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?!).

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.

One thought on “high on health

  1. Suffering from eczema and acne I have tried countless products and spent endless money on trying to find something gentle and effective for my sensitive skin. I am very cautious about what I put into my body and I pay the same respect to my skin, seeings how it’s our largest organ! The first time Katie gave me a sample of her soap I was hooked. Not only was it soothing for my skin but after a while my skin started to clear up and I felt like I had a more healthy and radiant glow. You see, not reacting to a soap is a big deal in my books! I love how the ingredients are all natural and how they produces such a nice, creamy lather. I also love how she is consistently playing around with different ingredients and scents giving a variety of options. I always look forward to what she’s cooking up next!

    After a long week of driving and sitting in Toronto traffic going to Katie’s restorative class on a Friday evening was the perfect way to wind down and release emotional and physical stress. Her approach is very calming and soothing and I quite literally felt restored after one session. I go to yoga quite regularly but mainly attend the higher intensity classes. It’s easy to forgot how important it is to not only decompress the body through longer poses but also the mind. Her spiritual guided words really put you in a tranquil state and leaves your mind and heart as ease. I especially love the prolonged savasana! Thank you Katie! <3.
