Organic Pure Hemp Essential Oil

by Alanna Hinds


Although briefly forgotten, organic pure hemp essential oil (also called cannabis essential oil), used by ancient civilizations in steam baths, rituals, and spiritual meditation provides a therapeutic aroma that enhances both emotional and mental well-being that is still beneficial for the modern woman or man today.

For those of you who have no idea what organic pure hemp essential oil is; here’s a brief overview of its history and how it’s made as well as a detailed list of its benefits.




organic pure hemp essential oilHemp, man’s oldest cultivated crop, was well known for its essential oil aroma and therapeutic abilities on the central nervous system.

It was used as an ingredient in the holy anointing oil during Biblical times which consisted of hemp, myrrh, cinnamon and olive oil.

Hemp essential oil was utilized for both medicinal and spiritual purposes: The wealthiest Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans enjoyed the extravagance of lavishing perfumed oils on their body as well as in their luxurious baths.

Steam distillation became common practice during the 11th Century, and by the 16th century many more essential oils were introduced for their healing properties.

Herbal medications and essential oils were still being used up until the Victorian Age, when they were then pushed to the side in favor of pharmaceutical drugs.



Produced exclusively from the flowers of female or hermaphrodite plants by low-pressure steam distillation, it requires 50lbs of flowers to produce 20ml (1oz) of pure oil. After distillation there is no THC or CBD remaining, only the natural essence of the plant.

It is pale yellow to light green in color and the highly concentrated scent of the sativa hemp plant is earthy, sweet, and peppery.

Keep in mind organic pure hemp essential oil is not hemp seed oil which is a product obtained from the pressed seeds of the hemp plant.




Hemp is especially suited for protracted and chronic health problems and pains.  It is a truly holistic oil that works on both a physical and emotional level and offers a wide range of health enhancing benefits. Its properties include:

– Creates feelings of tranquility and peace

– Alleviates skin irritations

– Beneficial for respiratory tract complications

– Relieves asthma

– Boosts energy, optimism & confidence

– Reduces nervousness, fear and apprehension

– Holistic: Opening, releasing, balancing and uplifting

– Hormone balancing: regulates female hormone system (reduces painful cramping with less emotional distress)


As is evident, organic pure hemp essential oil has been cherished throughout history and is commonly used both medicinally and spiritually for its therapeutic abilities and healing properties, due to this it is commonly used as a base oil for other aromatherapy oil blends as well.
