We obtain every drop by cold-pressing fresh hemp seeds. During each step of the process we take great care to protect the fragile EFAs (Essential Fatty Acids) that make the oil so beneficial for health. Omega 6& 3 are the two fatty acids that are essential for life. Like vitamins, these essential fatty acids can't be produced by the body, which is why we must get them from the food we eat.
Hemp seed oil is the only oil to fulfill this profile as it contains the magic ratio of 3:1 Omega 6 to Omega 3 fatty acids. This represents best possible combination for the body’s needs. Hemp also contains substantial amounts of Gamma-Linoleic Acid, and is the only edible seed to do so. This makes it particularly beneficial as an alternative to other sources of GLA (such as borage or evening primrose oil) in treating conditions such as neurodermatitis, eczema and acne.
The deliciously subtle, nutty flavour of our HempOil makes it the ideal gourmet accompaniment to a wide range of dishes. Our light spectrum-filtering violet bottles and air-free bottling process protects this goodness in the oil, which can be destroyed by heat, light and contact with the air.
