I’ve already written about my love of hemp oil as a face cleanser, but what I haven’t told you is how much I adore shelled hemp seeds. I am one of those unfortunate people that suffers from excema and virtually all nuts and seeds are off limits. BUT I can eat coconut, which technically isn’t a nut, and I can eat HEMP seeds. I buy the Manitoba Harvest brand in a large orange bag at my local Costco and add a little bit to at least one of my daily smoothies. Nutiva is another brand that has an excellent product. I’ve tried the seeds and the oil from both companies and am equally pleased with each. For me the choice to use either is only a matter of convenience, or which product shows up first on a search.
I’ve been alternating my face washing between the hemp oil and the richer, heavier avocado oil lately, and with all the healthy smoothies I have been enjoying the last couple weeks fixing my body from the inside out, I am truly pleased with my skin. I went to work today without any cover up or foundation makeup today for the first time in many years. That’s AWE-mazing too.
