Hempseed Oil – Fountain of Youth?


For many centuries hempseed has been used as food and medicine. One of the wonderful properties of hempseed oil is that it is a component in anti-aging, both for skin and cellular health.

Hempseed oil is rich in anti-oxidants and Omega fatty acids. Hempseed has the perfect 3:1 ratio of Omega fatty acids needed by the human body.

Healthy skin cells contain water. As we age, the cell’s ability to retain the water diminishes. Our skin cells also work to use nutrients that keep our skin healthy. One of the functions of the Omega fatty acids is to KEEP our skin nourished. When our skin is not healthy it ends up being dry, saggy, and wrinkly.

The Omega fatty acids in hempseed oil also help with acne, rashes, and other skin conditions by repairing the skin cell structure, feeding the cells with nutrients, and repairing damage from blemishes.

Hempseed oil does not clog pores. It goes beyond the outer skin layer and soaks deep inside where it is needed.

There are many skincare products that have a hempseed oil base; these products will keep the skin nourished, fresh, and young-looking (along with proper diet and plenty of water intake).

So, if you are looking for that fountain of youth – try hempseed oil!

    • If you look on the right sidebar of my blog, you will see a link for Nutiva. That will take you to their site where you will find hempseed oil, hempseeds, and other items. You may also be able to find it in your local food co-op or natural grocery store. If you purchase it locally, you will usually find it in the refrigerated section. Hope this helps!
