This Hemp Seed Oil, Cannabis sativa, is a carrier oil and comes from the United Kingdom. It is made from the cold pressing of hemp seeds. Carrier oils are also classified as vegetable oils or base oils. This oil makes a great base for adding essential oils to create a massage oil.
Even though its botanical name is Cannabis sativa, this oil has almost no THC. Hemp Seed Oil has a slightly nutty aroma. Extraction is by mechanical expression (pressing) without the use of chemicals, preservatives or additives, and is cold pressed at low temperatures. The oil is then filtered to remove any natural suspended solids”
It is reputed to refresh, revive, and strengthen the skin with its high content of emollients. You can add essential oils such as rosemary, chamomile, and tea tree to this carrier oil to reduce dryness.
We recommend that all carrier oils only be used externally.
