Hemp seed oil has a long history of use in Eastern culture as a multi – purpose remedy. Despite being best known as a drug, the hemp plant yields many useful ingredients – including hemp seed oil (which does not contain any of the psychoactive substances). Hemp seed oil is often used in skincare products that work well for dry or itchy skin. It has a green colour which is similar to that of dark olive oil. This oil is highly nutritious and packed full of minerals, antioxidants and fatty acids. It is lighter than most of other oils, which makes it great for providing hydration without clogging pores. Hemp seed oil also has anti-inflammatory and healing compounds which make it a great addition for any skincare product.
