organic ingredients whenever possible. I researched the best coconut oil, baking soda, and essential oils to make sure I was putting something safe and pure onto my skin--and now yours too!!"












Carrie's story is one that has matured over the years..."I'm a mother and a wife of a tri-athlete trying to provide a healthy, natural and organic life for my three children and husband.  I've always been drawn to more natural, or organic, products, but since I became a mother, it's become much more of a priority for me. I've done a lot of research on proper nutrition, natural beauty and whole body wellness. I learned that if my 94 year-old grandmother couldn't pronounce the ingredients, it wasn't really something I wanted in my home.

Over the years, I searched for a natural deodorant that passed the test, but to no avail. My husband would laugh at the number of deodorant containers I had pilling up under the bathroom counter, having been used once or twice, then tossed into the pile because they failed to make me stink-free for any good length of time. Then, I met Vanessa...and we're proud to bring you Hygieia, LLC, - natural products that actually work, including the Best Deodorant Ever, Hygieia Essentials and Hygieia Baby."
