About Dominica Sweet
DOM’S Deodorant was born from a passion for health. Growing up in beautiful Grand Forks, BC, I was instilled with a sense of community, integrity, honesty, and a love of nature which I carried with me as life led me from the mountains to the ocean. In 1998, my husband and I found ourselves setting up the next stage of our life on Salt Spring Island. With a family in our future, I was happy to find a refuge from the stressful healthcare job I had left behind in the city, somewhere I could connect with my natural surroundings.
The next big shift in my life came in the form of an unconventional gift - Hodgkins Lymphoma. Instead of a set back, I took this challenge as a chance to make healthier choices for myself and my family. Letting go of things that no longer served me, I became more aware of what I was putting in and on my body. Your skin is your biggest organ, and is susceptible to the absorption of what you you apply to it. I switched my self-care items to brands that only used simple, natural ingredients. When it came to deodorant, none of the existing natural products seemed to work. So I did something about it.
I started by blending together natural ingredients that my skin could understand, that worked to inhibit odour causing bacteria while still being kind to my body. In 2013 after rave reviews from test subjects in the form of friends and family, DOM’S Deodorant became a reality and has grown steadily ever since.
We are all striving for Love, Joy and Vitality in this lifetime. The path to lifelong health and happiness begins by making conscious choices about what we feed our minds, our bodies and our skin. I invite you to take this journey with me.
