The Mastermind behind Arrow•Ma

Meet supermom/business owner Lindsay Walters of Arrow•Ma, a company which specializes in bath, body and candle supplies in North Carolina. We had the immense pleasure of meeting Lindsay and asked her a few questions about the mastermind behind the company and why she chooses to incorporate shea butter as a key ingredient to her products. (P.S she uses sanoun shea butter!)

  1. Tell us about a little about yourself.

I am a working Mom of 2 growing boys. I’m originally from NY but have moved several times, most recently from VA to the Raleigh area for my husband’s and my job.

 

  1. How did Arrow•Ma come to life?

My business has evolved to a place that gives me joy! I started off as a presenter for makeup/skincare company that is known for having great mascara. I started to become interested in skincare and began making rose water for myself and selling to local customers. A few months later, one of my customers asked me if I made goat’s milk soap, so I learned to make soap and that went really well. Another customer reached out and asked if I would consider making themed boxes for sale, and that bloomed locally. When I relocated, I had various requests come through to sell items, so I decided to open an Etsy shop most recently. The name of my company is Arrow•Ma and is a combination of two things that I love: arrows, and being a Mom. When merged together it sounds like aroma, a sweet smell.

 

  1. Why unrefined shea butter?

I use unrefined shea butter because it has more vitamins and fatty acids needed for elasticity in skin. I use Shea butter in my lotions, on my lips, and in my hair!

A parting gift from the creator

One of my favorite recipes: Rosemary shaving cream

  • 1/3 cup shea butter
  • 1/3 cup virgin coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup sweet almond oil
  • 10 drops rosemary essential oil (lavender is another great option)
  • 3-5 drops peppermint essential oil

 Directions: In a small saucepan over low heat, combine the shea butter and coconut oil, stirring until just melted. Remove from the heat and transfer to a heat-safe bowl. Add in the jojoba oil and the essential oils. Stir to mix.

Chill in refrigerator about 30 minutes. Remove from fridge and whip using a hand beater until whipped frosting consistency. Put into a container and keep in a cool dry place.
