Hemp oil is a healthy alternative when cooking
This time of years comes with a wide selection of festive foods, so it can be difficult to maintain a healthy diet.
However, making a few small changes could make your food even tastier and help you stay on the right track this Christmas. Hemp oil has a nutty flavour and can be used to enhance all types of dishes.
What’s good about it
Hemp oil can be used in the place of other cooking oils such as sunflower or olive oil, and thanks to its subtle flavour is thought to bring out the taste of other foods much more.
Chris Kilham, a self-proclaimed medicine hunter, told Fox News that hemp oil also has a number of health benefits.
“Rich in complete protein and an excellent source of healthy oils – including vegetarian omega-3 fatty acids – hemp provides superior nutrition with very good taste,” he explained.
These fatty acids are thought to be beneficial to preventing heart disease and keeping the heart healthy. In addition, hemp protein has a high number of globulins, a protein that helps support the immune system.
Looking after your skin
But hemp oil doesn’t just have a reputation for helping you on the inside, those same fatty acids are really good news for those with skin conditions. Omega-3 and omega-6 is thought to be useful in easing the symptoms of skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and acne.
In addition to this, according to EarthlyBody.com, those who have taken hemp oil regularly report softer skin, smoother and thicker hair and stronger nails.
This is one of the reasons it is commonly found in cosmetics. Teamed with its antioxidant properties, it can cleanse skin and even-out skin tone without drying skin – an important point in the harsh winter months.
As part of a healthy diet, hemp oil could help you look and feel better, even if the weather is doing its worst.

- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi Kianouche, Thank you for your message. I would recommend to mix pomegranate oil with Marula oil for what you are looking to treat. A few drops of antioxidant-rich Marula oil mixed with Pomegranate oil can boost efficacy and help restore your skin’s functions in perfect equilibrium. Long term use may visibly minimise pores, brighten the skin, protect it from the oxidative damage caused by pollution, tones down pigmentation and assists with scar tissue healing. Hope this helps :)
- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi I’ve bought some of your pomegranate oil, together with rosehip and marula oils. Which of the other two oils would be better to mix with pomegranate oil for mature skin with hyperpigmentation due to sun damage and sometimes prone to spots and milia when using rich moisturisers. Also, can I use pomegranate oil by itself or combined with either of the other two oils around my eyes

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Dolores, thank you for your message!Ashwagandha is an adaptogen so will adapt to your own bodies rhythm. It is a powerful way to regulate energy levels through the day so in some people may boost circulation and cell activity, which is why you may find yourself with insomnia. Everyone is unique and different, so will react to herbs and remedies differently. As you are using bio-identical hormones, I would advise you check with your GP, as there are often interferences with herbs. Perhaps you should try taking your Ashwagandha in the morning to regulate your bodies rhythm through the day.
