The Power of Self-Love

By Vanessa Mergulhão As we approach Valentine’s Day and love is on the rise, we have an opportunity to explore this four-letter word a little deeper. In the current state of our world, this is a time that we all need to be rooted in love more than ever.  But where does love really come from? The source of all love comes from within us, which is why self-love is such an important practice to implement into our daily lives. It might sound self-centered at first, but once you start dedicating more attention, love and kindness to yourself, you will be able to express your true essence and power and positively affect everyone around you.

Multi Masking: The Beauty Trend You Need To Try

Contributor: Primally PurePhotographer: Primally Pure We have a new beauty trend you need to try! And here’s why. Skin is always evolving and ever-changing (even on the same complexion), combination skin is more common than you may think and having a couple different conditions you want to focus on is completely normal.  Skin is beautiful and diverse and really does require individual care, which is why we always say we don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all philosophy when it comes to skincare – and why we’ve become obsessed with this beauty trend: MULTI-MASKING.

Sun Potion Sexual Vitality

Whether you're in a partnership or flying solo at the moment, we all can enhance our sexual energy for maximum vitality. Chinese medicine tells us that balanced sexual + creative energy (yes, they are the same!) enhances our Jing, which is our life essence.

By keeping our kidneys healthy and Jing flourishing, through herbs as well as tapping into our sexuality, we ooze with vitality from head-to-toe.  Improper regulation of our sexual energy depletes our Jing which can also in turn cause weakness in our kidneys. It is essential to keep our kidneys happy and nourished as they are the root of life. Strong sexual energy is needed for a juicier life and...

How To Balance Hormones Naturally Part 2

Contributor: Primally PurePhotographer: Primally Pure For more on our Hormone Balancing Series with Caroline Potter, start with Part 1 (all about eliminating toxins) and check out Part 3 (all about food and how it relates to our hormones). We’ve all been there, fallen into the lie that more is better — more hustle, more coffee, more clients is the answer. Hand raised right here, I am guilty too! We as a society in general have glorified the hustle, the busy, the stress so much that quite often we don’t know how to function without it. Our bodies have become used to this new stress equilibrium, even though we physically can’t handle it as well as we think we can.  Keep in mind that stress...
