Description: Hempseed Carrier Oil is high in Omega fatty acids and proteins. It is a fantastic cosmetic grade oil due to its nutrients, though the illegal Cannabis association tends to reduce its popularity. It is currently being more readily explored by progressive manufacturers.
Color: Light olive green to medium olive green liquid.
Aromatic Description: Being unrefined, Hempseed Oil has been left in its virgin state after pressing. This oil has not been run through filters or any other processes, so stronger colors and fragrances should be expected. This is completely natural.
Common Uses: Hempseed Carrier Oil is becoming a popular manufacturing oil, though only through pioneers in the cosmetic field. This oil reduces visible signs of aging while replenishing and protecting the skin’s moisture barrier and improving the texture of skin.
Consistency: Typical and Characteristic of Carrier Oils.
Absorption: Absorbs into skin at average speed, slight oil feeling left on skin.
Shelf Life: Users can expect a shelf life of up to 2 years with proper storage conditions (cool, out of direct sunlight). Refrigeration after opening is recommended. Please refer to the Certificate of Analysis for current Best Before Date.
Cautions: None Known.
Storage: It is recommended that cold-pressed carrier oils be kept in a cool, dark place to maintain freshness and achieve maximum shelf life. If refrigerated, bring to room temperature before using.

Rating: I'm very happy with the quality of this oil. It has a nice green color with a musky scent. Not crazy about the smell but that can't be helped.
I use it in a blend for facial massage. It absorbs into the skin quite quickly. I also use it in a nerve pain blend for my son who is paralyzed. It works wonders, he says, although the essential oil added contributes, as well.
I like it so well that when I saw it on sale, I had to order another bottle.

Rating: This oil is perfect for my rollerballs. It doesn't take away from the essential oil's scent at all. It works amazing for wrinkles!

Rating: Amazing, it's the very first oil I've ever tried neat on my faced and loved it! This unrefined version has a dark green color, and very strong, herb-like smell that may not be for everyone. I find it hard to mask, but it blends well with citrus EO's.
Lovely feel, great in face serums.
Rating: This is one of my new favorite oils! It is super rich and is an amazing addition to my beard and hair products!

Rating: Too say I'm stunned with the results of this oil is an understatement!!! For 20 years I have been enjoying the health benefits of eating hemp hearts - considered a whole food as it contains all 20 amino acids. After reading the stellar reviews about this oil I just had to try it. I use it neat on my face underneath my homemade night cream. I ordered this on June 30 and have been using it every night since. I did notice it made my face very, very soft but didn't really notice anything else. But today I was plucking my eyebrows in a magnified, lighted mirror and suddenly noticed my nose. Since the age of 12 my nose has been COVERED in blackheads (I'll be 47 this year) and I have tried everything under the sun to solve the problem and nothing worked. To my absolute amazement, I noticed today that 80% of them are GONE!!! I honestly looked in that mirror for a good 5 mins studying every aspect of my nose and just couldn't get over it. NDA please don't ever stop carrying this oil...I will be buying it until the end of time! THANK YOU :)
Rating: This is an exceptionally lovely oil for cosmetics due to its soft, moisturizing, cleansing effects. It has a slight musky herbaceous odour (neutral in CP soap, plesant in lotions or used with other oils, EO overpowers it) and a nice green colour (faint but lasting in CP soap and anything else it's used in at a higher percentage) which add to its individuality and a reminder of its raw properties. Importantly, this is a Canadian product. We cannot grow and produce many of the plant products used in cosmetics in our climate, but why not use the excellent ones we can?! ND offers us a very quality product, and I can't wait until more Canadian products are available. :)

Rating: I absolutely love this oil. I use it in balms, as a moisturizer and I keep a small bottle premixed with other oils (with this being one whole of a third of the bottle) for my cleansing. (The OCM) It works very well with all of my beauty products. It absorbs quickly into the skin, its deep earthy smell is relaxing and it leaves nothing but softness. This is my favorite carrier oil, by far!

Rating: Canadian Hemp Seed oil, does it get any better..awesome for use in Hemp Body Butter, under-rated, under-valued therapeutic oil. Good on ND for carrying such a quality affordable oil.

Rating: I've been using this oil in lotions and in cold process soaps. It has a strong smell for a carrier oil, but doesn't carry through much. The texture is heavy and is great in my massage lotion as it takes a bit to soak in and gives glide without too much slip. I also use it in a shaving soap and people like the moisturizing properties.

Rating: Deep forest green and earthy/green smell denotes this particular oil. I love it. Its nourishing qualities is also undeniable. It does take slight than usual time to absorb the oil, but you can almost hear the skin thanking you for this nourishing oil. Too bad it is not the most stable oil available, it is a great oil!
Rating: Nice, definitely unrefined, oil. Very dark in color. Looks black in the bottle. This is a good thing! Most definitely has a marijuana Mary smell to it. Not *that* heavy, but it's there. I like the smell. Nice and earthy, deep. Have used it on my face tonight to see how well it works just overnight. Will definitely be using quite a bit of this. Glad I ordered a fair bit.

Rating: I am thrilled with this wholesome oil, and using it to enrich my massage oil blends and soaps.
Think: Dirty Hippie Soap with hemp and patchouli - yum!
By:Tracey, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Jan-2007
Rating: I like using this.. Works great in soaps and in lotion. Very soothing. The scent isn't too bad, a bit of lawn grass mixed with cannibas smell. I don't find it offensive or overwhelming. Very healing.

By:Kate, Hamilton, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 01-Mar-2006
Rating: I LOVE this oil! Hemp is a great oil that doesn't get the recognition it deserves. I use this to make my hemp soap and people LOVE it!! I also use this for hot oil hair treatments and on my daughter's skin after a sun burn. It's a very nourishing, healing oil imo.
