Our Pit Paste is a unique blend that, unlike other "natural pastes" out there, includes probiotics (good bacteria eating the bad!) and not as much baking soda (which causes fire pits- burning peeling pits in sensitive people). We have crafted three scents for you to choose from.
It may seem weird at first, but we find our pit paste to be better than any of the solid deodorants that we have tried. To get a natural solid to stay solid regardless of temperature, you have to add unnecessary ingredients (like waxes). This takes away from the formula's effectiveness.
Extra bonus: When you are applying deodorant with your fingers, you can see if your lymph are swollen or congested. Lily, staff herbalist, had this happen to her and she was able to treat the congestion and have the swelling go back to normal in a few days- thanks, Pit Paste!
Our Pit Paste comes in 1 oz. glass jars with metal lids. You only need a pea sized amount per pit to work, so this will last you a long time- at least a month!
If your body care products are packaged in plastic, you are adding to the toxic exposures in your life. Choose Haven's body care line- as we package in glass, cardboard, and metal. No plastic is better for the environment and better for you!

We use real pronounceable ingredients that are ethically sourced and high quality for your product.
We either grow or work with local growers to source for our formulas. This supports the local economy, gives us the most potent plants, & reduces
reliance upon fossil fuels.
We make products from herbs that will grow here over herbs from the Amazon, China, or Africa. Oftentimes, those trendy herbs are taken in an unsustainable way & local people do not have access to their native medicines any longer. Bioregional herbalism is where it's at!
How to Use
How to Use
Specifics for all products are in our FAQ (click the question mark in the lower right, then choose "formulation questions").
Herbal remedies, supplements, and tonics are fundamentally different
from pharmaceuticals (and we like it that way). They are designed to
restore your body and its systems to homeostasis gently- working with
We post basic dosage guidelines, but keep in mind if you have more body mass or a faster metabolism than the average bear, you may need to take a larger dose than indicated. If there are hard-and-fast limitations on how often you can take the product, it will
be listed on the package. Most can be used up to six times daily
without problems (but we doubt that you would need to do that).
Remember, there are no "magic bullets" in life, and any product (herbal, pharmaceutical, or otherwise) claiming 100% success without knowing you, your constitution, and your lifestyle is lying and trying to get into
your wallet. Often, herbalists (and MDs) need to try several products
before we find the one that works for your unique biochemistry.
Feel free to email us if the product didn't quite do the job, we can
recommend another that could do the trick. We are blessed with many
plants that have the same action in the body- and often it's just a
matter of finding the right one for you.
