As a brand founded and run by women, Musee is very excited to share our love and gratitude for the many notable ladies that have impacted history and the global community. There is no wrong time, place, or age to make a positive change. The voice of women is resonant throughout the generations. We can all name strong women in our personal lives, but it is also important to celebrate the fearless females that have served as inspirational figures to boys and girls alike.
Musee is pleased to introduce Women of Change bath balms that showcase some of our favorite historical feminine figureheads.
“Adventure is worthwhile in itself!”
Eyes fixated on the horizon, she soared above the clouds. Earhart was the first woman pilot to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. She also claims title as the first person to fly solo across the Pacific from Honolulu to Oakland, CA. On that journey, she casually sat back and sipped a cup of hot chocolate. The sky was not the limit but the standard, and she consistently strove to fly higher. Her aim was to be the first woman to fly all the way around the world. Although she unfortunately was unable to accomplish her goal, she was never afraid of pushing the boundary and setting new heights despite the turbulence. She spread her wings and took off.
Our bath balm in tribute to the legendary pilot boasts a bright blue color to mimic the vast skies that she conquered. The liberating scent of both jasmine and jojoba oil will elevate your senses as you drift into the atmosphere. Equipped with a fun magnet surprise, the bath balm ensures that you will always have a memento to remember Amelia as her story continuously spreads.
“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.”
Singing the harmony of ink onto a page, she released a chorus of poetry. Maya Angelou was a civil rights activist, world-renowned for her collection of poems and award-winning 1969 memoir, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. Born in the midst of the Great Depression, she suffered severe trauma as a child that led to an era of silence in the writer’s life. When she found herself unable to speak, she learned the art of voicing her opinion on paper. Overcoming the harsh trials of her youth, she marched on to face new challenges, such as giving birth at the age of 17, entering an interracial marriage in her early twenties, and assisting Martin Luther King Jr. in his dream for a new reality. As her works rose in prominence and she gathered more years to contribute to the story of her life, she found success as an influential speaker, stirring listeners to enact change in their own lives.
The Angelou bath balm contains an energetic mix of blood orange and almond essential oils. It is decorated with vibrant colors of confetti to commemorate the life of a woman who not only lived, but thrived. She was unapologetically loud, funny, sexy, and free. Soaking in a Musee bath allows for a moment of appreciation, not just of the women we respect but of the joy found in living.
“Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly?”
Channeling her dreams through paint, she created a portal to another world. Kahlo was a Mexican painter who became an icon as a result of her many self-portraits and artistic experimentation. Painting first called to her after a bus accident that left her unable to walk for three months during her childhood. She not only found a good way to pass the time, but fell in love with the art, sparking a lifelong romance with the canvas. Years later, she was the first Mexican artist to be featured in a French collection at the Louvre. Her work has been praised for its incorporation of Mexican national and indigenous traditions. It also presented the unique perspective of women through the lens of woman, which was a rare viewpoint at her time.
Simple and lovely, we created a periwinkle bath balm, adorned with a single flower, reminiscent of the lavish blooms that would sit on Frida’s head. Sometimes it is a single rose that inspires a revolution of imagination and possibility. Frida enjoyed painting herself because she claimed that she knew herself best. Taking a bath is the perfect time to really think about who you are and who you want to become.
