Video: This Is The One Ingredient You Always Want To Avoid

I had heard the facts floating around the internet about this one ingredient that has become known as “the new second-hand smoke.” The new second-hand smoke? Clearly, this is serious stuff and plays a significant role in the state of our overall health. The more I found out, the more furious I became. One of the most toxic ingredients you’ll find on any product label is fragrance. Not only are artificial fragrances found in almost all conventional cleaning products, personal care products + cosmetics (even many “natural” options), they find their way into shampoo, perfume, candles, air freshener, laundry detergent,...

3 Ways To Use Our Sea Soak (That Don't Include A Bathtub)

This time of year, nothing sounds more soothing than soaking in a warm epsom salt bath. But some of us may not have the luxury of having a bathtub in our home – which is so sad because our bath salts are to die for. Plus, they have incredible benefits for your body, mind and well-being. But good news! Just because they’re called bath soaks, doesn’t mean you actually need a bathtub to enjoy them. Even without a tub, you can still experience the benefits of our bath salts – especially our Sea Soak. Here’s how. SOOTHING FOOT SOAK While...

Switching to natural skincare doesn’t have to difficult – or expensive. We’re sharing some easy swaps for the products you’re probably using every day.

Video: This Unlikely Ingredient May Be Just What Your Skin Is Missing

For the last several decades, we’ve been told that fats (on our plates and in our skincare products in the form of oils) are bad. Thankfully, that myth is well on its way out. Healthy fats are actually beneficial AND essential when it comes to our overall health, starting at a cellular level. One fat in particular, tallow (specifically from grass fed cows), is a game changer. Not only is beef tallow a healthy cooking fat, but it also acts as a topical superfood for the skin! Tallow is an incredibly nourishing, vitamin-rich form of pure, rendered animal fat that’s...

How To Create A Space That Promotes Peace + Wellness

Whether we realize it or not, our physical environment really does have an impact on our emotional well-being and everyday wellness. But among the inevitable responsibilities + distractions of the day (hours of running errands, a long chaotic commute or just another mundane day at the office), it can be tough to find times and places that help to restore a sense of calm and quiet. Creating a home you can return to after a long day that makes you feel comfortable, peaceful, and inspired makes a significant difference for your mood, mind, and overall sense of wellness. A little...

Podcast: How To Use Customer Feedback To Transform Your Biz (With Our Founder Bethany McDaniel)

Ever since a friend of mine turned me on to The Goal Digger Podcast a little over a year ago, I’ve been hooked! Each episode of Goal Digger is filled with wisdom, helpful insights, real examples and a whole lot of inspiration. I remember binge listening for hours on end when I first became a Goal Digger fan – I couldn’t wait to dig into my business and make adjustments + try new things. When Jenna asked me to come on the show as a guest, I jumped at the chance to share the story of how Primally Pure came...

What You Need to Know About Using Natural Deodorant

It's not a secret, natural deodorants do work differently (ahem, and better!) than traditional ones. And at first, these differences may seem a bit difficult to get used to. Natural products made without any preservatives can create a consistency that's unlike conventional ones, pure oils can be more prone to melting in warmer temperatures without stabilizers, and fewer ingredients creates a more concentrated deodorant causing the application process to look a little bit different. But without a doubt, the health benefits of switching to a safe deodorant option far outweigh any potential pitfalls. We know you've got a lot going...

Our 5 Favorite Supplements For Better Skin

While we do our best to care for our skin with non-toxic products, nutrient-dense foods and falling asleep at a decent hour, sometimes life throws us curve balls and we’re not always as consistent with our skincare routine + healthy lifestyle as we’d like to be. That’s one of the several reasons why we are such big advocates for adding in skin-loving supplements into our day-to-day. Even if a daily green juice and weekly facial aren’t a part of your reality (and if it is, please share your secrets!), supplements play a big part in promoting skin health and help...

