Hemp Seed Oil – Capsules
* Keep refrigerated
Hemp seed typically contains over 30% oil and about 25% protein, with considerable amounts of vitamins and minerals. Hemp seed oil is over 80% in polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) and is an exceptionally rich source of the two essential fatty acids (Omega 3&6) in the correct balance, which is considered to be optimal for human health. Both of these high-quality storage proteins are easily digested and contain nutritionally significant amounts of all essential amino acids. Hemp seed has been used to treat various disorders for thousands of years in traditional oriental medicine. Recent clinical trials have identified hemp seed oil as a functional food, and animal feeding studies demonstrate the long-standing utility of hemp seed as an important food resource.

We would suggest the following:
- Lavender Essential Oil
- Peppermint Essential Oil
- Frankincense Essential Oil
Massage – Buy a base oil: coconut, sweet almond, grape seed for example. If you have 20ml of base oil, halve the amount twice that gives you the number of drops of Essential Oil to add. In this case, you will add 3 drops of Lavender and 1 drop of Frankincense (if over 5, otherwise add another drop of lavender) and 1 drop of Peppermint (if over 5). Rub the mixture over the back, chest and neck and any other areas as required. Especially after a bath.
Bath – Your skin is the most absorbent part of the body. The heat of the bath assists in the absorption. There are 2 ways to do this:
- Diffusing 3 drops (maximum) of Essential Oils into a teaspoon of milk. Or a cup, if you would like more of a Cleopatra style bath. Use 1 drop of Lavender, 1 drop of Peppermint (only if over 5 years old) and 1 drop of Frankincense (only if over 5 years old) alternatively use Lavender on its own. Add Epsom salts. Add 1 -2 drops for small children.
- Or simply add 5ml of your massage blend.
Close all windows. Soak for 15-20 minutes minimum. Avoid splashing in the eyes.
Diffuser – Add 5 drops into a diffuser. (3 drops of Lavender, 1 drop of Peppermint and 1 drop Frankincense).
** A patch test is required – 1 drop of aromatherapy oil to 4 drops of base oil. Apply a coin size amount to a patch of skin on the inner arm **
If sensitivity occurs, apply more base oil to soothe the area. Possibly avoid use for a further 10 days. If you wish to continue, dilute to ¼ of the original amount and test on a small area of skin. If there is no further reaction, continue with that dosage.
** Oils are for external use only and must be blended with a carrier oil. Always avoid the eyes, ears and nose **
** Peppermint – Avoid use during pregnancy/lactating, or if on homeopathic remedies. Avoid use in children under 5. Use low doses, it’s a very cooling oil and strong. May irritate the skin. It is a stimulant, so do not add to the bath before bed. Safe all around for inhaling **
** Frankincense – Avoid use during pregnancy/lactating, if any bleeding disorders or on anticoagulants. Avoid with children below 5 and caution below 8 **
** Lavender is the safest of oils, if on a rare occasion you react, apply more base oil to the skin to soothe it and dilute the massage blend with more base oil **
