A major aspect of being a red-head is our sensitivity – especially our fair, ultra-sensitive skin. I soon discovered I was hyper-allergic to almost all body care products. The artificial fragrances gave me headaches and sneezing. The harsh chemicals, synthetic colors and preservatives made my hair, skin and scalp dry up and break out. Even “natural” products were too strong for me.
For a while, I found relief using Burt’s Bees original line of aftershave and deodorant. Then they went commercial and discontinued both products. I had no choice but to make my own. After a year of experimenting, I had a perfect classic bay rum aftershave and sage deodorant that were better than the original Burt’s.
My wife and I now run the online shop Freyja’s Magic, where we offer a full line of men and women’s products made especially for red-heads! Freyja’s Magic was created to provide pure, potent body care products for people like ourselves who are sensitive to their environment. Each product is 100% natural, completely handmade and truly unique, like red-heads. We still do everything the old fashioned way, by hand in small batches. Designing, mixing, melting, pouring and labeling are all done by us. No preservatives, artificial colors or fragrances are ever used. We do not use natural fragrance oils, either, which can contain carcinogens and toxins. Only 100% pure, therapeutic grade essential oils scent our products, adding medicinal and aromatherapy benefits.
Check us out, let us know what you think, and if there is something you would like to see added to our line. We are happy to accept custom orders. If you’ve been looking for something specific, tell us and we will do our best to make it for you.
Thank you for supporting out family business, and the cause of red-heads everywhere!
