Sowing the Seeds of Change


0032Let us tell you about the Seeds of Change: This powerful antioxidant oil blend of cold-pressed organic seeds enhances the skin’s renewal by preventing cellular degradation and free radical damage while supporting it’s delicate biome.

A human skin cycle is generally considered to be about 28 days, though it gets longer as we grow older. It takes a mere 28 days for baby cells to mature and then become our outer layer cells before they slough off and become part of the outside world. But this event is not merely a cycle; every time a new cell is created it is slightly changed and does not renew exactly as the time before. Seeds of Change is a lovely way to take this opportunity to support your skin in renewing in an upward spiral of health and beauty!

Who Is It For?

Everyone except those with the most “reactive” sensitive skin can get a boost by periodically adding Seeds of Change to your regular regimen. We like to think of it as “Super-Foods” for your skin. We need our daily dose of Nourishment (Nourish & Replenish Oil) and Hydration (Your Mineral Mist), but sometimes your body just wants a little more.

Seeds of Change is especially helpful for mature or damaged skin as an added means of reducing the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and sun damage. In this case, use more often! (and be sure to eat well and use a hat when you are outdoors for more than 15 minutes; a physical barrier works so much better than a chemical one!)

When to Use It?

An easy way to create a gentle and lasting change is to add 5-10 drops to 1 tsp of Sow Your Wild Oats and 1 tsp water. Apply as you normally would for cleansing with Sow Your Wild Oats or get into the shower and and gently scrub with wet fingertips. As with all cleansing, remove with a damp washcloth. Do this up to 4 times a week.

When looking to make a dramatic change, use Seeds of Change both morning and evening to moisturize in combination with your Mineral Mist (5 drops oils emulsified with 5 pumps mineral mist) for up to 3 weeks before taking a break (1-3 weeks). Repeat as needed, but remember, you cannot live on super foods alone, you still need the basic necessities for proper health and skin function.

Seeds of Change is a perfect companion to any of our Clay Masks. Simply massage 3-4 drops over clean skin before applying your specific Clay Mask. And, in addition, a weekly Herbal Steaming while massaging with Seeds of Change is simply divine.

A Breakdown of Our Ingredients:

Cranberry Seed Oil: Cranberry Seed Oil easily penetrates the skin and is rich in Vitamin E, Vitamin A (essential for healing blemished skin) along with other important antioxidants. This certified organic oil also possesses a unique balance of Omega 3, 6 and 9 essential fatty acids not found in other oils, giving those who use Seeds of Change on a regular basis more resilience to cellular degradation in the rebuilding phase.

Rosehip Seed Oil: In the fall, all of the roses that were not picked from their stems become a small fruit which is the seed that may become the next generation of roses. Our certified organic rosehip oil is the oil pressed from these seed-fruits. High in essential fatty acids as well as natural Vitamin C, it has traditionally been used to soften and rejuvenate aging and damaged skin.

Apricot Kernel Seed Oil: light and skin-softening, the organic apricot kernel oil provides nutrition for the skin as well as protecting against damage caused by free radicals. Rich in Vitamin E and oleic acids, this oil give Seeds of Change it’s long lasting hydration retention.

Broccoli Seed Oil: Quick to absorb while pulling minerals and water into the cells, this precious oil is teeming with high omega-9 fatty acids and Vitamin A content. This makes the proportions we use in Seeds of Change excellent for moisture retention and encouraging cellular turnover.

Black Cumin Seed Oil: Nigella sativa is one the most revered medicinal seeds in history. These tiny black cumin seeds provide an all-around super multi-vitamin of nutrition. The ethically-sourced organic seed oil we use is highly anti-inflammatory and super-supportive of the skin’s metabolic function.

Golden Jojoba Seed Oil: This lovely seed oil closely resembles human sebum, a waxy substance produced by our skin glands, so it can act as a natural skin conditioner and seals the skin against destructive elements.

Pure Olive Squalene: Similar to the squalene component in human sebum {the skin’s source of oil that our glands produce to hold onto hydration}, we use this naturally derived oil as a stable source of protective moisture in Seeds of Change.
