Hello from Central Oregon! My name is Yancy and I am the owner of Five Seed. I started the business in January 2010 in order to meet the needs of customers who, like me, wanted the purest moisturizers, perfumes and cosmetics available. Organic, fair trade and sustainable – no preservatives, dyes or stabilizers. I grew up fascinated with herbal healing and aromatherapy – a passion reflected by the items in my shop.
I am also a faithful bicycle commuter. I try to bicycle to my destinations at least 80% of the time. I’ve loved riding bicycles all my life, but bicycle commuting became important to me after the BP oil spill in the Gulf. Horrified by yet another environmental disaster born of our dependence on oil, I decided to try on an alternative lifestyle – transportation powered by two feet instead of petroleum.
I have a small “fleet” of bicycles – a red mountain bike, a detatchable trailer and a blue cruiser. My gas-guzzling car has been moved out of the garage to make room for my new mode of transportation!
I started this blog as a companion to my Etsy shop, but it has grown into much more than that. Here, I talk about bicycle commuting, herbal healing, consumerism, feminism, natural beauty, green living, gardening and so much more!
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to come around again!
