When will we be adding a Cherry Blossom Body Cream? Thank you for asking!

When will we have a Cherry Blossom Body Cream?
Cherry Blossom Fragrance
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

synthetic fragrance.

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!

How is Seed Soft Balm different from other natural skin care balms?
How is Seed Soft Balm different from other natural skin care balms?

September 25, 2018

Yes, Seed Soft Balm is a luxury skin balm. While there are other luxury body balm products out there. they tend to feature long ingredients lists that include “everything but the kitchen skin” -- a long ingredients list doesn’t equate to a better product. It has a greater chance of causing skin reactions, and that is something we are very mindful of here at Seed.

There is a method to our madness. Have you ever noticed that "everything but the kitchen sink" approach to formulation that I mentioned above? When you look at labels, there are something more than 20 ingredients in a single product! More doesn't equal better. Actually, the truth is that when you throw in many different oils and botanicals, they can counteract each other's effects, reducing the benefits. We don't want that. They also are MUCH more likely to cause an allergic response.
