Benefits of Hemp Seed Oil

Photo credit: It's Your Life
I love Hemp seed oil, it is great on veggies, and I love what it does for my skin in my homemade body lotion. First Hemp oil needs to be kept in the fridge, and second do not use it to fry foods as it reduces the health properties. It has been said that you should not use anything on your body you can not eat which makes Hemp oil a big winner. Both beneficial to the external body as well as the internal body.

 The external benefits are as follows:
  • All 20 known amino acids which includes the 9 essential amino acids our bodies can not produce.
  •  Omegas 3, 6 and 9
  • Most balanced, and richest resource of essential oils.
  • The only thing plant that contains vitamin D.
  • Essential fatty acids our bodies do not produce. 
  • A great amount of vitamin E.
 While I can go on about how each of the items mentioned above benefit you I am not. However, what I am going to tell you next is how Hemp seed oil benefits you due to the items listed above.

  • Aids in the relief of premenstrual stress
  • Contains anti-inflammatory properties other oils do not contain.
  • Improves symptoms of eczema.
  • Excellent replacement for fish oil, and safe for pregnant/nursing woman.
  • Can help to prevent the following high blood pressure, heart disease, high cholesterol, cancer, arthritis, and more.
  • Aids in the development and function of the brain, nervous system, and healthy cell membranes.
  • It also increases stamina, speeds healing, increases vitality, promotes calmness, reduces inflammation, diuretic, treats bacterial infections, and more.
  • Great for nails, hair, and skin.
  • Great source of vitamins and nutrients for vegans.
  • I love this it is a natural sun blocker.

Ways to use Hemp seed oil includes in dips, on salads, or any veggie dish, in pesto, homemade body lotions, or facial scrubs. It is said that Hemp seed oil has a nutty taste, but I think it has a unique taste it would not compare to nutty. However I have never tasted it on its own, but just saying.

Because the lipids contained in Hemp seed oil are nearly identical to ours it penetrates and lubricates our skin with no oily feeling, or build up. It also said to aid with skin conditions such as ache, eczema, and psoriasis. The great thing about using Hemp oil on your skin is that it will clog your pores like other oils. Hemp seed oil also helps to even out skin tone, along with detoxifying your skin as well. 

If you make homemade skin products of any type consider adding Hemp seed oil. However, like essential oils you need to add when the product has cooled off.
