This Plastic Free July we are getting our ethical vibes on a creating many winter skin love DIY recipes...
Brooke our resident queen of organic goodness has created the super popular HEMP SALVE, our most popular winter skin product.
Recently, hemp seed oil has become more popular both as a dietary supplement and a topical application for healthy skin. That is because hemp seed oil contains very high levels of linoleic and alpha-linoleic essential fatty acids. These compounds lubricate and moisturize the skin, and are especially useful in treating the symptoms of eczema, psoriasis, and rashes. Taken internally, hemp seed oil lowers blood cholesterol levels, reduces arterial plaque, and reduces blood pressure.
It seems the old ezcema is back for many too & we are doing our best to get our psorisis shampoo reciepe out there.
Using just the base ingredients, Many of these recipes are adaptable you can add your essential oils and extras like jojoba oil, almond oil, or even replace shea butter for cacoa butter.
We want you to begin your journey of self empowerment and plastic free organic living simply.
