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!

Can essential oils help treat the symptoms of anxiety?
Can essential oils help treat the symptoms of anxiety?

April 17, 2018

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, occasional anxiety is normal. Don't we all feel anxious in December? Children often feel anxious at the beginning of the new school year or the night before a big test. It's normal. I think any one of us can relate to that feeling.

But, then there are times when anxiety is more than a fleeting feeling. We're friends here. I've been sharing with you here on the Seed blog for several years. I've talked about everything from acne break outs to thoughts on skin aging. I think sometimes that it is therapeutic to write things down. If anything, I hope that sharing can help others.

April 10, 2018

We wanted to create an easy guide that is basic for those of you who feel intimidated by the wide range of products on store shelves. I have been in the skin care industry for more than half my life.
