Hemp Seed Oil
Hemp Seed Oil is great for maintaining and restoring skin health. It alleviates skin problems, such as dryness and those related to the aging process. A recent clinical study with topically applied Hemp Seed Oil has demonstrated its usefulness in healing mucosal skin wounds after eye, nose and throat surgery.
Hemp Seed has been used to treat various disorders for thousands of years in traditional oriental medicine. Hemp Seed Oil is a rich source of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA; omega‐6 and omega‐3), amino acids, vitamins and minerals.
Lemongrass and Eucalyptus
Lemongrass and Eucalyptus have many mental and physical health benefits and healing properties. Mentally, they act as an antidepressant and mild sedative. Physically, they are analgesic, antimicrobial and anti-pyretic, acting to reduce pain, infection, and fever.
Lemongrass oil is antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, nervine and antibacterial. A 2013 study demonstrated the anti-cancer properties of Lemongrass oil on human cancer cells.
A 2007 study showed that Lemongrass oil has antibacterial activity as strong as traditional antibiotic therapies like Clindamycin, Erythromycin, and Tetracycline.
A 2017 study reports Lemongrass oil is beneficial in treating inflammatory conditions of the skin. Lemongrass oil was powerful enough to impact genes responsible for inflammatory processes, reducing inflammation in human skin cells.
Eucalyptus oil is antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, nervine and antibacterial, having been used to treat several metabolic and infectious diseases. It is effective for treating wounds, cuts, burns, herpes, lice, insect repellent and insect bites as well as rheumatoid arthritis, muscle and joint pains and aches. Eucalyptus oil is a popular anti-viral remedy used for viral infections, such as cold sores, fever blisters, chickenpox, herpes, shingles, and canker sores. Eucalyptus oil beneficially impacts the nervous system by reducing neuralgia and headaches.
