Today we are going to talk about Bela Flor Apothecary’s essential oil of hemp. This is a beautiful hemp oil that certainly has a place in your health routines. We add them to our full line of skincare and wellness remedies to ensure maximum benefits for your body’s systems.
A power packed vile of our hemp essential oil delivers big healing benefits in a small bottle. You may have noticed a lot of products on the market today are labeled as “botanically derived terpenes” which are blended to create a similar profile as cannabis sativa L, (aka hemp) but when you see this lingo, buyer beware! They are not pure hemp essential oils, but blends of isolated essential oil compounds from other plants that create a cannabis-like terpene profile. As an organic Apothecary with a focus on sustainability, we believe it’s important to know what you are purchasing and what the quality of that product is.
Through our website, we offer a seasonal selection of oils. They have lots of colorful names! The hybrid varieties we distill have specific smells and qualities that separate our oil from that of industrial hemp varieties. These are not “flavored” oils, but each one brings its own unique properties. Because of the genetics of the plant, there are certain scent profiles that speak to the name. Bela Flor Apothecary's essential oil of hemp are free of additives and artificial flavors, and are 100% pure and unadulterated. Each strain comes with specific healing benefits. To demonstrate, let's talk about two of varieties that are currently available, Sour Space Candy and Cherry Wine. Both are high in myrcene, which protects against DNA damage and protect the body against damaging free radicals. In folk medicine, myrcene has been used as a sleep aid. Here are some ways the two different varieties specialize...
Sour Space Candy — more citrus based with a slightly lemon-lime profile. This oil is higher limonene and terpinolene which elevates mood, has stress relieving properties, is antibacterial/anti-fungal, and improves absorption of other terpenes by way of the skin and mucous membranes, including the digestive tract.
Cherry Wine — more fruity and cherry almond-like. High in beta-caryophyllene which reduces inflammation and lessens pain, and can help with brain function repair related to chronic pain.
On it’s own, the essential oil of hemp has a ton of benefits from aromatherapy and diffusion, to topical application, and internal use. All of the products at Bela Flor include the essential oil of hemp, which promote absorption of the CBD, from our body butters to our Serenity drops.
You can see our wide range of CBD + hemp essential oil products, including our essential oil of hemp, at Bela Flor Apothecary's online store.
Diffusing + Essential Oil of Hemp
One great way to reap the benefits of our high quality essential oil of hemp is to diffuse it. It is great diffused all on its own and also wonderful to blend with some of your other favorite essential oils to create a specific effect. When we inhale essential oils, it effects the brain and in that way can alter one's mood. You can create blends right at home that can effect your mood, ranging from energizing to calming to creating a feeling of euphoria.
As we are coming into late summer, the season brings with it a change in routines for many. During a time when you may be heading back to school, or coming into harvest season, adding diffusion to your routine can help you focus on the tasks ahead. Diffusing the essential oil of hemp can be enlivening for the mind, and so it's a terrific way to start your day, or give yourself that mid afternoon boost.
