In our @gratefuldead organic deodorant, Sunshine, we blended together blood orange, bergamot, lemon, grapefruit and lime essential oils to create a scent that will leave you daydreaming of feelin’ that sunshine, going where the wind goes. Or, as @nprgreene from @morningedition @npr put it, now your armpits can glow with the gold of sunshine.☀️ 😎Shop our OFFICIAL #GratefulDead line by following the link in our bio. 📷: @classicbohemian
“I have been a Dead Head since 1999,” North Coast Organics CEO Nathan Morin said, “The music and spirit of the Grateful Dead have influenced my company’s core principles of service, veganism, and organic agriculture. The Grateful Dead have inspired us to stay true to our main mission of social responsibility. We took care in creating special oil blends that reference the Grateful Dead’s music.
The Grateful Dead’s legacy manager and archivist, David Lemieux said the deodorants are in line with the Dead Heads’ ethos of “love of the world around us.” “North Coast Organics lives and functions as we do, with an awareness that the future’s here, we are it, and we need to take care of the planet and ourselves,” he said.
