Why I love Hemp Oil & How it's extracted
Why I Love Hemp Oil
The hemp plant is simply incredible and can be utilised in thousands of ways. Mount Purious. Hemp Oil is just one of those awesome benefits, the oil is extracted from the plant using a cold pressed extraction process which ensures the the essential fatty acids in the plant are retained. It's these essential fatty acids our bodies need and the number one reason why organic hemp oil is so incredible at moisturising dry skin and helping the skin to repair itself. Like 1/3 people on the UK i have sensitive skin and suffer with occasional outbreaks of eczema, the hemp oil instantly soothes the sore area and provides time for the skin to repair itself.
For anyone who suffers with the much worse psoriasis I can not recommend Hemp Oil enough, it is no cure but it will help. If your looking for a milder alternative which provides long term moisturisation qualities take a look my Starflower Oil Body Moisturiser which has a milder aroma and is also my best seller for mature and very dry skin. :)

Our Hemp and the Extraction Process
Our Hemp Oil is grown in Canada by certified organic farmers who refrain from using any pesticides or insecticides, they extract the oil using a cold pressed process. This unadulterated oil is dark green in colour and has a slightly earthy smell. Mount Purious Hemp Oil Body Moisturiser is produced from Hemp Oil which is extracted through the cold press of hemp seeds, and should not be confused with hash oil which is extracted from cannabis seeds and contains THC, known for it's 'medicinal' properties.
