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!

Love Your Body With Hemp-Enhanced Body Products


Hempseed is one of the finest nutritional products around. Not only is it an excellent food source, it also helps heal and treat health conditions and disease. It simply does wonders for our insides.

However, we can’t forget our ‘outsides’. Hemp-enhanced body care products are on the rise. People are becoming more conscious about what they put on their skin and hair.

The skin is the largest organ on the human body. It is also the ‘gateway’ for absorption of nutrients, as well as chemicals that may be put on the body. The skin sees a lot of rough treatment – harsh soaps, chemicals, abrasives, and environmental exposure (wind, ice, snow, cold, dry heat, sun).

Hemp-enhanced face and body lotions are wonderful. They moisturize the skin; the hemp oil does not sit on top of the skin, but penetrates it, leaving skin soft, smooth, and non-greasy. The Omega 6 and 3 fatty acids in hempseed oil aid in cellular repair and also protect from UV radiation. Omega fatty acids also help replenish the fats lost in the skin, reducing scaliness and dryness, AND helping the skin to look younger and fresher. (I use a hempseed oil-based lotion several times a day, with no greasy feel left on my hands and skin.)

Let’s not forget the hair. Shampoos and conditioners can be quite harsh to the hair. Some are detergents and strip the hair of it’s natural oils. Hemp oil-based shampoo and conditioner leaves hear feeling clean, fresh, silky smooth, and looking and feeling shiny and healthy. The Omega 3 fatty acids in hempseed oil-based hair products penetrate the scalp and moisturize from the inside, reducing dry, flaky skin and adding nutrients to the hair follicles.

I personally use Versativa’s Juice Citrus Flower hemp-enhanced shampoo and conditioner. My scalp is moisturized; my hair feels fresh and clean, and looks healthy and full of body.

Whether you are wanting to treat your hair, or body, or both to some exceptional care, try hempseed oil-based products. Your skin and hair will thank you.
