Project Description

Body by Ruah 

Ruah + Body = Life

Body by Ruah is a handcrafted body care product line gives access to safer body products to all men and women. Ruah means breathe, or spirit; and when you add it with the body, you have life.  We believe you must take care of both the material and spiritual parts of your body to live a holistic lifestyle.  We started with a line of handcrafted deodorants and we have been overwhelmed by amazing feedback we have received.  We want to expand Body by Ruah to offer handcrafted body butter, toothpaste, lip butter, face washes, hair products and more.  We are raising money to fund this expansion and are inviting our loyal fans to be a part of our growth. We have relied on your feedback in the past and look forward to hearing it as we expand our product line.

Our Her-story

Our fierce founder, Stephanie, was diagnosed with a benign tumor in her uterus over a year ago.  She suffered for month's through countless ER visits, pain, doctor's appointments and racked up a very high hospital bill.  She had had enough.

She did not give in to the pain.

She allowed it to inform her decisions.  She began researching about her disease.  She poured over countless books and learned about the imbalance of hormones and how too much estrogen can impact your life.

She did not want to go to the doctor again.  She was done with the ER.  Like any great founder, she came up with her own solution to her own problem.

She began removing harmful things from her diet and rid her beauty cabinet of any unsafe products. During her removal of certain beauty products, she began making her own deodorant.  She would share it with friends and they could not get enough, so she turned it into a business.

Body by Ruah launched with our original line of handcrafted deodorants: Vegan deodorant, Peppermint Pitts, Peach, Black Vanilla and Tea Tree.

We are a mission-driven company

Our goal at Body by Ruah is to teach people in our local Nashville community how to live a healthier lifestyle at affordable prices.

At the end of every month, Body by Ruah donates unsold products to local in-need communities because we believe everyone deserves to have access to healthy products for their bodies.
