Welcome To Our New Space! (A Photo Tour)

It’s hard to believe that just 6 months ago, I was making products in my kitchen and shipping orders from the room in our house that is now our daughter’s nursery. Primally Pure had taken over our entire house at that point (all the while I had been daydreaming about new office inspiration). Our living room, kitchen, and guest bedroom were all stuffed with stacks of boxes filled with jars, bottles, coconut oil, and all sorts of containers/ingredients. Our tiny kitchen was nearly impossible to cook or eat in, as I was making product in it almost every waking hour....

5 Simple Ways To Treat Yo Self!

As a new mom, I’m realizing the importance of providing myself with small and easy indulgences whenever I can find the time. It definitely isn’t easy, but I’m finding that I have more energy and drive to take care of others when I am able to care for myself as well. And while I would LOVE to spend a week in a luxury over-the-water bungalow in Fiji, go on regular shopping sprees, get a massage once a week etc., these things aren’t always a possibility (as much as I would like them to be)! So instead, we’re going to focus...

Natural Deodorant 101

When I first learned about the yucky and potentially dangerous ingredients found in conventional deodorant (aluminum, parabens and phthalates – oh my!), I knew I couldn’t continue to use it. The first place I turned was grocery store brands. I tried many of them with little to no success. As much as I wanted them to work, they just didn’t do the trick (far from it – none of them gave me lasting odor protection and I even developed a natural deodorant rash from a few of them). In the midst of my search for the perfect natural deodorant, I...

Oil Cleansing Method (How To Do It And Why It Works)

As an oily-skinned and acne-prone teenager, I grew up thinking that harsh = better when it came to cleansers. I would buy and try every cleanser that promised to strip away oil (completely opposite of the oil cleansing method) and, as a result, get rid of pimples and blemishes. Unfortunately, these cleansers never seemed to work like the commercials on TV promised. My skin would always feel super dry after a wash, but soon afterwards it would be overcome with unnatural amounts of oil/grease. It wasn’t until much later that I learned why. By drying my skin out with harsh...

How To Use Activated Charcoal

Activated Charcoal is one of skincare’s best kept secrets. And since it has so many uses that aren’t talked about too often, I really wanted to show you guys how to use activated charcoal! My first experience with activated charcoal (AC) happened a few years ago when I came down with a nasty bout of food poisoning. Instead of seeing a doctor or taking medicine, I decided to consult Dr. Google on what to do. I probably typed in “natural remedies for food poisoning” or something like that. One of the first things that popped up was activated charcoal (charcoal...

Harmful Ingredients In Sunscreen And How To Prevent Sun Damage Naturally

I used to spend a LOT of time in the sun. Between competitive swimming and water polo in high school, life guarding nearly every summer as a teenager, and years of shameless sun bathing in an all-out effort to become the darkest version of myself possible, I’ve definitely had more than my fair share of sun exposure. Looking back on my years of reckless sun worshiping, I kick myself. Not just for spending more than a healthy amount of time in the sun, but more so for not paying any attention to all of the harmful ingredients in sunscreen that...
