Cooking with HEMP

Cooking with HEMP

We LOVE cooking with hemp...whether it's hemp seed, hemp oil, hemp flour...hemp makes a great addition to many dishes! Not only do hemp seeds contain a generous amount of essential Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids, they also contain gamma-linolenic acid, which supports the normal function and growth of cells, nerves, muscles, and organs throughout your body.

Sometimes adding a slightly nutty flavor, hemps seeds are about 25 percent protein and also provide nutrients including vitamin E, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron, and zinc....say hello to ENERGY, GOOD SKIN, HEALTHY HEARTS, GOOD DIGESTION and MORE when you add hemp to your diet!

The following are a few of our favorite recipes that include hemp. Enjoy!

The Benefits of Hemp Seed Oil

It's no secret that hemp seed oil is a versatile and therapeutic oil when it comes to skin care, which is why we make it one of the prime ingredients in our soaps!

Let's take a look at a few benefits of hemp seed oil and skin care...

*Anti-Aging

Rich in the same essential fatty acids that's present in skin lipids, hemp seed oil improves moisture and elasticity to the skin by lubricating beneath the surface. Unlike other oils that simply coat the skin, hemp seed oil's penetrative properties dry naturally while locking in moisture and improving skin's quality.

Problem Skin

Good news for eczema sufferers. Hemp seed oil has anti-inflammatory properties that are perfect for those with sensitive skin, eczema or rosacea. This 2005 study reported that hemp seed oil used on eczema sufferers gradually improved their skin for dryness and itchiness, thanks to an increase of polyunsaturated fatty acids. The acids also help to reduce redness and irritation associated with acne and rosacea.*
