Seed Body Care Sunflower Benefits

 

Sunflowers are actually my most favorite flowers of all time. I have them growing in my garden and I also have them scattered  around my home and out on the patio in vases  and planters. To me, they signify pure happiness and profound joy! When I see them, I automatically smile.

Today, I'd like to share a bit about the actual flower itself -- we'll look at the symbolism and learn more about what the flower represents. Aren't sunflowers gorgeous? No wonder I do my writing out on my patio where I can look at them each day!

The best product for shaving? Hint: It's not from the drugstore!

Do you still use shaving cream from the drugstore?

Take a look at the back of the canister when you use it next time. Chances are, Triethanolamine and Propane are near the top of the ingredients listing.

  • Triethanolamine is an emulsifier and pH adjuster; can be especially hazardous when combined with Diazolidinyl Urea. Studies have shown that a large number of cosmetics with TEA (short for Triethanolamine) are contaminated with Nitrosamines, which are carcinogenic. (source)
  • Propane, a hydrocarbon, is a propellant. It helps give the product its mousse-like fluffy foam. It is extremely sensitizing to the lungs in moderate doses. It can be highly irritating to the skin, nasal passages and mucus membranes. More than 6,500 studies have been conducted on propane. It is a skin, lung, and eye irritant. (source)

We have shared many "hacks" using our products over the years. Before we had lip products, Rebecca would apply our body cream to her chapped lips.

Can Seed products be used on the hair? Yes, absolutely!

Our friend, Tori, uses our Soft Balm on her hair and Susan, one of our valued customers, shares this about our Body Oil:
