The benefits of hemp essential oil

Hemp essential oil

Hemp essential oil: composition and properties

Essential oils are a natural and very effective alternative to take care of our body and mind, especially to take care of the stress that we suffer daily, almost unconsciously. Essential oil is a substance concentrated in natural volatile aromatic extracts of a plant. Despite its name, it does not contain any oil, only terpenes.

Our hemp essential oil is obtained by the steam distillation method. This consists of passing water vapour through the selected part of the plant, causing the aromatic molecules to condense with it. This results in a mixture of water vapour and different biochemical components. This mixture is then condensed, i.e. cooled to allow the separation of the water and the essential oil, as these two fractions cannot mix in a liquid state (they are said to be "immiscible"). Therefore, we recover the essential oil that is on the surface, because its density is lower than that of water. The remaining water is called hydrosol or floral water.

It takes approximately 900 kg of hemp biomass to obtain one litre of essential oil. This explains its rarity and its price on the market, or at least comparable to that of rose or lavender essential oil, where the yield is much higher and hence its lower price on the market!

Our hemp essential oil contains more than 200 compounds, some of which are recognised in aromatherapy for their very interesting biochemical properties, such as sesquiterpenes, monoterpenes and terpene oxides. As cannabinoids are not soluble in water, our essential oil does not contain tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive molecule in cannabis, nor does it contain CBD. It only contains natural Cannabis aromas and flavours.
