When will we be adding a Cherry Blossom Body Cream? Thank you for asking!
When will we have a Cherry Blossom Body Cream?
Most likely, never. Don't get me wrong, it sounds lovely. So, Why?
We have Fragrance Free, we have Lavender, we have Lemongrass, we have Eucalyptus, we have....a dozen essential oils which you can enjoy purely, or in your selected combination, but we don't have
I wish there were a beautiful cherry blossom essential oil. But I don't see it at any of our reputable essential oil suppliers. Or peony (wouldn't that be amazing?) While there are always advances in what talented distillers can pull from natural botanicals, until they do, please know that fragrances like melon or cherry blossom or many fruits and flowers are just - please forgive me for being so frank: fake. Yes, new essential oils do happen, but overall, what some try to sell as an essential oil is really a fragrance oil. And there's a big difference. (read our article here)
Why should you care if it's fake? Well, maybe it doesn't matter to you. Me? I started getting headaches when I was a teenager from this beautiful perfume I loved from the department store. Come to find out, that isn't that uncommon. Here's another good reason to avoid synthetic fragrance: It is the #1 topical skin allergen. Unexplained rashes, eczema? I'd start with clearing out synthetic fragrance! Phthalates, found in synthetic fragrance? That's a whole other article!

Also in Lately I've been paying more attention
Date palm extract is one of those treasures. We knew it needed to play a major role in our best-selling Seed Advanced Botanicals Extra Moisturizing Face Cream. Just what is date palm extract and why is it one of the best anti-aging ingredients available today? Let's learn more.
Today we're taking a look back at a common hand cream ingredient: dimethicone. This is silicone. Let’s learn a bit more.
Can you believe it is already the first full week of 2019? Me either!
I don't particularly care for New Year's Resolutions. Quite frankly, I believe in living each day one day at a time. I also believe that instead of trying to fix what we perceive as being flaws, we should resolve to treat ourselves more kindly. I do have some skin care and beauty resolutions that I would like to share with you, though.
1. Resolve to wash your face every single night before bed -- no exceptions.
Dermatologists recommend removing makeup each night for several reasons. First of all, if you do not remove your makeup, your pores will not have a chance to "breathe".
Your pores will become clogged with the ingredients in your makeup, no matter how natural it may be. The sebum will become trapped in your pores and you're risking a breakout. Leaving on eye makeup can cause other issues, such as redness, irritation, and even infection.
Environmental contaminants also lurk on the skin, so a gentle cleansing is in order.
You also may begin to look older if you do not remove your makeup at night. Why? Your skin cells regenerate at night at a faster rate than daytime. If your skin cannot breathe because of makeup left behind, the cell regeneration process won't be effective, making your skin look older over time.
Choose a gentle cleanser such as Seed Advanced Botanicals Daily Facial Cleanser.
