The UK Tree Council has been organising a seed Gathering season since 1998, the campaign is to raise awareness of the benefit of trees for the planet and everyone.

The idea is to gather seeds, fruits and nuts and grow the trees of the future particularly with children in mind.

Through the centuries plants and seeds have been used in the production of cosmetics and skin care.

Here is a list of the 9 most used seeds and their benefits:

Mango seed butter: for a skin skin-conditioning agent

Argan oil: it’s packed with omega fatty acids, vitamin E, and linoleic acids, all of which can help to l moisturise your skin, and even reduce acne.

Hemp seed oil: is rich in properties which makes it an effective moisturiser and a barrier to pollutants and it also helps soothe muscle aches and pains.
