Gifts for the Lemon Lover

December 03, 2017

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!

New Seed Custom Blends feature

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:

Seed Lip Balms and Lip Oils deliver beautiful soft lips
Seed Tips: How to Get Beautiful, Soft Lips

November 05, 2019

Are petrolatum-based balms the key to soft lips?

What is the first thing most people reach for when their lips are feeling dry? If you answered the traditional balm for chapped lips sold at the drugstore, you're right. Unfortunately, a crude oil-derived balm is not the best choice.

It's a common misconception that these balms help deliver moisture to the lips. 

Here's what Dr. Mauro C. Rumita, who specializes in esthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery says on the subject: "Contrary to what most people believe, [some] don't hydrate the lips. Instead, they seal moisture out, so lips can't absorb it."

 

Do you need a physical barrier like a balm can provide? Yes, in certain situations. If you are outdoors a lot and exposed to the elements, it would be best to consider a natural balm to give your lips a layer of protection from Mother Nature. While a balm does not deliver moisture into the lips, it does protect.

Our plant based Seed Soft Balm protects without the most common ingredient found in lip balm: petrolatum. Not familiar with petrolatum? Here is a link to more information from the Skin Deep Database. It includes petrolatum's common synonyms, including "mineral grease." I don't know about you, but I don't want that on my lips.

Can essential oils help relieve stress and feelings of anxiety?
Can essential oils help relieve stress and feelings of anxiety?

October 29, 2019

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, occasional anxiety is normal. Don't we all feel anxious around the holidays, for example? Children often feel anxious at the beginning of the new school year or the night before a big test. It's normal. I think any one of us can relate to that feeling.

But, then there are times when anxiety is more than a fleeting feeling. We're friends here. I've been sharing with you here on the Seed blog for several years. I've talked about everything from acne break outs to thoughts on skin aging. I think sometimes that it is therapeutic to write things down. If anything, I hope that sharing can help others.
