Gifts for the Lemon Lover
You may have seen a few mentions lately about some of our favorite small businesses on our social media accounts. We are a small business and those of us behind the scenes here at (seed) are wholly supportive of shopping with our fellow small business owners. There are really so many incredible businesses out there and I'm sharing some favorites today!
First of all, I have mentioned here before that I adore lemon. Lemon bars, lemon meringue pie, lemon essential oil -- you name it; if it is lemon, I am a fan. I am quite sure that many of you love lemon, too, so I am here to share some of my most favorite lemon-themed items this holiday season.
Lemon Gift Ideas
1. I mentioned my love of lemon sweet treats, and I'd love to point you in the direction of Effie's Homemade. It's a Seed favorite business and they have a delicious recipe on their website for Lemon Tart in a Corncake Crust. Make this for a favorite neighbor and take it over for a special treat that will be truly appreciated!
2. Loose leaf tea also makes a lovely gift. If you are a lemon fan, I personally recommend the Lemon Ginger Green Tea from Tealightful. It has lemongrass, orange peel, ginger and lemon peel and is quite fabulous!
3. Seed Lemonade Lip Oil from the Seed Naturally Fun collection is not just for kids, but also kids at heart. This nourishing oil is a treat for your lips -- and your senses -- with real lemon oil. In addition, your lips will be nourished with pumpkin seed oil, grape seed, jojoba, sunflower, raspberry seed and more. It's a favorite for everyone!
4. Create your own Custom Blend right here at Seed! Be a "mixologist" and create a blend in your choice of boy lotion, lip oil, body oil or body wash for that special someone. A couple of suggestions with Lemon Essential Oil:

Essential oils continue to become more and more popular -- and with more science behind the benefits. Today, we are going to enjoy an in-depth look at Patchouli Essential Oil.
Patchouli (Pogostemon Cablin) is distilled from patchouli leaves and features an earthy, warm, musky aroma. You may even detect some light fruit notes from this oil. This is one of those oils that people either tend to love or hate when used on its own. Even people who swear that they could never enjoy its distinctive scent may find that become fans when blended with other oils! Plus, there are so many health and skin care benefits that you will not want to overlook this one.
Argan oil is one of the most promising -- and most proven -- ingredients in skin care. While it is not a new ingredient, it is an important one which has stood the test of time.
Today we're sharing 5 key benefits of this oil. Although it is not as well known as coconut oil or jojoba oil, argan is truly a special oil.
Argan oil, found in both Seed Soft Balm and Seed Advanced Botanicals Extra Moisturizing Face Cream, contains more antioxidant and cell regenerative properties than olive oil, grape seed oil and avocado oil combined.
Did you know that having a skin care ritual is one way to engage in self care?
According to Houston dermatologist Dr. Reena Jogi, “When you do a skin care routine, you’re usually alone, in your bathroom or somewhere quiet, and it’s just you and the mirror. There’s something slightly meditative about just sitting there and taking that 10 minutes just for you.”
We've talked about the skin care benefits of having a consistent routine here on the blog before, but that actual routine has far greater benefits that reach beyond a glowing complexion.
