Hemp Essential Oil (Cannabis Sativa)
Our Founder Kirsty first encountered Pure Essential Oil of Cannabis Sativa L (Hemp) 20 years ago. She was attending a Thai Massage in the West End of Glasgow and the Therapist was burning the oil in water on a burner. He explained that inhaling it could help release pent up tension physically and emotionally to enhance the benefits of the massage.
‘Hemp Essential Oil has quite bitter aroma on its own, so I started blending it with other sublime Pure Essential Oils to create a wonderful smelling range of All Botanical Aromatherapy Candles, Room Fragrance Diffuser/Pillow Drops, and also Organic Skincare products for sale. We’ve had very positive feedback from clients who’ve found relief from dry, irritated and broken skin conditions by using our Ah There! Body Oil, Our Happie Hippie Body Oil, our Budding Beauty Facial Serum and our The Smoothie Beard + Facial Serum, with many even saying it’s healing scars.’ Says Kirsty.
We make no therapeutic claims in regard to our products, and any benefits as reported by our customers may be in part due to the synergistic effect of combining this sublime Pure Essential Oil with other Pure Essential Oils and indeed other ingredients.
Hemp Pure Essential Oil contains only trace amounts of THC – the stuff that makes you high and is perfectly legal in the UK today for use and incorporation in room fragrancing and skincare products providing other legislation is observed. Please NOTE however that many Hemp derived products are NOT legal in all countries and the individual is responsible for ensuring he/she complies with local legislation.

The Pure Essential Oil of Cannabis Sativa L which we use is Wild Crafted in pristine Normandy, France. We have a very long term relationship with our trusted supplier, and traceability is very important to us as many hemp derived products are finding their way into the country and being found to be adulterated. The oil that we use is high in CBD relative to many others on the market, however the percentage of this as a constituent relative to the whole product is still very low. The Terpenes contained in significantly higher proportion in the Cannabis (Hemp) essential oil that we use such as Myrcene, Terpinolene and Beta Carophyllene for instance may be just as significant in the way they might help than CBD. The media attention over CBD is neglecting the documented potential of other important compounds in the plant.

Hemp, not to be confused with marijuana, is an annual herbaceous plant that has been cultivated for eons to capture its diverse uses and benefits. Hemp essential oil is not meant to be taken internally, but blended into carrier oils – perhaps with other essential oils – to produce a soothing blend for the skin, muscles and all types of massage. This essential oil is not intoxicating (those compounds are not bioavailable in distillation), but quite special nonetheless. Its major components consist of monoterpenes and some sesquiterpenes, typically found in many aromatic plants. Laboratory analysis shows that it shares chemistry with many commonly used essential oils such as citrus, pine and basil.
The stresses and strains of over-exertion, old age and simple wear-and-tear often respond favorably to the essential oil of this complex and often misunderstood botanical. It is also supportive of various mild skin conditions, imparting a lustrous glow and radiance when rubbed in gently (blended into a carrier oil). A stream of lotions, salves, balms and massage oils containing extracts of Hemp oil are gaining new fans worldwide as the time-honored benefits of this herbal oil spread.
