They say age is just a number and for the most part I believe this to be true. They even say a persons age can be determined by the wisdom they possess, but I don't think this is true. Wisdom can come at any age. I say age becomes relevant to you when you are looking in the mirror, getting ready to go out with your husband and you look up and see......the first gray hair. It has the nerve to be right up front gleaming away in a mirror at you smiling. "Hello, here I am, silver and coarse… Continue

Everyone seems to be jumping on the green bandwagon - and we're thrilled about it! The reality is, it’s hip to recycle, it’s cool to be eco-friendly. This is why companies are quick to brand their products with advertisements and fancy words insinuating their products are eco-friendly; because there’s a good chance it will help their sales. Here at The Little Seed we are advocates for healthy living, and often advise our readers to… Continue

With Thanksgiving on the horizon parents have the perfect segue to talk to their children about gratitude. From their first introduction to spoken word children are taught to say “thank you”.

But how often do we get time to explain the power of being grateful to our children - to… Continue

If you have ever checked the label on a personal care product you know how confusing it can be to figure out what’s in it. Half of the ingredients you can’t even pronounce! There’s a reason for that: a lot of cosmetic ingredients are composed of chemicals created in laboratories! In fact, the “active ingredients” in most beauty products only account for 1% of the product’s composition. Think about it: what are you putting on your skin? Skin is… Continue
