Zeep Plug Primer

Treat your lobes right with this plug primer from Zeep, which contains nourishing ingredients such as olive oil and beeswax.

Based at the northern end of Washington state, Zeep collects herbs from the forest by hand which are then used to create these 100% organic salves.

Plug Primer is a powerful plant potion for plug priming perfection, and a great everyday aftercare for all possible piercings. Zeep starts by harvesting Usnea lichen and plantain leaf in the forest and fields of NE Washington state. These herbs are infused in an olive oil and beeswax base,  imparting anti-bacterial and skin conditioning protection. The final addition of Oakmoss absolute and Cedarwood essential oils impart an inspiring, natural scent. 

In our drop-down menus for adding to cart, we show the gauge of the item you are ordering, then the length/diameter, then the ball size if it has any:

Jewelry is measured through a gauge system (conversion chart below). The higher the gauge number the smaller the wire is. For reference, a standard "earring" is usually 20 gauge. Jewelry gauges can vary between manufacturers. There is no universal regulation on companies to make a standard size in body jewelry. This is because some jewelry is made outside of the USA and measured in millimeters. And in the USA jewelry is measured in inches.

Rings

Rings are an essential item that can be worn in many piercings. They come in various styles:
  • Captive bead rings - These use tension to hold a bead in place.
  • Clickers - These use a hinge to open and close the ring.
  • Segment rings - These have a "segment" that comes completely out of the jewelry similar to removing a bead. But it looks like a completely seamless piece of jewelry.
  • Seamless rings - These rings require bending to open & close.

I'm a huge fan or wooden plugs and as you know they can be dry and hard to put in. This stuff is amazing! A little goes a long way though! Smells very good (kinda earthy) and I can pop in my wooden plugs like nothing. Highly recommend.

Love this! Used it on my ears during my last upsize. It was my first time doing it outside of the shower and went way easier than I expected.