4 Tips To Get Rid Of Adult Acne

There’s this myth floating around that acne should end when high school does. The reality? Acne isn’t a skin condition reserved only for our pre-teen or prom days. If you’re suffering from acne, yet it’s years after graduation day, you’re not alone. The majority of adults (especially women) actually experience breakouts + blemishes. Acne is a complex skin condition with multiple causes – stemming from our external and internal environments. Since our skin is a reflection of what’s going on beneath the surface, it’s essential to work with the entire body for beautiful, healthy skin. Our tissues, organs and systems...

Our dear friends, Caroline Potter + Justine Campbell of the Colorful Eats Podcast, often talk about holistic health + safe skincare in several of their episodes, but this is the first time they’ve had an esthetician on as a guest. I’m SO honored to have been invited to share my knowledge + passion on their podcast and to spend time with such incredible, like-minded women. It all started back in the day, in my basement. My obsession with the beauty industry began when I was 11 and I would offer full makeovers for my friends in my makeshift spa. Fast...

Our Collabs Coordinator Shares 4 Ways To Create Authentic Community

We see the word “collaboration” all over social media these days through ads, partnerships and photos – but what does that word really mean and how do you stand out amongst the crowd? To me, it’s all about the genuine connections that are made based on aligned values, which ultimately creates community. Collaborating is creating together, and that is a beautiful thing! Being Primally Pure’s Collaborations Coordinator has given me a greater sense of how important community is to a brand. After all, without a sense of community there is nobody to share your message with. While having a large...

Video: Why Blue Tansy Will Change Your Deodorant Game

When I smelled Blue Tansy for the first time, it was love at first sniff. I’ve since incorporated this anti-inflammatory, beautiful blue essential oil into our Body Oil, Beauty Cream, and most recently – our new Blue Tansy Deodorant!

Beauty Trend: Why Blue Tansy Has Become A Staple In Skincare

When our founder, Bethany, first came to us with her brilliant idea to include blue tansy essential oil in a new product line, passionately touting its skin-healing benefits and repeatedly professing that she just wanted to bathe her whole body in it, she passed around this aromatic oil to have our team sniff-test it. But to be honest, I was not a fan. Like, at all. And I like everything. However, the more I began to learn about the potent anti-inflammatory properties of this flower and started reading the reviews that flooded our website about the healing powers of this...

The not-so-good news: Your precious little ones can be prone to a common skin condition called eczema – which reveals itself with severe dryness, scaly/itchy patches, redness, and irritation.

How To Get Clear Skin Naturally

We’ll cut straight to the chase: to achieve a naturally clear complexion, it’s essential to take a holistic approach. Our skin is our largest organ and is connected to other organs and other tissues and other cells. It’s also brilliant at revealing imbalances within the body. So there’s absolutely no way we can properly or effectively care for the skin if we isolate it from every other part of us. From the products we apply to our skin, to the food we put on our plate, to the way we cope with stress, here’s how to get clear skin naturally....

The Ugly Truth Behind Drugstore Deodorant And What You Should Use Instead

Maybe the drugstore was the only place to purchase deodorant while you were growing up, so it’s still your go-to. Maybe the popular magazines listed award-winning antiperspirants, so you continue to shop for their top pick. Maybe no one ever told you about the dangerous ingredients you’re applying to your pits, so you keep swiping the same chemical-laden, conventional deodorant day after day. While deodorant may not seem like a big deal, it’s actually one of the biggest ways you can either contribute to your toxic buildup or bring nourishing, natural ingredients to your body. When you consider all of...

I Detoxed My Makeup Bag And Here’s How

Here are a few things you probably didn’t know about me: I used to be a makeup junkie – and not a natural makeup junkie. Allure was my go-to magazine and would guide me through the drugstore as I devoured their new product trends. If I was having a bad day, only a new lip gloss would make it better. Sephora was my happy place. I could not wait to wake up in the morning to make up my face and would spend a solid hour getting ready – complete with a nude lip + smokey eye. I wore so...
