In my daily quest of being more mindful, more at ease, and more happy, I get super pumped when the products I use are aligned with my mission. I want every single thing that I put on my skin or body, into my mouth, and around me in my space to feel luxurious, smell amazing, and be sourced in a way I can feel good about.
So you can imagine how pumped I was to discover Purity Apothecary, a beautiful line of organic skincare products that are infused with therapeutic essential oils, powerful herbal ingredients, and delicious botanicals. This stuff is good enough to eat!
San Diego-based owner, Christina Price (who contributed an awesome guest post on organic skincare a while back), is a beautiful young vet who wanted to pursue her passion for chemical-free skincare, and make her own way as an entrepreneur in a tricky economy. Well she certainly has accomplished her goal! Her products are beautifully packaged in BPA-free, recyclable packaging, are super effective and potent, and of course, smell absolutely divine. And best of all, they are totally affordable, which is so hard to come by with such high-quality ingredients!
I use her Black Cherry & Rosemary Lip Balm ($5.99) every morning and evening, for lusciously hydrated lips that taste and smell, I swear to god, like my childhood favorite cherry cola (that I haven’t had in about 15 years). I can only imagine that the Lavender Bergamot and Peppermint Plump varieties are just as amazing.
I use the Lavender & Vanilla Soap ($6.99) daily, which leaves our bathroom smelling like a tranquil spa, and leaves my hands moist and happy. I am totally obsessed with the Awakened Chakra Bath Salts ($24.99), made with spearmint and rosemary infused pink himalayan sea salt, which soothe muscles, restore magnesium levels, and melt away tension and stress. And my absolute faves are the heavenly aromatherapy sprays. I use the Organic Fresh Lavender Spray ($19.99) to freshen my office and create a soothing and calm environment for my clients. And as an added bonus, I can use it as an invigorating body spray to pick me up throughout the day! Christina also makes an awesome Yoga Mat Spray ($19.99), which cleanses stinky mats with anti-microbial and anti-bacterial tea tree oil. And of course, you can also use it as a post-workout body spray to awaken your senses and intensify the calming effects of your practice!
I have to say, I’m in love!
