Here’s a little break down of our Hemp Seed Oil. We get a lot of questions about our oil: where it’s from, how it’s made and what it’s good for. There’s a lot to say on that topic, so here’s briefest summary we could make!
What is it?
Hemp Seed Oil is made from Australian hemp seeds. Hemp Seed Oil is rich in omega fats which are critical for mental and physical health. Studies have shown that the omega 6 and omega 3 fatty acids need to be in a ratio of 3:1 (three Omega 6 to every one Omega 3). Hemp Seed Oil has this ideal ratio naturally.
How is it made?
Hemp Seed Oil is made by cold-pressing Australian hemp seeds. It’s important that the seeds are cold-pressed as the omega fats in Hemp Seed Oil are sensitive to heat. The oil is then poured into bottles and those bottles are flushed with nitrogen. A nitrogen flush ensures that no oxygen will remain in the bottle and oxidise the oil.
Hemp Seed Oil and Skin:
Studies have shown that applying Hemp Seed Oil to your skin can improve conditions such as dermatitis, cradle cap, eczema, psoriasis, and acne. Part of the reason hemp is so good for the skin is that it has a comedogenic level of zero . This means that hemp oil will not clog your pores. Clogged pores are particularly undesirable if someone is struggling with acne. By using Hemp Seed Oil, the skin is moisturised without being clogged which is ideal for many skin conditions.
Hemp Seed Oil and Health:
Hemp Seed Oil is high in Omega 3s. As many know, Omega 3s have been shown to be essential for brain health , preventing depression  and improving heart health . Omega 3s also have an anti-inflammatory effect. Researchers speculate that omega 3s decrease depression and improve heart health and cognitive function by reducing inflammation in the body.
