Hempseed Oil for Eczema
Are you struggling with getting rid of your eczema? Learn how hempseed oil can help calm inflammation and irritation with its skin-loving antioxidants and essential fatty acids!
Eczema is defined as a persistent skin condition that presents as dry, scaly, inflamed patches on the skin, with an intense itch. While an exact cause of eczema is not known, researchers do know that the immune system is involved. Eczema causes the immune system to produce excess inflammation, which contributes to the itchy, red rash. As we have previously discussed, inflammation causes damage to the skin’s barrier function, leading to dehydration and that damage can allow irritants, both chemical and environmental to penetrate the skin’s surface. We do know that under normal circumstances, inflammation is the body’s natural defense reaction, but with eczema inflammation lasts too long within the skin, causing damage. Anyone who suffers from eczema knows that this condition is unpredictable and can be triggered by many unknown factors including stress, environment and chemicals. There are several prescription treatments available, but even these medications only provide temporary relief from symptoms associated with eczema. This is where the benefits of organic, cold-pressed hempseed oil comes in to play.
Hempseed oil is produced from cold pressing the seeds of the Cannabis Sativa plant. Unlike oils produced from the stems or flowers of this plant, the seeds contain no CBD or THC and therefore is safe for all ages. This oil is packed with many skin-loving antioxidants and essential fatty acids including:
- Linoleic and Gamma-Linoleic Acid (GLA), which boosts anti-inflammatory properties; restores skin’s barrier function; soothes and reduces red, scaly patches caused by eczema.
- Omega 3 and Omega 6 Essential Fatty Acids, regulates skin’s inflammatory response; assists with skin healing; prevents dehydration and helps keep skin moisturized.
- Phytosterols, restores and rejuvenates skin by boosting collagen production.
- Vitamin E, antioxidant which protects skin from environmental damage.

Recently, this past January, one of our customers reached out to us at high® to leave this amazing message regarding high expectations FACIAL OIL, “Hello. My 5 years old daughter has severe eczema. She is broke out so bad right now, from head to toe. She has scabs all over her body from scratching, even on her beautiful little face. Last night, I put your facial oil on her face. This morning, the scabs were almost gone and her face was not dry. Tonight, I put the facial oil all over her body. If we have similar results in the morning, who could I contact to maybe purchase the facial oil in a larger size? We have battled her eczema since she was 2 and she will be 6 March. So far, this is the absolute best thing we have tried!”
