Ramp Up Your Natural Skincare Routine With This Unlikely Plant:

This plant is often confused with its counterpart but this unique variety of the Cannabis sativa plant has actually been utilized industrially for thousands of years. In fact, hemp was one of the first plants to be spun into usable fibers around 10,000 years ago; today, it has a variety of commercial uses- such as: paper, textiles, clothing [fabrics, such as silk & cotton], insulation, fuel, rope, food, and even feed for animals! Hemp oil can even be used for oil-based paints, in cooking, and for skincare & personal care items. However, the legality of this plant does vary greatly between counties and it is heavily regulated; many governments choose to allow the plant to be grown with limitations, such as being bred with a low content of the psychoactive components that can be present. In regards to its nutritional value, hemp offers up a high source of Vitamin B, zinc, iron, phosphorus, and magnesium. Hempseeds also offer up a high content  of essential fatty acids. There's also a long-standing history of the plant's usage and it's quite possibly one of the earliest plants to be cultivated; the ancient Japanese [around 8,000 BC], Chinese, and Greeks used hemp for clothing, rope, and paper. It arrived here in the U.S. when the Spaniards brought the plant to the Western Hemisphere in the mid-1500's and by the late 1700's, Americans grew hemp as a cash crop for rope and fabric. In fact, George Washington grew the crop for industrial purposes when the plant was at its height in demand during the Civil War. So how exactly does hemp bring one skincare benefits? There are several: for starters, hemp oil can provide hydration & strength for your hair, skin, and nails- in addition to helping super dry & cracked hands and feet! Want to sooth and reduce the inflammation associated with atopic dermatitis and eczema? Hemp oil can help with both symptoms of these skin conditions and it's great for those with psoriasis as well. Plus, with a high content of antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins, hemp can aid in reducing those pesky signs of aging- like fine lines and wrinkles. It can also reduce the appearance of scars and sun spots & other skin discoloration. Want to get the lowdown on some fab skincare products containing hemp?
