10 Totally Indie Breast Cancer Awareness Gems from Etsy Designers

There are still almost two weeks left in October (pause as I grab my calendar in both hands, screeching about the passage of time), which means your days of shopping for any and all things pink and anti-breast cancer are far from over. Today, we've got 10 products gleaned from Etsy, that mecca of indie designers, that will soothe, inspire, moisturize, and show the world you care, all while supporting indie designers. Two for one support, kind of like a really great bra.

Treat your breasts with the care they deserve by using this lovely cream, which was created with "a blend of herbal infused oils that have traditionally been used to help prevent breast cancer, easing swollen and tender breasts and supporting the functions of the lymphatic system." With ingredients like raw cocoa butter, raw shea butter, chickweed, red clover, elderflower, plantain, yarrow, lady's mantle, and rose, this cream turns breast self-examination into a soothing ritual.
