How To Use Hemp Seed Oil With Other Essential Oils
You’ve probably heard of Hemp oil and the magical health benefits it brings. However, many people don’t realize the oil’s therapeutic properties, and thus consider it a narcotic, which in turn reduces its fame.

Hemp seed oil is the way to go! Here are some of the best ways to incorporate hemp oil with your favorite essential oils.
Benefits of Blending Hemp Oil With Essential Oils
Take a look:
1. Body Massage Oil
Biochemically, Hemp oil contains a vast amount of proteins and essential fatty acids which are quite similar to the skin’s lipids. During a massage, the essential oils are hastily absorbed through the skin surface.
Once in the body, the oil will then play a significant role in reducing skin aging while ensuring that it stays hydrated.
2. Prevention of skin infections
Hemp seed is also rich in essential fatty acids – omega-3 and omega-6, gamma-linolenic acid(GLA) and alpha-linolenic acid. You don’t need to know what each one does, but you should know that your body craves all of them.
When mixed with essential oils such as rosemary, lavender, and tea tree oil, these compounds ensure that there is a continuous regeneration of skin cells and maintenance of the skin’s wellness. Moreover, including hemp seed oil in your diet ensures that your skin maintains important nutrients.

The essential oils in hemp oil can help reduce inflammation. You can mix the oil with other essential oils such as rosemary, chamomile, and tea tree to reduce dryness, itching and overall symptoms of eczema. Apply it topically to enhance its functioning.
Psoriasis – Red, Itchy and Scaly patches on the skin
Typically, Psoriasis is aggravated by a deficiency of vitamin D, essential fatty acids, and minerals. Hemp oil can be used to nourish and moisturize the affected area. Mixing it with certain essential oils such as chamomile, lavender and tea tree will produce the best results.
Hemp seed oil is not damaging to the skin and can safety be used on the skin without causing any problems. It can be used to help clear up acne and reduce stubborn scars that are unresponsive to other gels, creams, or ointments.
It’s completely absorbed into the skin shortly after application and will leave your skin smooth and hydrated. Mixing the oil with tea tree oil, already highly popular in skin care and cosmetic products, can produce incredible results.
Hemp oil is perfect in relieving skin inflammations, but when used along with other popular essential oils, its effectiveness increases even further. You can apply it to your skin in a massaging manner to alleviate the inflammations and muscular pain. For a relaxing massage-like sensation, mix it with essential oils such as peppermint, eucalyptus, black pepper, and clove before applying it to the affected area.
3. Hemp essential oil Aromatherapy
Using Hemp oil with other essential oils is a common and highly beneficial practice in aromatherapy. The aromatherapy properties associated with hemp seed oil include; calming, relaxing and uplifting.
You might not know it, but most home fresheners are already blended with hemp oil to enhance these emotions! Additionally, you can add the oil in an aromatherapy oil diffuser to produce a sweet flowery scent.
4. Therapeutic applications
The balanced ratio of essential fatty oils in hemp oil can help keep your heart in excellent condition. It promotes healthy cardiovascular function and better performance of the immune system, all while improving blood circulation. Certain mixtures can also strengthen your hair and nails.
It is clear that hemp seed oil mixed with other organic essential oils can be used to achieve various body health benefits. What is even more impressive is that both essential oils and hemp seed oil are readily available and affordable. You might even have some already at home.
The bottom line
Using hemp seed oil as a carrier oil with other essential oils is not only safe but also healthy. Most people overlook carrier oils because they lack the therapeutic components of the other essential oils, but they are actually the best medium for both application and dilution.
The volatile nature of essential oils makes them evaporate rapidly while maintaining the natural smell of the plant. Additionally, hempseed oil doesn’t have an overpowering aroma or low combustion point, making it a perfect partner for diluting the essential oils.
