Our Seed Year in Review
2016 was a big year here at Seed. We would like to thank you for your continued support over the years and let you know how much we appreciate all of you.
Let's take a look back at the best from each month of 2016:
January - Back at the beginning of the year, we laid out of goals for the Seed blog for 2016. Here is a snippet of what I said: "you don't want a sales-y blog doing nothing more than talking about the products we sell. And that's not the type of post I enjoy writing for you. You want information you can relate to. You want topics you are interested in! We also know that our Seed friends have an interest in health & wellness. Our hope is that we will be your go-to source for topics on the connection between mind, body & spirit. We've spoken quite a bit on mindfulness and self care and we hope to provide you with ways you can feel more relaxed, positive & renewed." I sincerely hope I achieved that feeling here for you on the blog.
February - What does natural mean to you? It was a question we posed to real people like you -- and we discussed what it means to us on our blog. Check that post out right here.
March - We announced the launch of our ultra gentle body care line for small children, Good to Grow. While its packaging is fun and whimsical, the ingredients are free of the typical artificial fragrances, dyes, SLS, and other not-so-good ingredients found in children's skin care. Learn more here about Good to Grow.
April - We announced the launch of Satin Lip Gloss, a truly healthy, better for you alternative. These highly pigmented glosses nourish and tint the lips using only the best plant-based ingredients like Abyssinian Seed Oil.
May - It is one of the Seed blog's most popular posts ever -- The Benefits of Abyssinian Seed Oil. This is an ingredient that is lesser known, but full of benefits. It's a key ingredient in our lip gloss, so we took a look at the oil here.
June - Lots of lip gloss talk in June. Since we had recently launched our AMAZING Seed Satin Lip Gloss formula, I wanted to tackle one of your most popular questions: "How do I know which color to choose?" I answered that one in our lip gloss color guide here.
July - Are you a glass half full or half empty type of person? The power of positive thinking and its impact on overall happiness and quality of life was one of my favorite blog topics in July. Find that one here.
August - Seed Advanced Botanicals launched! This was years in the making -- and it shows in terms of the product efficacy and choice of premium, high performance ingredients. Learn more about the launch here.
September - We shared the importance of better ingredients and what that means to us here at Seed. One in-depth post examined our Skin Deep scores, and discussed our Brand Champion status at the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics. Find that discussion here.
October - We were chatty on the blog on everything from whether or not Botox is something to consider to dishing on skin care. My personal favorite post was one debunking some really popular skin care myths. You can check that post out right here.
November - Our hand cream has been a best seller for years. In fact, it's award-winning. We shared our guide for healthy hand care here. From taking better care of cuticles to staying hydrated, we shared our best tips with you.
December - With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, we shared our thoughts on the importance of unplugging, as well as the use of aromatherapy to achieve a feeling of peace and calm. Check out that recent blog post here.
Seed friends, I am wishing you a Happy New Year and look forward to connecting with you all in 2017.

Also in Lately I've been paying more attention
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.
Winter is the ideal time to repair and renew your skin, though. The long, hot summer temperatures -- and extra sun exposure that you experienced -- likely did a bit of damage to your skin, so now is your opportunity to do a bit of repair and restoration.
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.
