high on health
A glorious oil pressed from the seeds of a transcendent plant, nourishing to dry, scaly skin, and the only plant that carries Vitamin D, known for promoting a happy brain chemical, bone and immune health. Step away from the stigma of this plant, scientifically named, Cannabis Sativa and understand that hemp seed oil does not possess the psychoactive THC compound (and even if it did, would it be so bad?!).
Hair, skin, and nail qualities are enhanced, preventing further or new damage to occur. 80% rich with essential fatty acids (EFAs) 3 & 6. EFAs our body can access only by ingesting. This plant with the highest amount of EFAs, contribute anti-inflammatory properties, repair of damaged skin cells, healthy moisture, elasticity, and lubrication without clogging pores.
Essential fatty acids have a fundamental role in the health of our skin. They can be described as the glue that keeps us together, supporting the growth and maintenance of our cells. Skin cells are altered and replaced at a rapid rate and therefore need a constant supply of essential fatty acids to maintain them. When a person becomes deficient in the essential fatty acids symptoms present as dry, scaly skin followed by weak nails and hair.
Do you experience sensitive skin? acne? psoriasis? eczema? rosacea?
free to be soaps are superfatted with unrefined hemp seed oil. After the cook process is finished, and before the cured soap is poured into the mold, unrefined hemp seed oil and avocado oil are added to offer their supreme qualities of deep nourishment for parched skin and purging of dead skill cells.
Apart from essential fatty acids being fundamental for skin cells, EFAs in hemp seed oil influence a number of bodily functions too such as lower blood pressure, decrease blood clotting and cholesterol, lower triglyceride (unfriendly fat) levels. EFAs enhance our immune system and moods,prevent cancer, an ally to healthy brain function, relief of pain, inflammation and stiffness.
So while you’ll enjoy the sublime sensations of free to be soap, I encourage you to add hemp seed oil into your meals by adding it to your smoothie, stir-fry, or salad!
