The increase in the consumption of vegetable oils is mainly led by seed oils, including grapeseed oil and hemp oil, which we will talk about in this article. More and more of these oils are being added to the shopping basket compared to olive oil. We will tell you about it below.
Its fundamental properties
The answer to this question is given by its main characteristics. Hemp oil, like most seed oils, is highly nutritious. But not only that, it also has various uses in cosmetics and medicine. This is mainly due to its skin care properties, thanks to its moisturising effect it helps against inflammation and ageing. In addition, it is good for acne and dry skin. Surprising, isn’t it?
On the other hand, thanks to its Omega 3 content, it is beneficial both at the cardiovascular and cerebral level, helping to reduce the risk of heart attacks and the effects of blood clotting.
How to introduce hemp oil in our daily life?
- Use it as an ingredient in your dishes. This is the most common way of consuming it, since, like any other oil, it adds flavour to food. In particular, it has a flavour similar to walnut and seed oils such as sunflower oil, which is why it is recommended to use it as a seasoning in dishes with vegetables and nuts. Try it in a summer salad with seasonal fruit and assorted nuts or in a sautéed grilled vegetable stir-fry as a finishing touch when serving. You’ll love it. It is also healthier than other oils of its kind.
- It is also perfect for the skin as a moisturiser or cleanser. In this way, we will benefit from its properties directly. You may even already be using this method as this oil is found in many of the soaps and fabric softeners used for personal care.
