In what may seem like a head-scratcher, the Grateful Dead have announced the release of a handmade, small-batch line of vegan deodorant.
We haven’t sampled the offering, so we can only imagine what the offering resembles.
According to news reports, it comes in a variety of scents, including Skull & Roses (lavender, rose), Sunshine (blood orange, bergamot), Workingman’s (cedarwood, juniper), Timber (Douglas fir, sage) and Unscented.
All are handmade in small batches, using 100% natural, vegan, edible ingredients, according to a news release.
“I have been a Dead Head since 1999,” North Coast Organics CEO Nathan Morin said in a statement. “The music and spirit of the Grateful Dead have influenced my company’s core principles of service, veganism, and organic agriculture.”
The Grateful Dead, an iconic band of the sixties era, was formed in 1965 in San Francisco, headlined by guitarist and vocalist Jerry Garcia.
The band’s legacy manager and archivist David Lemiuex said the line of deodorant aligns with the Deadheads’ “love of the world around us.”
