Hemp oil more than just got a good oil to take internally.
What is hemp oil?
Hemp seed oil is made from the seeds of the Cannabis Sativa plant.Contrary to popular belief the seeds do not contain any CBD (which means you can’t get high because it contains no tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and little to none CBD.) The seeds are a powerhouse of nutrition
Hemp oil has to be one of the most nutrient dense of all oils, loaded with calcium, magnesium, copper, potassium, 10 amino acids, iron, zinc, Vitamins A, B1, B3, B5, B9, D, E, phytosterols, phospholipids and contains omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids in a ratio of 3:1, this is the ideal ratio. It’s an exceptional addition to all diets.
Topically and internally it reduces inflammation, hydrates, regulates oil production, regulates the release or neurotransmitters, its a potent antibacterial, the linoelic acid and oleic acids can help clear belmishes, regulates secretion of digestive juices and so much more. This all translates to

Hemp Oil and Skin
Today though I want to focus on the benefits of applying hemp oil topically.It’s known as a non-comodogenic, which means that it won’t clog your skin pores, and it’s a humectant which means it draws moisture to the skin.
How to Use It topically
Used as a moisturiser on the face and the body. It’s especially beneficial for acne sufferers.Not only does it help balance out oil production, but it’s calming, and the omega 3 properties can soothe inflamed skin.Use it to replace your night cream, after cleansing your face, rub it into your skin.Use it to remove makeup, simply massage into skin, then wipe off using a damp cloth.
Hair and Scalp health
Massage into hair and scalp- reduces dandruff and flakingUse it as a hair conditioner-massage into the scalp before washing hair and leave for 10 mins then shampoo hair as normal
Massage into both fingernails and toenails, it will strengthen the nail and help heal cuticles.
