Mayan Black Salt & Ylang Ylang Deodorant


Mayan Black Salt & Ylang Ylang Deodorant is an exotic floral scented deodorant. It draws out impurities and helps restore balance to your skin. Includes an “Armpit Detox” that preps skin to maximize the deodorants benefits. Dermatologist tested and approved.


The Mayan Black salt is extracted by families in the Guatemalan Highlands using over 100 year-old traditions. The painstaking process takes weeks to complete, and the knowledge of the sacred practice is waning. Salt has effective anti-bacterial properties and draws out impurities from your skin. This is especially important in your armpit, where the skin can be very sensitive. Ylang Ylang essential oil adds an exotic floral scent and works to balance the sebum in your skin.


Cocoa butter and coconut oil, which are also locally and sustainably sourced, both act to protect and moisturize skin. Believe it or not, our armpits are home to 20 lymph-nodes. We aren’t here to give you a biology lesson but our lymph-nodes are a vitally important part of our immune system and serve to filter out toxins from our tissues. Our armpits deserve to be cared for in a way that reflects their fundamentally important role as a part of our body. The natural ingredients in the Mayan Black Salt & Ylang Ylang Deodorant help to nourish and protect our armpit’s and show them the love they deserve.

Founders note:

“We live in a humid, tropical climate so we understand the importance of a good deodorant. That is why we developed ours using key ingredients that have anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties that get to the root cause of armpit odor, bacteria, without the cost of any harmful synthetic ingredients or chemicals that can break down your armpit skin’s natural barrier and microbiome.” – Lucy Ashman

The Brand

Belize-raised founder and botanical alchemist Lucy Ashman is inspired by her passion for a healthy environment as well as the natural beauty and extraordinary biodiversity of Central America. Ten years ago, she started making soap, shampoo and lotion for luxury boutique hotels. Lucy’s reputation for making beautiful, efficacious natural products quickly grew and spas began asking her to make scrubs and facial creams. Lucy’s career in tourism specializing in out-of-the-ordinary experiences allowed her to develop relationships with many Guatemalan locals, who would teach her about their sacred traditional uses of local plants and minerals. Combining her certified nutrition education and peer-reviewed scientific studies with traditional mayan healing practices, she developed skincare formulas using only the purest form of ingredients (aka just whole plants and minerals). Tierra & Lava now offers over 70 natural products with no fillers and only natural preservatives.
