What are the benefits of a hemp oil bath?
Benefits of a hemp oil bath include increased skin hydration, decreased inflammation, and treatment of skin conditions. Hemp oil contains a rich nutrient profile which is easily absorbed into the skin.
Additionally, hemp oil has been found to help strengthen skin to better fight off bacteria, viruses, and fungal infections. Your skin is your largest organ and provides a barrier between you and the world. Taking care of your skin is an essential part of keeping yourself healthy.
Is a hemp oil bath the same as a CBD bath?
A hemp oil bath is not the same as a CBD bath. Hemp oil and CBD oil come from the same Cannabis Sativa plant, but different parts. Because they come from different parts of the plant, they contain different compounds and benefits.
What skin conditions could a hemp oil bath treat?
Many skin conditions are caused by inflammation or an imbalance in oil production. Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) is an Omega-6 fatty acid that is an anti-inflammatory. GLA’s anti-inflammatory properties will decrease inflammation while encouraging cell growth and repair.
An imbalance in oil production can cause excessively oily or excessively dry skin. Neither condition is healthy for your skin. Hemp oil will moderate oil production, leaving you with moisturized skin that is just right.
