Hemp seed oil is rich, green, unrefined oil that has amazing health properties. It is packaged in a dark green bottle that is glass to stop light penetrating and oxidizing the oil. It is made by organically cold pressing organic hemp seeds at a very low temperature and extracting the rich oil. Cold pressed hemp seed oil is dark in colour and has an earthy, nutty smell. It contains many healthy essential fatty acids including omega 6, omega 9 and omega 3. Many other oils contain these ingredients, but the main difference with hemp seed oil is that it has the best ratio for humans of Omega 6 and Omega 3. The body converts essential fatty acids in different ways, depending on the product and its properties. The unique make up of this amazing oil makes it perfectly compatible with humans, due to the essential fatty acids containing GLA or gamma-linolenic acid.
Hemp oil is like food for the skin. Due to its highly concentrated EFA’s, it enters the lipid barrier of the skin and provides internal nourishment. The good fats found in this oil are absorbed readily into the skin and the body. Hemp seed oil is used as a food supplement in many countries throughout the world due to its highly nutritious essential fatty acid content, but in Australia it is only legal to sell it for external use. We recommend using hemp seed oil for the following
· all over body and face moisturiser
· thick and rich massage oil
· A topical treatment for dry skin, eczema and other skin conditions.
While, this hemp oil is able to be consumed as a food, in Australia the consumption of hemp seed oil is illegal. In most other countries including in Europe, America and Canada it is legal.
