Though it doesn’t get talked about enough, sexual wellness and pleasure are a large part of our lives. Our society is slowly altering the stigma behind female pleasure and sexual pleasure not being considered taboo or inappropriate. Despite this, women continue to face hardships not only in being open about pleasure in everyday life but the business world too. When it comes down to thinking about the subject of sexual wellness, these products and treatments are the same as any other type of wellness. Angela Mustone, the creator of High on Love, is one of the women helping us change the taboo nature surrounding female pleasure and wellness. 

Angela Mustone

Over the past 15 years, Angela Mustone has been a driving force behind some of the most innovative sexual health and wellness products on the market. Prior to becoming the president of Produits Amour & Beauté, she worked for California Exotic Novelties, Dermalogica, and in the beauty industry. An international sales expert and fluent in three languages, Mustone has a unique global perspective that transverses multiple markets and demographics. She sources only the best ingredients from around the globe, fine-tuning each blend to perfection. Back in 2018, CEO Angela Mustone launched HighOnLove® with a mission: to celebrate pleasure and make it accessible to women everywhere. In an era when sexual wellness was still stigmatized, her female-focused brand stood proudly, pioneering a new era with products designed to enhance intimacy with the benefits of botanicals. The entire HighOnLove® line is vegan, cruelty-free, and made with clean ingredients, so you can feel good in every way. We are committed to sourcing premium, natural ingredients that deliver results while providing a well-deserved moment of self-care or intimacy. Each product lives up to its promise, as proven by a loyal customer base and global social media community.

Hemp Seed Dry Body Oil

Mustone loves discussing her business and building the community around her company. According to Mustone, “HighOnLove® exists to break down the stigma surrounding sexuality, self-love and cannabis. Recognizing the power of CBD and hemp seed oil in the wellness realm, I knew that the right formulas could lead to extraordinary results…Hemp seed oil is truly remarkable for intimate products. It’s rich in nutrients and antioxidants, which nourish and moisturize the skin, leaving it feeling soft and hydrated. Plus, it has natural anti-inflammatory properties, making it perfect for sensitive areas. We chose hemp oil for its holistic benefits and its ability to enhance the overall experience of intimacy. Intimacy is not something we should shy away from. I created my brand to empower women and remind them that their self-care and sexuality are crucial for living a healthy, happy life…Our brand promotes a healthy, sex-positive attitude. We encourage women to explore their sexuality on their own and become intimate with themselves, first and foremost. We believe that each and every woman should be responsible for – and proud of – her own pleasure and sensuality. At the same time, we are all about beautiful things. Our products are little luxuries – we really believe in the simple joys of gorgeous bottles filled with high-quality products that truly live up to the promise.”

When considering the business industry, going through hurdles was something Mustone had to encounter. Thinking about keeping a business afloat through multiple dips and rises in our economy can be difficult, Mustone describes “Funding and raising capital was the initial challenge in starting out my business. Now, it’s about the shift in retail after COVID-19. There have been ups and downs but it’s all about adapting. We’ve put way more effort into our online community on social media, and elevating our website for e-commerce. We’re also expanding globally, focusing on establishing the brand in top European markets such as Paris and Germany.” We asked more questions about Mustone’s experience as a businesswoman advocating for the sexual well-being and experience of others. 


Q: Was it difficult to build a business that focused on sexual wellness? Specifically female (or those with female reproductive parts) based? Was it difficult for you and your business to be taken seriously? What were some roadblocks you faced in the early stages or even now?

Mustone: Building a business in sexual wellness, especially with a focus on female pleasure, definitely had its challenges. Initially, there were some raised eyebrows and misconceptions, but I saw it as an opportunity to break barriers and spark important conversations. One of the main roadblocks was overcoming taboos surrounding the topic. Even now, as sexual wellness reaches the mainstream market, we continue to push boundaries.

Q: Where does the name of the brand come from?

Mustone: It’s a little play on words since cannabis hemp seed oil is involved, of course, but our brand name’s version of getting “high” is more about elevating well-being – from self-

care or self-love to romance with a partner. It’s about taking pleasure from these outlets and being shameless about it. We believe that love should be celebrated in all its forms, including the love we share intimately. Our products don’t contain THC, so there is no high. It’s about taking pleasure from these outlets and being shameless about it. Because why should anyone be?

Q: How do you think we can normalize female pleasure in today’s society? The use of toys and other goodies are becoming more common and normalized in our sexual lives, but how do you think your brand contributes to the overall normalization of including the use of toys in the bedroom?

Mustone:  Normalizing female pleasure is a journey, but it’s one we’re passionate about. 

HighOnLove contributes by creating luxurious, high-quality products that empower individuals to explore their desires without shame or stigma. By promoting open dialogue, education, and celebration of pleasure, we’re helping to reshape societal norms and embrace the diversity of sexual experiences. We’re also very active on social media, and we are committed to growing that community not just to promote our brand, but as a space to normalize and promote female pleasure.

Q: In my experience, as I am sure a large number of other women have, in heterosexual relationships, sometimes it can feel intimidating to your partner for you to bring in a vibrator or another device during these intimate times. Do you have any advice on how to reassure your partner that a toy will not “replace” them?

Mustone: Absolutely, it’s a common concern. Communication is key here. Reassure your partner that introducing toys isn’t about replacing them, but rather enhancing the experience for both of you. It’s about exploring new avenues of pleasure together and adding excitement to your intimate connection. Encourage them to see it as a fun, adventurous way to deepen your bond.

Stimulating O Gel

Some of the most popular HighOnLove® products include the Stimulating Sensual Oil and Stimulating O Gel. The bestselling HighOnLove® Stimulating O Gel is a fusion of natural ingredients with premium hemp seed oil designed to make each glide and touch more exhilarating, taking your climax to the next level. This water-based blend is transformative for those experiencing vaginal dryness, discomfort or decreased libido. Stimulating O Gel is safe for use with toys and latex condoms.

It can even be used as a lubricant. HighOnLove® Stimulating Sensual Oil helps boost blood flow, promote the production of natural lubricants, banish discomfort, and increase pleasurable sensations.  A few drops of this award-winning blend of natural oils and premium hemp seed oil is all it takes to ignite a more intense orgasmic experience.

Stimulating Oil

These products are the same but with slightly different formulations (one is oil-based and one is water-based). Both are bestsellers, and they’re favorites among customers because they heighten sensation and arousal, leading to more intense and fulfilling climaxes. Plus, they’re crafted with all-natural ingredients, including hemp seed oil, for a luxurious and indulgent feel. Mustone describes “people love these products for their effectiveness and the added pleasure they bring to their intimate moments. They’ve been game-changers for those who experience discomfort or dryness, including new moms and those who might be approaching menopause. It gives me a real sense of satisfaction to know that these products really work and help women take back their pleasure…Every time I get a message on social media from someone who says their sex life has been improved by the Stimulating Oil or Gel, or someone who just pampering herself with our self-care products, I’m truly overjoyed – that’s what makes it worth it, for me.”
