5 fun facts about anise

September 08, 2015

There's a new Lip Oil at Seed for fall and we think you're going to love it! 

Seed Anise Lip Oil

Do you like black licorice? Yes? Then you will adore our new Seed Soothing Anise Lip Oil.

I thought I'd share 5 fun facts about Anise today.

  •  Anise is used to flavor many popular drinks, including the French absinthe and pastis, Greek ouzo, German Jägermeister, and Italian sambuca.
  • Feeling gassy? In herbal medicine, anise is often used to treat this common stomach woe.
  • Did you know that anise is actually a member of the parsley or carrot family?
  • Many believe that fennel and anise are the same thing. Both taste similar to black licorice, but actually come from different plants.
  • Do you like to fish? Anise can be used on fishing lures to attract fish.

Let's talk about the new product--

Like our other lip oils, the Soothing Anise features a glide-on rollerball applicator. There are no waxes to make it sticky, but the pure seed oils will hydrate the lips and help to repair and protect.

Pumpkin seed, avocado oils and rice bran oils are in this formula to provide extra healing & antioxidant boosts. Black licorice lovers will absolutely love this formula, which is available for a limited time for just $5.

    Still having a hard time finding the perfect gift for the holidays? No need to look any further, because our limited-edition Luxe Lemon Ginger Body Cream is just what you've been looking for.

There is something so very special about this particular body cream.

    It's like a comforting cup of tea.

    Not only is the formula pure luxury with its decadent, rich texture, but the ingredients sink right in to pamper even the driest of skin types.

Did we mention the aroma of the pure oils? It is honestly like a cup of herbal lemon ginger tea. It is comforting and warm, spicy and a bit tart. It is just stunning. Treat yourself -- or someone you love -- to Luxe Lemon Ginger Body Cream from Seed.

    How to protect your skin from the harsh winter elements
    How to protect your skin from the harsh winter elements

    November 26, 2018 1 Comment

    Did you know that this cold, dry winter weather can have a major impact on your skin care routine? Our friends near the Great Lakes are seeing significant amounts of snowfall. My friend Lauren in West Seneca, New York has more than five FEET of snow. Let’s take a look at the low humidity and frigid temperatures affect your skin.

    Itchiness and a tight feeling are common skin issues related to dry air, but there are some skin care tips you can use to help tackle the problem.

    • Be gentle on your skin. When you dry off after bathing, be sure to pat your skin dry. Don’t rub.
    • Always follow your shower or bath with a rich cream layered over body oil.
    • Look for cream formulations instead of lotions and fluids for facial hydration.
    • Avoid ingredients such as alcohol and sulfates, which will cause more dryness.
