Valentine’s Day Gift Bag is Back!

Valentine's Day Gift Bag

Valentines Day is next Saturday, but you still have time to order your special someone a hand-stamped drawstring bag with any bar of soap and lip balm! You can even order just the drawstring bag by itself to put in soap, jewelry or whatever your heart desires. Also the soap/lip balm bag is at a new lower price this year of only $10! It ships for $2.99 so it’s a really great deal. Order now while supplies last!

Each bag is stamped with a block print I carved by hand.

New Soaps and Huge Sale!


  Christmas started really early this year. I cringed when I realized one day I was singing a Christmas song I had just heard on a Target commercial, the day after Halloween!! I refuse to decorate or do anything before my favorite holiday, Thanksgiving. But after you’ve gorged and napped and eaten cold leftovers out of the […]

The Clean Seed Fall Favorites

These have just the right amount of cider flavor and spice.

Fall is here! Leaves are changing, it’s getting dark earlier, and everything you can possibly fathom now comes in pumpkin spice flavor. That means it’s also time for comfort food! With the cooler weather and rain here in Portland, I’ve started making soups again after a long hot summer. Our house is decorated with gourds and scary movies (the good […]

Fall Soap Updates

Better than waking up to an alarm!

Happy Fall everyone! The leaves are changing and so are my soap scents! This week I am making another batch of my pumpkin spice soap, so look for it on my Etsy shop come October. In the meantime I made a few new batches of some soaps that are not super popular on my Etsy store, […]

Easy Garlic Dill Refrigerator Pickles


This is our first real summer in Portland since last summer consisted of trips to IKEA, yard sales and busting open windows that were painted shut so we could cool down our 92 degree bedroom. Now that we’re settled in and worked our butts off all Spring picking weeds, we have a pretty bad-ass vegetable […]

Buffalo Soy Curl Tacos With Homemade Corn Tortillas


I had never even heard of a soy curl until I moved to Portland. I hit up the Homegrown Smoker Vegan BBQ food cart last summer shortly after we moved here, and got the BBQ Soy curl sandwich. It was life changing to say the least. I immediately bought soy curls at the super cool […]

If you remember my post from a few months ago, you know that I was growing leeks in my garden this winter. Well, out with the old and in with the new! I pulled all the leeks and planted tomatoes, sugar snap peas and lettuce. But now I have about 30 leeks stored in a […]

Where’s The Beef? The Vegan Protein Debate


Hands down the most common question and usually the first thing someone asks me when I tell then I am vegan is, “Where do you get your protein?” I really have a hard time answering this, so I usually just say something along the lines of, “Oh you know, beans, tofu, nuts, and whole grains […]

Light and Creamy Potato Leek Soup

Potatoes and Leeks

It’s officially Spring, which means leeks are in season! And since half of the country is still covered in snow, why not make a creamy potato leek soup to curl up on the couch with? It might ease the pain of hearing Al Roker predict another polar vortex. No promises, though. I love leeks, cousins […]
