Hemp seeds are widely considered to be a “superfood” due to their high amounts of healthy fats and essential fatty acids. So, what are the best ways to incorporate hemp seeds into your daily routine?
From hemp seed oil to pet spray and nourishing body bars, keep reading for 5 amazing hemp seed products we love (and exactly how to use them!).
Hulled hemp seeds
Hemp seeds are produced directly from the hemp plant. They are a fantastic source of protein and fibre, and contain high amounts of vitamin E, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, calcium, iron, zinc and essential fatty acids.
Try adding a teaspoon of hulled hemp seeds into your daily diet to reap their benefits.
You can enjoy hemp seeds:
- Mixed into a bowl of oatmeal
- Added to smoothies or energy balls
- Sprinkled over salads, yoghurt, veggies or pasta
- Toasted as a snack
- Mixed with breadcrumbs to coat chicken or fish
- Blended with water to create hemp milk
Hemp seed oil
Hemp seed oil is created by cold-pressing hemp seeds. It has a pleasant, mild and nutty flavour, and can be used as a direct substitute for olive oil in your cooking. Try drizzling it over roast veggies, or creating your own healthy salad dressing.
Along with incorporating hemp seed oil into your diet, this nutrient-rich oil is also an excellent addition to your skincare routine! Hemp seed oil won’t clog your pores or congest your skin - instead, it’s thought to protect the skin from inflammation, assist with healing scarring and acne, and even reduce signs of ageing like fine lines and wrinkles. Simply massage gently into the skin to keep it nourished, plump and healthy. We recommend doing a patch test first.
Hemp pet spray
Did you know hemp seed oil is also thought to benefit animals, too? Hemp pet spray is packed with Omegas 3,6 and 9, and can be used on pets such as dogs, cats, horses, guinea pigs and rabbits. This natural, THC-free spray is thought to assist with mobility, skin, coat, teeth, nails, eyes, anxiety and mood. Simply spray 5 times on your pet’s food daily, or apply topically on skin irritations and minor sores to assist with healing.
Hemp seed oil capsules
If you’re looking for a simple way to add hemp seed to your diet, hemp seed oil capsules offer the perfect solution. These soft gel capsules are easy to digest and can be taken conveniently on the go. Not advised for children under 5 due to choking hazard. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding or have health concerns, please consult your medical practitioner prior to use.
