Hemp’s Got Super Powers!

If you’ve been looking for a new favorite product that’s hip, trending, and best of all, hydrating, think Hemp. Hemp is one of the oldest cultivated plants in human history! Long sought after for its fabulous fiber– used for rope and fabric, the oil expressed from the seeds of the Hemp plant is an amazing ingredient for cosmetics and body care. Hemp Seed Oil is a natural moisturizer, helping your skin feel smooth and soft while acting as a barrier in preventing moisture loss.The USDA Certified Organic Refined Hemp Oil we use at Essential is a dark clear green with a natural grassy, nutty scent. Hemp oil is super hydrating and nourishing, and full of nutrients your skin will love.

Hemp Oil is Rich in Fatty Acids and Vitamins

Hemp Seed Oil a terrific addition to various cosmetics including skin creams, shampoos, shaving cream, lip balms, and massage oils. Hemp Oil is full of Omega-6 and Omega-3 essential fatty acids, including gamma-linolenic acid, an important Omega-6 for skin. A powerful combination of essential fatty acids, this oil, is so useful for promoting skin health and improving dry skin.  Hemp is also rich in Vitamin D to help achieve soft, smooth, and hydrated skin. 

With Hemp Seed Oil being reported to have a comedogenic rating of 0, it will contribute to balancing out excess sebum making it a fabulous choice for people with chaotic skin, as well as those with mature or dry skin.  

Hemp Oil is Perfect for Cleansing

Using this oil as an oil cleanser is amazing as it contains a perfect ratio of EFA’s (containing 57% Linoleic acid!) thusly helping the skin to soften and nourished. To use this oil as a cleanser, wet your face and neck with tepid water and pour an inch squared worth of hemp oil into the palm of your hand. Massage into your skin in gentle upward circular motions. Just rinse off the oil with warm water or simply wipe off with soft 100% cotton cloth or cotton square. If you wear makeup, you might want to cleanse in this way twice. Once rinsing off for the final time, pat your face dry. You can use Hemp Oil as an oil moisturizer too. Hemp soaks beautifully into the skin and doesn’t leave an oily residue, but give it about 5 minutes to soak in. Unlike other oils that simply coat the skin, Hemp Seed Oil’s penetrative properties will dry naturally while locking in moisture and improving skin’s quality.

These Hemp Oil Body Care concepts are easy to implement, good for men, women, teens and of course, mature adults. Incorporate them into your spa offerings or whip up a fresh batch idea card for festival seasons to show your customers how Hemp Oil can be their go-to beauty product.

Hemp Seed Oil Certified Organic  for Shiny Hair

 Liven up dull, brittle hair, add a few teaspoons of Hemp Seed Oil to shampoo. The oil moisturizes and improves the hair’s elasticity, resulting in shiny, healthy hair. Massaging into the scalp will help alleviate dryness.

Rub Hemp Seed Oil into the palms of your hands to warm it up and then use it instead of body lotion. Softening!

Hemp Seed Oil Certified Organic for Relaxing Bath
 An excellent choice for a powerful relaxing bath while allowing your body and mind to unwind. Create a simple bath with Hemp Seed Oil by adding ¼ cup of Epsom salts, to ¼ cup of Hemp Seed Oil into a warm bath. For added aromatherapy benefits, include a few drops of your favorite essential oils.

Hemp Seed Oil Certified Organic for a Paste Deodorant

 Add 4oz of Hemp Oil to 4oz of sodium bicarbonate. Mix well together and then add 40-60 drops of Essential Oils. Put the mixture into jars for fingertip deodorant application.

Hemp Seed Butter as a Hair Conditioner

This butter can be used as both an ingredient in skin and hair care, or straight as is. I love the Hemp Seed Butter massaged straight into my hair overnight. I wash it out the next morning. Luscious!

Hemp Seed Butter for a Body or Hair Balm

Soften a cup of Hemp Seed Butter and add 18 drops of your choice of Essential Oils. With a regular mixer or hand mixer, beat the butter and oil until they are whipped and fluffy. Divine!

Hemp Seed Butter for a Body Polish 

Moisturize while getting rid of those dead skin cells by adding ¼ cup hemp seed oil to ¾ cup Turbinado Sugar and/or Atlantic Fine Sea Salts.

Creating Hemp Oil Body Care Products

Hemp Oil is a terrific carrier oil and can easily replace Grape Seed Oil, Avocado Oil, or Organic Olive Oil, or your any other carrier oil. When adding Hemp Butter to you products, we recommend the following percentages:

  • Lotions & Creams: 3 – 5 %
  • Hair & Body Washes: 2 – 5 %
  • Balms: 5 – 100 % 
  • Bar Soaps: 3 – 6 % 
  • Hair Conditioners: 2 – 5 %

You can begin your Hemp Oil Body Care line with a lovely Hemp Lotion as a base. It’s simply delicious on the skin and is easily customized by adding your favorite Essential Oils and blending well.  Or bottle up some Hemp Oil and sell with idea cards and EO blends customers can mix at home.

PS – Just in case you’re wondering, Hemp Oil is Legal

Hemp Oil does not have psychoactivity because during the manufacturing process any psychoactive compounds are removed. The strains of hemp seed that are grown and used for oil production have a very low resin content to begin with, and once they go through the manufacturing process and are washed and pressed, the final product or resin is free of any psychoactive compounds or tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
