Our Organic Hemp Seed Oil is cold-pressed from UK-grown hemp seeds. This means we extract the oil by pressing the hemp seeds under weight, with no heat added, to preserve the all the nutrients. This is 100% organic hemp oil, completely pure and natural and full of goodness.
And within that hemp oil… so many wonderful things.
Hemp seeds are full of the essential fatty acids that are not produced by the body, including omega-6 and omega-3 in the optimal ratio of 3:1. There’s some cheeky omega-9 in there too. Hemp oil actually contains more Omega 3 and 6 than fish oil, so it’s great for vegans or anyone who prefers an alternative to cod liver oil, and is lower in saturated fat than other plant-based oils.
It’s also packed with vitamins A, B, C and E, and carotene (an antioxidant). This means it’s as good for the outside of you as a moisturiser, as it is for the inside of you. It also contains things called phytosterols, phospholipids and minerals including calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, iron, zinc and folate. Chlorophyll gives the oil its light green colour, which has been shown to have antioxidant properties.
How do I use it?
Our oil has a distinctive nutty flavour, perfect on its own infact! You can experiment with adding it to any dish as a flavour enhancer, use it in sauces, dips (houmous, pesto, marinades) and salad dressings, even smoothies! It’s also a great alternative to olive oil, butter and spreads.
You can also take a spoonful or two a day for an easy way to get all the nutritional benefits. The oil is equally wonderful as a moisturiser – its multi-purpose!
To note – Don’t fry with it! Heating the oil above 120°C will affect all the good things inside it. Hence, why the oil is cold-pressed, raw and extra virgin, keep hold of all its nutrients by not adding heat, though great poured over hot meals.
Best stored in the fridge, to ensure all the special nutrients are preserved, its also great to consume cold.
Suitable for vegetarians and vegans. Not suitable for infants under 12 months. They’ll just have to be patient.
