Susan Shashok is like many Vermonters who were raised with a love of the environment and knowledge that handcrafted was best and as a child visited her grandmother and learned an immense amount about medicinal plants and home arts. “My grandmother Caroline was my inspiration,” explained Susan Shashok. “I remember her incredible knowledge of medicinal plants and her beauty regime that included products all from nature.”

I got a stellar performance out of this deodorant, which I ordered last week. I wanted to give it a real run for its money before I reviewed it. I attended the Annual Memorial Day Bolder Boulder 10K Race, as a spectator, in 85 degrees and blistering sun. It was a long walk to the stadium where I sat for two hours enjoying the race. The humid bathroom at the stadium was probably 100 degrees, and I was dripping sweat as I helped my toddler granddaughter use the facilities. Yes, I was drenched. No, I didn't stink of BO. I woke up this morning with too much to do before showering, including taking a 1.5-mile walk outside in the sun. The deodorant from yesterday morning was still going strong. Sorry for the graphic account of the story. I wanted to report that Caroline's Dream Deodorant withstood a real-life challenge. It smells clean, light and fresh. Great job, Susan! Finally, something I can rely on that's all-natural and body-friendly! - Pamela
Let me tell you how much I love this product. I got my husband to set up his video equipment so I could tell the world something important. Was it to let people know about my own small business? No! We made the video so I could let everyone know that this scrub is a fantastic way to take care of your skin. Yay for gentle exfoliation! Yay for all natural ingredients! Yay for Caroline's Dream! - Joanna
