Nourish your body with hemp seed oil

Hemp Seed Oil is a nourishing and antioxidant rich oil that can be applied topically, as well as taken internally. This multi-tasking oil contains all 10 essential amino acids plus 14 fatty acids including gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), an omega-6 fatty acid that acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory that encourages skin and hair growth and new cell generation while moisturising and nourishing the skin. Here are three ways to incorporate hemp seed oil into your daily routine to nourish your skin, hair and body.


Hemp seed oil contains many beneficial nutrients that help to stimulate hair growth, nourish and moisturise the scalp, improve elasticity and strengthen strands. The ceramides in hemp seed oil help to form a protective barrier that assists in retaining protein and moisture in the hair and scalp while the Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9 fatty acids promote new hair growth.

To Use: There are a number of ways you can apply hemp seed oil to your hair. For a serum, rub a small amount of hemp seed oil to your scalp and hair, leave for 10 minutes before shampooing. For a treatment, add a few drops to your hair conditioner, or make a hair mask with hemp seed oil, apply, leave for 30 minutes and rinse.


Rich in omega fatty acids, hemp seed oil is particularly beneficial for those with acne, eczema, psoriasis, and inflammatory skin conditions. It dissolves stale sebum and drives out grime, dirt and pollution from deep within the pores while its moisturising properties create a protective barrier over the skin to prevent moisture loss. It also moderates oil production, soothes inflammation, contains anti-aging properties and is non-comedogenic which means it doesn’t clog pores.

To Use: For general face and body, either use alone or add a few drops to moisturiser for extra benefits. To nourish cracked heels, dry hands and elbows or reduce the appearance of scars, massage a small amount into the affected area daily until healed. For a complete body treatment, combine hemp seed oil with an exfoliant like raw sugar to make a scrub, and rub all over your body.

Hemp seed oil is one of the best plant-based proteins and contains high-quality nutrients that offer many health benefits. The omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in hemp seed oil helps to lower cholesterol levels and support weight loss by accelerating the body’s metabolic process. These essential fatty acids also improve immunity and regulate intestinal flora.

To Use: Hemp seed oil is not suitable for cooking with heat as it has a low smoke point. Instead, use cold for salad dressings and smoothies. Alternatively, consume 1 to 2 tablespoons of hemp seed oil daily or as recommended by your health professional. Larger doses can be toxic.
