I first discovered hempseed oil when my sweet, rescued dog was suffering from...poor guy...getting old. He had arthritis, and was such a charmer who was losing his game. He was a cool dog, but arthritis was messing with his participation in life, and I read it was helpful for joints. So, I bought pure hempseed oil and put about a tablespoon in each meal. Inside of a week he was bounding again into the car for trips to the park, and it amazed me! I felt like it took years off of him!
I started to try it myself, mostly on popcorn with sea salt. It's pretty nutty flavored, and it made my skin feel better pretty quickly.
During COVID, I started the ibodycare line of massage and body moisturizers, and one of the first products I chose was a hempseed blend. This oil is rich with benefits, but the pure form is a strong smell. It lends itself perfectly as a blend. Let me tell you more about hempseed oil.
Here are the prime 4 reasons to try our hemp seed oil offerings:
1. ALLEVIATES INFLAMMATION
One of the chief advantages of hemp seed oil is its potential to calm and renew fatigued, distressed skin. Hemp seed oil decreases inflammation and skin irritations, and delivers comfort for some skin conditions. It is often suggested by dermatologists as an alternate natural solution for acne, eczema, psoriasis and atopic dermatitis, becauseit supports the growth of brand new skin cells.
2. ERADICATES DRYNESS
Hemp seed oil is a dry skin champion! It renews and feeds dried-out skin and helps it resist itchiness, flaking and wrinkling. When applied on the face, it helps control the production of oils, moisturizing but not clogging pores. Hemp seed oil promotes healthy skin by restoring the skin barrier, helping skin retain the all important moisture layer that leaves you looking hydrated, healthy and dewey.
3. SUPPORTS ANTI-AGING GOALS
Younger skin has arrived! Hemp seed oil is abundant in antioxidants – such as vitamin A, C, E, and fatty acids. These reinforce the outer layer of skin so it can maintain moisture, reducing fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of aging, while promoting firmness and skin health.
4. FIGHTS FREE RADICALS AND STRESS
Hemp seed oil is an advantageous skincare ingredient that can prevent free radical damage, protect against environmental aggressors, and relieve stress. It can restore the skin's barrier and shield it from harmful toxins. Hemp seed oil also helps reduce anxiety and provides a calming scent to bring comfort and relaxation at the end of the day. Our Luxury Organic Bath, Body and Massage Oil is an excellent way to experience the benefits of hemp seed oil for yourself.
