It’s no secret that a gentle massage has the power to soothe and heal, and is even able to provide deep relaxation, and reduce pain and anxiety. When combined with some hemp seed oil, this practice can promote respite from the stresses of everyday life.

What Is Hemp Oil?
Extracted from the seeds of the hemp plant, it is usually produced only from industrial hemp, a varietal cultivated specifically for industrial production. Because of this, hemp oil has almost no psychoactive substances.

What Does It Look, Smell & Taste Like?
Cold pressed oil which has not been refined has a rich, nutty flavor and a green tint, but it turns colorless after being refined, and has almost no flavor.

How & Why Should I Use It?
You can either massage it gently into the skin for treating conditions like cracked, dry skin, or you could blend it into body oils, body creams, or your bath gel. When taken as a dietary supplement, its high concentrations of essential fatty acids are good for health. This herbal, natural oil has minimal side effects, which is why massaging it on to your body will result in healthier, smoother skin and will de-stress the mind. It can even help to prevent skin disorders like psoriasis, eczema, acne and dry skin.

Please Note: Since unrefined hemp oil has a short shelf life, store it in a dark container to prevent it from going rancid, and always purchase it in small amounts.
