Every so often I come across the best kind of compliment for essential oil use and I knew I was in the presence of greatness when I read about the omega 3 rich fatty acids found in hemp seed oil. The combination of pure essential oils and organic hemp seed oil has it all, beauty and brains! Meaning nourished skin, reduced inflammation, antioxidants to guard against skin damage, moisture retention and relief of dry, itchy, irritated skin related to eczema. Hemp seed oil is a great source of high-quality nutrients and has a long history as an all-purpose natural remedy. This is important, it contains virtually no THC, the element in cannabis. Essential oil users use carrier oils often for dilution and coverage, I like to use nutrient packed carrier oils.  Solid, organic coconut oil is one of my faves because it adds value to essential oil use with unique properties like lauric acid. The body converts lauric acid into monolaurin, which has antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-protozoa properties.  But solid coconut oil is well....solid and fractionated coconut oil (liquid state) has lost some of solid coconut oil's most prized benefits in the manufacturing process. Hemp Seed Oil is an amazing alternative, packed with nutrition to enhance any roller bottle protocol.
BEAUTY!
  1.  Hemp seed oil supports healthy hair, skin and nails. 2.  Often used as a moisturizer. 3.  Known to reduce dryness and relieve itching and skin irritations from eczema. 4.  Anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, may protect against the aging process, works to keep skin calm.
BRAINS!
  1.  This is awesome!  3:1 ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 fatty acids, a balance shown to support heart health and protect against stroke (find proper daily requirements). 2.  Hemp seed oil is a mercury free choice!  Fish has been our go to source for Omega 3s but now there's a concern for the mercury content found in cold water fish especially for pregnant women. "Results from the present study among a U.S. cohort with moderate fish intake suggest that maternal fish consumption during pregnancy may benefit offspring cognition in infancy but that exposure to higher levels of mercury has adverse effects on child cognition. These findings, based on a relatively small group of women, merit further investigation and verification in other populations consuming moderate amounts of seafood. Meanwhile, we recommend that women continue to consume fish during pregnancy but seek out varieties with lower levels of mercury."  {source} 3.  Moreover, dietary omega-3 fatty acids are certainly involved in the prevention of some aspects of cardiovascular disease (including at the level of cerebral vascularization), and in some neuropsychiatric disorders, particularly depression, as well as in dementia, notably Alzheimer's disease. {source} 4.  Hemp seed also has high levels of vitamins A, C and E and β-carotene, and it is rich in minerals like phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, sulfur and calcium. {source} Skin-Serum All those amazing properties in a carrier oil called Hemp Seed Oil and we haven't added any essential oils yet.  This is my idea of a super sophisticated, super simple, super affordable skin serum! Things get easy from here on out because YOU get to add your favorite essential oils, any single, any blend.  I have a favorite however, everyone loves it and knows how to use it - just Lavender. Lavender is a universally loved essential oil with sophisticated antimicrobial properties.  You can't go wrong with this in your purse, on your desk and in your makeup bag.  Outside of CW Salves, simple serums are so much fun for me to give to friends and family, even strangers.  It's the perfect introduction to the EO Life!

Hemp Seed Oil absorbs very quickly! It’s not oily feeling at all :)

Can this be used as a face moisturizer, or is it too oily?

I ordered hemp oil from Sparks when it was on sale and I absolutely LOVE it. Just one drop to the tops of my hands and then massaged in is so soothing and I can tell the difference in my skin. Definitely ordering more and adding this to my skin care regime.

Do you happen to know how stable the omega3 in the hemp oil is? One of the disadvantages of fish oil, ground flax seed oil and shelled walnuts in the baking aisle is their omega 3 goes rancid quickly. Ground flax seed should be ground just prior to use, walnuts should be bought in the grocery aisle and stored in the fridge or freezer and I’ve read a study (don’t remover where) that many fish oil capsules are actually rancid before we even swallow them and the best flax seed oil is always found refrigerated. I’m anxious to try hemp seed oil – it looks to have many benefits I’m just wondering how to avoid the rancidity issue.
