The Best Essential Oils for the Face

September 08, 2017

We've discussed the many benefits of essential oils over the years here on the Seed blog. We haven't really talked about their different facial care benefits, though. We offer different types of facial care formulas, as skin is never one size fits all. 

Seed has the best essential oils for facial skincare

You may have noticed that we offer essential oil blends in addition to our ultra gentle fragrance free cleansers and moisturizers. In addition to adding a light and natural aroma, the essential oils serve a purpose. Today, we're going to talk about our favorite essential oils for the face here at Seed.

When selecting your Advanced Botanicals Facial Cleanser and Advanced Botanicals Facial Moisturizer, we are pleased to offer these options:

Fragrance Free, for those with very sensitive skin
 
If you are not very sensitive, we really recommend our Essential Oils blends. Choose these based on your main skin concerns.
Seed recommends lemon and grapefruit for dull skin
Essential Oils for Dull Skin -- It happens to all of us. As we age, our skin tends to lack the same clarity and even glow associated with our youth. In fact, you told us that this is one of your main skin concerns. There are two essential oils we have chosen in our brightening formula for duller skin: Lemon and Grapefruit. In addition to providing the skin with a more radiant appearance, lemon may help to gradually fade brown spots, while grapefruit oil contains a natural source of alpha hydroxy acids to give skin new life.
Rosemary and Lemongrass for Combination and Oily Skin
Essential Oils for Combination and Oily Skin -- You want moisturized, healthy and soft skin. You do not want an oil slick. We totally understand that! Lemongrass and Rosemary essential oils are the perfect blend for combination/oily skin types. Lemongrass has natural astringent and skin healing properties, while rosemary is antibacterial and helps control excess sebum.
Essential Oils for Dry Skin Types -- Whether your skin is just slightly dry or whether it is parched, Palmarosa essential oil can help. Known for being a skin balancing oil, it is ideal for caring for skin concerns such as eczema and psoriasis. Palmarosa is also nourishing and many believe it has cell renewal benefits.

We cannot believe that it's already the second week of December. While the calendar technically still says Autumn, your skin is likely showing the effects of winter temperatures.

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.

It can be difficult choosing body care for people. Many people find scented products to be too strong.

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. Enriched with sunflower seed oil, grape seed oil, coconut oil, shea butter, antioxidant green tea, and more, our cream makes your skin feel as smooth as satin. 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.
