The Skin Care Benefits of LemongrassMove over peppermint -- this girl has a new fragrance favorite!
I love mint, from the taste to the cooling feeling on the skin. When I am choosing my own Beneficial Blends, I tend to choose ones that include peppermint. For example, Grapefruit + Peppermint is probably my shower favorite. Interestingly, lemongrass was never on my radar. Of course, I love what it can do for the skin, but the scent never stood out. Have you ever noticed how your tastebuds can change as you get older? I never used to like onions. Now I love them. The same holds true for your olfactory preferences.
I am all about Lemongrass now. There is just something about the scent. It's citrusy, but not like a straight lemon. It has a warm, herbaceous to it as well. I am in love with its smell.
I know I am not alone! Raise your hand if you wish you could find a good lemongrass lotion. I see you and I agree. That is something I love about our Beneficial Blends -- you can choose to have a single note added to your Seed favorites -- so if you want a true lemongrass body lotion, you can have us add in Lemongrass. Do yourself a favor and get it in the Body Wash and oil, too. You'll want to wrap yourself up in its gorgeous scent. If you would like a blend with lemongrass and other essential oils, check out our Lemongrass Blends.
Lemongrass Facial Care Benefits
As it is antibacterial, it may help to lessen acne flare ups and act as an astringent to help tone and clarify the skin. It may also help temporarily give pores a smaller appearance. Excess sebum may be better controlled by using products containing lemongrass as opposed to stronger ingredients that will strip the skin on its natural oils. Additionally, Lemongrass shows anti-fungal properties, so if you have skin issues caused by a fungus, it may help improve the visible effects. Check out our lemongrass facial options here and here.

We cannot believe that it's already the third week of January! Yes, it is snowy and cold. The heat is always running and it definitely can wreak havoc on the skin.

Here at Seed, we are sharing our expert tips for soft, healthy looking skin all winter long.
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.
