Hemp Seed Oil for Massage – Benefits

Reduced Inflammation

Inflammation can be directly linked with acute pain, particularly in joints and muscles.  The oil may have a natural anti-inflammatory effect helping to reduce inflammation and relieve  discomfort.

Reduce chronic pain

The qualities found in the oil maybe able to help reduce chronic pain.  This oil could be of great benefit to your massage clients.

The oil may also increase blood flow throughout the body and soothe muscle tension.

What is Hemp Oil?

Hemp oil is a dark green to clear light green oil that is cold pressed from seed.  The oil that I use to make Hemp Massage Wax is certified organic oil.

The oil has a long history of use and it is a popular multi-purpose natural remedy used throughout the world. It contains virtually no (THC), which is the psychoactive effect found in cannabis.

The confusion comes from the fact that hemp is a variety of Cannabis Sativa, yes, the same type of plant where CBD comes from. However, the strain used for hemp seed oil production is different from those used in producing CBD oils. Hemp seed has a very low content of cannabinoids, and the processing of the oil further lowers it, if not removes it, from the commercial yield.

Primarily, the oil is incorporated in a diet because of its nutritional value. It contains very little to no THC or CBD and the oil is rather specifically extracted for its healthy fatty acid profile.

We are working on our new massage wax blend right now and will bring it to our store soon.

Winter Massage Wax

Winter Massage Wax

Winter Massage Wax is great for use in summer too and is one of my favorites.  I love the cool, fresh scent and the gentle penetration of the menthol on the skin and the nasal senses.  I would describe Winter Massage Wax as the most sporty of the range of Flow Massage Waxes.  Ideal for all styles of massage from deep tissue, sports and relaxation.

When I first created this blend I decided to call it Winter Massage Wax because of the clearing menthol fragrant quality which is ideal to help clear the sinuses during winter and all year round for those with hay-fever tendencies.  So yes, it’s great in winter but really it’s an all year round massage wax blend.

Winter Massage wax contains rice bran oil, bees wax and arnica infused in organic sunflower oil.  The essential oils used for Winter Massage Wax are Eucalyptus,  Menthol, Peppermint, Wintergreen.

Peppermint as an aid to exercise performance | Journal of Int. Society of Sports Nutrition

Conclusions of a study into peppermint effects for athletes

The results of the experiment support the effectiveness of peppermint essential oil on the exercise performance, gas analysis, spirometry parameters, blood pressure, and respiratory rate in the young male students. Relaxation of bronchial smooth muscles, increase in the ventilation and brain oxygen concentration, and decrease in the blood lactate level are the most plausible explanations.
